Filme injustamente ignorado, é brutal em sua mensagem humanitária e traz Quaid na melhor atuação de sua carreira.

A very violent drama that takes a visceral stand against vengeance and ethnic cleansing.

Quaid's stripped-down, emotionally raw performance is a far cry from his last acting job in The Parent Trap.

Audience Reviews for Savior

I expected more from an Oliver Stone directed war story. Much more. This is ridiculously bad. The story is soul-less, and none of the characters are fleshed out enough to care about. The acting, and dialogue laughable.

Savior is a film that forces you to confront the harsh realities of the world. It doesn't play scenes for excitement or entertainment, nor does it offer an easy escape for the audience. Dennis Quaid goes through hell in this film. He loses everything he loves, and then turns into a monster. The film is about his redemption. It could be argued as to whether he is the savior, or if that label goes to the baby he is protecting. Slowly, Quaid regains his humanity, but it isn't some schmaltzy love-fest. It shows Quaid's frustration and anger as part of what makes him human. The film is very grim and hard to watch. This is mainly due to the relaxed style Predrag Antonijevic adopts. Scenes you can imagine containing slow-motion, quick cuts and powerful music, are simply shot and edited as they would happen. It's shocking to see such huge moments played out with such subtlety, but it is also the film's major strength. If you don't mind powerful yet difficult cinema, check out Savior.

"You are a good man"

Set in 1993 Bosnia, Dennis Quaid plays the character of Joshua, a man who's family was killed by Muslims. Now a mercenary for the Serbs army, he is a hard and bitter man who has nothing to lose.

The film is all about Quaid. He gives a very subtle performance, in my opinion one of his best. The director, who is a Serb himself, didn't make this film too political. In the film Serbs, Muslims, Croats are equal. There is no discussion about politics or religion. This is more a film about the cruelty of war and its effects on the civilians. This is done in an outermost effective way.

"Savior" is a very tough film to watch. Some scenes are very disturbing, heartbreaking and at times depressing. But there is hope in the movie and "Savior" deserves a look. Will have an effect on the viewers...
