The Twenty-First Century

Priest [2011]

If you’re looking for a solid popcorn flick to sink your teeth in, this ain’t it. I hated “Priest”. Hated, hated, hated it. Hated every single audience insulting moment of it. Hated Director Scott Stewart and his stupid belief that anyone would be entertained by it. Hated the fact that legendary actor Christopher Plummer agreed to star in this terrible mess. Hated Paul Bettany’s annoying character “Priest”, who is trained to kill vampires in the name of the church and God (how clever!). Hated the stupid non-existant 3D (the film was shot in 2D and converted into 3D during post-production). Hated Cam Gigandet and his belief that he can actually act (the dude has already starred in two of the worst movies I’ve seen so far this year: this and the God-awful “The Roommate”). Hated the fact that the ending leaves the doors open for a sequel (one can only wish the filmmakers would have concentrated more on the film they were making rather than eyeing the one they might make next). Hated the fact that this movie makes “Legion” look like “The Godfather” in comparison (yes it is that bad!). But most of all, I hated the thought that this was supposed to be a cross between “The Searchers” and “Blade” (John Wayne must be rolling in his grave as we speak). Oh and did I mention how much I hated this film?

Fiasco! (and that’s me being generous).

  1. I think he owes us a refund and should stop making movies all together ! I keep trying to find a website that belongs to Scott Stewart so I can give that a-hole a piece of my mind! These filmmakers need to know we the viewer is not going to take this shit any more!

    • Totallly agree! Plus the 3D was pure crap. They ripped us off twice. I cant believe someone could enjoy this movie. Hopefully if this one fails at the box office, they will pull the plug on the sequel!

  2. yes 3D these days is becoming annoying! i mean look at inception! the film with the most special effects didnt need 3D at all to succeed!

  3. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!
