The Last Witch Hunter
Hundreds of years ago, Kaulder (Vin Diesel) was cursed with immortal life by an evil witch queen bent on destroying humans with a deadly plague. With his gift of immortality and knowledge of witches, Kaulder spends his time as the Witch Hunter, bringing to justice or killing any witches who get out of line. But when a new evil force arises, he finds he must trust someone unexpected to keep an old threat from returning to destroy the world.
ClearPlay In Action!
There are only about 10 instances of language to clear up here, and besides some immodest clothing, not a lot in the sexuality department, either. Most of the PG-13 budget is for violence. While there isn’t a lot of blood, there are disturbing images, impalings, slashings, and so on that will break up the action scenes if the filters are on full. This is a movie for teens and up.
Should I be First in Line to See the Last Witch Hunter?...
The Last Witch Hunter really doesn’t distinguish itself from other urban fantasy offerings out there. It has two major plot twists. One is pretty cool. The other was so ham-handed that it made me want to punch somebody in the face. There are some great visuals and even a plucky co-star that’s more interesting than the main character, but I couldn’t help the feeling that Vin Diesel didn’t do the movie any favors. He just kind of acts like Vin Diesel when the part needed a bit more nuance than his Fast and Furious persona requires. It’s also a bit painful to see the venerable Michael Caine collecting a paycheck. If you enjoyed the I, Frankenstein movie, this is about on par with that film.
