Storyline Heading
After centuries of brutal warfare, humankind has defeated its most terrifying enemy, the vampire hordes. The few remaining vampires have been relegated to isolated reservations, while most humans have taken refuge in walled cities ruled by the Church. The priests, trained to be deadly combatants during the vampire wars, now do menial labor and live in virtual isolation, marked by distinctive tattoos and shunned by their neighbors.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Horror Thriller - This is an effects-heavy action film with horror and fantasy elements aimed at the young adult male action crowd. While the film is rated PG-13, it is much too violent and intense for children. Fans of stars Paul Bettany, Maggie Q, and Cam Gigandet should be pleased but Karl Urban fans may be disappointed by his limited screen time.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 14 moviegoers:
Unfortunately, we always have a hard time collecting very many reviews for this type of movie. Even though there aren't but a few reviews, they are mostly very positive. The target audience of teen males don't provide many reviews but the three that did review "Priest" rated it very high. The reviews from older moviegoers are also high and indicate a movie they enjoyed very much.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
When a report of a vampire attack and the abduction of an 18-year-old girl living in a remote outpost reaches Priest (Paul Bettany), a veteran of the wars, he asks the ruling monsignors for permission to go after the hostage, his niece. When they refuse, he breaks his sacred vows and defies their orders, setting out to find the girl before the vampires can enslave her. He is joined on his crusade by his niece's boyfriend Hicks (Cam Gigandet), a trigger-fingered young wasteland lawman, and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.

But when they reach the desert town of Jericho, Priest, Hicks and Priestess discover a scene of utter devastation that bears the hallmarks of a vampire rampage—and a terrifying new threat.
