Vin Diesel and his helium-soaked voice are sleepwalking through the main role just like the stand employee, who is in his mind at home with his family, but he just has to make it through the shift somehow. I do admire that it does not try to be over the top with camp. And the effects are alright, an entertaining movie to pass the time. What's wrong with some firearms? Originally gave it a 3 but after reading my own review just before submitting I changed it to a 2! He once said of his Jaws 4: The Revenge role that the house that Jaws built was terrific so the role of Dolan 37th must have financed his holidays. There is very little action in the movie and the few action scenes that do take place are pretty underwhelming. We next see him in present day where he is still fighting the evil forces, this time with a priest bestowed with the title of Dolan 36th Michael Caine. Does not even worth a download in my book.
It had potential to be spectacular, but the shoddy presentation only offers pedestrian exhibition. On the same day of his retirement, Dolan 36th dies alone in his apartment. Eight hundred years later, there is a balance in the world and the witches live peacefully among humans. At some points it even looks like some cop procedural series with awkward buddy gimmick. I cannot say enough good things about the scenes with the Witch Queen, both when she first curses Kaulder with immortality, and at the end during the climactic battle with Kaulder. The excellent cast with Michael Caine, Vin Diesel, Rose Leslie and Elijah Wood give pedigree to the adventure.
There is a lack of tension for this particular genre and if you can remember the majority of the film after seeing it, you're doing much better than I am. Underneath the cosmetic spells, the production value feels simply average, far too similar to Constantine from last decade. Bad effects and all the extras were uninspired the whole way through. Elijah Wood displays his dramatic abilities and is involved in a twist which is preposterous. Now Kauder visits the witch Chloe Rose Leslie , who owns a witch bar, to seek her help to recall his own death following clues left by Dolan 36th.
When she uses her abilities to help Kauder, he learns a dreadful secret about his immortality. This movie has garnered a lot of criticism, and to be honest, I'm a little surprised. Further, he finds that Dolan 36th is still alive under a powerful spell. I was ready for some mindless monster action along the lines of Underworld or Blade, unfortunately none of that was to be found. There is a couple of twists thrown in to atone for the absence of a proper culmination. Vin Diesel has shown in the past that he can carry a movie, just not this one.
The screenplay could've showcased the mythology with calm pace and imaginative scenery, yet the movie abruptly shifts between uninspiring random clubs, which makes the entire environment seems generic. I am looking forward to seeing it again on BluRay! The acting is good - Michael Caine and Rose Leslie are really great in their roles. Acting was only ever tepid and the sets were not good at all. To whoever choose the final casting, please retire with Vinnie as well. Clearly timed, in fact rushed, for the upcoming Halloween holiday no big revelation here , this horror-schlock is resembling a typical holiday souvenir stand: an assortment of cheap, popular items, all mixed up together without taste or general concept, but everyone that stops by will find something to one's liking. Both my wife and I really enjoyed this movie. From the famous furious action series, sci-fi, family comedy and even the lesser known crime drama, he's a legitimate blockbuster draw.
Don't look for anything else, you won't find it. Brought nothing at all to the genre and is an easily forgettable pile of bad movie making. Why do people expect someone to be Shakespeare, simply because they lived 800 years. The visual effects and the feeling of being plunged into a dark world matches Constantine. Vin Diesal just didn't work in this, Vin isn't in movies because of his acting chops, he is in movies because we love to watch him be a badass. This is my first Vin Diesel movie. Expecting one thing and getting another, is one of the main reasons people end up disliking what they see.
While as Kaulder he's just another grunting protagonist despite the presentable physique or the grand attire. Vin Diesel has a limited acting range but makes use of it in this type of role where he is the action hero although he's not as convincing as he is in the Fast and the Furious series. Until a mysterious figure appears that may have a connection to his past. There may be some art in all that but it is as nonsensical as all the complicated rules the film throws at the viewer in many boring expository scenes - which then itself forgets to follow the script must have come directly from some goth kid's diary. Just before he succeeds in eliminating the Witch Queen Julie Engelbrecht , she curses him with immortality. I found it enjoyable and not too long, and moreover, Vin Diesel is good for this part.

This is another one of the sort of comics heroes of a new sort that Vin Diesel specializes at. He isn't portrayed as a scholar or wizard: just a good man who happens to be cursed. That's why he's always looking for new franchises, cinematic franchises are the modern day equivalent of comics superheroes. That experience might make some people very quiet, and I found Vin Diesel's interpretation believable and appropriate. The box office reception suggests that he should stick to the Fast and the Furious franchise. It does call for a lot of suspension of judgment, and the plot itself is not always very consistent, i'd rate it higher if it was. Vin Diesel does give quite a sophisticated performance, at no point I fell he never tries to over do it.
Frankly, I don't think most of these people would have been happy with a 20 min monologue by Alan Rickman. This is a missed opportunity since the occult version of modern city is teeming with potential. It's up to him to uncover the secret before a disaster may come afoot? The Last Witch Hunter is a fantasy foray filled with shallow parlor tricks and incompatible hero in Vin Diesel. It doesn't have to be Hellboy 2 level of sophistication, but the lore available feels terribly underutilized. The effects and scenes are beautifully created and shot.
