RedemptionJason Statham (Killer Elite) stars in Redemption, another movie in which he gets involved with the criminal underworld.

This time, Statham plays Joey Jones, a veteran home from the Afghan war who’s homeless and using too many drugs and alcohol. Attempting to put his life back together, he gets help from Sister Cristina (Agata Buzek, In the Bedroom), a nun who works at an inner-city parish.

His soldier training makes him valuable to the Mob and he’s soon employed within London’s criminal underworld. But when his girlfriend is brutally murdered by ruthless kingpins, he goes out for revenge, even if it will destroy him.

Redemption was shown in a limited number of theaters in the U.S., grossing less than $1 million, and premiered on video-on-demand before its DVD and Blu-ray release.

Rated R, the British film was written and directed by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises) and also stars Vicky McClure (TV’s Line of Duty), Benedict Wong (Prometheus) and Ger Ryan (TV’s Raw).

The DVD and Blu-ray come with one special feature: the featurette “The Making of Redemption.”
