Movie: Priest (2011)
Overall Rating: 4 / 5
General Impression: I enjoyed this movie. It felt a bit nostalgic for two reasons, the first being that it felt like a classic blockbuster from when I was a kid that you got excited to go to the movies to watch. The second was it was based on a Korean graphic novel, the kind I would have read when I was in high school.
I didn't know it was based on a graphic novel until after I watched the movie and it makes sense: the different spin on "Church" and "Religion", the "Wild West", and "Vampire" concepts were well done and without having read the novel, I can't fault the cinematic result. I'm a Paul Bettany and Karl Urban fan and so I was a little biased when I say I think the acting was great.
It's kind of a niche movie so I recommend it if you're into this genre (dystopian, paranormal, action, etc).
