Owen Herman, UK Film Review
"The opening shots of The Redemption Act set up a mystery. An extreme act of violence committed by one enraged man on another as a woman watches on in horror poses many questions. These questions are answered surprisingly quickly as the short takes this seemingly simple set up and turns into something you really don’t see coming...
The Redemption Act leaves the viewer thinking, both about the ideas it poses, and the final destiny of the main character. The themes and ideas behind the short are intelligent and their execution is well thought through. Its engaging nature keeps the mystery alive, and it never falls down into predictability."
