The story goes like this: The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including Kaulder, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful queen witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the queen curses Kaulder with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today Kaulder is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to Kaulder, the queen witch is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.

The Last Witch Hunter is of action, adventure, and fantasy genre, which runs for approximately 106 minutes. It's rated PG-13 in most countries for sequences of fantasy violence and frightening images. The Last Witch Hunter would probably appeal to those who like fantasy movies as it deals mainly with magic and witchcraft. While some scenes were frightening (thanks to CGI), majority of the scenes were either dragging or confusing, especially with all the flashbacks. I don't think that Vin Diesel is also fit for the role. Overall, it was an okay movie without anything extraordinary.

RATING: 3 out of 5 STARS
