'Redemption' opens with the most stupid voice over. The American civil war has just ended and the unknown voice is of a man still filled with anger. He prats on about the seasons all blending into each other and it is immediately clear that this is a movie written by a low-rent, self absorbed try hard... tempted to turn it off, I persisted for longer because the cinematography was seemingly good. Sadly within a few more minutes the photography diminished into Mini-DV quality with all of the characters looking like those tacky tourist park reenactment performers... I love films about the civil war. It's a captivating moment in history which has been represented well on film over the years. I got as far as 25 minutes into Redemption before I turned it off. Herein lies the end of this review.
