Plot:

The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including Kaulder, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the Queen curses Kaulder with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today Kaulder is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to Kaulder, the Queen Witch is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.

    Thought it would be a Witch Hunter movie after a long time, and something new with Vin Diesel. But this is the worst movie ever except Vin Diesel’s good performance as always.SPOILERS AHEAD :The biggest mistake, when Kaudler goes to hunt the Witch Queen alone in the end, she takes his immortality away from him. Now he’s a normal human but she is still not powerful enough to kill him with her QUEEN magical powers(however she kills Dolan 37th, his partner as a human within 2 secs.) And the secondary villain Belial is capable of killing Kaudler even when he is immortal!!!!!!!!! WHAT A CRAP…!!!!!!!!

    Coming off the set of fast 7 I believed this film was going to be great. Watching this films trailer it looked like it was going to be based in medieval times. Think of my surprise I had watching this film in modern day. The trailer lied. Another point is that Elijah wood shouldn’t of been in this movie, not just did his performance such but since the Lord of the rings trilogy, he’s had no success with his acting career. Michael Cain did a good job as always but it seems like they under used the best asset that the film had. And not to mention the cliché story of a man hell bent of revenge because he lost his wife and son, only to find that he falls in love for another woman.In conclusion do not watch this film, because you’d have better fun ripping your nails off.

    First of all, this movie was not good. It was like they spent all of the budget on actors and were like “oh dang now we gotta find a script”. They did find one. In a bar at 3am written by the bartender who couldn’t stand on his feet anymore. The plot twists were like “oh here we go again”. Vin Diesel. I didn’t like his performance. Caine was great. Leslie too. There was some good cgi. Some of it was good. Not all.I gave it a 3 for effort. I watched this with my girlfriend and she hated it with a passion. She just wanted to see it because of GoT. I thought well it has Vin Diesel so it will be some nice action. That brings me to the only good point in this movie besides the actors (except vinnie gasoil); the action. That was well done. Again not all of it. Some.Do you see how much i used “some” here?

    Take the movie blade, subtract the excitement, Wesley snipes cool factor and all the kung fu fighting, what you’re left with is a dull been done a thousand times before, and better I might add, film titled “The last witch hunter”. The title alone should turn you off, “only snakes on a plane” or “Abraham Lincoln vampire hunter” sound worse. Look, Vin Diesel was cool in the first 5 fast and furious movies, and I did like Saving private ryan (he was killed pretty early on) but other then that I think his days of being a A-list name are over. Maybe he should stick to roles that only have one line “Grout” Forget him and save your time and money the witch hunter isn’t worth either.

    Vin Diesel plays Witch hunter who is cursed with immortality, he goes there the centuries preventing any supernatural disasters from happening. Until a mysterious figure appears that may have a connection to his past. It’s up to him to uncover the secret before a disaster may come afoot? The film is not bad, but not great either. It spots they could have done better that what they have done. I do admire that it does not try to be over the top with camp. Vin Diesel does give quite a sophisticated performance, at no point I fell he never tries to over do it. Elijah Wood is also memorable in his role. And the effects are alright, an entertaining movie to pass the time.

    Clearly timed, in fact rushed, for the upcoming Halloween holiday (no big revelation here), this horror-schlock is resembling a typical holiday souvenir stand: an assortment of cheap, popular items, all mixed up together without taste or general concept, but everyone that stops by will find something to one’s liking. Vin Diesel and his helium-soaked voice are sleepwalking through the main role just like the stand employee, who is in his mind at home with his family, but he just has to make it through the shift somehow.Diesel makes it, in some sort of brooding, drab performance, thinking that this is how one portrays a tired old man, which is what his character is supposed to be. The story that revolves around him is a convoluted mixture of popular horror motives and ideas from bigger and lesser films, and first that come to mind are “Highlander”, “Blade”, “Underworld”, “Mummy” and “Constantine”. Really, if you’ve seen any of those five – don’t bother with this one, it will bore you to untimely death.If you, however, do wish to pay tribute to the Halloween by seeing a suitable film, prepare for one that is unevenly and uninspiredly directed and acted, filmed in a generic, overly dark cinematography that will from time to time be interrupted by jarringly kitschy and colorful dream-shots. There may be some art in all that but it is as nonsensical as all the complicated rules the film throws at the viewer in many boring expository scenes – which then itself forgets to follow (the script must have come directly from some goth kid’s diary). There is a couple of twists thrown in to atone for the absence of a proper culmination. There are some history lessons, just to try to make the story relevant. There are also Michael Caine and Elijah Wood, making underwritten and probably expensive cameos. There’s the predictable ending and a set up for the sequel.If they promise the Plague wins the next time, I’m up for it all the way. Meanwhile, I’m thinking of buying a witch mask and trolling policemen on the block in it, just to make up for the seriously underwhelming experience of seeing this.

