Based on a one of the many rotating protagonists of the sci-fi fantasy magazine "Weird Tales," Solomon Kane is an all-encompassing hunter of evil, focusing primarily on Satan and whatever version of which he has to slay. Michael J. Bassett's film adaptation, which has been around internationally since 2009, follows the traditional origin arc with a lot of soul and sword swinging.
James Purefoy stars as Kane, the perfect medieval Han Solo: a dingy mercenary/captain, duel wielding his blades, loot castles and kill whoever he wants. Solomon Kane is currently playing in theaters. Read our review.
