About the Movie
The mighty Mads Mikkelsen unleashes a maelstrom of bloodshed in the Wild West in this white-knuckle tale of revenge. When he lays waste to the scoundrels who killed his wife and son, a Danish ex-soldier (Mikkelsen) incurs the wrath of a sadistic gang leader hell-bent on hunting him down. Exploding with eye-popping action, dazzlingly dramatic frontier landscapes, and a smoldering performance by Eva Green, The Salvation is a rip-roaring, blood-spattered saga of sin and redemption.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "The Salvation" is one of those movies that deservedly (and desperately) requires a do-over. Unfortunately, what you see is what you get.
Fresh: Mikkelsen's icy stare, and a strong finale, make the film worth a go.
Fresh: The Salvation is severe and bloody stuff.
Fresh: A film reminiscent of a song that sounds familiar but offers its own pleasures.
oooooooohhhhhh aaaaaahhhhhhhhh CANTONA!!
Hannibal’s Bloodline ?
This movie is a western in the true tradition of westerns, there are no surprises here. The plot is completely transparent, you know exactly what terrible thing is going to happen next but you can’t stop watching. Mads, Eva and Jeffery are perfect in their respective roles. Mads delivered a nuanced and well delivered performance with little dialogue but he says it all with his cold stare and expressions. Eva has no dialogue at all yet she manages to captivate you every minute she is on screen. Jeffery has the most dialogue in the movie and what he didn’t say didn’t need to be said! This movie is dark and horrible at times and it delivers raw emotion and final satisfaction thru vengeance. If you’re an action junkie this movie isn’t for you. However if you want that rush that only vengeance can bring this movie is for you…
Lots of folks with dead coldfish eyes in this one
It looks good, sounds good and this Mads guy great as a some poor schmuck mindin' his own business and gets done real bad wrong. It's all dead serious: no jokes or splattery gore. Someone does get stabbed in the eye with a bowie knife so +1 star for that. And the chick without a tongue is hot. Kissin' a chick like that would be weird, but still hot.
