Riddick In The Light... 'ish...

So way back when witches roamed the land so did Witch Hunters. Kaulder (Diesel) and his gang are hinting the Witch Queen who is intent on the destruction of the human race. The battle between Queen and mortals is fast and furious with everyone but Kaulder and the Queen being slain. In a last ditched attempt, Kaulder attacks and runs her through with his sword of fire. However, as witches are accustomed, she doesn't die easily... she curses Kaulder to immortality. However, judging by the notches on his bedpost this curse has backfired on the witch because it looks like he's enjoying life... not only does he have the women, but he has his own toys, fast cars, and a penthouse... when can I get cursed that bad(?)

So this is pretty much a Vin Diesel vehicle and to be honest, it's kinda like Riddick without the contact lenses. There's at least an air of a mystery in the story, something is happening in the magic community and it's not good. What's happening? Who's behind it? What's the twist? All good questions, though all, are pretty easy to figure out. Mainly, because it's all been done before and maybe they didn't want to get too complicated and confusing as the film is aimed at a 12A audience. Any adult should know where this story is going and all the twist reveals well in advance of their actual reveal.

Vin Diesel once again does a great job at being Vin Diesel... I would love to see him stretch his acting wings to take in a few more characterisations... or is he gonna be like Bruce Willis stuck in a rut being John McClane in every film he does? Can anybody remember when he was Hudson Hawk... But I digress, then you have Rose Leslie as Chloe... she's a strange one as sometimes she's great, then at others, a lump of wood. Similar can also be said for Elijah Wood as Dolan 37th (shouldn't that be The 37th Dolan or Dolan 37?). Most of the time he's on screen he gives out an appearance of uncaring. It's like he didn't want to be there. Other than Diesel, the only other actors who do well with their characters are Olafsson as Belial, brilliant as the hulk of a warlock, who is certain of his power and his mission. Michael Caine as Dolan 36th, a cheeky priest who has befriended Kaulder over his tenure.

However, it's the direction, the special effects, and action scenes that will keep the audience entertained the most. Eisner is a good director and uses both camera shots, angles, pans, and lighting to his best advantage. It's also nice that he decided to keep the dark subterranean scenes well lit so you can see the action. It's also refreshing that in the action scenes he doesn't always opt for shaky cam. But, uses quick pans and cuts to add speed, tension, and excitement... phew, no seasickness pills needed.

If the story had been stronger and some of the characters slightly upgraded it would have made this a much better venture. As it is, it's a leave your brain by the door, magical slobber knocker. Not too bad a way to waste an hour and a half... though if you're looking for original, this isn't it... or thought-provoking.

I would recommend this to all viewers who want a not-all-together mindless entertainment. It's a one watch movie.

Highlander and Harry Potter had a kid... Ugly, but a kid.

This movie is exposition, the movie. Most of it keeps explaining things to you. Fortunately is not Jupiter Ascending, so you actually find the mumbo Jumbo adequate.

The plot is fantastic... and it is actually engaging. Some actions are performed because... why not? and it is full of deus ex machinas, but it is actually entertaining and keeps you guessing.

The cinematography and Photography are meh, specially at the ending, because the movie goes too dark, you can't see anything, not even a sword in flames.

The effects are pretty good, with the exception of the plague and the witch... pretty important elements in this movie.

The characters are good. You like almost all of them and hate the ones you must hate but because they actually compel you to react that way at them.

In general: an enjoyable film, but not enough to watch again.

Reasonabble popcorn movie

Vin Diesel plays an 800 year old witch hunter fighting evil in modern day New York, in particular a queen witch who cursed him with immortality centuries ago. Some big names amongst the cast, including Michael Caine, who looks somewhat out of place, and Elijah Wood. Story wise it is pretty flimsy but this is a special effects heavy movie, and they're are quite good, even though I am not a big lover of CGI. So if you like dark fantasy but don't want to tax your brain then this delivers, all be it visually.
