It's not bad.

James Purefoy is a great British talent (from my Cdo's home base), brilliant in several movies (initially as a minor role) - A Knight's Tale), Solomon Kane, etc. I believe you yanks can't see it, or something or other, I'd definitely advocate a way of watching it, one of the best fantasy/horror films of the last few years.

And the other actors, Jason Flemyng, Jamie Foreman, and one of the worlds best actors, Brian Cox make it fucking stellar.

Very underated, but I think that's because it has the tagline of being similar to Zack Snyder's 300 saw many people think *fuck it*.

Oh an Bree Condon? *mmnmnmnmnhhh*

Not sure - can you get on youtube? Search Solomon Kane, someone should have uploaded some clips in the US. If not, I'm always sure there's torren-*sound-of-gunshot*

The act of Pirating copyrighted video and the watching of said pirated content is naughty, by order of the Inquisition.

Love the actors in this, they are all fantastic... but I felt the film itself wasn't that good. it was needlessly bloody and pretty silly in places. Worth watching, but I wouldn't rate it a must see.

I think Salomon Kane is an excellent film, definitely would recommend that one. I think its quite similar to Priest, except while Priest has been widely advertised and was quite disappointing Solomon Kane isn't that well known and is excellent.

the endless violence was amazing... i will have to find this salomon movie everyone keeps talking aboutwas . it's a must watch imo because it had a gritt to it (although sometimes comical) that a lot of movies lack now a days. and when he chopped that dude nearly in half i pooped a little.

I'm currently waiting for this to turn up from Love Film, looking forward to seeing it as its set literally 200 yards from where I live, I walk past the castle on a daily basis.

Got this on DVD at the moment, don't know why, but for some reason I find myself reluctant to watch it.

Watched it last year I think. It was ok, some good actors (I love Purefoy since Rome and his great role as Marc Anthony), but script wasn't that good, and Giamato's performance was over the top.
