The Last Witch Hunter

The Last Witch Hunter

Vin Diesel is a witch-killer in this supernatural adventure set in modern day New York. From the director of The Crazies (remake), co-starring Elijah Wood, Michael Caine and Game of Thrones’ Rose Leslie.

Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including Kaulder (Diesel), 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 him, the Queen Witch is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.

If ‘Vin Diesel fights witches’ doesn’t have you running to the cinema, you can probably safely avoid The Last Witch Hunter, a movie that sadly fails to transcend that goofy premise. It’s the kind of film you assume must be based on a comic book, but isn’t.

Although he did not have a major part,I was happy with Elijah Woods performance a far cry from Frodo. I think the setting and mood set the tone for the storyline which kept me fairly interested and wary of some of the plots(don't do this at home) as it dragged its way towards the finish line. I spotted Rena Owen the New Zealand actress in there.

I really enjoyed this film, it was a bit disjointed but overall the special effects were great and the storyline was good.I would give it a 7 out of 10.

There are certainly enough dopey diversions here for The Last Witch Hunter to be considerably more fun than it is...

A relentlessly unengaging affair, its derivative and logic-deficient script matched by flat direction and fussy, unconvincing CGI.

As Kaulder, Diesel does what he does, rumbling out lines of silly dialogue in his subwoofer of a voice. As far as acting goes, there’s not much.

Most will find this a rather too brassy affair, handicapped by incontinent plotting.

It's hokey as hell, but The Crazies director Breck Eisner plays it like a video game and keeps the teen fan-boy market onside...

A solid entertainment put together with confidence and a few decent jokes.

One of those artlessly restless, exposition-dialogue fantasy-action slogs.

Clogged with cardboard characters, flat dialogue and a sluggish middle act that gets lost in too much fabricated witchy folklore.
