Okay...Movie Review!!

I saw the movie Priest starring Paul Bettany, who I think is a good actor, but seriously scared me in his role as Silas in The Da Vinci Code. Since then, I have recovered after his more somber role as Jarvis in both Iron Man movies plus there was nothing else paranormal or action/hero/villain for me to see at the movies.

Let's just say that Paul Bettany is believable in his role as a priest in a world of humans versus vampires. Maggie Q also shines as a priestess in this movie; however I wish we saw more of her marital arts talents. I was happy to see familiar faces Karl Urban (Lord of the Rings, Star Trek,The Bourne Supremacy) and Cam Gigandet (Twilight) but wasn't impressed with their roles in this movie.

Overall, I thought the movie was okay and that it probably would be better as a book than a movie. The plot and the characters were great; priest that seem dark and mysterious and that can kick ass actually turned out to be appealing and interesting to watch, but the ending was sort of anti-climatic and the movie sort of fell apart in the middle.

I would recommended waiting for the redbox on this one.


  1. I would rank Paul Bettany as one of the creepiest actors in film at the moment. He plays those types of characters so well. Looks like a fun movie, but I agree that I probably will be waiting for Redbox on this one.

    Good review :)

  2. maggie Q is cool!!
