  1. DenoResandono's rating of the film Salvador

    SALVADOR is a great movie from director Oliver Stone. Unfortunately, it always get overshadowed by his other masterpieces. There a few things - why I liked SALVADOR. This movie has an interesting topic - about a civil war in Salvador. The storytelling is easy to follow and less-provocative than his other movies. James Woods acting is everything. He should received an Academy Awards for Best Actor in this movie...

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Salvador

    Excellent morceau de cinéma d'action où la thématique politique est omniprésente dans une indirecte dénonciation de l'action extérieure des Etats-Unis...

  3. Ethan's rating of the film Salvador

    James Woods should have received the Academy Award for this film, he was nothing short of brilliant in this film. This is also Oliver Stone at the top of his form, not too preachy and not too crazy, just a happy medium for Mr. Stone that yields great results.

  4. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film Salvador

    The film that made me realize james woods could fucking ACT man.

  5. Tigrão's rating of the film Salvador

    To me, not many films have managed to capture the absolute chaos of cival war like 'Salvador' did. It's a relentless and ultraviolent ride through hell and features an outstanding performance from James Woods as both an idealist and an adrenaline-driven maverick. Stone brings his own provocative views on US foreign miltary politics and even manages to portray both sides as equally murderous. Arguably his masterpiece.

  6. Thomas's rating of the film Salvador

    Stone's best. Woods does a fine job.

  7. Sean Proud's rating of the film Salvador

    3 stars, plus one for James Woods.

  8. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Salvador

    Discreto lavoro di Stone,che racconta in modo duro la politica imperialista americana in uno dei suoi tanti aspetti che non vengono troppo risaltati dall'opinione pubblica.La prima parte non è mi è piaciuta,sembra quasi parodistica,poi sale di tono nella centrale,i momenti di panico e guerriglia sono resi molto bene e sono ottimi gli scontri dialettici con i funzionari americani,mentre il finale lacera in due.3,5*

  9. Chris Stewart's rating of the film Salvador

    Story of a man with no morals who through political hardship gained his soul. James Woods really hits the mark in this film and great writing from Oliver Stone with help from the real Richard Boyle. Great movie with great cast including Jim Belushi and Jon Savage.

  10. Dzimas's rating of the film Salvador

    I don't know when Woods' conversion to conservatism came, I assume after this movie since it was so adamantly anti-Reagan that I doubt he would have involved himself with it. But, maybe he just needed the work. Whatever the case, it is riveting to watch.

  11. comeandsee's rating of the film Salvador

    There are some tough moments, which really bring home the suffering of the civil war, and it makes some cogent points about the chasm between those on the ground, and back home. But everything considered, these moments are too few.

  12. Ghostman's rating of the film Salvador

  13. Samuel Righi's rating of the film Salvador

  14. mpho3's rating of the film Salvador

    a bit heavy-handed with a few bits of intentionally attempted comedy in the midst of tragedy, yet James Woods absolutely shines in this film. great support from Jon Savage. 3.5 stars

  15. jeffreyreeser's rating of the film Salvador

    A smart, ambitious early directorial effort from Stone. The tone is alternately somber and funny and it captures the chaos, the misery and the warmth of being in a falling in love with a foreign country falling apart. James Woods gives a mesmerizing performance as the quintessential Woods weasel. Seems to gain strength as it goes. 7.8/10 Also, props to John Savage, as usual.

  16. bknight23's rating of the film Salvador

    This film really starts losing steam towards the end, and then starts falling apart completely. It is still pretty good though.
