What is Solomon Kane about?
Solomon Kane has made a name for himself as a merciless pirate lord, but one day the just punishment overtakes him: Death wants to take his soul and Kane just manages to save himself from eternal damnation at the last second. Renouncing violence and bloodshed, he lives in peace in a monastery for a year until he is asked to leave the abbey because the Dark Forces are still after him.

When brutal mercenaries under the command of the evil magician Malachi ( Jason Flemyng ) attack Kane’s new family and kidnap daughter Meredith ( Rachel Hurd-Wood ), the reformed man is forced to take up arms again — even if his soul is then lost for good…
