Batman Begins 15th Anniversary

The Last Witch Hunter Reviewed

While the latest Vin Diesel film, The Last Witch Hunter, may seem like exactly what you would expect, it probably isn’t. Commonly known for his over the top action franchise, The Fast and the Furious series, you may think that Diesel is branching out into over the top fantasy action flicks with this film but unfortunately, everything about this film is simply lacking. Personally, I found the Fast and Furious to be an entertaining series filled with fun and adrenaline but also with a decent amount of good character development interspersed, as outrageous as those films are. the-last-witch-hunter

————————————Spoilers Ahead————————————-

Unfortunately, The Last Witch Hunter possesses none of the action packed charm or appeal of Diesel’s previous films. The entire plot is filled with pointless events, all of which feel disconnected and like the writers were making it up as they went along. The film starts with Vin Diesel’s character, Kaulder, a person of seemingly Viking or European Barbarian origin, along with several other comrades as they invade a witch lair, hoping to rid the world of the Witch Queen as she is apparently responsible for the Black Plague in her attempt to rid the world of humans. After defeating the Witch Queen, Kaulder is cursed by her with immortality hence the reason the rest of the film takes place in the modern day. Once at this point, the rest of the film takes place like the plot of a bad linear video game. Kaulder goes from cliche fantasy location to other cliche fantasy location slowly learning details about the dark witch’s plot to predictably resurrect the Witch Queen and to restart the Black Plague all over again. Without having to go into all the details, the ending of the film basically leaves Kaulder in the exact same place as the beginning. Zero things have changed for him. He is still left immortal, still charged with defeating witches, and still has Michael Caine as a mentor who is, unfortunately, horribly wasted as an actor. And what makes this whole ending ludicrous is how Kaulder makes the obtuse observation that something has changed in his life when literally nothing has. Now to clarify, all of this happens without a lick of decent action to even make up for the bad plot and acting.

In short, don’t waste your time.