    I nearly fell asleep during the first act of the movie.I never understood the basic premise of this movie. All it was was just green screen filled, cartoon looking, silly acted crap with cliché horror and action movie tropes. What a disappointment, what a waste of my money and time. I’m giving Vin Diesel and Michael Caine props however with 3 stars for their chemistry that they were able to bring in a movie that clearly wanted to waste the talents of every cast member with each of their undeveloped characters.They even made Elijah Wood bad in this movie. I’m not saying that he is a bad actor, but he gave a pretty bad performance in this movie. I wouldn’t exactly say that this movie is the worst thing I’ve ever seen, but at the same time, I’m not going to suggest watching this movie again to myself.Anyone else I’m sure could probably get stoned or get drunk and still have a great time with The Last Witch Hunter, but I am neither a alcoholic or a stoner and hope I never have to be, and so therefore I didn’t enjoy this movie a lot.3/10

    Bit of a mess all around this.Never really got off the ground and the script was a load of nonsense.Acting was only ever tepid and the sets were not good at all..Michael Caine was just in it for a few quid and Van Diesel can look forward to the money he earned for it..maybe it could be used for acting lessons.Bad effects and all the extras were uninspired the whole way through.Brought nothing at all to the genre and is an easily forgettable pile of bad movie making.Originally gave it a 3 but after reading my own review just before submitting I changed it to a 2!

    I’m not dumb, I knew what to expect when I put this on. I wasn’t expecting some Tarantino esque film with tons of heart and interesting dialogue. I was ready for some mindless monster action along the lines of Underworld or Blade, unfortunately none of that was to be found. Instead “The Last Witch Hunter” plays out like a very shallow detective movie with a very unlikable detective. Vin Diesal just didn’t work in this, Vin isn’t in movies because of his acting chops, he is in movies because we love to watch him be a badass. In this though he is basically just walking around investigating clues while we are treated to some pretty lame CGI. There is very little action in the movie and the few action scenes that do take place are pretty underwhelming. “The Last Witch Hunter” should have been a mindless action movie, it really didn’t have the cast or the story to be what it really was trying to be. Pretty much all in all this was a very dulled down version of much better movies.3/10

    In the Middle Ages, the witch hunter Kaulder (Vin Diesel) hunts down the Witch Queen (Julie Engelbrecht) with the inhabitants of towns devastated by the black plague that she had spread.. The Witch Queen curses Kaulder with eternal life to make him suffer the loss of his wife and daughter for the eternity.Eight hundred years later, there is a balance in the world and the witches live peacefully among humans. The witch hunter Kauder and The Axe and Cross that judges and imprisons witches in the darkness are the responsible for keeping the world in peace. The priest Dolan 36th (Michael Caine) is the liaison between The Axe and Cross and Kauder, giving support and keeping the record of his life. On the same day of his retirement, Dolan 36th dies alone in his apartment. Kauder goes to his apartment with Dolan 37th (Elijah Wood) to investigate his death and finds black magic in the spot. Further, he finds that Dolan 36th is still alive under a powerful spell. Now Kauder visits the witch Chloe (Rose Leslie), who owns a witch bar, to seek her help to recall his own death following clues left by Dolan 36th. However the bar is attacked and destroyed by the witch Beliel (Ólafur Darri Ólafsson) and Kauder leaves Chloe under his protection. When she uses her abilities to help Kauder, he learns a dreadful secret about his immortality. “The Last Witch Hunter” is an entertaining fantasy with lots of action and special effects. The excellent cast with Michael Caine, Vin Diesel, Rose Leslie and Elijah Wood give pedigree to the adventure. The conclusion is prepared for a sequel with Kauder’s discovery. My vote is seven.Title (Brazil): “O Último Caçador de Bruxas” (“The Last Witch Hunter”)

