Storyline

The year is 1910. The West is dying. The American frontier is undergoing a violent transition from the ways of old to modern times, and Mexico has entered a prolonged period of bloody civil war. Reformed outlaw John Marston is on his way to capture former running buddy Bill Williamson when he comes upon a half dead snake oil merchant named West Dickens. Marston travels under a bleak and unforgiving sun, teaming up with a violent sheriff and a colorful mentally deranged grave robber and together they discover a bloody massacre of homesteaders left in the wake of Williamson. They hatch a plan to break into an abandoned fort where the Williamson Gang is holed up - and a dark, surprising twist ensues. Written by Fox Publicity

A great introduction to a great game.
7 July 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Some people were a bit disappointed after watching this half hour short from director John Hillcoat. I do not agree with them. It's necessary to understand that it's actually very difficult to craft a movie from game-play and cut-scenes taken out of a game. As Hillcoat himself stated; It's the opposite of doing film. You have to work with material that already exists, in stead of creating it. You're placing cameras and start filming. However you can't give directions to the actors cause it's all been programmed. You're just recording events and try to show what's relevant.

I thought the movie was OK and it invited me to buy the game. It is not epic but it does it's trick. It introduces us to the world of John Marston. Rockstar (the game's developer) has always been very good at telling stories and Red dead Redemption is no exception.

I hope there will be similar projects in the future. Merging movies and games might be the next big thing!
