The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including Kaulder, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the Queen curses Kaulder with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today Kaulder is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to Kaulder, the Queen Witch is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race. Written by
Vin Diesel had been a Dungeons and Dragons player for many years (he taught Dame Judi Dench to play on the set of The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)). The main character in this movie was partly based on his old Dungeons and Dragons character (Melkor) who was a Witch Hunter. He used one of the third party Dungeons and Dragons books to create the character class, as he loved being a Ranger type, but also like to use a few spells too. See more »
Spoilers - Incorrectly regarded as goofs: When Dolan 37th calls Kaulder to say that "Dolan the 36th passed away peacefully last night" and "The ceremony will be tomorrow" is clearly the day after Kaulder, and later, Dolan 37th, visited with Dolan 36th, the night he dies. Now he can only be referring to the funeral ceremony in this call. The question then seems to be, what is the ceremony we cut to immediately after the call? This is the ceremony installing Dolan 37th as the next Dolan, even though we see there is also a closed casket there. The only things we see and hear going on at this ceremony are directly related to Dolan 37th testifying that he is worthy of the job, promising to always help Kaulder, and ending with him being branded on his arm. After that he goes outside and joins Kaulder who seems to have left before this ceremony was completed. Since we neither see nor hear anything having to do with a "funeral" ceremony we can assume that it will still take place tomorrow, as Dolan 37th said to Kaulder, and the body is simply lying in repose until then. Therefore, when they leave and go to Dolan 36th's apartment and Kaulder's statement to Dolan 37th "You were here last night, before he died, right?" is phrased correctly. See more »

I didn't expect much from this movie. In fact, the only reason why I went to watch it was because of Vin Diesel.
It's another one of those Hollywood cliché filled movies. Don't expect much of a storyline other than bad things happened to my family, I became a witch hunter, defied death and killed witches. It's just filled with moments you know exactly how they're going to turn out if you've seen any other movie from Hollywood.
The visual effects were good enough. And the actors played their role. The plot has so much potential. Something like knights of the round table dedicated to incarcerating witches for using black magic. It's a nice idea but poorly executed since the idea is crushed half way into the movie.
Go see it if you like 21st century shotgun + sword action and Vin Diesel. Otherwise stay way from it.
