Normally I try not to look at other rating sites before reviewing a movie but this time I happened to see it. At the time of this writing, Rotten Tomatoes had given The Last Witch Hunter a scathing 14% – holy crap people hated this film! I didn’t. Maybe it’s because I crush on Vin Diesel so hard (and I really do). Maybe it’s because I just watched Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (Rotten Tomatoes gave it 13%) and have my expectations have been set extra, extra low. Maybe it’s because this movie is exactly in my wheelhouse, genre-wise. I don’t know. Whatever the reason happened to be, I loved this film.
From Lionsgate and director Breck Eisner (The Crazies) comes The Last Witch Hunter, starring Vin Diesel, Rose Leslie, Elijah Wood and Michael Caine. The film hits theaters October 23rd.