    Vin Diesel has made himself a household name in Hollywood with his charismatic role in the Fast and Furious franchise as well as playing the titular character in the Riddick trilogy. In this fantasy action thriller directed by Bresk Eisner and produced by Mark Canton, Diesel plays Kaulder, a witch-hunter cursed with eternal life and devastated by the murder of his wife and daughter, who must stop a plague unleashed by the Witch Queen (played by Julie Engelbrecht) who he killed centuries ago, from destroying New York City as well as the whole world itself, with the help of a redheaded bartender Chloe (played by Rose Leslie) and his young accomplice (played by Elijah Wood). Combining this fantasy movie with Gothic horror elements, what director Breck Eisner brings to this movie is an compelling premise, but what about the rest of the movie? That is where this film takes a stab wound. When examining the picture from a narrative development standpoint, the flaws are easily recognized, and there is only little redeeming quality to distract from the spiritless fantasy- action fare this turns out to be.Aside from the interesting premise, this movie is unfortunately forgettable. In the opening scene, we are introduce to Vin Diesel with rather fake looking hair pieces, as a witch hunter trudging through a snowy canyon with his crew, what later comes is an intense fight against the witch queen filled with run-of-the-mill special effects, but also some exciting action. From there on, the movie descends from any sort of excitement and the plot ceases to make much sense. The entire first half is quite tedious and moves at a needlessly slow pace, to the point where it is difficult to pay much attention. Instead of treating us with exciting action sequences, it wastes its time on needless exposition and convoluted storytelling, and the characters are so uninteresting. Along with Vin Diesel’s character who is the only character to spark much charisma, the rest of characters are a bit bland, especially Elijah Wood’s character who is bit underused. Those who are able to sit through the seemingly long hour and a half get to experience an climatic fight scene at the end, the only redeeming quality of the film.The Last Witch Hunter is very bland and forgettable, a movie that had so much potential that sadly goes wasted by confused storytelling, slow pacing, and incomprehensible characters. It is quite disappointing, especially as it stars Vin Diesel who has really made himself a big action star.

    This film is seriously dull.Whenever a fantasy film or game is made with it’s own internal mythos it MUST be interesting because every character, plot, etc. is set in this mythos and it is where you immerse yourself for a few hours. The mythos of this film… is so bland and generic that you just do not care.Lately there have been a lot of similar films (Priest, Hanzel & Gretyl, Van Helsing, Hellboy, Underworld) that all share some similarities (one hero against an attempt of a villain to rise up and mess the world up). While this in itself can be dull if you see it in film after film these films I mentioned are NOT (in my opinion) dull because the mythos of the film is very interesting. It’s engrossing. You care. After watching you may imagine living in that world. Not here its just so not fleshed out, nothing is fully explained, it’s like they know their world is so generic that you’ll be filling in the massive mythos gaps as you go.The acting is generic, the storyline is meh, the one plot twist is introduced and concluded and forgotten in about 2 minutes if that, and… ya, sorry just skip. Even if you’re a Vin Diesel fan just don’t bother go watch Riddick again or something.2/10 – 1 just for Vin Diesel and another 1 because the visuals were pretty nice at times.

    The Last Witch Hunter (2015): Dir: Breck Eisner / Cast: Vin Diesel, Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie, Michael Caine, Julie Engelbrecht: Imbecilic science fiction action film that seems to suggest our defence against evil. Vin Diesel plays a cursed witch hunter who is ages in years and now hunts witches in modern day. Elijah Wood plays a young priest who aids Diesel and comes off as unfortunately laughable because he is hardly threatening. His portion of the film is also terribly predictable. Rose Leslie looks stunning in her black leather and flashing red hair but again, her scenes come off as laughable. She works in a bar, likely to intoxicate herself into figuring out how she went from Game of Thrones to this junk. She is a witch but feels outside the box because she is a creature of good yet viewed as a creature of evil because of reputation. Julie Engelbrecht has the good fortune of being under heavy makeup so that she can less associate herself with this junk. She plays a scary witch whom Diesel stabs a half dozen times and plays x’s and o’s with her body while she burns. Perhaps the worst aspect is how veteran actor Michael Caine got roped into this. He is friends with Diesel before being cursed into a sleep. That is pretty much his role for the remainder of the film. He might as well be asleep for all the good this tripe will do for his overall career. The special effects are okay but director Breck Eisner seems to let everything get away on him just like the swarm of insects that emerge towards the end. This pointless drivel is so pathetically lame that perhaps jamming a stake through it would do it good. Score: 2 / 10

