Priest delivered an action packed supernatural western that dares to question what the vampire was and could be. Where it fails is the writing. Too many tropes and cliches filled the script, the plot was sub-par at best, and all the fault for the movie's downfall drops into the hands of the writers who needed more classes in what really goes into a great story.

Defying his order, a priest sets out to track down a group of vampires who have kidnapped his niece. This movie was lame and dull to watch. the CGI in the film was Shockley bad all the way though.

"Priest" is actually a lot better then I thought it would be. I did not go to see it in 3D in the movies, but enjoyed it nonetheless. The story is standard fare, but the production, visuals and action sequences are all handled with surprising flair. Paul Bettany is perfect in the title role. Also, the great Christopher Plummer drops in for a small, but effective role. Not the greatest movie ever, but there is a lot of fun to be had in this effective science fiction vampire movie.

"Priest" by Yojimbo

In a future society where the human race has enclosed itself in walled cities governed by a fascistic religious state after centuries of war with a race of vampires, an ex-warrior is called upon to help track down the kidnapped daughter of his brother. Switch the jet cycles for horses and vampires for Indians, Priest shows itself to be a sci-fi horror version of John Ford's classic The Searchers. It's actually an adaptation of a Korean graphic novel and it contains all the appropriate slo-mo wire work and flashing blades you'd expect in the post Matrix era and there are some very solid action sequences. The biggest problem with the film is that it's all so derivative; there's an extensive hotch-potch of ideas drawing on various sources but not one of them is remotely original. By far the ...

priest has no spirit and soul

The best part comes with the slow motions during the plus signed metal blades flying and attacking vampires and tearing them up into pieces. The CGI was effective and visuals were enough to give the adrenaline rush. But the scene was so short and even defying laws of physics the score was not pumping. The worst part is when the vows are repeated again and again lengthening the dialogue. Where is the editing department go now. Are they searching for another effective dialogue? and finally thanks for the director to take a careless casting. Priest is directed by Scott Stewart written by Cory Goodman based on graphic novel series by Min Hoo Yung. It is distributed and presented by Sony Entertainment. According to me I had slight happiness when the visuals worked, but very much disappointed ...

Priest (2011)

The war between humans and vampires has always been going on, but the humans created a elite group of powerful warriors known as the Priests in an attempt to vanquish the vampires which they did successfully. Now the priests have been disbanded and live in obscurity among the other down trodden human inhabitants in walled-in cities ruled by the Church with no other real skills other then slaying vampires. One night a family member is kidnapped by a murderous pack of vamps, however nobody believes that this is the case because the vampire threat has gone, so one lone priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out, against orders, to find her before they turn her into a familiar (one of them). He is joined on his crusade by the novice sheriff (Cam Gigandet) of the town recently attacked, and ...

I got a very Legion vibe from watching the trailers, which is not a good thing. I agree the movie was much too slow for such an outlandish premise - other than that crazy old lady, I can honestly say nothing much else sticks with me from that movie. I'll probably rent Priest some day, but won't see in the theater.

See, I watch this trailer, and I think "Aww yeah! Priests vs Vampires! Some fun genre trash." but then I remember the director. He's not very well known, but his one "notable" movie is Legion, a movie that somehow made "Angels vs Zombies" horrifical ly boring. I watch this trailer now, and I just  think about how boring it's probably going to be.

this looked cool, and then i realized how much they've bastardized the license. instead of a undead priest fighting demons in the old west, they turned it into a guy named priest who fights something we haven't seen in films for a long time now....f*cking vampires. The trailer still looks pretty cool but they should have just abandoned the license altogether for someone to make a faithful movie out of. the comics are really good, dark and creepy.
