I just saw this movie in a poster when we watched Pirates of the Caribbean at Greenbelt. A few months later, I was watching it to know what it is about. Basically, “Priest” is the term they call to a special unit of vampire killers in the movie. It was a war between the Church and vampires where the vampires were stronger, faster and can split a human in just one attack. The church trained people to be “priest” and used them against the vampires. After the vampire threat has been eliminated, the “priests” were disbanded and they were forced to live normal lives until… a vampire attack happened. Btw, The vampires before were “creatures” until the “queen vampire” managed to create a human vampire (like Edward Cullen!).
The church rule in the movie is absolute. They have all these rules and regulations, and if you disobey them, they say that it’s like disobeying God. To anyone who tries to disobey them, they threat with excommunication and even death as they control the government and the military. But one priest still disobeyed them because he had a personal rescue mission to do.
Anyway, I liked the action scenes in Priest especially on the “throw-rocks-in-the-air-to-be-used-as-a-stepping-stone” scene. There wasn’t any development for the “priests” as they were very strong from the start and until the end. Also, what’s with the near-the-ending where it just happened like that (avoiding spoilers). All their hard work gone in a few seconds. Poor them.
I’m hoping for a Priest Movie part two because I’m sure they are going to wage another war against vampires or make it a three way battle against the church too. Go Go Go !
