In a lot of ways this movie has a distinctly Diablo feel to it. Did they make a Diablo movie yet? Oh dear, yes, but not what I'm talking about. James Purefoy plays our lead character Solomon Kane. He really gives the role his all. I mean, there isn't a ton to work with here, but that does not stop our hero. Purefoy's greatest character of course was Prince Edward in A Knight's Tale. There are some other people in the movie. For reasons known only to him, Max Von Sydow shows up.
I suppose I should talk about the plot a little. Well, there is a pirate who is a really good fighter, and apparently he made a deal with the Devil. There's some time spent in a monastery, and then Kane decides to get some revenge. He is pretty good at revenge it turns out. The IMDB rating is in the 6s. You can't expect the world here.
If you have a few hours on a rainy Saturday you can do worse than this movie. Honestly, this is an enjoyable, albeit kitschy, movie. 6/10 seems about right.
p.s. Spoiler Alert: The Hound shows up.
