PostHeaderIcon Solomon Kane Review

GD Star Rating

Once a mercenary of Queen Elizabeth I fighting Spainards in Africa, He met the Devil’s Reaper and discovered he was bound for hell! Barely escaping he soon renounced violence to atone for his past sins, seeking out redemption in a life of peace, but peace cannot be given so easily.

Solomon Kane starts off quickly with the action and grasps the viewer with what is to become of the protagonist. The story isn’t ground breaking, but steers away from being too cliche and predictable. The action scenes are good and as the story progresses it doesn’t slowdown too much even during the non action sequences. James Purefoy stars as Solomon Kane and does a good job overall. A few times he overacted and his lines came out cheesy causing a chuckle, but he was still able to carry the film. The rest of the cast was sufficient for the time and era, but no real stand out performances.

The music was fairly impressive and had an epic tone to it. I was also pretty impressed with the environments and the sets they used. Solomon Kane is a relatively low budget film, but minus a few obvious CGI scenes looks as if it could be a big budget Hollywood movie. The production value was fairly impressive and the film is enjoyable.

Ratings Explained

10-9 = Very few movies will get a 9 or 10 and it is reserved for great movies with very few flaws. The acting, direction, music, plot, and ending all have to be excellent.

8-7 = Most highly recommended movies will fall under this range. They will be enjoyable and get a positive recommendation. Some flaws in the film will keep it from getting a higher score, but definitely worth checking out.

6-5 = Films in this range have several flaws and may be entertaining, but lack most of the qualities that make films great. These are generally reserved for when you want to watch a film and don't have too many options.

4-3 = Anything in this range isn't very good, but has a few positives throughout to keep it from getting the lowest scores. Even though the score is low there is still a chance some people may like these.

2-1 = The bottom of the barrel, the only difference between 2 and 1 is that if I can finish the movie it automatically gets a 2, but if it is so terrible that I need to turn it off before it ends then it gets a 1.
