I went to this movie premiere back in the day. I am a fan of revenge movies and I recall they were comparing Savage to an Irish Taxi Driver.
Man, was I disappointed.
This movie is nothing but the trip of a selfish and deranged man to his final consummation. Savage lacks what good revenge movies make them what they are: a certain logic behind the avenger actions, some sense of justice and the ability of the vengeful character to put his/her life at extreme risk without losing his/her mind in the process.
Savage is the story of a man traumatised by an attack and how he loses it when trying to get revenge on his attackers... on anybody! This movie presents us with a character without true focus, a person who anybody with a passion for justice is unable to respect. A spoiled child with a tantrum.
And let's not forget the humour put into the movie. A drama, really? The goofy stuff here and there just does it for the final touch of mimicking good cinematography.
This is to Taxi Driver what a schizophrenic is to logical thinking.
