In this first clip from director Steven Knight’s “Redemption” (I personally liked the original title “Hummingbird” better, it was so much more ‘what the hell does that mean?’, or even the other title, “Crazy Joe”, which was just crazy enough to be cool), Jason Statham plays a chef who beats up people. Hopefully this is AFTER he has fed them, cause going to a restaurant and getting beat up before you’ve had your dinner would just really suck.
Knight is making his feature film directorial debut on the movie after writing “Eastern Promises” and “Dirty Pretty Things”. It looks like such a generic Jason Statham action movie, but I guess that’s not a bad thing if generic Jason Statham action movie is your speed.
Homeless and on the run from a military court martial, a damaged ex-special forces soldier navigating London’s criminal underworld seizes an opportunity to assume another man’s identity — transforming into an avenging angel in the process.
Starring Jason Statham, Vicky McClure, Benedict Wong, David Bradley, and Siobhan Hewlett.
