The intro in the past is sublime, starting with a group of grizzled warriors journeying to slay the vile witch queen that has cursed the countryside. Their epic first encounter is akin to the classic first shootout in “Aliens,” a scene of palpable suspense and terror as man first meets monster.
Once the story jumps into the present, the story falls into a sillier mess of clichés. The immortal hero could have a very interesting personality or complex perspective on life, yet here he is unfortunately turned into the same sarcastic badass that is a retread from any old underwritten Stallone role. Diesel’s generally leaden delivery doesn’t help differentiate the character much either.
Thankfully, there is still a lot of great action with some good scares, a solid supporting cast, and ample FX ranging from colorful monsters, wild spells to fanciful set design. The story might be corny or predictable at points, but it still has a lot of fun for the right fans of unapologetic action.
It felt a bit like a role playing game if one of the guys has the main character and his two buddies/friends have agreed to play supporting characters, one with secrets and one with powers of the opposing team. The scenes were cool, the effects good and over all the story was a good one as far as any story about witches and immortals can be. Speaking of immortals, it is nice to see one that enjoys being impossible to kill but keeping the good path under his feet and not lamenting the fact that everyone he knows or loves has died. Much better than many of the films in this genre.
Now that were past that, I love the actor's portrayal. Every person on screen performs their role excellently. Vin Diesel is a bad-ass, that girl warms up to him and starts kicking ass, and even "Frodo"(I'm certain hes from Lord of the Rings) fills his niche perfectly. The only knock I can conceive, is the script for the movie could be more inventive. If we forgive the story for its basic magical roots, then this movie may even rival "Riddick"
(It's closer to a rival than many other movies I've seen)
