Our Score
Cut from the same action fantasy material as the Blade, Highlander, and Underworld franchises, this entertaining supernatural romp finds witch hunter Vin Diesel - cursed with immortality in medieval times - trying to stop the rebirth in modern Manhattan of a Witch Queen determined to unleash a new strain of bubonic plague upon mankind. Stemming from the brawny superstar's love of the Dungeons and Dragons game, and offering an impressively textured universe considering it's not based on an established property, this family-friendly horror hokum always remains intriguing and imaginative even if the Good v Evil battles go on CGI overdrive. It's expertly cast from a talent pool with a host of mythological adventure credits between them, meaning they have that crucial self-awareness factor down pat. Diesel centres the magical mischief with his winning muscular charm, while priestly adviser Michael Caine adds a welcome touch of charismatic class.

Summary

In the modern day, he continues to battle evil, and faces his greatest challenge when the sorceress is resurrected to resume her evil plan.
