Critic Reviews for Salvo
A soulful romance, an existential action flick and something of a miracle movie - the appealing slow-burner "Salvo" hovers at the crossroads of genre.
Viewers looking for a shoot-em-up will be disappointed, but those hankering for an old-school Italian broodfest will find plenty to soak in.
It's not the tale, but the telling of it, that distinguishes this Sicilian drama.
Hits the heights in its first forty minutes ... Later developments prove disappointingly predictable.
Very stylish Sicilian mafia movie. One part Antonioni and one part Calvin Klein commercial.
Audience Reviews for Salvo
This review may or may not contain spoilers I would describe the film as interesting as I continued watching the movie a few days ago. The film had a good start with a good amount of dialect in the beginning and somewhere in the plot. The scenery and the setting is what I expected on the protagonist's occupation and that is what drew me in on watching this film in the first place for research. I will admit that this movie has confused me at first, but after thinking while continuing on watching the movie, I slowly began to understand on why the lack of dialect. I would say that both Salvo's and Rita's personalities best suit the film's plotline. Though, while watching the movie, I was pondering if Salvo had a bit of romance since I felt the two characters were slowly getting close near the end of the film. Of course, that is just my opinion. Although I do like action and adventure films, I do enjoy some type of drama in a film; it's what makes movies complete. Even if the movie was a bit slow. But of course, I would like to watch a little more action and hear a little more dialect.
The gangster and the inconvenient girl. Motivations are left too much to the imagination but there's some good moviemaking in play here.
