Review: Priest

The 2011 movie, Priest, is about a priest in a post-apocalyptic world who is going to rescue his niece from vampires after they kidnapped her and killed her parents. The priest, a town sheriff and a priestess fight various types of monsters, including vampires, on their way to finding his niece.

The movie stars Paul Bettany as the priest. The film is directed by Scott Stewart and runs 87 minutes.  It is rated PG-13.

For me, it was very boring and dull. It was not long enough to capture the plot. It crammed every point all together.  I also did not like the whole idea of what priests were in the future and how they had to act.

The only good thing about it was that it was only an hour and a half long. I’m kidding. The good thing is that the overall theme of this movie (dark times) fit well with the story.

I would not recommend seeing film. If they make a second movie that explains it better, it might be a better movie. Other than that, do not rent or buy this movie.
