1870’s America. After killing the man who murdered his entire family, John sparks the fury of Delarue, the leader of a fearsome gang. When the rest of the corrupt and cowardly townspeople refuse to back him up, John finds himself forced to solve the problem on his own. Shot in South Africa, The Salvation stars a stolid Mads Mikkelsen, who replaces the sophistication of the series Hannibal with dust from the wild west.
