(2015) (Vin Diesel, Rose Leslie) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action/Horror: A warrior, cursed with immortality 800 years ago, is called upon to save modern-day Earth from a resurrected Witch Queen.
- In the 13th century, a warrior named Kaulder (VIN DIESEL) leads a group of other dedicated men into the lair of the Witch Queen (JULIE ENGELBRECHT), who has cursed all the lands with the Black Plague and wants to eradicate humanity. They fight valiantly, and Kaulder buries his sword into the lead creature. But in her death throes, the Witch Queen curses him to immortality.
Flash forward to the modern day, and we learn that Kaulder has been in the service of the Catholic Church for centuries, killing and imprisoning witches who are both female and male. He has been assigned a succession of handlers over the past eight centuries, and his current one, Dolan 36th (MICHAEL CAINE), has reached retirement age and is handing over his duties and responsibilities to young Dolan 37th (ELIJAH WOOD). But when Dolan 36th turns up dead, Kaulder surmises it is the work of witches.
Fortunately, he is able to recruit a good witch, the "dream-walking" Chloe, (ROSE LESLIE), to help him in his quest for revenge -- a quest that brings him into conflict with Belial (OLAFUR DARRI OLAFSSON), a male witch looking to obtain the Witch Queen's still-beating heart and resurrect her. At the same time, he continues to be tormented by memories of his long-dead wife and daughter who he was unable to save.
