From Amazon.co.uk

What's harder to kill than a vampire? The thriving vampire movie genre, which reappears here in the form of Priest, an entertaining mash-up of sci-fi, horror, and various westerns adapted from a graphic novel by Min-Woo Hyung and starring Paul Bettany (The Da Vinci Code, Creation, Iron Man, etc.) in the title role. In Hyung's world (as depicted by screenwriter Cory Goodman and director Scott Charles Stewart), the future is a dystopian nightmare still reeling from centuries of conflict between humans and vast armies of slimy, humanoid vampires; having been saved (or so we're told) by fierce and noble warrior priests, people now live in a great, grim city that makes the Los Angeles depicted in Bladerunner look like a vacation resort, while the remaining vampires have been consigned to "reservations" in the desert. A few hardy souls subsist out in the barren wilderness as well, and the fun starts when a gang of vamps attacks one family, abducting pretty young Lucy (Lily Collins, Phil's daughter) and killing her parents. The girl's sharpshooting boyfriend (Cam Gigandet) seeks out Bettany's retired Priest, who's only too willing to defy the dire warnings of the arrogant clergymen who control the cities, jump on his supercycle, and head out to do battle with a foe that, far from being defeated, has been regrouping and now plans to--gasp!--lay waste to all mankind. A couple of twists involving central characters are eventually revealed, but the best parts are the action sequences in the vampires' enormous "hive," aboard (and on top of) a speeding train, and elsewhere as the Priest and a few of his cross-bearing (on their foreheads, that is) comrades, including action veteran Maggie Q, try to stop the head vampire dude (basically a fanged version of Clint Eastwood's Man with No Name) and his ravenous minions. Considering the range of 21st-century vampire flicks, from the arty Swedish import Let the Right One In to the romantic Twilight series, there's plenty of room for a popcorn chewer like Priest. --Sam Graham

Brazil. Dark City. Franklyn. Blade Runner. Equilibrium. The Matrix. Mad Max. Pitch Black. Underworld. Blade II. Constantine. The work of HR Giger and Westerns in general. If you are fans of these movies and the sci-fi/fantasy genre, plus the new wave of the quirky western mish-mash, then this is the movie for you. Director Scott Stewart, who also directed Paul Bettany in the religious horror shoot-em-up `Legion', delivers a shameless homage to all these movies whilst also blending something original into the mix. Out of the blend comes a highly enjoyable post-apocalyptic action picture that arrives at a frontier town of gunslingers, sheriffs and fraudulent moonshine salesman via a futuristic freight express train that thunders across a `cursed earth' familiar to any 2000AD reader.

An opening animated crawl that plays over the opening credits tells of great war between humans and vampires that, after the defeat of the vampire race, lead to humanity retreating inside walled-off Orwellian futuristic cities - administered by a ruling religious council and surrounded by the cursed earth. When a surprise re-appearance off a horde of salivating vampires attack a western-style homestead in the barren wasteland, killing the husband and wife custodians and kidnapping the daughter, The Priest (Paul Bettany) disobeys the dictats of the ruling council of elders and journeys off into the cursed earth on his aircraft engine-powered desert motorcycle to rescue her. He is accompanied by Hicks (Cam Gigandet), a young sheriff and fiancé of the kidnapped girl known as Lucy (Lily Collins).

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good action film... 24 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Despite some of the reviews, I quite enjoyed this vampire action movie and it looked great in it's 3D splendour, interlaced with comic book type graphics and futuristic styled backdrops. Paul Bettany plays his roll with sufficient gusto and ably assisted by the rest of the cast, and the fight scenes and special effects are well done for a movie of this genre. If newer style vampire films are your thing, then this should not disappoint, especially in 3D.

3.0 out of 5 stars Popcorn action-horror with Priest 16 July 2012
Format:DVD
Priest is a 2011 vampire movie starring Paul Bettany (Legion), Maggie Q (Die Hard 4.0, Mission Impossible III), Karl Urban (Doom, Chronicles of Riddick, Ghost Ship) and Cam Gigandet (Pandorum, The Unborn) and is based on the Korean graphic novel by Hyung Min-woo. I wasn't sure quite what to expect from this one. Having watched the trailer, I thought it looked ok but it was pointed out to me by a dear friend that "You liked Van Helsing, of course you'll love that nonsense."

I enjoy horror, of course I do. I enjoy alternate history horror where artistic license has been taken with real events. Steampunk type adventures interest me too. However, what we have here with Priest is, at its base level, an action movie with a horror aspect rather than vice versa.

That is not to say I didn't enjoy it, far from it. As an action movie, I feel it stood up very well and reminded me at various points of a number of movies. The Priests and the setting for this film are effectively Judge Dredd (coincidentally, Karl Urban will be seen as Judge Dredd in 2012's Dredd) , The fight sequences are very much stylised martial arts coreography and the general feel is very much that of a Western. That enough of a mash-up for you?!

The vampires in Priest make a nice change from the usual bloodsuckers we see and are certainly far from the angsty sparkly nonsense of certain films. With Priest, the vampires are photosensitive cave dwellers who live in hives. Any human bitten by them either dies or becomes a familiar; they do not turn.

The cast here have done very well with the subject matter presented before them. Bettany is compelling as the tortured lead, Maggie Q holds her own as always, Urban is suitably sinister as the villain and Cam Gigandet is believable as the young lawman.

4.0 out of 5 stars A standard tune 8 Jun 2014
Format:DVD
But most of the notes are well played and in the right order.

I like Paul Bettany and I like Karl Urban. I think they're both better than many of their movies.

This is absolutely formulaic, everything, but everything, including the dialogue is familiar. In a scene, it's fun to try to predict the exact words that are coming up.

However, it's all done pretty well. Effects are mostly nice, a little bit ropey CGI in a couple of places. The acting, well, everything asked for. The backdrops are wonderful and there' are visual elements reminiscent of one of my favourite movies, Casshern (though VERY different, I know). The fights- Ok, but ten a penny today, you know?

I feel four stars is a tad generous, but for type, definitely right. Otherwise, because it's just good formulaic fun maybe three stars. That goes to 3 1/2 average, and today I round up. That suggests I enjoyed it more than Gravity- which I did, because I didn't expect technical accuracy, so that wasn't nagging at me like toothache or screaming at a hangover as it was on occasion in Gravity.

I also like some of the deleted scenes, where the production methods can be seen.

Brilliant it isn't, but many lauded movies are worse.
