Michael J. Bassett’s long-delayed, 2009 fantasy epic “Solomon Kane” is finally getting a theatrical release Stateside this September, albeit a limited one. But hey, it’s finally getting out there, so that’s a major improvement from when it wasn’t, you know, getting out there. In case you are one of the few people who have been anticipating this and haven’t managed to see it in the intervening three years, here’s a new clip from the film to get you all excited and such. Avoid dark cellars, Solomon Kane! Sigh. He never listens to me.
Captain Solomon Kane is a brutally efficient 16th Century killing machine. Armed with his signature pistols, cutlass and rapier, he and his men unleash their bloodlust as they fight for England in war after war on all continents. 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.
