A long way to go
22 January 2016 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

Tom (Richard Norton) and John (Don 'The Dragon' Wilson) can't decide who is the better leader, when a police squad is fighting drug dealers. The decisive moment is when Murphy (Cynthia Rothrock) is killed - John was responsible for putting her in danger, so he has to leave. He makes a new girlfriend, a high class hooker, and being out of work, the rather desperate John joins the bad guys for a 'job'. Ultimately he wants to redeem himself - as the title says, 'Redemption' is what it's all about. But that's a long way to go...

Great cast including Sam 'Flash Gordon' Jones, Chris Penn and James Russo and basically a good genre movie with not much action, but more attention to the characters. They are not simply good guys and bad guys, everyone has their shades of gray. Tom and John put their personal rivalry over the safety of the team sometimes. However, 'Redemption' doesn't manage to avoid the majority of clichés, you know: failed cop who drinks too much, hooker with a heart of gold etc, so I voted an undecided 5 of 10.
