However, episodes in the middle ages with hairy and bearded VIN Diesel in The Last Witch Hunter is actually little, the majority of the time the story takes place in modern new York, where the headquarters of the order of the cross and the Axe, a weapon and an immortal witch hunter Calder.
Calder is a James bond fantasy world. He lives in a posh penthouse overlooking Central Park, likes to spend time with a beautiful stewardess, prefer fast expensive cars, keeps a stock of weapons in a secret room, and when occasion wears a formal suit. Why not 007? It seems that this is exactly the effect sought by the authors of The Last Witch Hunter, after all, on the idea of the film should be the first in a series of adventures of Calder.
Urban fantasy and contemporary dark folklore – a fertile environment for filmmakers. But, unfortunately, still never managed to really develop that niche, despite the large number close to the subject series. Do not get it and the creators of The Last Witch Hunter. Witches, owning a flower shop, a pastry shop serving cakes with secret ingredients, and the bar for mages is not enough to create a whole picture of the world in which witches live alongside humans. And sorry, the space for imagination and jokes are endless here, ideally one would expect a fantasy version of “Men in black”. Alas, “the Last hunter…” deadly serious, and the film promotion.
