4.0 out of 5 stars Blade Meets Aliens In Mad Max Land May 13, 2011
Format:DVD
This visually arresting film is sure to please those looking for a popcorn-y monster movie diversion. The plot's not much to write about (based on a series of graphic novels:Priest: Genesis - Volumes 1-3), but the visual interpretation is at times nearly breathtaking on the big screen (especially in 3D). The priests are a special cadre of warriors commissioned by The Church (the new world's governing body) to hunt down and eradicate vampires in the land. According to the comic book-style animated backstory, they accomplished their mission and were disbanded. But wait, not so fast. Despite The Church's unexplained objections and denials, there may be vampire trouble brewing outside the protective walls of the cities. One priest renounces his vows to save a girl held captive by the marauding beasts.

This is a world that looks like Utah's stark salt flats without life or greenery, but with lots of space where one can really zip around on super-cool jet-powered motorcycles. The cities are grotesque gothic masses of steel and randomly placed video screens straight out of a monochrome version of Blade Runner - The Final Cut (Two-Disc Special Edition). The sets are stark and at the same time fantastic. One feels the clausterphobia and despair of a world without natural light or color. The CGI set designers seemed to take great care in developing a convincing post-apocalyptic wasteland, but the results are uneven.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty bad-ass overall August 18, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Dont get me wrong...this isnt an amazing display of acting or screenplay or what have you. However, what it definitely was....was bad ass. The imagery and landscapes were cool, the fighting was pretty neat, the characters were approachable, and the weapons were pretty awesome. It's only an hour and a half long, so you arent going to get that finely detailed development of a drama, but do you really need it? Nope. Basically, it's bad asses killing some creepy looking vampires, and feud between Priest and A) the Church (in this case, representing society and government along with the dogma and the deceit that comes with it), B) an old buddy turned nemesis, and C)occasionally with what is basically his sidekick.
I'll avoid revealing too much of the story, as sparse as it is, although you'll basically know what's going on within the first ten minutes or so.
To me,this was a movie made strictly to develop interest in a longer running series of movies, which promise to be even more bad-ass.
Excellent effort, worth the minor time commitment, pleasing to the eye. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great comic book action flick May 29, 2011
Format:DVD
I'm sorry, "graphic novel" action film.

All sarcasm aside, "Priest" was exactly as advertised; excellent science fiction action, well suited for popcorn. And I enjoyed the heck out of it.

In an alternate earth, the Church and vampires have been at war for centuries. Technology didn't offer the solution, recruiting and training extraordinary fighters, the Priests, did. And when the church had won, and the vampires were contained in underground reservations, the Priests were not needed. The Church marginalized the Priests, and didn't want to admit that their control was incomplete, so when the vampires escaped the reservation and raided a farm house, they didn't want to acknowledge that the vampires were loose, or that the Priests were needed again. But the settlers killed and kidnapped by the vampires were friends of a Priest.

While Paul Bettany delivered an outstanding performance (of its sort) in the title role, Maggie Q, Karl Urban, and Christopher Plummer really carried it for me. Bettany delivered the brooding warrior priest very well, delivering intensity and portraying a man trying to reconcile conflicting duties well. The role didn't allow him great range, but he did the most with it. Maggie Q was allowed a far greater range as another Priest with chaste love for the hero. Her roles are getting more serious, and she is finally getting a chance to show her abilities. Well, she's always gotten to show off her martial arts gifts, and she does again here too. Karl Urban also gets a well earned, central role in this one, but aside from saying that he does an excellent job in a different character from earlier roles, I can't go further without spoilers.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3D Review by a 3D Connoisseur October 14, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
POST-PRODUCTION 3D (converted from 2D to 3D)

Action Packed Gore and Horror

My ratings are based mainly on the QUALITY OF THE 3D, not the video content.

There are about 38 out of screen effects that extend about 5% of the way, from the screen to the viewer and 34 at 10%. They were hard to count because about half of each are just split second effects.

I counted another 8 OOS effects between 20% and 30%. 4 of the 8 are floating smog flakes or sparks. The maximum effect is at 52:00 minutes while sparks are floating around ONE SINGLE SPARK floats in from 50%. 2 of the 8 are vamps jumping out to 25% at 33 and 45:30 minutes. The last 2 of the 8 are throwing stars briefly floating in slow-mo at 33:20 and a cross shaped throwing knife bowing out to 25% at 75:15.

The in screen 3D depth is excellent in over half of the movie (mainly in the brighter scenes), but the remainder of the 3D is somewhat muted due to some overly dark scenes, smog, smoke or dust. The nature of the script is this films biggest 3D downfall.

With that said, I enjoyed the 3D movie for what it was and give it a 4 star thumbs up!

*** Almost no flaws in the 3D ***
*** of the clear, bright scenes ***

MY 3D RATING = GOOD to VERY GOOD (poor, fair, good, very good, excellent)

Note: As far as the percentages go, everyone's eyes are different. What I see at 25% you may see at 15% or 35%. To fully realize how far something is out of the screen for you, pause on an effect and direct a partner with an extended finger to the tip of what you are seeing. You may be surprised.
