THE LAST WITCH HUNTER [2015]

Director Breck Eisner and the guys who wrote Priest & Dracula Untold (feck, I should've seen those warning signs glaring in my face) grace us with the silliness that is The Last Witch Hunter.
Vin Diesel is an immortal medieval witch-hunter in modern day New York who's out to...well...hunt witches.  It's the type of film that brings all sorts of potentially great conflicts to the table but doesn't seem to recognize them resulting in immense frustration for anyone with half a brain.  It's even more frustrating when they do recognize the conflicts but do nothing to flesh them out making the danger as suspenseful as American Pie.  It's fun to see Vin Diesel wield a sword but beyond that there's absolutely no feeling of magic in this film about magic.
