Synopsis


Redemption
Writer/director Steven Knight's Redemption stars Jason Statham as a British Special Forces veteran named Smith who has fallen on very hard times. He's an alcoholic homeless man huddling inside a box on a dingy London alley with a fellow homeless woman when a couple of criminals start harassing the junkies and the destitute. He reverts to his training, subdues the baddies, and makes a run for it, ending up in the home of a wealthy creative type who happens to be in New York for the next eight months. Smith movies in, cleans himself up, and gets a job as a toughman for a local Asian gangster. Haunted by horrific acts he committed while serving in Afghanistan, he spends much of the money he makes now to help fund a local soup kitchen run by Sister Cristina (Agata Buzek). When the woman he was with at the beginning of the movie turns up dead, Smith decides to hunt down the man responsible. Meanwhile, Cristina questions her own faith, confronts her haunted past, and makes Smith contemplate his own violent nature. Redemption is the feature directorial debut for Knight, who had previously scripted Eastern Promises and Dirty Pretty Things. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    As a Soldier who is evading a military court marshal, Jason Statham who is one of my favorite actors. Has gotten involved with the London underworld, eventually turns into a super hero in my mind, by exposing and taking down there crime syndicate as revenge for killing his innocent friend. This movie has drama, and all the action you need on a Friday night for family entertainment. Great great film. A must see!

    A different side of Jason Statham

    Very rarely does Mr. Statham go outside of action movies. It's his comfort zone, and it's what he's good at. However, the few times he gets to show some acting skills (such as this or The Bank Job), he nails it. Although there is some action to be had here, this is not the Jason Statham you're used to. Redemption has much more plot than his normal films, as well as characters you can emotionally get invested in.

    Jason's Worst

    This has got to be Jason's worst movie ever. And I like his movies. This one has NO replay value at all, if you can even sit through it without getting bored the first time. Maybe it was the script, but there was never any character build up. The movie just didn't evolve in my opinion. Hardly any action, which is unusual for a Statham movie. A rental or stream at best..

    This movie about a guy down and out. He is homeless and trying to protect the street like a good samaritan. At the same time he needs help. He found this guy on vacation and decided to live in the apartment and clean himself up. The character is trying to run away from his past, trying to have a better relationship with the nun lead to something good.

    Jason Statham stars in this action movie that was good but not spectacular. Would recommend, but not a have-to-run-out-to-see kind of movie. Storyline dragged for a few moments, but action scenes did redeem the movie. Overall, a good movie but not my favorite Statham movie...

    A better movie to be honest if you have an open mind before watching it. Good plot that keeps you honest and attentive. With Jason, you get martial arts and depth in the character. I got this movie because of Jason Statham. Kicks butt!!
