Redemption a.k.a Hummingbird is a decent, contemplative revenge movie starring Jason Statham. The fisticuffs, cinematography and central performances are all good. Some slack writing wears the film a bit thin, however. The 'romance' in theRedemption a.k.a Hummingbird is a decent, contemplative revenge movie starring Jason Statham. The fisticuffs, cinematography and central performances are all good. Some slack writing wears the film a bit thin, however. The 'romance' in the film makes no sense and is a terrible addition. Also, the film keeps presenting Statham's character as a 'good man' or even a 'hero'. He's not even remotely either. But Hummingbird is still a fun night's viewing. Expand

i really wanted to love this movie but it has so many shortcomings, you just dont care enough for the character, which is a pity because the story could aspire to be so much more, and then the nun? even after knowing her life story, peoplei really wanted to love this movie but it has so many shortcomings, you just dont care enough for the character, which is a pity because the story could aspire to be so much more, and then the nun? even after knowing her life story, people just don't care.

While his performance was terrific, this slow moving film leaves a lot to be desired. Joey (Jason Statham) is a war veteran who has returned to a London that is no longer his home. Falling on hard times, Joey is one of a group of homeless drug addicts, that are being terrorized by a group of thugs. While fleeing from another beating, Joey finds a seemingly abandoned, upscale apartment, and sees it as a chance to get back on his feet. The story was interesting, but it moves at a snails pace and is somewhat unbelievable. Statham pretends to be friends with the man who owns the apartment and the neighbors never question it. The film is further harmed by Joey's love interest, who just happens to be a nun. It was a very strange dynamic. Jason Statham was terrific, as a guy who was leading two lives. At one point he's this addict, trying to protect his girlfriend and at another, he's a mob enforcer, doing what he must to find and save her. The character of the nun, while performed admirably by newcomer Agata Buzek, really complicates the story. It was a semi-interesting twist, but it really takes the movie off course for extended periods of time, slowing the film to a halt. I'm a big Jason Statham fan and will watch anything he does, but if I were making recommendations on which of his film to watch, Redemption sadly wouldn't make the cut. Expand

This was a much quieter and sadder movie than I expected, given Jason Statham. There is some action, but mostly the story seems to be about trauma and healing (well, and redemption, obviously).
