"Solomon Kane" succeeds by embracing its identity as a straightforward genre exercise, complete with bone-crunching and blood-spurting action. By not aiming for more, it hits its target.

Who knew there were skinhead and zombie equivalents in late-Elizabethan England?

It's hardly original (and Max von Sydow is wasted in brief scenes as Kane's father), but "Solomon Kane" is worthy of big-screen appreciation.

Mr. Basset is too enamored of the usual action film clichés ... But he has a graphic visual style that suits the simplistic material and he keeps you watching even as the wet, sucking sounds of skewered flesh grows tedious.

It grinds along on the dubious strengths of its generic battle sequences and midbudget special effects, whipped up around a stone-faced hero who's part Christ figure, part embodiment of wickedness, all crippling bore.

[It] does have its moments and gets better as it goes along.

The results suggest a compelling movie could be made from the material, even if it isn't this one.

It is, for a contemporary CGI-fraught fantasy-slash-living-video-game, not at all bad, dotted with moments of Bosch and steady on its storytelling feet.
September 25, 2012
A borrowed mélange of Lord of the Rings pomp, weightless CGI sorcery, artfully smudged cheekbones and exceedingly dull sword slicings.

A monstrously entertaining action-adventure... the film's epic vision bears comparison with the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy, its imaginative supernatural elements confidently fused with a savage reality.

This muscular yet monotonous Kane just isn't much fun.
