Quite an under-rated movie. Solomon Kane is a creation of Robert E. Howard. I really enjoy this movie, the story is good, and Purefoy and Postlethwaite give brilliant performances.

  NOT BAD AT ALL

| | See all HONESTBAZ's reviews (299)

Decent story about redemption and revenge this,far better than feared.
It tells the story of a fighter in wars who is quite sadistic and enjoys the killing and brutality,but after an encounter with the reaper,decides he needs to change his ways and becomes a decent man,detirmined to put fighting in the past and leave it there. But when those he lives with are attacked,resulting in a loved one being taken,he realizes he must once again fight,not only to save his own soul,but others too.
This may be too slow for some,with not quite enough action,but i felt it did did a decent job and the action was solid enough with some great effects to add to it. Upon buying this,i feared for the worst,hoped for the best. I wasn't disapointed.

  Bloody Brilliant

This must be one of the most underrated films ever. Simply top-notch entertainment from start to finish. I love the fact that this film was produced in a most un-holywood like manner. Watching the special features you can tell allot of thought and effort went into the production. Really hope a sequel gets the green light, and James Purfoy returns to his best role yet!!

  Pure tomfoolery

Bassett is able to make a decent fist of the 17th century Puritan warrior despite having a very limited budget. The film looks great, Purefoy is convincing as the avenger with a conscience and the alternate-world medieval look is a striking mix of Lord of the Rings and Monty Python and the Holy Grail. That does not exactly bypass the fact that this is all relentlessly silly, and that our hero seems to lose his mojo for the entire middle section of the film but this is still not a bad representation of pulp material.

This absolutely amazing film has changed the way we live! This God of a man will always have a place in our hearts. whoever gave this film less than 5 stars will experience the wrath of pain from solomon. He deserves a knighthood!

  Cheap and rushed

| | See all Bebbet's reviews (6)

It all starts with such promise. A pirate with some natty sword skills, laying waste to a fortress before being attacked by hall full of possessed mirrors and Hell's own angel of death.

Things then slow greatly, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. A lot of wandering through sumptuous countryside as the character is slowly developed, and we wait for the inevitable moment when it all kicks off. And eventually it does.

But as time goes on, the action becomes increasingly sloppy in both direction and choreography. Solomon's quest slumps along with the pace and irregularity of a fawn on roller-skates. The core moral and emotional conflict faced towards the end makes little sense given the antagonist's past and the big, bad evil is in and out in under 5 minutes with zero development.

The first half of this film holds so much potential, but it is all squandered by a rushed and lazy second half.

  Best movie ever

This is my first review on play.com, just ordered the movie today and wanted to say that I have watched this and it has become my favourite movie so far =p. And so just had to purchase my first blu-ray which is this. For 5 pounds its really cheap and has alot of value as in watching it again and again, i've watched it like 5 times by now lool. So its not really those movies that is a one timer, well for me it isn't XD.
