Written by and starring Felicia Day (The Guild), DRAGON AGE: REDEMPTION is a six-part series based on Bioware's Dragon Age video game franchise. Taking place in the same setting as Dragon Age: Origins and during the same time period as Dragon Age II, DRAGON AGE: REDEMPTION tells a story of sword, sorcery and adventure.
Tallis (Day), an Elvish assassin, gets a last chance at redemption when she is sent to capture a rogue Qunari mage who is intent on wreaking havoc in the world. Complicating her quest is a Chantry Templar, Cairn, whose goals seemingly rival her own. Along the way, through battles and subterfuge, they join forces with a murderous Reaver, Nyree, and a lovelorn Dalish Elf, Josmael, to defeat the mage's hidden plot or risk massive destruction throughout the world.

Pro: It was awesome after a couple years of watch the guild seeing Felicia in a feisty kick ass role. This whole thing looks very "do it yourself" which I'm fine with. That shows more love for the genre then anything I think television could manage.
Con: Some of the dialog is seriously lacking, not so much what is written but how it was delivered.
For me this one just missed the target. When I do buy it it'll strictly be in support of the idea, not so much the end product. You might ask why I'd buy it at all? Simple this stuff is not as easy as it seems. I have friends down in southern California who do everything from indie movie projects, to prop building, to weapons making for television. It's a lot of hard work getting your name out there for the stuff people take for granted, it's even more difficult to make your name as an actor/actress not to mention actually getting a product out. So I do encourage people to check it out. But that's all I can do.
They should sell the cover as a full sized poster, that would probably sell well.
Here's what's included:
Web series: Six Episodes (running approximately 6-8 minutes each). (1) Tallis, (2) Cairn, (3) Josmael, (4) Nyree, (5) Mercenaries, and (6) Saarebas.
Day (complete with Elf ears) plays Tallis, who is given an opportunity to reclaim her status if she hunts down a dangerous mage who has escaped from confines. On the road, she meets a variety of characters in her pursuit and soon a quartet has banded together for the final showdown. There is nothing particularly extraordinary about the plot, but it is serviceable enough and Day is amusing. It's not feature film quality, nor would I expect it to be, but considering its web origins--I think it's nicely done.
Bonus features: Here is where the disc really stands out with over 40 minutes of extra material. If you loved the web series, this might make it worth it.Read more ›
Mark of the Assassin is supposed to be intertwined with DA: Redemption, so I watched the first two episodes online. I really tried to like it because I am a fan of the series, but I had the same issues with believability. It seems to be a small budget production and the uneven acting abilities shows. The story line could use some help, too.
Seriously though, it's really hard to translate games/comic books onto film. It has been done but you need a director with vision and a budget to match.
Unless you're a huge fan, I would not spend the money on the DVD.
What a letdown. The canon is pretty much set aside, the only interesting characters take far too long to introduce. Talis could have been an interesting concept, but could not carry a DLC and this on her own merits. The world would have been better served with a short story co-written by Day and Gaider.
And let's not forget - Day obviously subscribes to the Guidelines of Whedon in this.
Streaming (on youtube), it could be worth a few minutes of your time. I would not put down money, no matter how much I adore the Dragon Age franchise.

The movie was not as great as I was lead to believe. There was too much "Story Telling script" in the movie, I guess it was low budget and they could not make the action... Read morePublished 13 days ago by Jimmy C Hall
Fair story which makes for good back story. When combined with the complimentary Dragon Age 2 download it adds to both movie short and game. And the acting is better than expected.Published 1 month ago by RavenSpeak
I watched this on youtube since I had seen some reviews of how bad it was so wasn't willing to shell out the money upfront.
Honesty, I enjoyed it. Read more
It's sort of campy and you can tell the budget wasn't huge but the story is good and it's fun to watch. If you're a big Dragon Age fan like me, pick it up.Published 5 months ago by Cirys
I liked the movie and would have given it 4 stars, but the interuptions to explain things in Dragon Age make it feel more like an advertisement than an actuall movie. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Michael Ratliff
