    G-S-T Review…Solomon Kane

    I don’t know if I’m doing Solomon Kane any favors by discussing its common ancestry; connecting the film to a gene pool that contains Van Helsing and Season of the Witch brands it with a very specific set of very low expectations. In fact, I may be damning Solomon Kane with faint praise when I say that it happens to be several cuts above both of those disasters.

Now that Gladiators, Spartans and the like have nearly run their course, jolly old English era films are again looking to be a hot item. Last year we had Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood which was met with mostly mixed reviews (I kind of liked it). Now…
