The Salvation

Since there wasn't much to do in the Old West, it seems like there's always a tale of revenge to be told. And that's just what we get with The Salvation, a story that follows a Danish ex-soldier (Mads Mikkelsen) who takes down the men who killed his wife and son. But then the revenge table is turned when one of the dead men's brother (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) wants his own vengeance. And just in case seeing Mikkelsen in the west isn't enough to tickle your fancy, Eva Green is also in the film, who seems to be the wife of Morgan's deceased brother. This doesn't look like uncharted territory, but it doesn't look bad either. Watch!

Here's the US trailer for Kristian Levring's The Salvation from IFC Films:

You can still watch the previous Cannes trailer for The Salvation right here.

The Salvation is directed by Danish filmmaker Kristian Levring who co-wrote the script with Anders Thomas Jensen, both making their English-language feature film debut. In 1870s America, a peaceful American settler and former Danish soldier (Mads Mikkelsen of Casino Royale) kills his family's murderer which unleashes the fury of a notorious gang leader (Jeffrey Dean Morgan of Watchmen), hellbent on hunting him down for the death of his brother. Eva Green (300: Rise of an Empire) also stars in the film which premiered at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and hits VOD and limited theaters on February 27th.

Love Mads, Dislike Eva, woman cant act, makes up for it by showing her tits in every movie, not to mention the 5 head. Also cliche and boring is how I would label this film based off the trailer.

Comment sections are typically filled with opinions, I do not need to qualify my statements for your benefit. I love westerns, And I think the lead in this will be very strong, but the story, is cliche, thats not an opinion, its a fact. Hero kills brother of local bad guy, then must save the town/girl from said bad guy, while learning to live/love/laugh again. That is a very common trope in westerns. Now am I saying this will be a bad movie? No, I am saying it is cliche and the trailer makes it look boring. 3:10 to Yuma Is a bit boring, still a pretty darn good western.

I really hope this has a scene where he turns around in slow motion during driving rain.

Eva Green always deserves some attention. Luckily, Mads is here too, so there will be also something serious to see ...

Huh, I've already seen this movie. I thought it already came out. Did I just go back in time or something? Overall, it was a good movie and I enjoyed it.

I agree... Saw this maybe 6 months ago and liked it a lot minus the long conversations in Dutch (I did not have subtitles available). But there were some great scenes. And Mads is a great actor all around.

I was completely bored by this film but will give it a watch because of the cast. I'd like to give a shoutout to my future ex-wife Eva Green, she's always looking oh so pretty.

The generic trailer music kind of killed the momentum of the trailer. It cheapens it, which is sad because there are some really impressive shots and style moments in the trailer.
