Solomon Kane Reviews
Purefoy and Director Bassett go with that and concoct a rambling, gory and over the top origin story for England's most famous puritan. Witches, warlocks, murderous demonic raiders they all make an appearance. Convoluted love stories are set aside, the story focusing instead on Kane's evolution as a man trying to lead a better life of peace and meeting challenges at every turn.
Solomon Kane is far from being a perfect movie, a technical achievement or a landmark in cinema. But it is a damn good sword and sorcery tale, immensely entertaining and taking itself seriously enough to be a truly enjoyable borderline B movie.
A movie with 1st class production values based around a 2nd class script. The movie looks great, with some fine location work, and the cast is quite strong, but it never amounts to anything because the slack writing doesn't fit the solid visuals leaving an uneven feel and an unsatisfying end result. This though is worth a watch as it's entertaining enough, but as an A movie its lacking depth, and as a B movie its just not fun enough.
It's Van Helsing meets Dante's Inferno,
it's an intense action packed fantasy thriller, and I highly recommend Solomon Kane to anyone who really enjoys fantasy movies with nonstop action because this one delivers :-)
