The Salvation


Jon (Mads Mikkelsen), who emigrated to America after fighting in a Danish war in 1864, is finally reunited with his wife and sonā€¦ but then evil men cause a tragedy. A Western written and directed by Danes whose ambition seems to have been creating a stylish genre exercise, but perhaps it would have been a more interesting film if they had tried to add something different? Still, itā€™s an engaging, handsome thriller that takes advantage of well-worn traditional themes with a convincing Mikkelsen as the ex-soldier who finds reason to use his skills again. Jeffrey Dean Morgan is effective as a villain in the classic sense.Ā 

2014-Denmark-Britain-South Africa. 92 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Kristian Levring. Screenplay: Anders Thomas Jensen, Kristian Levring. Cast: Mads Mikkelsen (Jon), Eva Green (Madelaine), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Delarue), Eric Cantona, Mikael Persbrandt, Douglas Henshallā€¦ Jonathan Pryce.
