    Dang! I've read a lot of Robert E. Howard's stuff, but only a few about Kane. It looks to be rather interesting, and the trailer certainly captured the mood and tone of Howard's stories. Thanks for sharing this.

    I've watched the movie and it's really great! It really reflects the feeling of R.E.Howard's works. We are lucky if the new Conan movie is a as half as good as this one.

    It's an origin story, not based on any particular story.

    There are actually several threads on this same subject.

    Craig, the fans think that Van Helsing seemed to similar that it would be a waste of money to release it in the states. So it's probably only going to available on DVD. I think you can go on Amazon and pre-order it.

    I didn't think the movie lived up to the trailer... Some parts were well done and some were very tacky... Especially the ending.

    I can't wait to see Solomon Kane, actually. James Purefoy was awesome as Mark Anthony in HBO's Rome; he seems like a great choice for a role like this.

    Such tragic irony, considering that the clowns who made Van Helsing totally ripped off Kane's "look"...

    James Purefoy is absolutely excellent as Kane. He portays Kane as a believable, deep and three dimensional character.

    Well, that is what I would expect from Purefoy. He's a top-notch actor.

    Hi Sam. I don't go on the various forums too much these days. I hope all is well with you. How's bladesmithing going?
