Our Score
A good man is forced to rack up an impressive body count in this stylish, handsomely shot neo-western.The man in question is Jon (Mads Mikkelsen), a peaceful Danish settler whose wife and son are brutally murdered by a couple of drunken outlaws. However, vengeance for Jon is complicated by the fact that one of them is the brother of Delarue (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a merciless enforcer who extorts protection money from the local townspeople.The story that follows is relatively simplistic, but the villains (including former footie star Eric Cantona) are hateful enough that you can't help but root for their demise, while Mikkelsen is typically magnetic as the steely former soldier. In addition, the film contains several gripping sequences shot against striking landscapes, with the outskirts of South Africa doubling as the American frontier. The Salvation isn't just for those who love westerns, though - it's a solid revenge thriller in its own right.


A Danish settler in the Wild West is joined by his wife and son, but they are soon murdered. He avenges their deaths, but his actions attract the wrath of a ruthless gang leader. Abandoned by his friends and neighbours, the peaceful pioneer is forced to stand alone to enforce the law in his new home. Western, starring Mads Mikkelsen and Eva Green.
