      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      It's all but impossible to add anything new or fresh to the traditional Western, but -- thanks in no small part to Mads Mikkelson's performance -- The Salvation comes close. Read critic reviews

        Severe and violent revenge Western that doesn't offer a lot of surprises along the way. While the daylight scenes look great and remind of classics of the genre, the cloudy twilight and night scenes are so full of CGI they look horribly fake. Still, fans of a pretty straight forward John Wick in the West kind of flick could find satisfaction here. Either way it's over sooner than you can blink.

        Did you know that there were Danish people in the old American West? Well yes, there were (and that really seems to be the main point in the proceedings here, just to say THAT), and they struggled like everyone else to forge their portion of American opportunities. Ah, but some bad guys gotta mess with them ... and so, in the tradition of Sergio Leone, let the ass-kicking begin. It's got it's moments.

        I suppose the film succeeds as a throwback to the violent anti-westerns of the late 60s and early 70s, but it does so mostly by being extremely dour. I don't necessarily mind that, but if your plot is going to be this predictable, there should be some fun involved.

        The Salvation is just another western. That's it. It looks good, it's well acted, it has all the clichés in the book,, it doesn't risk anything and looses a lot of points because of that. Maybe in the 80s this could've had some impact but now? We're already used to this gritty take on the genre far too often. A good effort since everything is polished enough but needs that extra bonus beat.
