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 an American supernatural action film directed by Breck Eisner. The film stars Vin Diesel as an immortal witch-hunter who must stop a plague from ravaging New York City.
MOVIE SPOILER ALERT. If you are planning to see the movie which is currently showing in local theaters, do not read the details below.
Kaulder (Vin Diesel) is a witch-hunter who was cursed with eternal life in the Middle Ages by the Witch Queen. The witch queen was planning to unleash a deadly plague to wipe out humanity but Kaulder was able to defeat her. Prior to seemingly dying the witch queen cursed him with eternal life as punishment.
800 years later, Kaulder is still working as a witch hunter for an organization which aims to keep the truce between humans and witches. Ever since he was made immortal by the witch queen, Kaulder is accompanied by a priest called a “Dolan” whose main purpose is to record the achievements of Kaulder and to be his keeper and friend.
At the beginning of the movie, Kaulder is shown to be close to the current but soon to be retiring 36th Dolan (Michael Caine), who is seeing him for the last time as his official Dolan. As a token of their friendship and as a retirement gift, Kaulder gave the 36th Dolan an engraved silver pen.
The 36th Dolan is then shown in his residence sealing up his journal as Kaulder’s Dolan and instructing the soon to be inducted 37th Dolan (Elijah Wood) on how to conduct himself on his first meeting with Kaulder. Unknown to both of them, they are being watched from the street below by a male witch.
That same night, Kaulder receives a message that the 36th Dolan has died in his sleep. He is then informed that the ceremony to induct the next Dolan will happen the next day. The next day, after the inducting ceremony, the 37th Dolan and Kaulder investigate the residence of the 36th Dolan, since Kaulder has a nagging feeling that his friend was killed. Lo and behold, they have found traces of magic in the room along with the broken furniture that signified the culprit was looking for something.
When the 36th Dolan is cursed by an unknown enemy, Kaulder must partner up with a female witch to break the curse, only to find something. Something that determines the future of humanity.
