Captain Solomon Kane is a brutally efficient 16th century killing machine. When Kane decides to attack a mysterious nearby castle to plunder its rumored riches, his men are picked off by demonic creatures until he alone is left to face the Devil's own Reaper, dispatched from the depths of Hell to lay claim to his hopelessly corrupt soul. Though Kane manages to escape, he knows that he now must redeem himself by renouncing violence and devoting himself wholly to a life of peace and purity.

"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.

Wasn't terrible but I expected more from the author of Conan the Barbarian which was pretty good.

Why this wasn't released in the USA in 2009 (when it was released overseas) is a mystery, since it's the best adaptation of Robert E. Howard yet made. It deviates from Howard's stories by giving Kane an origin, but that doesn't lessen the film's impact one bit. Dark, gloomy and extremely violent, it evokes REH like no other movie. It's so full of brutal head loppings, crucifixions and bloody swordfights, you can't help but be satisfied! Not to mention the monsters, witches and assorted other supernatural beasties Kane has to put down. Highly recommended--and I SO wish these were the guys doing CONAN. Wow.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining.

Could have been so much better.

Based on Robert E. Howard at his most complex and interesting,.. written & directed by a genuine devotee.

Realistic production values add to the impact !

James Purefoy with long hair - dreamy. And read about Robert E. Howard, 1906-1936 - very interesting.