    The Last Witch Hunter looks like a pointless mix of “Blade” (very cool), “Hellboy” (very very cool), “The Highlander” (classic), “Constantine” (very good), “The Priest” (worse), “Max Payne” (worst) and the other Gothic-, horror- and fantasy-like movies. The main problem is that the authors put some boring CGI in every scene for no reason. The second is the cast: it is hard to imagine Vin Diesel in the role of a 800-year old immortal hunter. To be honest: the start is hopeful (thanks to the “13th warrior”…). In the intense first scene he’s wearing some badass hair, beard and costume, but in the rest of the movie he is more looking like some Armani-model from a fashion show. He is talking, walking and acting like Dom Toretto. Which means his suffering is unbelievable too. Despite I think Vin is a likable actor and I’ve really liked him as Riddick. But this character just isn’t his type. The others – the young witch, the old witch, the young priest, the old priest – and the whole imaginary world are totally sketchy. Even if they’ve tried to copy a lot of computer games (for example The last of Us) the result is awful. Very colorful and nice-looking, but empty. And finally: the writers and the script. There is no need for words… The only good thing about the film is Michael Caine: he is funny and good as always. I have a question to the director (the guy who directed the impressive The crazies) Breck Eisner: Why did you do this and why?! You’re not Uwe Boll, so stop doing this! No offense. 😉

