Overview

In a world ravaged by wars between humans and vampires, a renegade priest fights to rescue his niece from the legions of bloodsuckers who seek to transform the young girl into one of them. A battle-weary veteran of the last vampire war, warrior Priest (Paul Bettany) now resides in a heavily fortified city where the ruling Church is a greater menace than any creature of the night. When a pack of vampires abduct Priest's niece (Lily Collins), the vengeful holy man breaks his vows and promises to save the young innocent from a fate worse than death. He can't do it alone, but with a powerful warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) and his niece's boyfriend, a sharp-shooting sheriff (Cam Gigandet), on his side, Priest may have a fighting chance. Stephen Moyer, Karl Urban, and Brad Dourif co-star.

Priest 3.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

To start, let me say that I watched this movie only because (1) I like vampire movies and (2) I love Karl Urban. My expectations were very low. Well, it was so much better than I expected. It's not great art, by any means, and there were a number of places where some additional exposition would have been very useful. Almost every vampire movie - from classic to modern - is full of plot holes, and Priest is no exception. However, the cast, particularly Paul Bettany, Maggie Q, Karl Urban and Christopher Plummer, was very good (and the rest of the cast was perfectly respectable), the monsters were monstrous, Karl was a great villain (none of your angsty vampires here - Black Hat is a total badass), and the action sequences were lots of fun. And the movie had style to burn. If you're in the mood for careful plotting and deep meaning, this isn't the movie for you. But if you'd like something a bit different in the vampire movie genre, give it a try. I watched the movie for free on SyFy, but I like it enough that I'm actually about to pay money so I can own it and see the DVD extras.

It has potential. Seemed way to rushed at times and the supposed twists came too early.
