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).
