The War is Eternal. His Mission is Just the Beginning.
A western-fused post-apocalyptic thriller, Priest is set in an alternate world—one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (Paul Bettany, Legion) from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church.
When his niece (Lily Collins) is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on an obsessive quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece's boyfriend (Cam Gigandet, Burlesque), a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.
Based on the graphic novel series Priest, the film also stars Brad Dourif (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest), Christopher Plummer (The Last Station) and Madchen Amick (Damages).
Reviews Counted: 94
Rotten: Its visual style veers between bleached desert tones and slimy undercover dankness, but the 3D version is undistinguished.-Philippa Hawker, The Age (Australia), August 25, 2011
Rotten: Some scenes on the train have a certain chill, but overall this is likely to short-change genre lovers.-David Stratton, At the Movies (Australia), August 25, 2011
Rotten: At the very least, the film's herky-jerky mood swings will keep viewers on their toes long after they become bored with the main plot.-Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia), August 25, 2011
Rotten: Predictable action sequences & lazy character development add up to an all too blatant cash in at the box office-, FILMINK (Australia), August 25, 2011
