PRIEST Movie Review



FANDANGO:

A warrior priest (Paul Bettany) disobeys Church law by teaming with a young sheriff (Cam Gigandet) and a beautiful priestess (Maggie Q). The three band together to track down a band of renegade vampires who have kidnapped the priest's niece before they turn her into one of them.


MY REVIEW:

I will forewarn you, I love Vamps, any kind of Vamp, but especially the guelly kind that are ugly, animalistic and .... hungry. Priest delivered a scifi, twisted, off ball tale of a future where Vamps tried to eat the world. The war's in the past, the Priest have retired, but then there's a twist. A former Priest was turned and the Vamps are back. He leads the animalistic Vamp, kidnaps a former Priest's daughter and Paul - the warrior Priest goes against the 'church (a twisted view of the catholic church) to save her. Overall this was an okay film, it had much more potential but it was entertaining and suspenseful. It kept me watching. I give it 3 out of 5 fangs.

Great review. I think I'll wait to see this. I am a big fan of Paul, too. Oh well.

I loved the old west combined with scary, new-age vampire theme but didn’t watch the whole movie. My two pre-teen boys were totally captivated with it this weekend when I put it on after a long day of camping. I was so glad to setup DISH’s Tailgater and have the boys in the camper while my husband and I had some time to ourselves by the fire. I work for DISH so it was great to know about the tailgater as soon as it came out, http://goo.gl/vd4M4. The Tailgater will always be something I make sure we take camping with us in the future.
