Savage Salvation 2022 Movie Review Poster Trailer Online

Surprisingly well balanced, the inclusion of the main character twice is a bit distracting, but the balance works and the backdrop doesn’t feel overly familiar.

Robert De Niro plays a small town sheriff in the upcoming crime/revenge thriller “Savage Salvation”. Peculiar title aside, the story looks to cover a lot of familiar crime movie territory. But interesting casting and some potentially good action may make this a pretty fun and gritty feature. It’s directed by Randall Emmett who’s recently been best known for producing the recent wave of direct-to-VOD Bruce Willis movies. Hopefully “Savage Salvation” has a little more to offer.

The trailer sets the story up like this: a former addict named Shelby (played by Jack Huston) is devastated when his fiancé (Willa Fitzgerald) loses her battle to get clean and dies of a heroin overdose. Furious and seeking revenge, Shelby sets out to pay back the drug dealers who supplied her. With the bodies stacking up, a sympathetic sheriff (De Niro) seeks to help Shelby before he takes things too far. Again, several familiar elements to the story, and some of the action looks a little cheap. But hopefully there’s a good enough to story to make it all worthwhile viewing.

Revenge thrillers are very common. They don’t take a lot to produce as you can often just change a few elements of the basic plot, weave in different locales and events, and ultimately put it out cheaply. This trailer does almost nothing to dissuade us of that notion with the long exception being the solid cast, which could elevate the material if they are given the right impetus.
