A film based on the fictional character created writer Robert E. Howard, who also came up with Conan. Kane is a 17th century puritan who’s got a massive chip on his shoulder and stomps around the place vanquishing evil. In the film Kane is played by James Purefoy who adopted a bizarre west country lilt for the role, which serves to give the hero a possibly unintentional comedy edge. Otherwise is some good, solid muddy action.
