Every once in a while, the newly launched Xbox Movies serves up a free movie weekend. They usually pick the worst they can find with enough redeemable stars to mark you interested, all in guise of making you want to use their own video renting app rather than the likes of Vudu, CinemaNow, or Redbox Instant. This week might be the exception. Michael J. Bassett’s SOLOMON KANE, a film ridden with demonic creatures, late Elizabethan zombies, and maybe The Devil himself. Max Von Sydow, Ingmar Bergman’s main man, shows up as Solomon’s father, brilliants scenes but far too brief.

The Tomatometer at Rotten Tomatoes.com gives it a solid 65%. It only scored a 48 out of a 100 Metascore on Metacritic.com, but with a user score of 8.2 out of 10, it’s hard to ignore this lower budget gem.

The film is Rated R and the running time is 1 hour 44 minutes.

So my suggestion, get online and rent it in either HD or SD for free before the weekend is over. Then you have 14 days to figure out if it sparks your interests or maybe precaution that you might get bored one night, before it disappears from your rental list.
