Priest (2011) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 8:07 PM, under ,, | 1 comment

Priest seems to have designs on a couple of spectators who thought irreconcilable young devotees of the vampire genre overserved and older demographic that loves his Christian religious mythology with a healthy side moralized of violence. Each has its greatest hits, and never the twain shall meet with blood. Until now.

Except that, historically, the vampire genre has its roots in the Christian faith. Humans respond to their hobbies of the undead with crosses and holy water, superstitions and lasting (for newspapers) the promise of sunshine. The stakes are ritually driven by the heart. Vampires are not evil because they threaten our lives, but because of its threat to extend indefinitely the Earth - a clear challenge to the law of God and an abomination to those who must die. Based on the hit Korean Hyung-Woo Min manwho and directed by Scott Stewart, the priest offers a world in centuries of war between humans and vampires - a holy war is no different from the Crusades - is over for hosts of kick-ass men (and very radical, at least one woman) of the fabric. As if he could have ended differently.

But what follows - and starts Priest - the kind refracted into something a little more advanced for a time that is much more cynical. These priests heroic fight back with problems, social exclusion and without the use of virtually. Are subjected to menial jobs and years of nightmares. The crosses tattooed on the forehead only aggravate their pariah status. Broodiest of them, known simply as, well, a priest (Paul Bettany), stalks through the limits of the city's cathedral - the wall, a dystopian church and state under the influence of Bishop Orel (a limestone Christopher Plummer) and subjected to prayer wheels and the confession booths equipped with video voice-ID software. His brother (Stephen Moyer), Owen, meanwhile, lives in the desert beyond the city, a barbecue, where the border post-apocalyptic in the opposite direction of life and hope are scarce, but at least the leeches confined to reserves.

Or what he thought a horde of vampires haunt him and his family one night. Their mission: to go for kidnapping, virginal daughter Lucy (Lily Collins) in a plot to make retired priest and uncle into the trap of claim vampire leader of the Black Hat (Karl Urban), a priest, once that has an outstanding with his old friend. Only dear Lucy Hicks lawman (Cam Gigandet) landed on the threshold of the new priest with holy orders going rogue, challenging and peel the church across the landscape in nitrocycle HyperSpeed ​​to save Lucy from the clutches of deadly enemy . After all, this is not a job for the police. It never is.

For Stewart and screenwriter Cory Goodman credit until all takes about 10 minutes flat, leaving Priest is 77 minutes in the dark, deserted the action by hand. Even more to their credit, there is something charming in the darkness, no poetry in its desolation. The plot is fine, as vampires, even the cry of the strong, sticky mouths, tearing through space Assing and meat with both grace nervous. (The people of talents "- air rock-step, vertical jumps. - To leave us a chuckle)

But the priest is to compare some of the West, too, and it is not literally the name of a man, Bettany Cast Lead in the kind of convictions more than hockey and 3-D CGI, the darkness. She is psycho-flagellating reverse Bettany criminal cult by the Da Vinci Code, at this point, the faith of the priest is more unstable that his psyche, and they were injured in the eye is to complain that his life of sacrifice is in vain. He may be the ulterior motive or two will continue to Lucy, but in the end, this is just off a warrior who is a priest - and the church and the city and fragmented vampire society-friendly "family members" are willing to recognize that the model they have created together. "I like to kill, it should be easy," said Hicks, after their first roll of a vampire. "It is simply," the priest is responsible, ash and shame. "Easy to deal with it."

Read in this metaphor is what you want but do not go much further. The other pastas are all summer, and exciting enough on it. Shipments Church priestess (Maggie Q) to track the high priest, which takes a little time refreshing - like their predictable, if affecting the romantic background story. Urban is a natural ravages the villain, the killings entire city with curves, free-swinging against the outbreak of members and Cathedral City in his epic of the goods by imposing the death of vampire. He delights in bad lines ("I can feel the blood flowing in your veins, smell dinner") and bad behavior, ultimately revealing the Black Hat successor ambitions ensure confidence.

And you know what? I liked the Priest, I liked the priest, and not very present one of these characters back. The same goes for Scott Stewart, but on the other hand, I've never seen a movie so that the scenes of inactivity on display can be visually confusing than its action sequences, on the other hand Bettany is a manager rare case, which seems to take it. All of this is the intensity of the Stewart Foundation, a camera that loves a good first floor as much as (if not more, honestly), good effects shots. To borrow a description of a priest of this weekend's contemporaries in the mid-budget 3-D in the summer of vampire action movie should not suck. Or is it a faith-based priest vs. evil film? Who knows? In both cases, it works.

This is really what I expected; it was an action flick so I didn’t hope for a thoughtful plot but it was kind of slow. It was refreshing to have grisly vampires instead of the highly romanticized versions like in the “Twilight” series. My boyfriend and I watched it last night through DISH Online. We just moved and haven’t had our dish installed yet but I work for DISH and saved the day with my knowledge of alternative ways to watch.