    “The Last Witch Hunter” casts spells that are far from inspired and mediocre at best. “Dungeons & Dragons” aficionado Vin Diesel toplines this ponderous, PG-13 rated pabulum as an 800-year old protagonist who struggles with the help of the Catholic Church to preserve a precarious peace between witches and mankind. Not only does Diesel appear incredibly miscast as an immortal “Highlander” type medieval warrior careening around contemporary New York City in a sports car, but also this witchy washy yarn doesn’t surpass superior witchcraft fantasies such as “Snow White and The Huntsman” (2012) and “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” (2013). The chief problem with this lavishly-produced, CGI-laden extravaganza is that it takes itself far too seriously. Apart from its dire shortage of humor, this dreary potboiler suffers from a dearth of quotable dialogue, banal adversaries, and second-rate supporting characters. Gifted thespians like Oscar-winner Michael Caine and Elijah Wood shrivel in lackluster roles as our hero’s sidekicks who are designated as ‘Dolans.’ “Sahara” director Breck Eisner and three scenarists, Cory Goodman of “Priest” along with Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless of “Dracula Untold,” have conjured up a synthetic storyline that generates neither charisma nor spectacle. Actually, they appear to have imitated the sensational Wesley Snipes’ vampire saga “Blade” right down to its rebirth of an ancient blood demon. Similarly, “The Last Witch Hunter” should have bristled with non-stop momentum, violently outlandish combat sequences, and a coherently contrived mythology. Instead, it degenerates into a dreary mumbo-jumbo melodrama. The most ambitious CGI scene pits our hero against a clumsy beast known as ‘the Sentinel,’ and he destroys behemoth with a sword as if he were a bullfighter straddling it. This unruly creature resembles a huge tiger that appears as it if were assembled from wicker and features a jet engine afterburner for its gullet. Our hero’s chief adversary is a hideous Witch Queen swarming with creepy crawlies who looks like she has spent too many centuries in a mud bath. Moreover, she boasts none of the imaginative flamboyance of Charlize Theron’s enchantress in “Snow White and the Huntsman.” “The Last Witch Hunter” unfolds during the chilly Middle Ages. A group of stalwart souls armed with swords trudge through snow-swept, mountainous terrain to storm an eerie cluster of haunted trees. A despicable looking dame known as the Witch Queen (Julie Engelbrecht of the TV mini-series “The Strain”) inhabits this stronghold raging with fire and brimstone. Predictably, she isn’t glad to see these bearded gate-crashers with their religious iconography. This homicidal hag with her hatred for mankind has already decimated humanity with a black plague and incurred our hero’s wrath. The Witch Queen’s pestilence exterminated our hero’s wife and daughter, and his happier times with them are recounted in several flashbacks. When Kaulder (Vin Diesel with dwarfish dreadlocks) and the Witch Queen tangle, our fearless witch hunter skewers her with his flaming sword and finishes her off. Ironically, Kaulder survives this trial by combat, but his survival becomes a tribulation. “I curse you,” howls the wounded witch. “You’ll never know peace. You will never die.”Afterward, “The Last Witch Hunter” shifts its setting from the 13th century to the 21st century. Our brawny, shaven-headed hero with neither dwarfish facial fuzz nor noggin fur prowls a passenger jet as it encounters foul weather. Actually, an ignorant young witch has smuggled a dangerous collection of runes aboard the aircraft, and she is to blame for the increment weather. Naturally, our erudite hero invokes his age-old wisdom and defuses these volatile artifacts. Nothing about this scene creates either suspense or excitement. As his own personal reward, Kaulder seduces a nubile stewardess before he sits down for the last time with his 36th Dolan (Michael Caine of “The Dark Knight”), a revered Catholic cleric who has spent the last 50 years chronicling our protagonist’s escapades for posterity. Incidentally, Dolans are members of a covert Axe and Cross society within the Catholic Church. Like Kaulder, they have devoted themselves to maintaining an uneasy truce between humans and witches. In “The Last Witch Hunter,” witches walk the earth with mankind, just as vampires did in “Blade,” but few people know about their phantasmagorical presence. Kaulder and the clerics act as intermediaries who work alongside the crafty Witch Counsel to keep these necromancers in line. Kaulder captures witches who illegally practice black magic, and the Witch Counsel entomb them in a maze of caves.The 36th Dolan is poised to retire, and the 37th Dolan (Elijah Wood of “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy) prepares to replace him. Although he saved the 37th Dolan from a coven of witches, Kaulder doesn’t immediately recognize this newcomer. Meantime, dramatic complications occur when the 36th Dolan appears to have been murdered under mysterious circumstances by a shape-shifting sorcerer. Kaulder discovers black magic at the scene of the crime and suspects that his ancient adversary, the Witch Queen, may have been playing possum all those years. Along the way, Kaulder recruits a ‘good’ witch Chloe (Rose Leslie from “Game of Thrones”) to help him sort out the mystery. Chloe’s claim to fame is her ability to cavort in dreams. Happily, she rescues Kaulder from one disastrous dream after another when the Witch Queen’s evil cronies attack him on several occasions. Our hero believes the solution to his quandary lies within his “Matrix” like dreams.Ultimately, “The Last Witch Hunter” is largely incomprehensible gobbledygook. Eisner and his scribes have enormous problems mapping out their complex witchcraft mythology. They sprinkle bread crumbs of information about these conjurers throughout the muddled melodramatics, but seldom does anything about them come across as palatable. Two surprises occur during these sluggish shenanigans, but neither are genuine revelations if you have paid attention to the formulaic plot. The villains don’t stand out from the background, and the Witch Queen is stuck in the mud from the start. Eisner orchestrates several big-budget action scenes, but these emerge as sloppy exercises. Altogether, “The Last Witch Hunter” qualifies as hex-rated rubbish.

