One of the big blockbusters being released this year in time for the Halloween holidays is Breck Eisner’s The Last Witch Hunter, Staring Vin Diesel, Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie and the glorious Michael Caine.
The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including KAULDER, 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 KAULDER, the QUEEN WITCH is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.
Now as far as I’m concerned, this looks really cheesy…And not in the good way. Sometimes these mixed-genre action movies do pretty well, like Underworld or the original Resident Evil, but other times they fail miserably, as was the case for I, Frankenstein or The Brothers Grimm.
