The Last Witch Hunter looks like a load of childish nonsense as Fast And Furious‘ Vin Diesel pitches up as Kaulder, the last remaining witch hunter, who battles against an uprising of witches in modern day New York… as you do.
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 (Vin Diesel), a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful Witch Queen (Julie Engelbrecht), 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 him, the Queen Witch is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.
Also Rose Leslie, Elijah Wood, Joseph Gilgun from Pride, and Michael Caine (why?), this looks utterly dreadful.
The Last Witch Hunter has been brought forward from November 6th to a UK release date of October 23rd.
