Looking at Redeemer it’s like they made this movie just for me. A straightforward premise—there are bad guys, but when an ever worse guys shows up, shit gets interesting—and badass action combines into what is a movie I need to watch very soon.
Along with Scott Adkins, Tony Jaa, Michael Jai White, and a handful of others, Chilean-born Marko Zaror is one of the baddest cinematic martial artists currently working, and if you need proof, just check out this new clip from Birth.Movies.Death. This is my favorite kind of action, well choreographed, not super chopped up, and it shows tough dudes doing tough things to each other.
Here’s a quick synopsis that makes it sound even more awesome:
Former hitman Nicky Pardo (Zaror) has made a deal with God. Pardo will begin every day by holding a gun to his own head and pulling the trigger. And every day he does not die he will take it as a sign that he is meant to continue hunting down the men he used to work for.
Redeemer is currently playing in New York and Los Angeles, and is apparently available on VOD. I will be checking this out shortly. Gawk at the clip below.
