The Last Witch Hunter (2015)

Director: Breck Eisner

Stars: Vin Diesel, Rose Leslie, Elijah Wood, 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.

If you just watch this movie for what it is, then it is an enjoyable movie to watch. If you really sit and think about it, then you will hate the cheese factor to it. This is still a Vin Diesel, so you cannot expect too much from it.

This movie had some great special effects with the transforming of the witches and the powers that are throw all over the place. It looks really cool to watch. The real bad part of the movie was the acting. I do not mean all of it in the movie. I mean Vin Diesel. Oh, come on now. You know he acts almost the same in almost every single movie that he is in. He cannot act at all. That is why he is in the movies that he is in. They are movies that require no thought at all. Vin Diesel has the most monotone voice that he sounds more like a serial killer than an actor. The rest of the cast was decent. It was nothing to write home about.

If you are a fan of fantasy movie, then you will like this modern day look at witch hunting. The movie is filled with special effects and action. For the rest of you, the movie is worth watching once, but not more than that. Enjoy.
