I’m very surprised I don’t have any complaints as I couldn’t watch the series when it was on tv without falling asleep. It has the action of the previous 24 seasons but this is coming from a 24 fan that has bought every season when they came out. When I get a new season I start from the being again. Worth the buy from Amazon
In previous seasons, _24_ has had two-hour premieres (and even four hours, split between Sunday and Monday). Well, IMHO this is the two-hour premiere episode for the new season. Granted, it is not absolutely essential that you watch “24: Redemption” in order to appreciate the 24-episode Season 7—but if you’re reading this you’re almost certainly a fan of the series, and if you’re a fan you almost certainly can’t get enough of _24_. What has Jack Bauer been doing since the end of Season 6? You’ll find out when you watch “Redemption”. And if you happen to be reading this after already beginning to watch Season 7, you can still watch this TV-movie and gain an insight or two into what world events led up to Nip Tuck 1-6 complete the season’s start.The writing, directing, acting and all other important factors are typical _24_ quality, as you might expect. The two-hour format (less commercial time in the televised version, but there is also an extended version) gives the creative types a little extra freedom to flesh out the story. Personally I was a bit disappointed that this was not the big-screen “24 movie” I was hoping we’d get, but I suppose that still could happen someday.If you are a fan of _24_, either you have already seen “24: Redemption” Married with Children boxset 1-11 dvd or you want to see it. And if buy the box-sets of each season (you do, don’t you?), Nikita boxset complete 1-5 then you absolutely have to add this to your collection. Get it. You won’t regret it.
All the classic 24 action and adventure wrapped in a lush backgound and tied up nicely in under two hours.Opens with a telling intro to child soldiers in Africa that is shocking, sad and honest.Story is primarily shot in Africa as the crew decided that was the best place to get the look and feel.From the very first scene as we scan across a city, I said to myself I’m convinced this is Africa even before knowing it was shot there.The primary focus here is on Jack’s relationship with Mad Men 1-4 complete set and old friend and some African student’s at his friends school that are eventually targeted as recruits for a coup purchase Macgyver season box set army. Very good interaction and the story develops in real time.The secondary plot is the background leading into season 7, including the induction of the first female president and some information on who is supplying the money to the coup in Africa.Typical gun play and explosions and the only one getting tortured is our buddy, Bauer.Couldn’t ask for anything more.There is also a very touching extra on the issue of child soldiers worldwide provided by experts with letters read by some of the cast of 24. Some of the kids stories are truly remarkable.
Want to have background and understanding of season 7? Well then what are you waiting for, buy it! - Seriously, it is pretty good. I don’ think it was as Chuck 1-3 box set season exciting as most seasons, but it was pretty good and builds the background for season 7.
Being a huge fan of 24, the Redemption video was an purchase The Unit dvd collection excellent fix between seasons. Nice to see how everything ties together and is a great set-up fro the next season. Action not quite Friday Night Lights 1-4 set on dvd as intense as normal, but that’s OK. My favorite TV series, no exceptions.
