Awfully Good Movies: The Last Witch Hunter (Video)

The Last Witch Hunter (2015)
Director: Breck Eisner
Stars: Vin Diesel, Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie

Awfully Good Movies is back in the saddle for 2017, and Vin Diesel's back to the XXX franchise this weekend in RETURN OF XANDER CAGE, so we're celebrating with Vin's 2015 fantasy flick THE LAST WITCH HUNTER! With this movie, Vin Diesel tried taking the witch hunter character he plays in DUNGEONS & DRAGONS--yes, Vin Diesel plays DUNGEONS & DRAGONS--and basing a movie around him--yes, they made a $90 million movie based off someone's D&D character. And even though he co-starred alongside such geek icons like Rose Leslie from GAME OF THRONES, Elijah Wood from LORD OF THE RINGS, and a very sleepy Michael Caine, the movie failed to conjure up any money at the box office or love from the critics. Does it have any redeeming qualities? I'll tell you this much: Vin Diesel manages to kill a tree-spider creature JUST BY BARRELING THROUGH IT WITH HIS BODY. So yeah, this flick's got that going for it...which is nice.

Extra Tidbit: The screenplay for this movie was featured on the 2010 edition of The Blacklist, an annual list of the best scripts from Hollywood that haven't been made yet. Other scripts from The Blacklist that turned into underwhelming movies: LIONS FOR LAMBS, COP OUT, THE BEAVER, RED RIDING HOOD, PAN, PASSENGERS--you know, I'm starting to think these scripts were blacklisted for a reason.
