Another broad yet eclectic little genre-blender to (maybe) toss into your rental queue.

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

The good news is that Priest is not nearly as painful to sit through as Legion. But that's about it for the good news.

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

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

anyone who has seen the trailer has seen a good 80% of anything worth watching here

90 minutes of inconsequential action and cliché recycling...painful to watch a semi-interesting setup get squandered and become stuffed into a familiar-as-hell framework where nothing ever seems at stake.

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.

Bettany is a great actor who does melancholy very well, he also has a sense of mischief. It would be nice to see it shine a bit before it, too, fades to grey.

Its visual style veers between bleached desert tones and slimy undercover dankness, but the 3D version is undistinguished.

Some scenes on the train have a certain chill, but overall this is likely to short-change genre lovers.

At the very least, the film's herky-jerky mood swings will keep viewers on their toes long after they become bored with the main plot.

What's not to like about badass Catholic vigilantes who fly through the air to punch demons in the face? (Don't answer that.)

Predictable action sequences & lazy character development add up to an all too blatant cash in at the box office

Vampires, cowboys and warrior priests: an unholy mess.

Priest 3D might be of interest for those keen on the comics but for others it's a very loud and chaotic but lame fantasy effort with much mayhem but insufficient payoff.

Director Scott Stewart has fun with the genre, making effective use of 3D technology and amid the ridiculous, delivers an often surprisingly compelling B-movie with some superior elements.

...as dull and intolerable an actioner as one can easily recall...

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