Redemption (2020) Short Film - Movie Review (C) 2020 Dan's Movie Report - Danny Templegod


Greetings valued Dan's Movie Report and readers, across my desk today comes a short action film called Redemption. The 11 Minute blast really levels up the quality of what a short action film can be. With the film being shot in the same final fight location as Triple Threat, Redemption is virtually forced to have a higher standard. For me as a viewer, I hat to watch on my biggest TV, and I was transported into a climactic scene or opening scene of an action movie.Actor's Ron Smoorenburg and actor Neonat Wiangyangkung shine in action, with speed and timing worthy of a theater movie.

Stephen Renney serves as director, fight choreographer, and editor. Mr Renney really brought his A game and here is hope that this short film is just a taste of what is to come. The look and feel of the movie is bigger than your average short film. The final fight location is large enough to show scope but intimate enough to allow for you guessed it, amazing camera work! Niccolò De La Fere serves as cinematographer getting the angles just right, I noticed that stunt action specialist Tanja Keller serves as 1st AD and this is good as she can bounce ideas off and have a perspective.

Most importantly, Redemption represents the results of a collaborative effort, a team of skilled people looking to better their film making craft and strengthen their action prowess. Redemption is expertly shot and the music and sound boom with the undulating power of a AR-15. The musical score credit goes to composer Roman Molino Dunn from Mirrortone. Class film and so far, my top short film of the year, yeah it is that good and rates 9.5 out of 10.

The entire film is on YouTube along with a full cast and crew list @
