Movie: Priest (2011)

The War is Eternal, His Mission is Just the Beginning.

Priest (2011) is a post-apocalyptic vampire action-thriller movie based on the Korean comic of the same name.

Synopsis: Set in an alternate world, humanity and vampires have warred for centuries. After the last Vampire War, the veteran Warrior Priest (Paul Bettany) lives in obscurity with other humans inside one of the Church's walled-in cities. When the Priest's niece, Lucy (Lily Collins) is kidnapped by vampires, the Priest breaks his sacred vows to hunt them down. He is accompanied by the niece's boyfriend, Hicks (Cam Gigandet), a wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q).

Most of my friends didn't give good comments about this movie. However, I went to the cinema unbiased and without expectations, and I found myself pleasantly surprised and enjoyed watching Priest.

From the director, Scott Stewart:
"The priests of our story are like Jedi knights. They have these supernatural abilities to fight vampires and they saved humanity before the movie even begins. Now, a generation later, society has moved on from war, and the priests are like pariahs. They're almost like Vietnam vets - they've been cast aside by society and they're now reviled and feared."

It feels so good to watch vampires that don't look and act all beautiful and sparkly. (Yes, I despise Twilight.) Priest's vampires are not human and they have different forms - hive drones, guardians, and a Queen. They are photosensitive and they dwell in hives.

Humans bitten by vampires are called Familiars, except
the main villain in the movie, Black Hat (Karl Urban), who becomes a human-vampire when he's "saved" by the Queen.

Winning elements in the movie include the dark cyberpunk-inspired Church City, post-apocalyptic western towns dotting the hostile desert lands, futuristic motorcycles, shotguns, and the Warrior Priests' and Priestess' arsenal of deadly cross-themed blade weapons. Fight scenes are slick, stylish, and well choreographed.

Overall, I honestly say, this is an enjoyable and entertaining movie.
