‘Solomon Kane’ Movie Review

Kristen Elizabeth

Born and raised in Florida, but currently living in Los Angeles, Kristen spent most of her life wanting to be in the movies until she realized that she wanted to write for them more. When she's not patronizing the Arclight theatre, she can be found either reading a good, old-fashioned bodice ripper, discussing the failures of George Lucas with her friends over cherry pie at Mel's Diner or trying to round up one or more of her Star Trek RPG players. She's a proud member of the Romance Writers of America and recently finished her first novel.

     I started to make you look stupid for this asinine review…but then I saw you were a trekkie…and all became clear.

      Aww, thank you for reading and reviewing.

      And don’t worry about making me look stupid.  That sort of thing only happens when someone is personally offended by a stranger’s opinion of something as trivial as an action movie and feels the need to insult them based on their TV preferences.

    One of the few things the film got right in regards to the source material is that Solomon Kane does not have “love interests”: he’s a chaste puritan who has no interest in women whatsoever, unless they need rescuing. Having him hook up with Meridith would just undermine one of the only things about the film that actually resembled the original character. Plus Rachel Hurd-Wood was young enough to be Purefoy’s daughter, so a romance (while not a problem for Elizabethans) would’ve been a bit awkward for modern audiences.

      First of all, thank you for disagreeing with me without feeling the need to insult me.  Second of all, thank you for reading;)

      I totally would have been okay without a romance…if they hadn’t given every indication that it was leading up to one.  When I see a pretty girl watching a man strip down and bathe with a very un-Puritan look in her eye, yeah, I expect some resolution on that front.  That’s all:) 

      But again, thank you.
