Synopsis


Solomon Kane
A nomadic 16th century warrior, condemned to hell for his brutal past, seeks redemption by renouncing violence, but finds some things are worth burning for as he fights to free a young Puritan woman from the grip of evil. Adapted from the pulpy sword-and-sorcery stories by Conan the Barbarian creator Robert E. Howard, the film opens to find Solomon Kane (James Purefoy) and his ruthless band of marauders laying siege to a city in Northern Africa. Beckoned to an enigmatic castle filled with untold riches, Kane soon realizes that his greed has sealed his fate when the Devil's minions decimate his ranks, leaving him alone to battle the infernal Reaper (Ian Whyte) that has come to claim his tainted soul. But Kane cheats death, and upon escaping, learns that his only hope to avoid being cast into the lake of fire is to walk the path of peace. Meanwhile, as Kane makes his way across England, the sinister Overlord (Samuel Roukin) uses his ruthless Raiders to seize control of the country, killing for pleasure and striking terror into the hearts of peaceful Puritans like the Crowthorns -- who generously offered Kane food and shelter on his arduous journey. When the Crowthorns are brutally laid to waste by the Raiders, who subsequently kidnap and enslave their innocent daughter Meredith (Rachel Hurd-Wood), Kane vows to rescue her and prevent England from being consumed by evil, even if it means confronting his family's dark past and sacrificing his immortal soul in the process. Pete Postlethwaite and Max von Sydow co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    A great telling of a Robert E. Howard character. The main character nails portraying Solomon Kane. Very good movie that never got a proper U.S. release as far as I know. Highly recommended.

    This was a really good watch...I enjoyed it, and my hubby, who read all the books/stories said it was an amazing ( previously non-existant) origin story for a lesser-known, but no less compelling, Robert E. Howard character.

    Good movie if you are an action Junkie it fits the part. For those with great surround sound the 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio is great.

    While watchable, Solomon Kane does nothing new or exiting for the genre. No surprises, just Conan the barbarian type action.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
