Priest Movie Reviews
User reviews on Priest
Definitely not worth the $2.00 we paid to see it! The acting was poor and the action scenes were very unrealistic! Don't waste your money!!!
I did not like this film and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. First of all the movie consisted of so many genres that it was confusing and ended up being very annoying. Visually the film was really good and I wish they did not have any dialogue in this film because it was truly awful. The film did not have enough action and had way too many silly conversation about God and spiritual things that I did not care about at all. The story of the film feels rushed and because of that it is hard to care for the characters and their fates.
This is a horror film adapted from the graphic novel by South Korean artist Min-Woo Hyung and directed by Scott Charles Stewart. I did not like this film and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film was not original at all and it had so many genres mixed into it that it made it confusing and unwatchable. The production value of the film is very high and the editing is quite good but the rest of the film sucks completely. The soundtrack was great as well but it did not trick me into thinking that I was watching an intense and interesting film. Overall, it was totally not worth my time and my money.
It reminded me of the Judge Dread movie... Except with Vampires and the Priests are the law. Worth the wait for netflix, or redbox...
Priest is an unholy mashup of different styles that just doesn't come together. Part western, part vampire movie, part Star Wars, it does what most films of its kind do today: take a really interesting premise, make it look really pretty, and pretty much screw the whole thing up.
Here's the story: There's vampires, and those vampires are shoved into walled cities by the church. The vampires get out, and kidnap the niece of a priest. The priest off to find his niece and vanquish the vampires, followed by a group of other priests who deny the vampires existence. It's a whole bunch of hooey that, played for the right tone could have been a lot of fun.
Unfortunately, director Scott Stewart takes all of this way too seriously. It's a dark, confusing film, with actors who confuse brooding for, well, acting. It's look is pretty interesting, sci-fi Western I'll call it. But that can't make up for the horrible script and confusing editing. It's just more video game masquarading as movie.
