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.

lacks in suspense all the time
28 October 2010 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Salvage do has his pro and contra's. I would like to choose in between. it takes a while before it starts (20 minutes) and due it's short time that's a bit too long. The first 20 minutes we start to know the personalities then suddenly things go from wrong to worse. A container washes ashore with some hidden secrets. The army is supposed to solve the problem but they can't do it. It's the twist in the story that makes the first 20 minutes a bit of a waist of time. Even the part were they are telling each other why they are cheating is a bit too long. Luckily, the blood is in tact and the slaughtering is sometimes brutal and even gory. A good effort to try to make a weird story but lacks sometimes of suspense.
