Awful, except if you are a 12 year old with no taste in action movies. Why the 'hero' of the piece gets to try for redemption to get to heaven but no other bad guys do is never explained, and is a major flaw. Any movie that ends up with two villians (three if you include the demon) shows a lack of script development. Oh, and it is super predictable. This flopped bigtime - it wasn't even released in the US which doesn't surprise. I'd give it 0 but don't want anyone to think I forgot to click the little star.

Dark, satanic, medieval with lots of gory action. Not a bad movie if you like that.

Enjoyed it well enough. Thought some of the acting was a bit average but enjoyed the story and the action.

Solomon Kane was a tale of a brother unseeding his evil brother. I thought it was more suited to the teenager market.

Quite a good movie. I was a little surprised as I didn't think it would be any good at all. Was much better than watching the crap that was on the tele.

ultimately not the best movie i have seen with witches, the devil and other demonic beings but still a good movie to watch. plenty of gore which is always good.

It wasn't too bad, a bit cheesy, with a bit of everything thrown in; mercenaries, witches, the devil, heaps of blood and decapitations...
