Format:DVD
"I am the anointed servant of God and I tell you to be silent!" Deadhead turned born-again-Christian Carl (Kinnear) is friends with the pastor of his local mega-church Dan Day (Brosnan) and is invited to accompany him to scientist Dr. Paul Blaylock's (Harris) house for a discussion. When a terrible accident happens Carl finds himself fingered in the incident and does everything he can to prove he is innocent. Things aren't always easy though. Having never seen a preview for this I was excited for this based off the cast alone. While I will say this is a good movie and a very dark comedy I was a little disappointed. The main flaw this had was that the movie had a good idea but had only ten minutes of it. There was a lot of repeating going on and a few scenes that seemed like they were only put in to increase the running time. I have to say that Brosnan and Kinnear played very similar parts to the ones they played in "The Matador" (which is a better movie) but it seems to fit them. It may sound like I'm bashing this movie. I don't mean to if that's how it comes off. I did enjoy it and laughed a few times but based off the cast I was a little disappointed (but after movies like "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and "Son Of No One" I need to stop thinking just because the cast is great means the movie will be great.) Overall, a decent dark comedy that is worth watching but tone down your expectations. I give it a B-.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satirical broad strokes get at something important. September 20, 2012
Format:DVD
Watching Salvation Boulevard, I realized that satire was never going to be the funniest form of comedy. Ever since Swift penned A Modest Proposal, whatever laughs there are in these dark artistic works have been nervous and mixed with horror and revulsion.

So it is with "Salvation Boulevard," not the darkest comedy I've ever seen, but plenty dark, disturbing, and sometimes violent. But in the service of deflating piety, hypocrisy, and egomania, the atmosphere feels entirely appropriate.

The movie starts with a debate between Pastor Dan Day (Pierce Brosnan) and atheist Peter Blaylock (Ed Harris). Having watched similar debates between various clerics and religious apologists and the likes Richard Dawkins and the late, great Christopher Hitchens, the script and direction gets the tone mostly right and mines the hubris and false confidence (of both parties) for laughs. The scene also serves to introduce us to most of the key characters, including Carl Vanderveer (Greg Kinnear), a former Deadhead who has had a radical conversion to an evangelical form of Christianity and married a seemingly holy woman, who has a saner-than-she-should be teen daughter.

Not nearly as broad as "Saved!"--a satire in a similar vein--"Boulevard" deals with Pastor Dan accidentally shooting atheist Blaylock (which rather than killing him, puts him in a coma) and trying to pin the shooting on Carl. Because all of this happens within the opening minutes of the movie, no spoiler alert was called for, but from that point on the surprises begin to stack up and to say more would be to rob the reader of those moments of shock and humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars The comedy is irreverent and right on the money February 14, 2014
By Jill
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
We had so much fun watching this movie. I love seeing Jim Gaffigan. The comedy does have a dark side in that it's truly scary how religion can make people rationalize murder and that constant underscores the entire plot.

Flew under the radar but it is going to be a cult favorite. With actors like Pierce Broslin, Ed Harris and Marisa Tomei how can you go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great movie. October 29, 2013
Format:DVD
I thought this movie was very good and very true to real life. The beginning was a bit slow, I admit, but then you begin to see what religion can do to people. My father always said stay away from the very religious people because they are evil. I know that this is just a movie, but as I said before, very true to real life.
