REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..not at all bad, dotted with moments of Bosch and steady on its storytelling feet..”
by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]
“..in truth, this muscular yet monotonous "Kane" just isn't much fun..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
3 of 5

“..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..”
by David Hughes [Empire Magazine]
3 of 5

“..despite its disappointing ending, Solomon Kane is an entertaining and surprisingly dark fantasy adventure with a strong performance by James Purefoy..”
by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]
