#JustaQuickiePlease: The Last Witch Hunter Review
Let's only hope the title is a definitive as to the future of this franchise. It is stale, poorly acted, predictable fare that is sorely lacking in any thrills and far less frightening than the actual money spent for ticket and concessions to watch this newest Vin Diesel vehicle crash and burn. Even when the so-called twists are revealed, they are met with only ho-hums and yawns. The action sequences are so badly filmed and abruptly edited that most of the elaborate effects are lost in translation. And does Caine owe some massive back taxes or something, as it seems he has been co-starring in too many features, of late, that are well below his caliber. Also, as unfortunate as it may be, poor Wood will not be able to appear in any film without me pining for happier days spent in the Shire. The only magic in this flick is how effectively it made my interest and any and all entertainment value disappear. 0 out of 5 Kernels: as far as Vin Diesel's acting prowess is concerned, better stick to lines that truly express his true range, like "I am Groot."
