After losing his beautiful wife (Nastassja Kinski) and young son in a terrorist bombing, Joshua Rose (Dennis Quaid) avenges their death in a murderous rampage. To escape his crime, he joins the Foreign Legion and assumes the name of Guy. But as a mercenary for the Serbs, Guy is still possessed by his mission of vengeance until he meets Vera (Natasa Ninkovic), a young Serb girl who is pregnant with her Muslim rapist's child. Together they embark on an unforgettable journey of survival through a war-shredded world. He is her only hope for survival. She is his only chance for redemption.

5.0 out of 5 stars Losing Humanity 3 Mar 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is one of those films that is a sorely missed classic. Far superior to other war titles in recent years like Saving Private Ryan, this film puts its focus on one man who loses his humanity in an act of violence. From this, ironically, he turns to violence and goes on a journey of self-discovery that needs to be seen to be believed. It is powerful and full of strong performances. The war in Yugoslavia is as pointless as any war with the true villains existing within all of the three sides involved. Remarkable, a must-have for your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 3 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is one of the most moving films I have ever seen! It shows the rebuilding of one mans humanity. From the shooting in the mosque, showing no regard for human life to his protection for Vera and the Baby. The music is also superb, it is one of the parts of the movie that make you feel the emotion. The acting is very good and the story line superb. It illustrates what the soldiers in the former Yugoslavia must have gone through. All in all an excellent film well worth the watch, the best war film since Platoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars powerful and deeply involving 6 Mar 2003
By simon gurney HALL OF FAME
Format:DVD
Savior is an excellent piece of film making, and in itself a hard film to pin down in terms of genre, its certainly set during a war, but i would hesitate to call it a war film.
Dennis Quaid is excellent, as indeed are all the cast, the pace and story have a definite european flavour, and there are many many scenes which impose themselves on the memory, the massacre is intense and shocking, but there are many such scenes with more subtle content, the locations are perfect and add so much to the depth of the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Private Ryan is in the Shade 3 Aug 2002
Format:DVD
You do not need to see a movie about a war almost 60 years old to experience the true horror of war. Unlike Saving Private Ryan's apocalyptic opening, Savior is a much more personal film, following, instead, one man's redemption in the most horrific of circumstances (the Yugoslavian conflict).
Quaid is on fire in his performance and was criminally overlooked by the major awards, but that is what you get with such a politically hot potato.
Horrific - certainly
Heartbreaking - of course
Compelling - definitely
Savior is a film ripe for discovery. It is a war film that could stand alongside Apocalypse Now, All Quiet on the Western Front, Platoon and A Midnight Clear and not look out of place.

so much needs saying about this film, so to start i will give the jist of the story, joshua is living in paris working for the american embassy there when his wife and son are killed in a sudden bombing only moments after he leaves them to return to work, this obviously scars him deeply and he takes his vengeance in the local muslim temple, killing several innocent worshipers. he then joins the foreign legion to escape this crime and his now shattered life.
he now works as a mercenary for the serbs, heartless and cold he no longer cares for anything, when he loses his only friend he is left with next to nothing. he soon has to rescue a young woman from brutal murder while she is pregnant with the result of a tragic rape while being held prisoner, he not only saves her but delivers the child as well. this shows he still has some shred of humanity. he then sets out to try and return the two victims. failing to do so he ends up being responsible for them, and we are taken on a harrowing journey through a war torn country that is frighteningly realistic.
heart warming scenes and truly moving choices/decisions make this one of the most amazing stories i have ever seen. i love most dennis quaid films but this one truly shows what he is capable of. it is deeply moving and leaves you feeling totally amazed and upset when its over. i could not believe how wonderfully the story worked and how beautifully it was directed. truly a masterpiece

5.0 out of 5 stars Not an easy journey.....but worth the trip, 23 Feb 2011
Format:DVD
Warning ! This film is not easy on the eyes or your heart. In a wartime setting it shows all that is bad in human nature and how, sometimes we have less moral standards than any other animal. It's a story of a mercenary (Quaid) who has lost much of his humanity, somehow finds it again when he is called upon to help a young mother and her new-born baby.
Don't watch this if you are feeling down or depressed. Do watch it if you enjoy a good storyline and excellent cinema. This should have been the gateway to great role's for Quaid. Sadly that wasn't to be, but we do see what a great actor he is, given the right material. Don't miss this !

MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS: Set in the Serbian/Croatian War sometime in the early 1990's this film stars Denis Quaid who starts off as a member of the CIA working out of the US Embassy in Paris where he is about to take his son and wife on a day out for a treat-having broken the promise to do so many times before, when suddenly a colleague enters the cafe where he is sitting with his loving wife Maria Rose (Natassja Kinski) and the boy to say he is urgently needed? Another broken promise? He explains again to the child he must go and makes "another appointment".
He leaves and crosses the road and the cafe explodes into a thousand fragments leaving his two family members dead along with many others.He is in shock and has an on-the-spot breakdown resulting in him going to the nearby Mosque where he shoots and kills a dozen or more Muslims praying. A colleague manages to aid his escape, seeing the condition he is in.Quaid is next seen as a Mercenary with Stellan Skarsgaard and ventures through this film which has an extremely good screenplay,doing good and helping one person after the other against all the odds.I don't want to give-up too much of the plot or storyline, suffice to say that this is a very realistic story of the real war in Sarajevo between the Serbs and Croats and the butchery and ethnic cleansing that did and was allowed to take place.The Direction by Predrag Antonijevic is very good and acting is first-class and really convincing especially from Natasa Ninkovic as "Vera".Region 1 version is extended by 4 vital minutes.
