The A.V. Club - Ignatiy Vishnevetsky
The Salvation never come across as a pastiche; the world of the spaghetti Western — that desertscape where filthy gunmen leer into frame and life is punctuated by sadism — doesn’t need winks or references to be appreciated, and Levring doesn’t offer any.
The Hollywood Reporter - Todd McCarthy
As in any classic Western, there are blunt pleasures to be had every time the tables are turned on men in black hats, as well as from direct, threat-loaded dialogue, meaningful looks, geometric arrangements of heroes and villains, and tense hunts for prey that play out both in rugged mountain settings and the tight quarters of buildings.
The Dissolve - Mike D'Angelo
It’s a welcome throwback, moving at a brisk clip and allowing its impressive cast to embody some cherished archetypes.
Village Voice - Nick Schager
Emphasizing action over the spoken word, The Salvation doesn't break new ground, yet its murderous twists of fate are consistently compelling.
CineVue - Ed Frankl
Nothing quite competes with the blistering opening scene, but The Salvation's cast of characters mean it's never less than a fun watch.

The Salvation (2014)

In 1870s America, a peaceful American settler kills his family's murderer which unleashes the fury of a notorious gang leader. His cowardly fellow townspeople then betray him, forcing him to hunt down the outlaws alone.
