Five Facts About Solomon Kane
RT goes straight to the star for the lowdown on his puritan hero.
Bleak, brutal and bloody as hell, angsty throwback hack-'em-up Solomon Kane kicks a raging new life into the swords-and-scorcery genre -- largely thanks to a tremendous performance from James Purefoy. Created by Conan The Barbarian author Robert E Howard, Kane is a battle-hardened Puritan anti-hero who wanders the 17th-century world looking for evil to vanquish. He used to have God on his side. Now he's got a big sword and a bad attitude. The Brit star of Rome tears into the role (not to mention to the men and monsters he faces), announcing himself as a fearsomely charismatic leading man and making you wonder just what might have happened if they'd cast him as Bond... He tells RT what to expect from the film.
