SOLOMON KANE (Theatrical Release Spain 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

Solomon Kane
serves up a healthy portion of philosophical fare concerning individual life purpose, judgment of right/wrong/good/evil, and redemptive factors that may play when one steps outside of personally established moral standards to serve the needs of others. It becomes good, after movie discussion material. Solomon Kane (James Purefoy) delivers a type of Van Helsing interpretation for his assigned role.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It is a good intellectual study that delves into moral questions that have been resolved in a variety of ways by societies across the world and through the ages. Van Helsing delivers higher entertainment value for time and money.
