Review: Solomon Kane is the creation of author Robert E. Howard. I really don't know much about him except that he created Conan the Barbarian. The only reason I decided to see this movie was actually because one of my brothers mentioned it. Solomon Kane is a action fantasy movie about a mercenary who owes his soul to the devil and redeems himself by fighting evil. Yeah, the movie is about as intelligent as it sounds. But that's ok. That's kind of what you expect when you watch a movie like this. Solomon Kane is not half bad actually. James Purefoy is quite good as the main character and amongst the rest of the cast we find Max von Sydow, Pete Postlewaite and Alice Krige. It's a movie well worth checking out if you like these kinds of movies.
