So, I'm looking at this page showing Paradox's films: http://www.paradox-e...ertainment.html

Notice anything? Look at their track record. Of the three films they've completed, I've seen only one: Conan. And, we all know how that turned out. Epic, amazing film it is not.

The Mutant Chronicles? Rotten Tomatoes says 19% of critics and 27% of the audience liked the film. Not good. Netflix has it rated as 2 stars, which means "Didn't Like It" on their scale.

Solomon Kane is a bit of a surprise in that 87% of the critics liked it, but only 47% of the audience liked it. Hmm....

They don't really seem like they know what they're doing when it comes to making films.

I've got little hope for anything else that comes out of Paradox, whether it be a Conan sequel or the Kull movie.

Hmm, so Paradox bought the U.S. distribution rights to Solomon Kane? 'Cause this is the first time I've seen Kane connected to Paradox Entertainment.

Sometimes critics are idiots though, I liked Mutant Chronicals tbh, it had Ron Perlman in it and for a small budget looked well. Priest reminded me abit of it too. Worth a watch.

I thought Sl Kane was another company too?

I've seen Mutant Chronicals a few times. If you check the it shows up on cable now and again.
While not the best post apoc film, it does contain plenty of action and excitement. I'd recommend it as something to watch on a slow weekend.
