Priest is a lousy action movie with boring characters, a convoluted plot, and, most unforgivable, very little compelling action.

"Priest" is one of those films you will forget about approximately five minutes after it's over. There is absolutely nothing memorable or noteworthy about it

It's a lot of talky-talky and very little smashy-smashy.

'Priest' is about five beads shy of a rosary.

Vampires, cowboys and warrior priests: an unholy mess.

The over-optimistic promise of a sequel will hopefully be one premise which remains dead and buried. For ever and ever. Amen.

Bettany has little character and the 3D effects are appalling.

Lately, it feels like there are two things you can count on in a Screen Gems movie. 1) It will suck. 2) It will feature Cam Gigandet. And he will suck.

A dourly humourless, futuristic farrago.

The film, based in name only on a series of South Korean graphic novels, has nice, washed-out desert exteriors and some cool jet-powered motorcycles, but there's nothing in the hackneyed story or the derivative action scenes to make you take notice.

The action's fairly toothless, and the abrupt, anemic ending promises a sequel. The filmmakers will have to pray pretty hard for that miracle.

On a visceral level, Priest offers enough action and cool bits to probably hold the interest of most 14-year-old boys, but its hodgepodge story and overall derivative nature make it feel like a movie that should have come out back in the '90s.

There's an overriding sense that many aspects of the movie have either been shockingly underdeveloped... or left on the cutting room floor.

Paul Bettany in a cassock with a cross biroed on to his forehead, potholing with vampires. In 3D.

Matt's Movie Reviews

An ugly exercise in genre filmmaking and religion bashing, Priest marks a new low in the action/horror hybrid, and once again proves why Paul Bettany is the worst action star working today.

In the way it unimaginatively regurgitates familiar genre elements in service of preachy piousness, director Scott Charles Stewart's cinema is the equivalent of Christian rock.

Too good-looking to be dismissed entirely, not bad enough to be worthy of outright scorn, but not good enough to watch, either.
