Review - The Salvation

TheSalvation2014Poster.jpgThe Salvation is a 2014 Danish film, directed by Kristian Levring, the film boasts an very impressive cast including; Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green, Jefferey Dean Morgan and Jonathan Pryce.

The film is set in 1870s America, it focuses on Jon (Mikkelsen) a peaceful Danish settler,who after getting revenge on his family's murderers, which infuriates the local gang leader, Delarue (Morgan) who in turn wants revenge on Jon. 
The story isn't the most complex, actually it is rather simple but it is a very enjoyable ride. There are a few very exciting action scenes throughout the film but the real focus is on this man, Jon, who has lost everything and how he copes with that.

Review - Furious 7

Furious 7 is the seventh in the Fast and Furious franchise, and unfortunately the last starring Paul Walker, who died tragically in a car crash in 2013. The film is directed by newcomer to the franchise, James Wan, who is taking over from Justin Lin, who directed 3-6 and ultimately made Fast and Furious the franchise it is today, by making it all about cool set pieces and car chases. The film has a wonderfully diverse cast, including, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris and newcomers to the series, Kurt Russell and Jason Statham.
