IMDB Synopsis: all that stands between humanity and the combined forces of the most horrifying witches in history.
“The Last Witch Hunter” is about as good as you expect it to be. The previews were selling a fast and furious style action, horror, fantasy hybrid with lots of CGI. Vin Diesel joins the scenery with his usual brooding and silent menacing. It is a flick that basically depends on sound and fury.
Was it a success you ask? I didn’t think it was too bad as far as these types of movies go. I feel like a broken record at this point but maybe more emphasis on story and less emphasis on costly CGI visual effects might of gotten me more interested. But this movie is not interested in subtle performances or an engaging screenplay. It exists to give its target audience a two hour thrill ride and at that it mostly succeeds.
