Storyline

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 Lionsgate

Trivia

Plans to film "The Last Witch Hunter" were announced in 2012 and initially Timur Bekmambetov was to direct the film based on a script written by Cory Goodman. Bekmambetov was later replaced by Breck Eisner and Goodman's script was re-written by Dante Harper before Melisa Wallack was brought on work on the film's script. See more »

Goofs

Add the beginning of the film Kaulder (Vin Diesel) uses a staple and a glass of water to create a makeshift compass. While it's up for debate that he uses magic to magnetize the metal, it's worth remembering that staples are made of zinc covered in steel, one not magnetic and the other not easily magnetizable, depending on the variety.

Quotes

[first lines]
Belial: I swear to you, every single mother and daughter, father and son taken from us by the Black Plague will be avenged. It is their Witch Queen who brought this curse upon our lands. And in her death lies our salvation. Be warned, brothers. She will never truly perish until her heart beats its last. Let fear be dead to us. There is no going back, for there is nothing to go back to.

Alternate Versions

The UK version theatrical release is cut in order to secure a 12A rating. During post-production, the distributor was informed by the BBFC that the film was likely to be passed 15 but that their preferred (and more profitable) 12A could be achieved by making a number of reductions to moments of violence and horror. When the film was submitted for formal classification, acceptable reductions had been made and the film was classified 12A. The subsequent video release is uncut with a 15 classification.

Watch-able?
22 October 2015 | by ollaroncoolSee all my reviews

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.
