From Pure Flix Entertainment, Redeemed tastefully deals with the subject of adultery, while also providing an intense and exciting sub-plot. We enjoyed the edge-of-your-seat style of this film, the occasional twists in the plot and thrilling and fulfilling conclusion.
I was amazed at how quickly I became interested in this film. It seems to me a lot of films that I have little to know knowledge about beforehand take me a while to get into. I was surprised at how quickly I became invested in the characters, especially the main character Paul Tyson.
The story is very intriguing and it really starts off with a bang. An intense scene at the beginning involving a launching a piece of online security software really sets the tone for the movie. Tyson is the head of a software company that is working on a security program that is completely hacker-proof, which provides a few intense moments and a fascinating subplot to complement the main storyline. In addition, it also provides a subtle analogy between securing online defense and securing your marriage.
This is another film from Pure Flix, and so once again the production quality is higher and easy to watch. One gripe I would have with this film is some of the weaker acting. A few of the main characters didn’t seem entirely convincing to me, which did take away slightly from the overall appeal of the film.
Redeemed is one of those movies that deals with a very delicate subject that could be very difficult to handle. How far do you go on screen, how much do you show explicitly and how much do you imply in a more subtle form? The problem with being entirely implicit, is it takes away a lot of the severity and impact of the message. However, showing sinful and compromising situations on-screen brings an entirely different slew of problems to the table, not only increasing the age rating of your film, but also going down a darker path by showing things you may not want in your Christian movie.
This is something I worry about in every movie that deals with difficult subjects, like in this case adultery. However, I’m happy to say that Redeemed does a wonderful job of keeping the movie appropriate while simultaneously delivering the severity of the sin and situation. The concept of adultery isn’t dumbed down or treated as no big deal. It’s taken seriously, as it should be and is handled delicately and excellently on screen.
Overall, I can wholeheartedly recommend this movie, because it treats the subject carefully, makes an excellent point and is an enjoyable and inspiring film. So, if you’re looking for a Christian movie to add to your collection, I would highly recommend you check out Redeemed.
