Solomon Kane

High-Def Digest
24 July 2013
  • Conclusion: No one is more surprised than I am to discover that 'Solomon Kane' turns out to be a pretty good movie. With so many films being released that don't meet expectations, here's one that actually lives up to the rumors and rumblings about the movie that you've heard over the years. While it may never get the sequel it deserves, there's a good chance this one will maintain its cult status for many years to come.

  • Conclusion: Even in the unlikely event that you hold a special place in your heart for the adventures of pulp fiction icon Robert E. Howard, Solomon Kane probably won't do much for you. Undoubtedly, "R-rated fantasy action film" will attract a certain audience and while the movie earns that description, it doesn't offer anything compelling or memorable.

Solomon Kane Blu-ray Review

15 July 2013
  • Summary: Your soul is damned. The fictional Solomon Kane's origins date back to the late 1920s, the man clad in black and battler of evil a pulp magazine creation of Writer Robert E. Howard. The character has since evolved with several tales and, now, a rather good motion picture adaptation that captures an essence of good-versus-evil in a classically styled narrative built around a grim overlay, visual excitement, and only a few key special effects. Writer/Director Michael J.

  • Conclusion: I heard rumblings about Solomon Kane way back in 2008 when the film was in production, and some corners of the Internet have been in love with Michael J. Bassett's violent fantasy film ever since. Solomon Kane features a commanding lead in James Purefoy, but neither he nor the supporting cast is given much to work with in this underwritten film.

Solomon Kane

AV Club

  • Excerpt: “The eyes of the man in black,” Robert E. Howard writes of his pulp hero Solomon Kane, “were cold but deep; gazing into them, one had the impression of looking into countless fathoms of ice.” Howard’s third most famous creation, after Conan and Kull, Solomon Kane fought his way through a handful of adventures distinguished mostly by Howard’s usual breathless prose and the hero’s identity as a supernatural creature fighting Puritan, kicking ass for the Lord across several...

  • Conclusion: If weapons and wizardry get your blood up, and you prefer your movies dark and brooding and minus the sandals, Solomon Kane fits the bill. It may lack The Lord Of The Rings’ majesty, but Robert E. Howard fans will lap it up.

Solomon Kane (Blu-ray)

5 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Jag finner många saker intressanta och värda att fundera på. Varför dras myggor till myggspiraler fastän verkan borde vara omvänd? Varför är det onyttigt att nysa eller börja skratta högt då man dyker? Varför blir man bakfull av en mustig blandning av rödtjut och tjeckisk pilsner? Ja, frågorna är många, men idag vill jag investigera följande fråga litet mer ingående: Varför har jag inte ens hört talas om Solomon Kane och OM jag gjort det, varför kommer jag inte ihåg...

  • Conclusion: Howardin keksimistä hahmoista. Vähemmälle huomiolle jäänyt Solomon Kane tekee yllättävän esiintulon valkokankaalle elokuvassa, joka ei ole erityisen uskollinen Howardille, mutta on hyvällä tavalla vanhanaikainen seikkailuelokuva. Solomon Kan ...

Solomon Kane (2009)

22 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Soms kan het verfrissend zijn als je een megaslechte film ziet. In dat licht was het best koud in de Pathé bij Solomon Kane ; we moesten zeker twee keer keihard lachen vanwege de stupiditeit van de dialogen. Wat een debiele film was dát. “ From the legendary author of Conan The Barbarian” zegt natuurlijk ook al genoeg .
