Product Description

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.

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.

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.

What a film!
I first caught this brilliant movie one night when I stayed up late, and changed channels. I think I missed about the first thirty minutes or so, but I was immediately drawn in, and puzzled to see Dennis Quaid in a grimy looking film.
In truth, this film totally blew me away. It is harrowing, unrelenting and certainly does not pull many punches. The performances are great, and it is the best film Dennis Quaid has ever made. There is just something haunting about this film. I find it difficult to put my finger on quite what it is, but all I can say is this film has stayed with me even though I saw it many years ago now.
So, if you are in the market for a truly great war film, and you can take the unrelenting depression and grimness of the whole thing, then I would unreservedly recommend Saviour.

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.

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

It could have been a much stronger war drama, still it's worth watching. Full of "pietas" toward its characters, yet not holding back when it comes to show all the cruelty and inanity of people at war. Dennis Quaid's dramatic and human acting let you feel all the sympathy his characters deserves, and I quite appreciated the attempt of the movie of re-balancing the responsibilites of both the opposite fighting sides: it's the first and only movie that doesn't show just the barbarities of the Serbs, but also those of the Croatian's.

For the life of me I cannot understand why this movie has been and is still being sidelined for so long. It tells of a man's moral disintegration after his wife and child are bombed by Muslim terrorists until, fleeing to the Foreign Legion, he becomes embroiled in the Bosnia War and sinks so low as to become a child-killer. His road to redemption begins when he prevents the sadistic beating of a pregnant Muslim girl and human feelings emerge while travelling with mother and child. Grim, often horrific, the movie is not just another anti-war film but ultimately one of hope from the ruins. Quaid shines as the troubled 'hero' and after gut-wrenching sequences of events he comes to exorcise his old ghosts. Recommended.

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.
