Movie Story: The Last Witch Hunter is so dense, so packed with stuff — with spells and strange beings and dreams and weapons and ornate walls and tree roots tangled with skulls and giant swirling apocalyptic black clouds of man-eating flies — that you might not notice at first that there aren’t any people in it. Vin Diesel plays Kaulder, a beefy, bearded warrior we first meet sometime in the Middle Ages, as he kills the ghastly Witch Queen (Julie Engelbrecht). Witches, you see, are real, and they were responsible for the Black Death, and Kaulder and others have been hunting them for some time in an effort to avenge their loved ones. Right before she turns into a pillar of ash, the Witch Queen puts the curse of immortality on our hero. “I curse you with life! To never know peace! To walk the earth for all eternity!” So he was maybe an average Joe witch hunter once, but now he’s an immortal.