    The Last Witch Hunter really left a lot to be desired. It’s a typical last of your kind story. Vin Diesel stars as that said last of his kind. Oh, and he’s immortal by the way. Something about killing the witch queen. I’m not really a big fan of Vin Diesel, but even to those who are I’d just avoid this. I mean Vin himself does what he can, but honestly the guy couldn’t act to save his life. Though he’s far from the worst of it.The biggest shocker was Elijah Wood. I mean, seriously? The guy doesn’t really give a convincing performance. I mean he’s had his fair share of bad movies (ex. North, All I Want, Spy Kids 3-D (etc.)), but his performance in the movie made it almost seem like he was desperate, knowing he could in no way save the movie, but felt he had to make a conscious effort to do so. The problem with his character being the bad guy is that the movie hints so many times he’s the bad guy and he at one point is even questioned and denies it. This wouldn’t be such a problem if they didn’t make it so painfully obvious he’s in cahoots with the Queen. Like I said, I love the Lord of the Rings movies as much as the next guy, but he’s had better movies.The rest of the cast doesn’t leave much of an impression, but we do have Michael Caine as the guy who was cursed. He’s bland, but what can you expect? As for the story it’s more confusing than interesting. Most of the logic seems to be set aside for glimpses of CGI effects which are only average at best and the editing during these scenes is too jumpy. Can’t seem to stay on one thing too long eh? And for a movie all about action there doesn’t seem to be very much of it. It seems like 70% of the movie is philosophy BS and 30% is actual action. So there you have it, a 106 minute winded philosophical mess. It probably would’ve been better off as a TV series or a short film, but as a movie it wears out it’s welcome far too quickly.

    Expecting one thing and getting another, is one of the main reasons people end up disliking what they see. If you expect horror going to see The Last Witch Hunter, you’re bound to be disappointed. It’s not a horror movie – I wouldn’t be seeing it if I thought it would be. This is another one of the sort of comics heroes of a new sort that Vin Diesel specializes at. Check almost all his roles, he’s always creating a super tough guy, which is a borderline superhero, and very often an actual superhero without the costume. That’s why he’s always looking for new franchises, cinematic franchises are the modern day equivalent of comics superheroes. They carry on from one episode to the next never ending, as long as there’s demand for the product. I love comics, especially sci-fi comics, and fantasy as I stated more than once is a variation of sci-fi. Now sci-fi comics aren’t real sci-fi,they use the sci-fi elements to create a setting for the heroes. Same is true with any other sort of comics, the only important thing is that you can always create a new sequel, a new episode.Considering all that, TLWH, is doing it’s job very nicely. It has plenty of action, good CGI (it’s not a surprise anymore, but it’s still worth mentioning). It does call for a lot of suspension of judgment, and the plot itself is not always very consistent, (i’d rate it higher if it was). The acting is all right, Vin does come out a bit wooden at moments, but as a rule he’s a much better actor than he’s given credit for – as long as he stays inside his comfort zone. The indestructible tough guy with a sensitive heart hidden inside. Bottom line, if you want an action fantasy comics, you’ll get it here. Don’t look for anything else, you won’t find it.

    I just finished watching The last Witch Hunter.In this movie Dominic, Frodo, Alfred, and the chick from Game of Thrones, form a team to defeat an evil witch. The combination should have been an interesting team-up movie of A-List actors, but through some dark magic it got turned into an Unexpected Journey (yes I know Elijah didn’t play a big role in it, but neither did he in this one) completely lacking anything remotely Fast or Furious.Vin Diesel has proved himself to be a quality actor, yet with this movie he also proves that anyone can follow in the footsteps of Nicholas Cage. There is honestly not much else to say. I wasted almost two hours of my life watching it and I refuse to waste another two hours writing about it.I give it 3/10 … only because it still isn’t as bad as Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.

