Solomon Kane (REVIEW)

The last of Robert E. Howard’s seminal pulp heroes to get the film treatment, “Solomon Kane” fares better than Kull, but (perhaps just barely) eludes the classic appeal of John Milus’s “Conan the Barbarian.” Unfortunately “Kane,” which is already on DVD in its native United Kingdom, is unlikely to see a wide theatrical release in the US, joining Jonathan Levine’s “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane” among the rolls of genre films that have garnered critical acclaim on the festival circuit but then vanished into distribution limbo.

Video: Two Clips From "Solomon Kane"

We've got a couple of videos from the upcoming "Solomon Kane" today. The movie is a fun filled romp about a guy who fights the devil to get his soul back. Sounds like the feel good hit of the summer.

The first clip, "The Final Assault on the Castle", shows Solomon and his band of friends going up to a castle and assaulting it. Sounds pretty straight forward.
