'Solomon Kane' Synopsis

As the story opens, Kane and his band of pillagers are carving a bloody path through hordes of defenders in an exotic city in northern Africa. But, when Kane decides to attack a mysterious nearby castle to plunder its rumored riches, his mission takes a fateful turn. One by one, Kane’s men are picked off by demonic creatures until he alone is left to face the Devil’s own Reaper -- dispatched from the depths of Hell to lay claim to his hopelessly corrupt soul. Though Kane at last manages to escape, he knows that he now must redeem himself by renouncing violence and devoting himself wholly to a life of peace and purity.

His newfound spirituality, however, is quickly put to the ultimate test when he begins his journey across an England ravaged by diabolical human Raiders controlled by a terrifying, masked Overlord. After Kane fails to thwart the brutal slaughter of the Crowthorns, a Puritan family that has befriended him, he vows to find and free their enslaved daughter Meredith -- even if it means jeopardizing his own soul by re-embracing his murderous talents for a higher cause. His determined search eventually brings him face to face with his family’s own deadly secrets as he attempts to save Meredith and all of England from the forces of evil.

    Perfect little action flick with a solid cast, even though Purefoy did a fine job playing Kane, I could have seen other actors doing it a bit better, still I love the film as is! My kind of flick for sure! Need to make a sequel quick though, especially if Purefoy is to return, cause he's getting on up there age wise.

    what they should have done years ago was release it world wide...And I bet it would have reached 30 to 50 million mark in one weekend.
    what's past is past.
    this would have had a sequel by now if that happened.
