Movie Mania: The Last Witch Hunter

Hello folks!
Today is movie review time. This time I want to ramble a bit of the Vin Diesel flick The Last Witch Hunter. So let’s get started!

 

The Plot:
This dark fantasy action film chronicles the endeavors of an immortal with hunter, Kaulder, who has to stop a plague from wiping out New York City…

 

The Rating:
Oh boy, where do I begin. There are so many things wrong with this movie…
First of all, the cast choices. I don’t know who decided that Vin Diesel would be perfect for this role, but it was just about the worst decision ever. For this lead role you might want to choose somebody with a bit of charm and fun. Diesel’s somber look and complete lack of emotions certainly don’t improve this film.
Moreover, this movie feels like a video game adaptation. Or better said, it’s a bit like all the sequences in between playing a game stitched together. It’s not intriguing, there’s nothing that pulls you in. Something is definitely lacking. I guess, it’s a bit like watching somebody else play the game – it gets boring after a while.
Apart from a weird story, that to a large extend doesn’t make any sense, the CGI effects are way overboard. No idea who was in charge there, but that person went haywire. This only adds even more to the video game feel that doesn’t do the film any good.

Summing up, there was absolutely nothing even remotely interesting about The Last Witch Hunter. Skip this terrible piece of film!

  1. My review on this says:

    The Last Witch Hunter definitely thinks it wants to have THEMES – like prejudice, mortality, superficiality… hell there’s even a bit of an environmental theme. Unfortunately none of these themes are developed in any way probably because Diesel’s acting style is very much that of the “Joey Tribianni smell the fart” variety, the script is laughable, the mythology is all over the shop and it isn’t even visually attractive enough to distract you from any of its shortcomings. So rather than being a fun, fantasy adventure romp it’s a plodding old mess
