Plot summary: Priest is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between humans and vampires. Based on Priest, a Korean comic series created by Hyung Min-woo, the story revolves around a legendary warrior Priest from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity along with the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. The Priest (Paul Bettany) breaks his sacred vows when his niece is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires and ventures out on a quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. On his crusade he is joined by his niece’s boyfriend, a trigger-happy young sheriff from the wasteland, and a former Warrior Priestess who has amazing fighting skills.
So it’s basically everything recent movies are all moving towards, all rolled into one… vampires, post-apocalypse wastelands, steam-punk style industrial tech, better than a human can do fighting scenes, church/anti-church theme, and the obviously needed hot chick in tight black leather.
