Priest opens with a neat animated segment that gives an overview of the world the movie is set in. A war between humans and vampires has been raging for thousands of years, with humans being hunted almost to extinction. Humanity's last gasp for salvation is the Church, which has turned the tide of the war by unleashing their secret weapon against the vampires: the Priests. The Priests are born warriors, trained to perfection to kill vampires and fanatically loyal to the Church, and thanks to them humans finally defeat the vampires and lock up the survivors in a series of reservation camps. The humans that survived the war have taken shelter in massive walled cities in a society which is completely dominated by the all-powerful Church. With the war over, the Priests have outlived their usefulness and have been disbanded.

|"Edward Cullen? Never heard of him, bro."|
|Phil Collins is gonna be pissed you're messing with his daughter, pal.|
|Damn that vow of celibacy!|
Best line: "You've got your gun armed? You're gonna need it." BOOM. Vampires.
TL;DR - Nice vampire killing action by Paul Bettany can't make up for a weak story - 6/10
