The star and director of 2010's Legion reteam for a vampire-bashing post-apocalyptic melee but ClickOnline's Daniel Anderson was left unimpressed by what he could see through the 3D murk.
I thought the trailers looked terrible for this one so I'm not surprised at all with the review or the score. I doubt I'll be seeing Priest anytime soon.
Hence why they did not screen it for the press and used a lame post filming 3D conversion.
I thought this was going to be a b movie but turbed to a d- what a bummer
Another huge sign is the Pg 13 rating. Clearly its R rated subject matter that was toned down to get the tween and teen dollars. Just watch we will get an unrated DVD in a few months.
Thats what i didnt understand. On Conan he advertised it as "Vampires are scary and gory again" Well you can't get that with a PG 13 rating...you just get a slightly creepy Twilight creep.
The name really turning me off to begin with. Then one of the trailers grasped my attention, then got ruined by them extending it. The cuts they made really covered up the 2000 CGI effects the movie has. You know the shiny looking textures so it doesn't blend and look real... That and the British accents...sorry to be an American but I can only take the heavy British accent for so long and i just watched two movies with it....
They had press screenings in Ireland - though maybe they shouldn't have!
Well that's disappointing, is it at least better than legion? lol
It'd be hard not to be better than Legion xD
Don't know, I'll have to go see. Legion was disappointing wasn't it?
It was a pretty throwaway movie but it wasn't the worst movie I ever saw
I liked Legion for a long time, until the ridiculous ending. Imo, this is worse than Legion.
I was almost convinced this movie might be good because for the life of me I couldn't understand why it was being released in the busy summer months. It looks like it should have come out in the dead of winter. Could very be this years Jonah Hex and a strong razzie contender. And what I hear it shares barely any resmeblance to the comic it's based on.
@above, I think legion had a good ending, just very poorly executed. In addition, for a movie about the end of the world, it didn't have enough scope, the entire time it was in a diner or 10 miles further in the middle of nowhere, and then a 2 minute scene in the city. I really doubt Priest is worst than that.
Ouch, yeah I am not surprised at all, this movie looks terrible
I have to admit, this never looked appealing to me. But then I recently saw another trailer for it that had bits that looked a bit entertaining (maybe on a rental/Netflix level). But judging by reviews, my first impression was right. Who knows, though. Maybe when they bring it to Netflix Instant I might check it out for the simple fact that I really like Paul Bettany.
He is a good actor. I thought he did an outstanding job in the DaVinci Code.
He's always believable but I've never been a fan of his American accent. The man was born with some of the coolest delivery on the planet, why mangle it by making him translate?
