WTF? No plot or relevant backstory. It's a bad mish-mash of styles - Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Superhero, corny period piece. Not particularly well done special effects and not impressive visually - lots of... Read moredark, empty spaces. James Purefoy with his gorgeous voice and hard arsed looks who was so convincing and sexy as Mark Anthony in the TV series Rome was apalling which ironically enough he would of had to work at as the man is usually very convincing.
Swords and sorcery make a splashy return to the big screen in this epic tale of a once-murderous sea captain -- Solomon Kane (James Purefoy) -- who's now holed up in a monastery in retreat from the devil, whom he fears is coming for his soul. Kane soon learns, however, that he can't hide forever, and when a horde of powerful thugs invades the landscape, Kane realizes that the path to redemption lies in defending those who are weak.
