The Salvation (Denmark, 2014)
5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
The mighty Mads Mikkelsen (The Hunt, After the Wedding) 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 (shot in South Africa), and a smoldering performance by Eva Green (Perfect Sense), The Salvation is a rip-roaring, blood-spattered saga of sin and redemption. A treat for all fans of the western and its spaghetti variations and a good old-fashioned entertainment for everyone else.
