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 Pity It's Not Live Action
4 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

I have absolutely no experience of the computer game this short film is based upon . I might have seen the occasional television advert but that's all my personal experience of RED DEAD REDEMPTION is confined to . I did go out of my way to watch it simply because the director is John Hillcoat whose work I've always been impressed with . GHOSTS OF THE CIVIL DEAD is a contender for best prison movie ever made and definitely the most depressing . THE PROPOSITION is a different and unusual take on the Western . THE ROAD was disgracefully overlooked at the big award ceremonies in the categories of cinematography and Viggo Mortensen's performance . LAWLESS was a disappointment and showed signs of a Hollywood studio interfering in commercial need . In short Hillcoat is an undervalued director whose films revolve around mood and the misanthropic nature of Mankind and I was interested in what he could do with a CG short film

Perhaps I should have bought the game or at the very least read up on what RED DEAD REDEMPTION is all about . I can understand the basic idea behind it of a former criminal turned bounty hunter riding in to town and looking for a former associate who is now a wanted man . The problem is the story becomes diverted by little episodic things like bandits carrying out a massacre or other things that give the impression they might become important later on if you buy the game such as the bounty hunter coming across a woman of faith in the desert which gives everything a disjointed nature from a narrative view point . There's also the problem that when things look good on paper and at a story board level such as a shoot out you find yourself wishing this had taken place as live action rather than CG . As it stands put me down as one of the other people on this page slightly disappointed at what we were given here
