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

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.

That's what churches are for... get in a man's way (especially when he needs to kill a horde of vampires).

As happens with big-screen comics, the dialogue fizzles at times. But mostly this is a delicious mash-up of styles and genres: gothic, steampunk, Wild West, martial arts, dystopian fun.

[If] you're looking for a diverting sci-fi actioner that handily mixes the DNA of several different movies, with a few flying crosses thrown in and a heavy dose of Western mythology, sink your teeth in.

It's admirable how a movie with so many obvious influences and references can offer an experience that still feels like its own thing.

A surprisingly effective piece of genre filmmaking, littered with flaws but none so glaring as to sink the film as a whole.

...society is protected by a band of licensed-to-kill clergy who power up with prayer and shoot cross-shaped ninja stars.

In an era where monster mythology has become raw material for all sorts of mediocrity, Priest is one of the best examples of a broad-scale vampire blockbuster.

[E]ven though it's easy to point out how derivative it is in a lot of ways, it's also sort of thrilling in how spare and clean and unself-conscious it is about itself...

A mélange of apocalyptic western, gothic horror and vampire action movie, Priest won't win any awards for originality. Still, it's streamlined and executed well enough to earn a tip of the cap from those in its target demo.

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.
