By Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)
If Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) can include centuries spanning narratives that leads to modern-day, then The Last Witch Hunter is an ideal way to introduce the concept. Vin Diesel plays Kaulder, a role-playing character turned into a cinematic one, out to destroy all witches. This ranger-class warrior hunts them down because he believes most of them are inherently evil. In the film, they were once led by a queen bent on destroying all of humanity. When she was defeated long ago, she cursed Kaulder to eternal life and he’s fated to roam the earth like a Wandering Jew.
