No one realizes that this is actually a comic series... And Scott Stewart RAPED it badly and called it \"new\". I will never siggest this movie to anyone. If anyone wants to watch some thing like this, READ the comics.. They are far better.

unique story but far fetched by a bit! lol good acting for the most part though.. worth watching if you dont have anything else to watch really

It makes me sad that Paul Bettany has been shunted into crappy films and crappy roles like this for the past decade. He's such a good actor and extremely versatile. Not many people can switch effortlessly from a raunchy Geoffrey Chaucer to a crazed albino monk.

I thought this movie was okay, it could of been pushed a little more further in terms of description of the origins and the characters. If this movie was just a build up for the next one then, I'll be waiting for the next one for sure! The concept was very interesting.

In an era where monster mythology has become raw material for all sorts of mediocrity, Priest is one of the best examples of a broad-scale vampire blockbuster. Full Review

This is mildly entertaining for its cheery sacrilege (crucifixes that turn into throwing stars, etc), but once the premise has been rolled out, the movie is about as surprising to watch as the Stations of the Cross. Full Review

It appears that turning the John Ford/John Wayne classic "The Searchers" into the church-vs-vampire adventure Priest was not an altogether god-awful idea. As long as we don't get "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" as an elegiac zombie drama, this adaptation of a graphic novel has some bite. Full Review
Leslie Felperin
Not exactly an unholy mess, but still a rather too pious retread of classic sci-fi/action/horror riffs that lacks originality or pizzazz. Full Review

Priest is based on a series of Korean graphic novels. What it's really based on, though, is other movies - a whole lot of other movies. Full Review
