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.




  • Great old-school western

    By Otherjonstewart
    Some of the effects and filmmaking is odd, but it’s a good Western revenge film.

    By Antsy1957
    totally predictable bad copy of a western story plot. No salvation from it.
  • A modern western classic

    By CannesUDigIt
    Looks amazing - with subtle homages to everything from Sergio Leone to Red River to the Searchers - I love the immigrant Danish soldiers looking to make a life in the New World and the opening stagecoach scene is as good a scene in any western film. Loved it - love Mads - perhaps the most underrated actor working today (and anything with Eva Green is worth a look).
  • Great western

    By Mr Dahu
    Great western movie agree that the story is very predictable but even though you know what will happen you get stuck to it and enjoy every minute. Great actors, great atmosphere and picture. Really enjoyed it
  • Wonderful performances:.............

    Mads is always my favorite in any movie or tv he does, he always brings the right kind of accepts to his roles and that is why his has been one of my favorite actors for so long and still is
  • A refreshing western

    By AppleFan1715
    Mars Mikkelsen never disappoints but Eric Cantona and Eva Green both stood out strongly in this interesting Western. While as predictable as any other Western, the movie was really enjoyable and I actually had wished it was about 20-30 minutes longer.

  • Gritty, dark, repulsive, sad… just like history

    By AMJ33
    As painful as the violence is, or all the terrible things you know are coming… I think this is a very well done movie. There is no charm, no humor, just total revenge plot that I think was executed extremely well. I seriously think this is how life was in the wild west. If you are a fan of the series Deadwood and Hell on Wheels this falls along the same vein… but expect no laughs or jokes to balance the bitterness.
  • Who is paying for these reviews?

    By Buynoj
    Another movie with false revies. Not worth it.
