Priest (2011)



Yes, I like many movies that the critics hate and this is another guilty pleasure. It has a troubled history with its star and director changing over time, production lag, conversion to 3D and release times repeatedly pushed back. The story is based on the Korean graphic novel - Priest (manhwa) although there are significant differences between this storyline and the movie.

Paul Bettany and director Scott Stewart previously teamed in Legion (2010). The director has a keen eye for detail (which makes sense since he started his career in visual effects) but may be lacking a bit on the story telling side.

I found a quote by the director about the storyline interesting. "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."

Box-office receipts imply it almost broke even worldwide. I would have liked to have seen the sequel (the story is left hanging at the end) but since it wasn't a huge hit it seems unlikely. I own it on Blu-ray. 6/10.

Got them both on Blu; 'Priest' 3D (awful 3D, and 2D picture) and 'Legion'. ...Both awful flicks.

A Wanted Man. That looks like Phillip Seymour Hoffman sitting out of focus.

A Most Wanted Man. Close enough. Rachel McAdams in the foreground. Still at Redbox.

Thanks Bill! I really enjoyed this one. I thought PSH was very good, and even Rachel McAdams who I don't think is that great an actress was pretty good.

Looky here!

That second one kind of looks like Guy Pearce in The Rover, but I'm not remembering the scene.

That would be wrong if it was intended as a guess.
