Solid Ensemble Action!
30 May 2002 | by wgg-1See all my reviews

"Redemption" marks the welcomed return of three action movie icons Richard Norton, Cynthia Rothrock, and Don Wilson - in an L.A. police drama about a SWAT cop (Wilson) who strays. Wilson acts recklessly on the job, endangering his partners, and rubs rulebook cop Norton the wrong way. Wilson's cowboy attitude causes the death of a colleague.

He loses his LAPD job and resorts to the underworld and a mob boss (Chris Penn) for the income he needs to stay afloat. Inevitably Wilson's lapse into crime collides with his former life and his friends on the Force. The movie's best heroic support comes from Norton, who effectively balances his character's integrity with the jealously he harbors for Wilson's higher rank. "Cybertracker" was the last Norton- Wilson pairing, in which they played adversaries, and this picture demonstrates that a movie can always use two great screen heroes. Though the screen time shared by martial arts legends Norton, Wilson & Rothrock is brief, "Redemption" will get an extended cheer from fans.
