Storyline

Once a mercenary of Queen Elizabeth I fighting Spaniards in Africa, Solomon 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. That is until the followers of sorcerer Malachi kidnap a Puritan girl, Meredith Crowthorn, and brutally slaughter her family before his very eyes, forcing Solomon to take up arms and return to his violent ways once more to rescue her.

Trivia

The coat that Philip Winchester wears is the same one worn by Sean Connery in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991). Both films share the same costume designer - John Bloomfield. See more »

Goofs

The ship shown crossing in front of the burning city in the beginning of the film belongs to a type who appeared much later. The plain bow design, the lack of square sprit-sail, the jibs and the aft marconi sail are features typical of a nineteen century or later ship. See more »

Quotes

Solomon Kane: [narrating] There was a time when the world was plunging into darkness. A time of witchcraft and sorcery. A time when no one stood against evil.

A Gripping Yarn
23 May 2010 | by davidgduncanSee all my reviews

I liked it. A film very much in the vein of The Mummy series, but with a more adult and dark side. I found the film full of atmosphere and it drew me in despite the shallow story line, which is to be expected given that it's a hero driven action flick. I thought that the effects, make-up, music, acting, directing, really the whole thing was very solid and it's not just another low budget flick as other reviewers have stated. I would welcome a sequel to this movie, although that might be stretching the storyline a tad too much. Sure, not the masterpiece of the Lord of the Rings but certainly a good hack n slash medieval romp that'll keep you entertained for the duration.
