The promise of 80's fantasy forfilled, 25 May 2010
I have never read the original books but have read a lot of the fantasy swords and sorcery genre and sure have watched a lot of rubbish straight to DVD fantasy movies so I have to say I was mightly pleased with Solomon Kane.
For a low budget fantasy film, it actually delivered a good round story and dynamic stints of action.
James Purefory was excellent playing the tortured soul and managed to carry off the action hero bit.
It was a pain to track down a cinema showing it, but I found the film entertaining and containing some solid story telling . I left the cinema with a little spark of hope that the Hollywood "powers that be" would make a sequel to expand on the Solomon K folklore.
