While I hardly hold “Priest” sacred, I’m not throwing holy water on it and casting it out, either. It’s fine, as long as you’re fine with soulless sci-fi thrillers about crucifix-tattooed warriors battling vampires.
In all of this utterly dispiriting, ill-written and spastically-directed tripe, there is one bright spot, and that is Paul Bettany as the title character. When you watch Bettany, you can’t help wondering why the hell a talented actor is stuck in such an ungodly mess.
The over-optimistic promise of a sequel will hopefully be one premise which remains dead and buried. For ever and ever. Amen.
