Following the Second Schleswig War in 1864, Jon and his brother Peter emigrate to the United States from Denmark and settle somewhere between the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains Seven years later, Jon’s wife, Marie and his 10-year-old son, Kresten, arrive After they all meet, Jon and his family board a stagecoach bound for their small residence while Peter stays behind Their coach is also boarded by recently released criminals, Paul and Lester Following a tense struggle, the criminals throw Jon out of the moving coach after which they rape and kill Jon's wife They also kill his son and the stagecoach driver and guard

With great effort, Jon catches up to the coach to find his family murdered Enraged, he kills the two convicts

Unbeknownst to Jon, Paul is the brother of Henry Delarue, a notorious gang leader and land baron Upon hearing the news, Delarue kills three innocent citizens of Black Creek, the town that reports the deaths to him He also forces the townspeople to cooperate and find his brother's killer Delarue was once an Army Colonel who fought Native Americans At one point, he is stated to have once been a good man before he became twisted by war

After burying his wife and son, Jon decides to leave the town with Peter and sells his land to Keane, Black Creek's mayor and undertaker Before they can leave, Jon and Peter are captured by the town Sheriff and minister, Mallick As Jon sits in his cell, Mallick tells him that his death will buy the town more time while he tries to inform higher authorities of Delarue's actions Meanwhile, it is revealed that Delarue is working with the Standard Atlantic Oil Company and, with the help of Mayor Keane, had been acquiring Black Creek and its surrounding land, which is rich with untapped crude oil Unknown to Mallick, the company managed to intercept his message for help and prevent it from reaching the authorities Delarue's now widowed sister-in-law Madelaine, who is mute, acts as his accountant and suffers sexual and physical abuse from him

The next morning, Jon is escorted to Delarue's base, an abandoned town, and is tied to a post and left in the sun In Black Creek, Peter breaks out of jail and kills several of Delarue's henchmen He cuts Jon free, and the pair ride off while being pursued by Delarue and his remaining men

Realizing Jon is too weak to carry on, Peter conceals him and leads the gang away, and is eventually caught and killed Taking advantage of Delarue's absence, Madelaine steals his cash and boards a train However, the train is intercepted, and she is captured Delarue tells his men to kill Madelaine after they are done raping her

Jon roams the countryside, looking for water and shelter He stumbles across a small residence belonging to Mrs Whistler, whose husband was killed by Delarue Jon takes shelter in her house to recover from his wounds while Mrs Whistler and her children flee After returning to town, he confronts and kills Mayor Keane for his deception At the general store, he arms himself and reluctantly accepts the help of Voichek, the young storekeeper whose grandmother was killed by Delarue

Jon uses diversions and guerrilla tactics to kill Delarue's henchmen one at a time Voichek is killed and inadvertently sets fire to the hotel where Madelaine is being held, enabling her to escape Delarue finds and wounds Jon Just as he is about to kill Jon, Madelaine shoots Delarue twice, and Jon finishes him with a shot to the head

On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, The Salvation has a rating of 72% rating based on 78 reviews, with an average rating of 64/10 The site's critical consensus reads, "It's all but impossible to add anything new or fresh to the traditional Western, but – thanks in no small part to Mads Mikkelson's [sic] performance – The Salvation comes close"[6] On Metacritic the film has a score of 64 out of a 100 based on 19 critics, signifying "generally favorable reviews"[7]

In The Observer, Jonathan Romney found that the film "tips its Stetson to John Ford and Sergio Leone with bold widescreen visuals – daytime shots in which even the sun looks sunbaked, prairie nightscapes resembling ink-soaked denim", but added "it never transcends reverent pastiche, down to the hackneyed sounds of Morricone-style guitars" Romney concluded, "Best reason to see The Salvation: its chief varmint, played with ornery glint and bristling whiskers by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who has the sleepy-eyed malignity of vintage western heavy Jack Elam"[8]