    If Vin Diesel is planning to star in another franchise after the successes of The Fast and the Furious and Riddick, he has another think coming. There is a fair bit of action that makes use of Diesel’s physical presence but the movie is bogged down in expository dialogue and a story that is incomprehensible at times. It also doesn’t help when the majority of the film is set at night with quite a few of the action scenes being difficult to see.Kaulder (Vin Diesel) is an 800 year old warrior whose main goal in life is to rid the world of witches. Just before he succeeds in eliminating the Witch Queen (Julie Engelbrecht), she curses him with immortality. We next see him in present day where he is still fighting the evil forces, this time with a priest bestowed with the title of Dolan 36th (Michael Caine). Realising that he can’t continue forever unlike his immortal friend, Dolan 36th introduces Kaulder to another priest in Dolan 37th (Elijah Wood) who will take over the reigns as Kaulder’s sidekick. Joining them is a good witch named Chloe (Rose Leslie), otherwise known as a dream walker.Vin Diesel has a limited acting range but makes use of it in this type of role where he is the action hero although he’s not as convincing as he is in the Fast and the Furious series. That’s probably because the wisecracks are funnier and the character of Dominic Toretto is more fleshed out. Two time Oscar winner Michael Caine has a small role and is in a coma for most of the film. He once said of his Jaws 4: The Revenge role that the house that Jaws built was terrific so the role of Dolan 37th must have financed his holidays. Elijah Wood displays his dramatic abilities and is involved in a twist which is preposterous. The editing is fast and furious at times which makes it difficult to focus on what’s happening in the action sequences. They seem to be well-choreographed with the exemplary sound effects bringing the fight scenes to life. Most of the visual effects are of the CGI variety and make a solid contribution to the look of the film. No matter how successful or unsuccessful a film is with the technological side of things, if the story is inferior like it is in this film, the overall impact suffers. There is a lack of tension for this particular genre and if you can remember the majority of the film after seeing it, you’re doing much better than I am.The Last Witch Hunter is a forgettable movie that has better action sequences than plot lines and dialogue. Vin Diesel has shown in the past that he can carry a movie, just not this one. The box office reception suggests that he should stick to the Fast and the Furious franchise. http://mlaimlai2.wix.com/magical-movie-review

    Both my wife and I really enjoyed this movie. It is character and plot driven. It does not rely on excessive violence, cheesy sex scenes, or gratuitous skin to sell tickets.What you get is engaging performances from Diesel, Leslie, Wood, and Caine, a murder mystery, and a compelling fantasy action-drama. The effects and scenes are beautifully created and shot.As fans of the fantasy genre, we loved the sword and sorcery aspects of the movie, blended with mystery, spiritualism, teamwork, and high concept story telling.This is my first Vin Diesel movie. I liked the way he played the character of Kaulder as a man with complex and layered emotions. I expected bravado and machismo, but instead got a man of depth and quality.I cannot say enough good things about the scenes with the Witch Queen, both when she first curses Kaulder with immortality, and at the end during the climactic battle with Kaulder. I really appreciated that the movie villain was not completely evil, but rather had motives that makes it clear why she acts as she does.I am looking forward to seeing it again on BluRay!

    Say what you will about Vin Diesel, the guy has performed a variety of roles. From the famous furious action series, sci-fi, family comedy and even the lesser known crime drama, he’s a legitimate blockbuster draw. However, in his recent fantasy escapade, he’s bogged down by the same flaws from Constantine and even Van Helsing; far too much stylish fireworks and lacking any real focus on narrative.The Last Witch Hunter tells the story of Kaulder, an immortal who hunts witches for centuries. Straight from the first act, the movie tries to jam as many expositions as possible while panning through myriad of hidden exotic locations practically every five minutes. It feels like a rushed tour of New York and none of CGI view made lasting impression.This is a missed opportunity since the occult version of modern city is teeming with potential. Other movies, even comic books and video games have used this premise to captivate audience effectively. The screenplay could’ve showcased the mythology with calm pace and imaginative scenery, yet the movie abruptly shifts between uninspiring random clubs, which makes the entire environment seems generic.It doesn’t have to be Hellboy 2 level of sophistication, but the lore available feels terribly underutilized. Visual is mostly crafted with CG, and the action is mediocre with crude choreography. Underneath the cosmetic spells, the production value feels simply average, far too similar to Constantine from last decade.This rushed pace is also translated to the characters, which appear like random strangers meshed together and suddenly given strange development. This is not on Vin Diesel alone, the movie has good acting prowess with Elijah Wood and Michael Caine, among others, however the characters are nothing more than stereotypical eccentric magicians or familiar villain. At some points it even looks like some cop procedural series with awkward buddy gimmick.Lastly, Vin Diesel himself isn’t that convincing even though he’s groomed for superhero epic. In fact, he fared much better as Riddick, at least he had an identity as the stealthy assassin. While as Kaulder he’s just another grunting protagonist despite the presentable physique or the grand attire.The Last Witch Hunter is a fantasy foray filled with shallow parlor tricks and incompatible hero in Vin Diesel. It had potential to be spectacular, but the shoddy presentation only offers pedestrian exhibition.

