Conan the Barbarian Part 2 - Solomon Kane review by CS

Spoiler Alert
14/10/2010

I am presuming that Solomon Kane is a comic strip character, as the film has that feel to it. The plot is so simple that there is virtually no plot. Without giving too much away, Kane has a date with the Devil and is desperately trying to hold onto his soul, que a series of 'Conan the Barbarian' type adventures. In fact this is really simply a re-make of all those 80's fantasy films like 'Conan' and even a bit of 'Sinbad' and Greek Myth style thrown in for good measure.

The special effects are very good, but too computer generated to the point that very little in the film appears real. Again few of the effects or scenes are original with many elements pinched from other films, I'm sure you will recognise glimpses of 'The Mummy' , 'Harry Potter' and a thousand and one other fantasy films in here. This almost looks as though it was made to be a computer game and the film came second.

A good action adventure film for the family with nothing too scary for over ten year olds, just a good bit of Saturday night brainless fun. The wizard, Devil and monster bots might be a bit too scary for little 'uns though. And that's it, no plot so you don't need a brain to watch this, just some beers, pizza and popcorn and you're away.

Good subtitles for anyone with a hearing loss also.
