Sound quality is pretty good on the blu-ray. Cinematography is very good (obviously the movie started out ambitiously, seems to have been failed by some of the post-production and distribution) and the blu-ray's picture quality shows that off.
James Purefoy, Solomon, has renewed purpose after years of violence and death; in fear his soul will be forsaken if he continues his mercenary ways. Vowing to never take another life he lives a life of peace and pacifism. When he meets a traveling family Solomon joins them, unbeknownst to him it sets him on a path that will leave him losing it all.
This movie falls under the genre of supernatural fantasy, it's a quest story that is heavy on a battle of good against evil. I thought that the movie might be based on a graphic novel but he was created by Robert E. Howard and published as a series of short story series popular during the early age of pulp fiction. Howard was also the writer who created the characters Conan the Barbarian, Red Sonja, and Kull the Conqueror. Many believe his characters were made for film and are less interesting as they were conceived by Howard.
I recommend Solomon Kane for fans of Centurion, Highlander, and Game of Thrones.
My only regret was not buying the blueray version with the digital copy.
