THE SAL­VA­TION

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS FILM - TB

Di­rected by Kris­tian Levring. Star­ring Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green, Jef­frey Dean Mor­gan, Eric Can­tona, Jonathan Pryce Levring’s old-fash­ioned re­venge west­ern stars Mikkelsen as a Dan­ish set­tler along the 1870s fron­tier. When his wife and son are bru­tally mur­dered on a stage­coach, the for­mer sol­dier takes swift ac­tion against the per­pe­tra­tors, one of whom turns out to the brother of the dis­trict’s res­i­dent psy­chopath (Mor­gan). If any­thing, The Sal­va­tion sits a lit­tle too eas­ily within the oeu­vre, of­fer­ing lit­tle that we haven’t seen be­fore and of­ten. Still, th­ese days any oater is bet­ter than none. 15A cert, lim re­lease, 92 min
