Red Dead Redemption Movie Cast

Begins in 1911, where John Marston , a former outlaw, is taken from his family by the Bureau of Investigation. They state Marston will be granted amnesty if he brings the remaining members of his old gang to justice. Marston agrees and sets off to track Bill Williamson, who now runs his own gang. Marston confronts Williamson at his stronghold, Fort Mercer, only to be shot and left for dead. A local rancher, Bonnie MacFarlane, finds him wounded and takes him to her ranch for recovery. Several days later, Marston begins repaying the MacFarlanes for their help in the form of odd-jobs around the ranch. During this time he works with a U.S. Marshal, Leigh Johnson and his deputies, the dim-witted Jonah and sarcastic Eli; Nigel West Dickens , a con artist selling patent medicines; Seth Briars, a treasure hunter and grave robber who prefers the company of the dead to that of the living; and an unreliable alcoholic arms dealer known only as Irish. Marston performs various tasks and favours in exchange for help with an attack on Fort Mercer. Marston and his group breach the fort and defeat Williamson's gang only to find that Williamson had already fled to Mexico to seek help from Javier Escuella , another member of Marston's former gang.

In Mexico, Marston initially sides with Mexican Army Colonel Agustín Allende and his right-hand man Captain Vicente de Santa , to help put down a rebellion in return for Allende delivering Escuella and Williamson to him. However, Allende attempts to betray Marston, forcing him to side with the rebels. With the help of elderly gunslinger Landon Ricketts , rebel leader Abraham Reyes , and Luisa , one of Reyes' many lovers, Marston leads an assault on the El Presidio fortress, where they discover Escuella, who attempts to bargain for his life by revealing Williamson has been under Allende's protection. Marston and Reyes storm Allende's palace, where they apprehend and execute both Williamson and Allende after a short chase. Reyes takes charge of the local government and plans to advance on the capital, while Marston leaves to return to his farm.

Much to his dismay, Bureau agents Edgar Ross and Archer Fordham refuse to let Marston return to his family until Dutch van der Linde , the leader of Marston's former gang, is killed. Discovering that Dutch has been building his own gang with sympathisers from the local Indian reservation, Marston joins Ross, Fordham and a group of soldiers in an attack on Dutch's hideout. Marston chases Dutch to a cliff overlooking the river and mountains. Dutch ultimately chooses to commit suicide, backing off a cliff to his death. Moments before he dies, he warns Marston that the government will just find another "monster" to justify their pay. Marston is released from his deal with the government and returns to his family at his farm. After some time Marston is forced to repel a surprise attack on his ranch from Ross and government agents. He manages to get his family to safety but stays behind to hold back the attackers. Despite a valiant last stand he is shot multiple times by Ross and his men. He is buried by his family on the hill overlooking the ranch.

Then moves three years ahead to 1914, where Marston's son Jack stands over the graves of his parents, John and Abigail. He leaves home to search for the now-retired Ross, and eventually finds the former agent hunting on a riverbank in Mexico. The two duel, with Jack emerging the victor. The fate of John Marston's companions are later summarized: Marshal Leigh Johnson retired from Armadillo to be replaced by Jonah, and then moved as far as possible from the town; Abraham Reyes, though promising to lead Mexico into an age of freedom, was consumed by power and became a tyrant; Bonnie MacFarlane eventually married; Irish shot himself dead in an outhouse when his gun accidentally discharged; Seth Briars eventually found the treasure he was looking for and became rich; and finally, Landon Ricketts passed away quietly in his sleep.
