PRIEST, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller, is set in an alternate world — one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church.
When his niece is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on a quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece’s boyfriend, a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.

A Nutshell Review [Stefan S]
It’s not too hard to understand why Americanized films of Asian pop culture easily gets into a furore amongst fans, because the track record so far, with films such as Godzilla some time back…
However, what Priest has in its favour is an unusually good cast growling sparse hard boiled dialogue (all nicked from Eastwood), great production design that combines western and eastern comic book themes…
Digital Spy [Ben Rawson-Jones]
For a brief moment, there’s a feeling of absolute exaltation while watching the disappointing action flick Priest.
There’s a wealth of material to be mined from crises of faith and the idea of the church as supreme governor. But it quickly becomes apparent that subtext is too much to ask of a film that just wants cowboys and clergymen to fight vampires.
Pretty pictures, yes, but spiritually bankrupt…
Empire (Kim Newman):
“‘Better’ than Legion, in that it doesn’t run to unintentional laughs, it’s marginally less entertaining.”
