Shot in South Africa, but set somewhere on the lawless American frontier, "The Salvation" answers that great unasked question of how a Western might sound with a Danish accent. In putting his brand on the dusty genre, director Kristian Levring ("The King Is Alive") has abandoned all trace of his involvement with the Dogma 95 movement, delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action" (both no-nos before). Midnight-movie aficionados should approve -- as will "Hannibal" star Mads Mikkelsen's growing fanbase -- though the pic is trying to drink from a dry well where box office is concerned.
