Solomon Kane

Solomon KaneStarringJames PurefoyMax von SydowPete Postlethwaite

Directed by: Michael J. Bassett (obscure crap-maker)

Year: 2009

Plot: Path to redemption leads though slaughter of the bad guys. Trite, cliche and formulaic – we shall rest our case here, since we’re running out of adverbs.

Pros: Beautiful cinematography. Fantastic cast having a bad case of ‘how did I get roped into this’?

Cons: James Purefoy borrowed a page from Christian Bale’s acting manual: when your character is one-dimensional and uninspiring, make him sound like you have laryngitis and problem solved!
