It feels as if I've seen this movie a thousand times before (or at least movies with this same premise).

First 'The Rite' now this. It appears films focusing on religous subject matter seem to have taken a liking to the Razzies.
You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

A spiritual successor to Legion, one of my Bottom 40 Films of 2010. I should've known this would be bad before New Year's. Last time I checked, the reviews were in the "Abysmal" range, 14%.

It's "Legion Part 2"! Ugh! Am I the only one who thinks Paul Bettany does not make for a believable action hero? Must be why they have Maggie "Queen Action Heroine" Q tagging along with him.

Michaels, No i also think Bettany shouldn't be in summer action-movies, i actually think he's a decent actor and it always feels to me like he's taking roles that are just below him.

This also seems to be the SECOND Razzie-worthy supporting of Cam Gigandet (first being The Roommate).

And last but not least, I just found out that this movie was based on a Korean Manga-series, directing us back to the discussion on the main forum about the impossibility of a good Manga/Anime-adaption in Hollywood.

Yeah, I think it's kind of important to know of the "based on a Korean manhwa" thing, with manhwa having the same meaning as manga.  

It may be more comparable to Speed Racer and DragginBall Devolution than films like Legion and The Rite.  Also, the Keanu Bebop movie fell into Development Hell a while back, though he is being considered for an Akira adaptation (will Rosie O'Donnell play the giant blob?).

Impossibility of a good manga/anime adaptation, indeed.

And that is where it will hopefully stay forever, so there will be at least one beloved anime series that won't be sh*t on by Hollywood!

This has got to be one of the most boring trailers I've seen in a long time! 

At least director Scott Charles Stewart didn't also write this like he did with LEGION.

If that stupid fat f-cking cow actually were cast, then the movie might at least be amusingly watchable...  LOL

And on another note, This movie looks like dog sh-t, and I hope it gets the attention from us that Legion never did.

Just saw it (don't ask me how... I shall not tell). Eventhough it was by no means a good film, it wasn't as unwatchable as the RT-rating led us to believe. It's more Waterworld-bad (as in a bad movie that is fun to watch) than Jonah Hex-bad (as in a nearly unwatchable movie). [SPOILERS] They did use a Jonah Hex-like animation/narration introduction sequence and a lot of the plot twists were already very obvious early on in the movie (like Priest being Lucy's father and the main bad guy being a priest turned vampire). It also is very funny that when they make a villain that is unbeatable, They just blow the train up on which he is standing. [END OF SPOILERS]

Right, I forgot to mention. This has has less to do with the original manga than Van Helsing (the movie) had to do with Bram Stoker's Dracula. I started reading it a couple of days ago (mainly because i wanted to know what the movie would be about) and the story/plot in the comics is far superior to that of the movie.

R.T.(20%): "It's admittedly sleek and stylish, but those qualities are wasted on a dull, derivative blend of sci-fi, action and horror cliches.

Chilean reviews:

"Another action bomb that wastes it's potential for trying too hard to develop a story when in fact all there is to do is give us pyrotechny and fun(**/*****)".

"The script never finds a necessary conection gets lost between shallow critics towards the catholic church,a rehash of genres and a coctail of cliche sentences that end up trivializing the movie's background(***/*******)".

I liked Legion and I'm planning to see Priest. I think it looks like it'll be good!
