135. Priest

Another great vampire hunting movie! Christiana and I watched Priest and it was really stinkin' good. It's such a shame that this movie didn't make any money in theatres because it is set up perfectly for a sequel.

This movie centers around The Priests who are a group of elite vampire fighters that were formed and trained by the church. Once the war between the humans and the vampires was over the church disbanded this group who now live as social outcasts on the edge of society. They have all these special fighting skills but they can't even find common jobs.

Many years after the group is disbanded there is a rogue vampire attack in the wastelands. The church refuses to recognize that their has been a vampire attack and forbids the character simply called "Priest" (Paul Bettany) from going to investigate and to try and save his niece who was captured by the vampires.

In this day and age the mantra is "To Go Against the Church is To Go Against God" so Priest must decide if he wants to renounce his life and his God to go after his family. Doing so will also make him an outlaw. What will he do?

Like I said, this movie was surprisingly great. Paul Bettany does an excellent job as Priest and Karl Urban doesn't do a bad job either.

Final Verdict: Worth Owning!
