"Priest" by Yojimbo

Yojimbo - wrote on 05/29/2012

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 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.
