Priest

Priest (2011) is a vampire movie starring Paul Bettany. The vampires in this one aren't your typical vampire of either the sinister black cape or romantic sparkly variety. We got a kick out of it, even though, honestly, there's not much to it.

Moria says,
Priest is certainly an improvement over the frequently absurd Legion but [director] Scott Stewart has yet to learn the art of investing his films with anything other than poses he has borrowed from other action and horror films.
Slant Magazine opens with this:
In the way it unimaginatively regurgitates familiar genre elements in service of preachy piousness, director Scott Charles Stewart's cinema is the equivalent of Christian rock.
It gets a 17% rating at Rotten Tomatoes.

    I think 17% is a bit high...
