It makes you wonder what these reviewers are seeing that we are not....I watched Priest last week and i would give the 3D a solid 3.5 out of 5.... No way it deserves a 1.5. Captain America got a 2.5 That was a great conversion.

I agree. Read about the conversion being no good but I fail to see much fault with it,if any.... loved it!

Am watching this one again, possibly for the 5th or so time. I obviously really enjoy this movie and the 3D is terribly underrated on this.

It's a good vampire flick and if you don't take it too seriously it is quite good.

I Wish I could say more but that really covers it.

It really wasn't. The 3d was tacked on and didn't add to the film. Sure if you are a 3D buff you may enjoy the option. But everyone else will walk away wondering why they paid the premium.

I agree, this is underrated for the 3D, as it's a medium to high medium conversion, though it does have near the end desert train scene, some more mild 3D that crops up, and a few unconverted 3D shots that are flat 2D probably due to time constraints. The 3D layering looks pretty good, and the movie is entertaining.

Paul Bettany (Priest married to Jennifer Connelly) also is the voice of Iron Man's computer in the new Avengers Age of Ultron movie from what I read. Not Ultron himself, played by James Spader.

The movie didn't do very well in US theaters and left theaters shortly due to the tough summer competition. Had the 3D been mild from start to finish, then I'd say it was tacked on but what is here is worth watching for fans of 3D layering. The ash falling from the sky in the shot where Karl Urban is standing in the night streets is in the strong 3D range.
This is noticeably better than Smurfs 3D, Green Lantern 3D, Clash of the Titans 3D, etc.

I've watched this movie many times. I really like the world, the different take on vamps and think the 3D is at least ok. Love those bikes too. Over all I think it is a very good movie, for my tastes.

My only complaint is I cant seem to get the movie to look great. From scene to scene it is either too dark or too bright. I've resigned that it is a product of the setting, wasteland would be supper bright and vamps love the dark. I wish they would have toned it down a bit though. Maybe my HD66/screen just doesn't have enough contrast to pull it off.

The bikes were cool, but underplayed. They could have had more action scenes with them.

The 3D in the first 3/4 is mostly medium to high medium 3D; very good. The final act disappoints with the 3D, but otherwise, there are even some strong 3D shots in Priest 3D, especially with the particle effects as Karl Urban stretches out his arms after his train attack on the town at night.

It was a neat take on vampires, being mostly blind monsters with fangs. The end called for a sequel, but it released in theaters during heavy summer competition.

I have always believed that Preist 3D is under rated. It's good to read some positive reaction to the movie. Paul Bellamy was badass as the preist. Love the cross tattoo on his face. The demons are visually captivating.

Problem is the movie is so short yet has so much to set up, build a big futuristic world and convey everything that has led to it being like this and loads of backstory. It's just too much for such a short movie.

I felt the pacing hit the key plot points well, since it was mainly a rescue mission to save the girl.

I would still love to see a sequel to this. The 3d for this movie was excellent and I thought the vampire creature design was very creepy and evocative. The movie also made me think too and I love the questions it raises. I thought the movie was intellectually and philosophicaly stimulating lol. One of my favorite lines from Karl Urban's character was something to do with sin and I forgot it now lol

I was hoping for a sequel, but the ticket sales said no.
The movie brings up the concern with the Church becoming the State, resulting in an inquisition to anyone who opposed. And the automation in the confession booth where a computerized simulation gives calculated responses to Paul Bettany as Priest. The Ruler played by Chris Plummer, reminds me of John Hurt's role of corrupted power in V for Vendetta.

Not sure what line it was. What part of the movie?

Slight Spoilers:
I still wish they showed the part where Karl Urban's character eliminates those martial art monks in the town at night. That would have been a cool action scene.

Also wish they revealed more of the Queen Vampire. In the show The Strain, the Master Vampire is shown more often as the series goes on, though a movie has less time to build up.

Finally jumping aboard the 3D edition: The price was right. I've seen it previously, once, in 2D...and thought it succeeded where many fantastical films fail...in being fresh; it's a unique genre mashup with great visual design (the western element is a pretty striking ingredient in the mix on this one). At any rate, it's fun yet unafraid to be somber, take on some thought provoking themes. Quite undeserving of the knee-jerk trashing it received from critics and audiences alike. Pity that sequels weren't in the cards...

Looking forward to checking out the 3D conversion.

I don't understand this thread. Some of the visuals and fantasy design were nice in 2D. The best part was the 2-minute animated intro at the beginning. It's one of the worst movies in my collection though and the worst 3D disc I ever bought. But now I know. Thankfully, studio conversions are no longer this flat.

I got this movie last year and expected almost nothing from it.

Movie ended up be surprisingly decent and the 3D was OK too.

Glad I got a copy of this one, later on almost any 3D movie could be hard to find.

Even now, random 3D movies are hitting $40+ on Amazon because supplies are drying up.

The moment is when he's on the train with the kidnapped niece in the desert. I'm still trying to remember the line, so I'll have to watch the film again soon lol

My personal worst is Piranha 3D; the film is a blast, but features very shoddy conversion work. Artifact laden, objects leave trails... Very distracting. I suspect they used a cheap, auto-fill process for the fill-in paint work.

Though underwhelming for you, did you find the conversion for Priest 3D clean, at least?

I know what you mean about Piranha. I cringed in my seat during Alice in Wonderland's fully live-action beginning and end sets. And further, Cave of Forgotten Dreams has some of the most horrendous conversion work ever in a major picture. I had to keep taking my glasses on and off when they switched back and forth between native and conversion.

Priest's 3D is watchable. It's not so much of an amateurish-converted eyesore as it is just flat and pointless. People used to talk about how dark lighting kills 3D depth. In Priest's case, they simply did not bother giving much shape to the darker sequences. I re-screened a few minutes of it a couple weeks ago to demo flat depth vs. round depth for someone, but it's been a couple years since I watched it all the way through. From memory, 95% of the cinematography is designed for 2D. There is one brief CGI 3D pop-out with some weapons, but it's not much to recommend.

Conversions like Priest give 3D a bad reputation, altering movies that were meant to be 2D for an extra studio money-grab. Most of the early ones (pre-Avengers and Titanic) have zero redeeming value, offering neither convincing depth nor 3D design. At best, Priest 3D is a secondary viewing option for fans of the movie. I'd rather put on a Golden Age title or something from a passionate 3D filmmaker to enjoy a real 3D experience.

Come on, the weapons and vehicles special feature has much better 3D than the entire movie!! I bought it for 5 on Amazon and still felt ripped off. It is mild 3D for 95% of the movie, with the train sequence at the very end making some use of 3D without ever being memorable. The story is boring, the acting sucks. One of the worst 3D movies (or just movies in general) in my collection for sure.

Well, I'm anticipating seeing where I fall on the spectrum of response to Priest 3D. For the sake of conversation, I'll take an almost pointlessly mild conversion over sloppy any day. With Piranha 3D's process, for example, the brain is drafted into a tiring effort to reconcile discrepancies on an impossible dimensional plane; it's rife with poor object selection issues, as when someone's head is brought to the fore while their hair stays behind. As long as Priest 3D is relatively free of that issue, I'll probably be fine with it. More on that soon...
