Nothing special...:(

A modern 21st centuary swashbuckler: Our hero hacks and slashes his way through the enemy, even when sorely outnumbered, and survives whilst pursuing a damsel-in-distress and an evil tyrant. Being the 21st C, this is all done in a brutally graphic style: heavy rain, mud, blood and guts. Throw in a few extra nasties: zombies, witches and other monsters. The result is a romp that does not tax the intellect to hard. On the whole not too bad, if you like this sort of stuff.

The acting is pretty painful at some parts, and the characters are sloppily written and uninteresting, but the thing that saves Solomon Kane from complete failure is its dazzling visuals and well executed action.

a great movie. it was just like the pulps & comic books i read, James Purefoy
did a amazing job as Solomon Kane.

Solomon Kane falls prey to some of the typical fantasy cliches, but the gore and action eye candy are glorious enough to entertain.

I thought the fights were very well done and I liked seeing some familiar faces.

I loved it. While I don't think it's a cinematic masterpiece, I loved the aspect of the "dark" knight or the bad man makes good. I also adore James Purefoy! =)

An *almost* good movie. Skip it.

Solomon Kane is such a badass that he was like a one man savior. Cinematography is very impressive which to the extent it can be seen in the line of The Lord of the Rings Trilogy or maybe and it can be as one of the best fantasy epics we have seen in years. Very surprising and very impressive. Not bad at all.

Yet another comic book hero movie, but the post-Medieval setting does make this one feel a bit fresher and the action is decent enough.

Based on a character created by Robert E Howard before he created his more famous Conan, this is a so-so film, that you could see where it was heading from quite early on. Also quite easy to spot the influences on it (especially the far superior Lord of the Rings), and I now know where David Gemmell got his influence for his character of Waylander in the book of the same name!

Not to bad, if you like this stuff.

Based on the Robert E. Howard character Soloman Kane stars James Purefoy of The Following and Rome, based in England during the 1600's. The Devil, Witches, and real Wizardry fighting for souls. Gothic stuff, but good stuff. The Director holds true to the REH World. Better than I thought it would be, not Oscar material but perfect for streaming on Netflix. Worth the watch.

Gritty, stylish and relentless, 'Kane' displays its pulpy badge with pride. Efficent use of what is a small budget by typical action fare standards, and a commanding performance from Purefoy, certainly help.

Really dark, really pulpy, and surprisingly good! The filmmakers took a lot of chances with this one!

Great dramatic movie, epic storyline, and a whole lot of action. This movie isnt just another mindless slash 'em up flicks, it has a good engaging storyline and you feel a connection with the character. The special effects are great, especially when showing the devils minions. You can relate to the character, and the only reason it has four stars is because it does seem long at times with unneeded arcs, but in the end it is worth the watch.

Fantasy action nonsense, probably a wet dream for 12 year olds but rather stupid if youre grown up..
