Solomon Kane : When the world mastered by Devil and Witch
Posted on April 26, 2010 | New Movie
From the title alone has brought ordinary spectators to the conclusion that the main plot of this movie is about the main character named Solomon Kane.
If we are familiar with Ben-Hur, King Arthur, Van Helsing, to Robin Hood, then you will be easier to guess where the story is, even until the end of the story. And this is the main weakness of this movie, too formulatik and not seek new breakthroughs.
The movie was done by Michael Basset story lifted from a fictional character created by Robert E. Howard, who appeared in the magazine Weird Tales in the 16th century, and serves as a wanderer who eradicate the evil and cruel witch.
Narrated, Solomon (James Purefoy) is one of the criminal gangs in North Africa in the late 16th century. When other criminals wanted his life, Kane escaped with a reason ie to find ways to save himself by transforming himself into a good man and full of devotion. When starting a new life that is, conflict arises, as he had to go back to using force.
One day, Solomon was in a ship with a British mercenary who was at war with Spain. With them, the Solomon entered the castle inhabited by the devil. He also fought with the King Devil, Devil’s Reaper, but managed to escape. That’s when our hero cursed Satan, and stated that Kane as his own soul.
Since then, after returning to England, he originally wanted to live normal and peaceful adventure again forced to fight evil, particularly evil witch named Malachi (Jason Flemyng). And of course, penyedapnya is a beautiful woman, Meredith Crowthorn (Rachel Hurd-Wood), a figure who was kidnapped Marachi and her entire family were massacred in cold blood. To the extent there is a romantic dialogue in the midst of the hustle and bustle of darkness. “Why do you care at all about him? Did not you here to save your soul?” Malachi said. Answered, he is my soul.
At first glance, the feel and look similar to this film trilogy The Lord of the Ring. The atmosphere is grim, dark, and gloomy atmosphere of the overall umbrella for the beginning to the end of Chechnya as a location seems very supportive. The monster is also not much different. However, a duration of 104 minutes this film is more sadistic when scenes of massacres and battles. Depictions of the creature in ‘Middle Earth’ is so convincing, and this is the result of hard work before Patrick Tatopoulos who designed the Godzilla, Underworld, Silent Hill, and I Am Legend.
The film is planned as the first part of a trilogy. For the lovers of this genre, or a fan of comics, of course this movie is very interesting. But for those who do not, be prepared to feel bored because there are no surprises and challenges means. [okezone]