    This modern revisit of the witch-legend is not actually a bad movie. I mean it won’t be the “film of the year” but, if you are looking for some nice special effects and a little bit of action, this film will help you pass a nice evening!I found it enjoyable and not too long, and moreover, Vin Diesel is good for this part. He always give his best in this kind of “badass” character (Riddick, Fast and Furious).If I had to point out something not good about this movie I would say that is too stereotyped, especially in the end, but, in the end, I think it’s worth spending 10$ to see it!

    This movie has garnered a lot of criticism, and to be honest, I’m a little surprised. The plot and CGI were good. The acting and casting was excellent. Some parts of the movie felt really similar to The Exorcist II (Boorman), and I appreciated the lucidity and metaphysics embedded in the plot. I felt like the scene changes and juxtaposing modern/mythical images did a good job of sliding the viewer into the otherworldliness of the script. Most of the criticism seemed to revolve around expectations of Vin Diesels performance. The Character is written tersely for a reason. Why do people expect someone to be Shakespeare, simply because they lived 800 years. That experience might make some people very quiet, and I found Vin Diesel’s interpretation believable and appropriate. He isn’t portrayed as a scholar or wizard: just a good man who happens to be cursed. Frankly, I don’t think most of these people would have been happy with a 20 min monologue by Alan Rickman. The movie was a good fantasy/action movie with some clever plot elements and creative representations of traditional magical elements.

    I didn’t expect much from this movie. In fact, the only reason why I went to watch it was because of Vin Diesel. It’s another one of those Hollywood cliché filled movies. Don’t expect much of a storyline other than bad things happened to my family, I became a witch hunter, defied death and killed witches. It’s just filled with moments you know exactly how they’re going to turn out if you’ve seen any other movie from Hollywood. The visual effects were good enough. And the actors played their role. The plot has so much potential. Something like knights of the round table dedicated to incarcerating witches for using black magic. It’s a nice idea but poorly executed since the idea is crushed half way into the movie. Go see it if you like 21st century shotgun + sword action and Vin Diesel. Otherwise stay way from it.

    Besides short segments taking place in the Middle Ages and another on a plane, this supernatural flick takes place in modern New York. We have Vin Diesel’s character, Kaulder, a man who lost his family due to witches, still alive after 800 years and still hunting them. One would think that Kaulder would be a stereotypical stoic, somber, asocial killing machine, but such is not quite the case. I was pleasantly surprised to find Vin Diesel more smiling and “human” than usual. In fact, on more than one occasion, his hero actually showed restraint and compassion, which was quite refreshing. After that Middle-Ages intro, I thought all the witches would be evil, despicable, one-dimensional creatures (which would have been boring) but then again, I was fooled as we actually delved more into the modern witch community.As far as story goes, despite the seemingly cliché setup, I’d say it was stronger than usual for that kind of supernatural-action film with a few good twists I didn’t see coming. The special effects were rather good and I especially liked how the magic was so nature-oriented (as it should be for witches). One of the neatest places was that bar with the subtle light magic. I also liked the design of the old witches and that bone sentinel. There was visual stuff there I hadn’t actually seen before or at least a dozen times over. Unfortunately, I found the action scenes somewhat weak in general. I know that close-in fighting is supposed to be messy and chaotic but the cuts here were sometimes so poorly done I had trouble knowing what was happening. Thankfully, it’s never as bad as in that first fight in the past, and it does get better as the film goes on. So don’t go in expecting to be thrilled too much by the quality of the action.Surrounding the more-emotional-than-usual Diesel, there’s actually a pretty decent cast including Michael Caine (always classy), Elijah Wood (amusing and solid) and Rose Leslie, that redhead wild woman from Game of Thrones. For me, she was the highlight acting-wise and elevated everything up a dramatic notch. As for the directing, besides the poor action and annoying flares, it was competent but not particularly memorable. The “dream” visions were nice, but then they usually are. I saw this at a preview screening and there wasn’t much crowd reaction, however it should be noted that the film kept my (very) jaded interest throughout. I didn’t have trouble with the pacing or story confusion as other reviewers did. I actually found the world of the Last Witch Hunter somewhat intriguing and enjoyable.Rating: 7 out of 10 (good)
