Who will win in a battle between the undead and the clergy?

Priest review

Paul Bettany kicks ass for the Lord in this post-apocalyptic vampire movie, a dry ‘n’ dusty mash-up of cowboys, bloodsuckers and Mad Max-style wastelands.

He’s the cassock-clad martial artist of the title, a veteran of mankind’s fight against CG undead battling to rescue his niece.

Re-teaming with Legion director Scott Charles Stewart, Bettany bears his cross with gruff efficiency.

But informative extras can’t explain how a cool concept became as anaemic as the movie’s sunlight-starved ghouls.
