    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

      While those may be deterred from this movie for the sole reason of it not being popular, this is one move you should judge by the cover (or any for that matter). This movie is entertaining and pretty sweet ! I would reccommend it to those who like dark movies, specifically it reminds me of Van Helsing and Brothers Grim mixed with Blade for some reason. It has medevil combat and some medieval action. Recommended !

      SOLOMON KANE is easily the best adaptation of a Robert E. Howard character. John Milius' CONAN THE BARBARIAN being the only other film that even comes close. That's not to say I didn't enjoy some of the others, such as KULL. SOLOMON KANE shines on all levels--excellent script, direction and production values. James Purefoy was perfect for the role. Highly recommended!

      This is a great Epic movie about Conflicts in a person's faith! Basically it is about how God uses people with different gifts to get His work done. The Hero is a a person, destined to hell, makes a deal with God to change his ways, to not go to hell. Then he becomes a killer to rescue a Christian, killing many more in the process! A great movie with awesome special effects!

      Great story presented with clear, quality blu-ray transfer. Very dark film of good vs. evil with excellent cinematography, wardrobe and location. The main character was cast well and delivered a skilled and ruthless Solomon Kane. Graphic deaths and vivid special effects.

      James Purefoy is excellent in the role of Solomon Kane. He is one of my favorite sword swinging European actors, along side Liam Nesson, and does a great job in this film. There are elements of horror, fantasy, action, and history in this movie. It's a great time.

      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.

      Very good film and worth the price of admission at $5.99. I had rented it originally, but when I saw this on the shelf at that price I could pass it up. Great score too! I wish I could have seen it in the theater originally.

      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.
