Editorial Reviews

This American Indie drama follows several endearing characters as they wade through life seeking happiness, peace, and ultimately love. Will (Ronnie Kerr) leaves the Navy after many years, soon reunites old friends, and begins to start his new civilian life. His friend Rich tries to set him up with ruggedly handsome Josh (Ian Roberts) and while there is immense chemistry between the two, timing and certain ideals never seem to align. But when a shocking tragedy happens, the two are paired together to pick up the pieces and sort through the after effects. Saltwater is a story about men of all ages, finding love, losing friends, navigating their way through life, and knowing it's the journey rather then the destination that's important.

Customer Reviews

Acting was not very good and the story line was disjointed.
Barry C. Cooper
The plot is a bit formulaic and predictable, and the secondary characters - while somewhat realistic - are mostly over-the-top stereotypes.
Bob Lind
I tried to like the movie but the acting and the plot were just not there!

Will (Ronnie Kerr, who is also the writer and producer of the film) is fresh out of the Navy after a number of years, and staying temporarily with his older friend, Rich. Rich plays matchmaker, despite Will's protests, and arranges for him to meet the hunky Josh, also a former Navy man. They get off on the wrong foot, until a devastating event forces them together, and somewhat puts in perspective their need for each other.

The plot is a bit formulaic and predictable, and the secondary characters - while somewhat realistic - are mostly over-the-top stereotypes. I give the screenwriter props for including different generations of gay men as friends, and the attempt at illustrating the minefields one might encounter in trying to cultivate a relationship. Josh is played by Ian Roberts, a former Australian rugby star who created quite a stir when he came out as gay in the late 1990's. Overall, it is a good effort with capable actors, but I think it fails on several levels, in my opinion. No nudity, likely a light R for sexual references. I give it three stars out of five

'Tis a great puzzlement why the majority of gay genre films are so lame and utterly predictable, yet they continue to garner masses of four and five (!) star reviews on Amazon. Today, I have a new theory to explain this weird phenomenon. I live in a major metropolitan area where the gay men tend to be educated and well read. They also have plenty of opportunities for experiencing media exploring a vast range of GBLT images. Such people have zero patience for puerile crap like Saltwater.

Apparently, such is not the case out there in The Flyover where all the smart and motivated queers have long since fled hometown provincialism and prejudice for the infinite possibilities of life in the big city. It's the under-achieving and under-educated gay guys who find themselves hopelessly mired in the small cities and towns of the American heartland where attitudes are not nearly so liberal and open as in the major metro areas, and it's these sadsacks who are the target market for gay pulp movies--very much in the same way Harlequin Romances are blatantly marketed to women who quite possibly chose to have a baby with their sweetheart instead of completing high school or otherwise ended up indentured for life in a minimum wage job. Only people with limited educations and/or opportunities could possibly believe such lowest-common-denominator escape entertainments like gay pulp flicks or Harlequin Romances are actually good.

Yes, I am aware how elitist my theory sounds. Nonetheless, I find it morally reprehensible that cynical distributors should so shamelessly exploit an unsophisticated audience starving for images of themselves to which they might relate.

Why do so many relatively recent gay movies have to "gaymasculate" their characters? The main character in this one is supposed to be a Marine recently arrived back home and he's got to be the limpest spaghetti strand on the planet. He's supposed to be gay but he seems more like an asexual. Freaked out by any hints of gay sexuality, he gets all drippy about wanting to find the right guy, can't understand why gay men even have sex, and generally acts like something ripped his balls off while he was away. When his oh-so-queenly-stereotyped best friend (and explain that one to me, please!) commits suicide for no apparent reason, he and a gigantic hulk of man he's been feuding with since the beginning of the movie have to dispose of the guy's things. When they FINALLY get around to having sex (which of course we knew would happen from the beginning), main character goes all prissy again. They find suicide guy's big dildo and harness and main character acts like he's never seen anything remotely like them before. Big slab o'man asks him to put on the harness, which he finally does after whining and being coy for 10 agonizing minutes. And after all that the guy looks like about as sexy as Paddington Bear.

It seems to me that many gay films are trying for more mainstream acceptance by stripping away any evidence of strong sexuality or real relationships. The characters have become whining, prissy eunuchs who just want "true love" and marriage and wouldn't think of cruising or hooking up. Do we have to trade genuine passion in whatever form for this kind of "gaymasculation?" C'mon, boys, make us a movie about real gay people, not paper dolls.

An annoying and depressing movie that secretly hates its gay self.

I really did try to give it every opportunity. But when the movie mainly consisted of a year's worth of bad parties and two guys who kept missing their opportunity because of a simple disagreement a year ago, and then their best friend, the consummate host of all these horrid parties, abruptly commits suicide for no apparent reason (unless it was the parties that did it,) finally bringing the two guys together for once without having an argument. I don't know, it just felt really forced to me. I mean they went on arguing and disagreeing for a whole year, and now everything is just suppose to fall into place? Life doesn't work that way.

Still, I tried to give it a chance because I thought the two guys were... Well, not exactly cute but, sweet! They were sweet. Giganture and his bean. But then, and I know this will sound crazy, given the comment above but I thought they should have given the relationship more time to develop. I mean, when you think about it, they never did. It was just a series of bad meetings over the course of a year, during which they probably said no more than five words to each other, and it was usually the wrong thing, or the wrong time to say it. The only time they ever spent any real time together was in the beginning, at that luncheon which went sour. But you can't build a relationship on that.

I don't know. It just irked me. I guess the ending was fair on that point though. I give this a two and a half. You'll just have make up your own minds.
