Editorial Reviews

Jason Statham stars as an ex-Special Forces officer who comes home from the Afghan war a shattered man. Broke, homeless, lost in a haze of drugs and booze, Joseph Smith attempts to piece his life back together with the help of Sister Christina, a nun helping the poor. But while employed as a collector for a local mob boss, Joseph learns the identity of a friend's murderer and, bent on revenge, finds himself sinking deeper into a dark world of violence in this brutally powerful action-thriller.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Statham movie. June 28, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
And a good movie on its own, too. I loved the set-up,the flow of the story was good and there were a few surprises. I was with him all the way on his journey as he fell into a good though dubious oppertunity. The sub-plots were good as well. I didn't know what would come next and liked the unexpected ending. As a movie, I give it four stars, but as a Statham movie I give it a big five stars. Saw it last night and still thinking about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Statham Shows Depth July 2, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Jason Statham gives what I would argue is his best performance to date. While he has long established his capabilities as an action star, his performance in Redemption showcases his ability to play a character with depth and dimension as well.

I found the overall movie to be extremely entertaining. Frankly, the weakest dialog and acting was during some of the action scenes IMHO. I strongly recommend giving this movie a viewing. For what it is I give it 5 stars. Cheers!

Format:Blu-ray
"I'm looking for someone, her name is Isabel. I've come to save her." Joey (Statham) is a homeless ex special forces soldier on the run from a court martial. When he stumbles on a chance to change who he is he takes it. When someone he knows comes up missing he has to walk the line between who he was and who he wants to be. Since this is a Statham movie I had an expectation going in. I was expecting another Transporter type movie, since that is basically all he does. I am a fan of his but who's gonna argue that. The first half hour made it seem like a different movie for him, then he became a driver/hit-man and I thought...here we go again. For the most part though this was a different movie and role for him and he did a pretty good job. This is nothing amazing and won't really change the way he is viewed but for once this isn't just another Transporter type movie. I liked it, but again I am a Statham fan. Overall, a different type of movie for him and worth seeing. I give it a B.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different film for the transporter July 24, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Going in to watch this film I knew nothing about it other than its star Jason s was in it. He shows great emotional range in this movie and it is not his standard action movie vehicle. It reminded me of his early roles in lock stock and snatch. I recommend it to any Jason s fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Statham Performance October 4, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The title of the film is deceptive. Jason Statham plays Joey Jones a returning Special Forces soldier who committed atrocities while stationed in Afghanistan. Living under a cardboard box on the London streets Joey salves his guilt in booze and drugs. He develops a relationship with a fellow homeless woman, Isabel, who later disappears. Joey finds refuge in an abandoned flat that is conveniently vacant while its owner is away for business in America. Cleaning himself up he is noticed by some Asian mobsters when he bounces some rowdy soccer fans from the restaurant he's working in. Joey is quickly hired as a debt collector and becomes flush with cash. It is while plying this trade that word filters to him that Isabel was working as a prostitute and killed by a vicious john which causes Joey to seek revenge. You ask yourself is this redemption or retribution? Ah, there is a twist. While on the streets Joey forges a bond with Sister Cristina (Agata Buzek), a nun who works on the streets feeding the poor. You wouldn't think there would be a connection between the two but Sister Cristina is doing penance for an incident in her past life in her native Poland. For this there is a kinetic bond between the brutish Joey and the beatific Cristina that is quite tender and beautiful. You also ask whose redemption is it, Joey or Cristina's? For those who would dismiss Statham as a lightweight, some have argued he can't act, should take note of his work here. When given material he can sink his teeth into as he has here Statham elevates his game. Statham has never had a female co-star of the caliber of Buzek and she draws out of him emotions you never thought him capable of. This film is helmed expertly by Steven Knight and grittily lensed by Chris Menges who won Academy Awards for his work on "The Killing Fields" and "The Mission". This film may disappoint a lot of Statham's core fans but those who are charting his progress as an actor this film is a revelation.

Format:Amazon Instant Video
We are witnessing some very disturbing incidents in this country at present - senseless killings by soldiers who have been mentally bruised by the combat in the seemingly endless wars in the Middle East. REDEMPTION brings an extreme example of how combat exposure can damage otherwise stable persons and if that aspect of the story could have been more explored the movie would have been better.

As it is REDEMPTION (aka HUMMINGBIRD for reasons obvious after seeing the film) is a fine Jason Statham movie as written and directed by Steven Knight who has given us Eastern Promises, Amazing Grace and Dirty Pretty Things. The film is greatly enhanced by the cinematography by Chris Menges and the original musical score by Dario Marianelli. But in the end the film belongs to Jason Statham who may possible be offering his best role to date.

Joey Jones (Jason Statham) is an alcoholic, homeless military deserter on the run from a military court martial: being caught up in the life or death circumstances and the eye for an eye philosophy of the Afghanistani war zone he fled the unbearable trauma and has been hiding his memories in alcohol, living with street people, sharing a cardboard box with fellow homeless Isabel (Victoria Bewick). His food comes from a Redemption House mission run by nun Sister Cristina (the fine Polish actress Agata Buzek) who has past secrets of her own. One night Joey is beaten severely by gang members and Isabel escapes. After this Joey flees, falls (literally) into the fancy apartment of a photographer who is on vacation and there he decides to turn his life around.

Had to force myself to get through this one. Definitely didn't hold my attention and that's saying a lot since I can find entertainment in the most mundane.
