It was a good western to the end. Lots of nudity and more violence theni expected as well. It has the look and feel of the ol "Spaghetti"Westerns shot in Spain in the 1960's. Same ol revenge plot that alwaysworked in those films works here but it has a cool and original enoughending to make it stand out. I don't think it had a huge budget but thelocations are very kool as well. The priest character is very cool andwell preformed. By far the most interesting I think. No big stars butsolid performers and cool camera work/editing/exct.. Good gun battlesand other cool effects. I don't know who many theater houses will showit but it was worth checking out if you love westerns.User: GaneyAcres
My husband and I just watched Redemption last night. I saw a big"goof". Did anyone else notice the two shots with the American flag? Ithas 50 stars on it! Last I knew from my history classes, back in thelate 1800's, the United States did not have 50 states, yet! Most of theprops, that I noticed, did seem like they were dated correctly. I hateto watch movies where the props are not dated right. Some of thelanguage was modern day. My husband really liked the realism of thismovie, and he is somewhat of a western movie buff. He enjoyed the factthat they wore their guns where they were supposed to. At least whenthe guy got hurt, he stayed hurt and limped around, not like thoseaction movies where they heal and don't feel any pain. I wish life waslike that! I loved Capt. Till's hair! Great perm! It wasn't all thatbad, I've seen worse. All in all, it was worth the $1.00 at Red Box. Iwould not pay $5.00 for it on Direct TV!User: mjonczak-1
The movie was definitely LAME. The sound track was so poor that I triedto access the Main Menu in an attempt to "add subtitles." Sorry! Nosubtitles. I should have hit the stop button and watched an old episodeof Gunsmoke.
The storyline had to be written as they were filming. I should havefollowed my instincts when I didn't understand what was happening inthe first five minutes BEFORE the title of the movie came on thescreen. But, you know when a movie starts out bad; but has aninteresting concept, you want to give it a chance? Big mistake! Ifyou're interested in "head shots," nudity and the F-bomb (5-6 times)then this is your movie. If you like a good storyline andentertainment, then you'd better look for another movie.
I would give this one star, but, I dunno, I feel sorry for the peoplewho made it.
I don't know what happened, I think somebody wanted this hot Mexicanchick and killed some people. In the meantime, there was a lot ofcanned dialog. Then the guy who wanted the chick was tortured. It wasgross, but so unrealistic I wasn't bothered by it.
This is what a movie made in Iraq would be like, I think they just gotpeople off the street who looked hungry and told them if they acted inthis movie they would feed them a big mac.
Not only is it bad content, the quality of the image is similar to aVHS home video.
All in all, just don't waste the gas driving somewhere then taking thisback with you.
This may actually be the worst one I've ever seen, and among the worstmovies I've seen in general.
Where do I even begin? The acting was horrible (can you sayoveracting?), the plot was weak and the dialog sucked. And don't evenget me started on the accents. I felt like I was watching a firstsemester community college acting class. For those who actually thoughtthis was a really good Western, I can only assume that you don't rent alot of good ones.
The only good thing I could find about this movie was the fact that itwas so terrible, it was actually funny, although I'm sure that's notwhat the director was going for.
I accidentally rented this movie in the redbox tonight. What a mistake.I will definitely be more careful next time. This movie sucked so badthat you could actually hear the air leaving the room. I've seen bettermovies made by the av club of a local high school. The only redemptionthis movie got was in the period clothing. Characters were shallow,plot was non-existent, and acting...... Was there any? After watchingthis morning, I felt like I'd been gut shot.Too bad the Apostlecouldn't have put me out of my misery like he did the star. I wish Icould meet the person that put their money up to make this crapfest. Ifthey bought into this movie, maybe they'll buy the beach front propertyI have in Kansas.User: patrick.toche
This movie must fall in the "so bad it's good category." It's a poormovie in every way: poor script, poor direction, poor photography, andgenerally poor acting -- though to be fair the main actor is doing hisbest.
This good-looking guy shows up in this God-forsaken place in search ofa Mexican girl, to take her back presumably to somewhere she'd ratherbe. She is currently a prostitute. On his way to the girl, a few guysare killed, spoof-like. Will the girl be saved? Will the guy outsmartenemies? If you really want to find out, there are two ways: eitherwatch the movie or read on...
SPOILERS BELOW: On his way to the Mexican girl, much loss of life. Oneguy's buried alive, and later shot, in an after-thought sort of way.When the guy finally finds the Mexican girl, she turns out to be thiscute, helpless teenager. He falls in love with her in a matter ofseconds, and naturally proceeds to bed her. There is an age difference.Plus she looks great and clean, while he's very rough-edged and hasn'thad a bath. Not for the faint-hearted.
Later on the guy admits to the Mexican girl that he's the one whokilled her family. She's obviously turned off (who wouldn't, especiallyafter a night of sex), but somehow inexplicably later changes her mindand is to be seen by his side as he lay dying.
I couldn't work out whether the guy had a foot (or two) hacked off by apsychopathic doctor. I couldn't be bothered to rewind and play it inslow motion. I'd rather live in this limbo where the possibility isthere and the certainty isn't.
On the whole, a movie to be watched high or not at all.
