Trivia

The plot was in part inspired by the real-life beaching of the container ship MSC Napoli off Branscombe Beach in Devon in 2007. At the time, the incident was widely reported in the British media as local residents descended on the beach to illegally "salvage" items such as motorbikes and trainers from the wreckage.

A solid independent effort
11 July 2010 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

SALVAGE is a solid, independent effort

Definitely worth the view for horror/suspense fans.

The film keeps the protagonists and the viewer guessing as to what is going on, which adds to the tension for all.

I would have to disagree with other reviewers, who have called the film and/or acting low-budget.

The production values and acting are well within Hollywood-type expectations.

Though not the most original story, this film keeps you interested and entertained for its entire 70+ minute running time.
