The Last Witch Hunter (2015) Review:

The Last Witch Hunter is Hollywood latest horror-themed big-budget action movie (90 million!). With its huge cast – Vin Diesel, Elijah Woods, Rose Leslie, and Michael Caine – I was really expecting something great, but I couldn’t have been more disappointed.

The movie is to witches what Blade is to vampires or Constantine to demons, an insipid attempt to turns a horror genre into a muscle, action-packed movie. The three movies actually share a lot of similarities: action-oriented, dark-themed, big casting, but also a very uninspired scenario (maybe less true for Constantine). The story seemed similar to every single action/horror movies: an old evil is about to be waked up and Vin Diesel has to stop it and save the world.

This said, the fantasy world built for the movie, one where witches are allowed to live among humankind as long as they do not use their powers in harmful ways, is the best thing about this movie. The mythology part is well-developed and the visuals are good – with some really convincing, dark looking, CGI.

But the story is really too weak to be overlooked. Despite the presence of some of Hollywood best actors (I am not speaking of Vin Diesel here), the movie totally fails at keeping the viewer interested (I spotted many people sleeping in the cinema). Thereee is a huge lack of any kind of suspense. The movie is 100 minutes but feels like an eternity. The fight scenes, a little too bland, couldn’t save the movie.

In conclusion, I was really willing to love that movie, but it ended up being one of this year biggest disappointment for me.
