the most moving, gripping and vivid movies of all time,
This review is from: Saviour [DVD]  (DVD)
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
