Enjoyed this. The concept (alternate reality world), special effects, action and acting were really top notch (Paul Bettany and Karl Urban are solid action film actors). However the poor script and really obvious linear narrative really stopped this film from living up to its potential. Some of the plot devices where so obvious you saw them coming a mile off (no spoilers from me though). Would recommend to those that enjoy action graphic novel adaptations. If you don't, I reckon this ones not for you.
Really enjoyed it. Know that there is no sequel but hey
This was one of the worst movies we have seen. Cliche clips from other movies, bad acting. And we waited so long to receive it.
The overall concept is all too familiar to Dredd fans. Judges are now Priests, Mutants are Vampires and Cursed Earth is now the Wasteland. The priests even ride jet propelled motocycles.
This is more akin to the orginal Dredd film we were were hoping for and not the Stallone flick we got. It's also easy to see how Urban got the Dredd gig based on this performance.
Priest is a solid film, its just doesn't feel very fresh.
Have to admit this looked better in the preview, but I still really enjoyed it. Paul Bettany is brilliant in this role. Definately worth a watch.
Love this movie! The Priest is so cool. The fight scenes are really good too! I love that none of the main characters died. The vampires were a bit scary to look at though. I would definitely watch this movie again!
Loved every moment of it, hoping they do go ahead with the next film. 9/10
enjoyed it start to finish and look forward to see if this turns into our next big trilogy? bit short is my only critism..i give this a 8 outta 10
