Solomon Kane Blu-ray Review

Literary character Solomon Kane makes his leap from the fantasy book realm to the Big Screen with a low-key, suitably dark and oppressive origin tale about his journey from damned soul to relentless avenging angel. This kind of tale of redemption may feel familiar to many, and the story itself may upset a few fans of the character – who find it hard to accept the newly fabricated elements – but it is a solid enough production which truly is a great example of what an enthusiastic young Director can do with £23 Million. Van Helsing’s Stephen Sommers could take lessons from Michael J. Bassett when it comes to filmmaking. For its Blu-ray release we get decent video, superior audio and a thoroughly comprehensive set of extras, making this a worthy purchase not only for Kane fans (who would be advised to give it a chance), but also for those interested in how to make a decent-looking low-budget fantasy production. This may not break any boundaries, but it is a solid entry nonetheless, and bodes well as a set up for a potentially superior franchise.

Watched last night - awesome movie.:thumbsup:
The wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it throughout but would up the scores to 9 out of 10 across the board for the movie itself, the picture and the sound.
In fact the sound was bordering a 10 out of 10 due to the awesomeness of the 'fire monster'.:clap:
Great entertainment!!
