The post-apocalyptic future, what could be more fun? Well, puppies, stick ball, and watching Donald Trump eat a bug, amongst other things. Nevertheless, the producers of Priest are hoping you're jazzed to see a ravaged world in which the war between humanity and blind, sluglike creatures called vampires has reached a stalemate, and Paul Bettany's taciturn, neck-biter-hunting priest threatens to disrupt the peace by chasing after his kidnapped niece. Is a movie that blends Blade Runner with The Searchers and throws in a despicable Karl Urban -- far, far from the U.S.S. Enterprise -- and a toothsome Maggie Q for good measure ready to take its place in the pantheon of top notch action films, or is it just Jonah Hex tricked out with concrete bunkers and nitro-enhanced motorcycles? Join Cinefantastique Online's Steve Biodrowski, Lawrence French, and Dan Persons as they discuss the merits and demerits.
