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 a deadly Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) who possesses extraordinary fighting skills and makes an impressive kick-ass action heroine. Karl Urban is great as the Priest's dark nemesis and Christopher Plummer stars as the misguided head of the church.
