      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      While it certainly has more on its mind than the average Jason Statham action thriller, Redemption doesn't quite capitalize on its premise -- or on its star's strong, committed performance. Read critic reviews

        This was nut a very great movie. The stout send like one have seen several times before. There is some cool cinematography but the acting is bad.

        In one of his more recent films, Jason Statham tries out a more dramatic role. While his performance was terrific, this slow moving film leaves a lot to be desired. Joey (Jason Statham) is a war veteran who has returned to a London that is no longer his home. Falling on hard times, Joey is one of a group of homeless drug addicts, that are being terrorized by a group of thugs. While fleeing from another beating, Joey finds a seemingly abandoned, upscale apartment, and sees it as a chance to get back on his feet. The story was interesting, but it moves at a snails pace and is somewhat unbelievable. Statham pretends to be friends with the man who owns the apartment and the neighbors never question it. The film is further harmed by Joey's love interest, who just happens to be a nun. It was a very strange dynamic. Jason Statham was terrific, as a guy who was leading two lives. At one point he's this addict, trying to protect his girlfriend and at another, he's a mob enforcer, doing what he must to find and save her. The character of the nun, while performed admirably by newcomer Agata Buzek, really complicates the story. It was a semi-interesting twist, but it really takes the movie off course for extended periods of time, slowing the film to a halt. I'm a big Jason Statham fan and will watch anything he does, but if I were making recommendations on which of his film to watch, Redemption sadly wouldn't make the cut.

        "Redemption" is not completely what you'd expect from Jason Statham. A man that basically has his own brand of action films, Statham steps into a much more dramatic role as Smith, an AWOL Special Forces soldier that has taken to the streets of London, living homeless to avoid being detected. After a young homeless girl is taken into a prostitution ring and winds up dead, Smith finds himself squatting in a traveling man's apartment, taking his clothes and his nice car, and finding work as a crony for crime syndicate in London, searching for the young homeless girl's killers. Building a relationship with a faltering nun named Cristina (Agata Buzek), the girth of the dialogue comes from their back and forth as they question their's and each others' decisions in life. Still showing hints of his action background with a limited number of fight scenes, Statham sticks to a more visceral type of acting that we don't see quite enough of throughout his career. However, sticking to the basics of storytelling, "Redemption" never quite rises above being a showcase for Statham and what could have been an interesting, neon infused exploration of the London underworld falls on the shoulders of a man who never quite carries it beyond average.

        Redemption is a typical Jason Statham film where he drives a car and kills people, and there's not much of a point to anything that happens. Here Statham plays a homeless vet named Joey who's on the run, but before long he's drawn into the life of an enforcer for the Chinese mafia. Poorly titled, there's no "redemption" in the story, as Joey remains a corrupt, amoral character throughout. An inane and rote thriller, Redemption is mindless tripe.
