 Jack's Back but not entirely...yet

24 Redemption appears to be an excellent premise into Season 7 and certainly whets your appetite for the foils and exploits of Jack in the upcoming series. Somehow at under two hours it feels a little short and some fo the story is rushed. By the end you want to put the next disc in and carry on as you would with the series but for all intents and purposes the story is over.

The story is good but with the extra fifteen or so minutes to make it a two hour spectacle could have turned a good and strong subject story into an excelent captivating story and portrayl of Jack's exploits outside of the CTU world.

Some complain that the story lacks necessary parts (such as CTU) but this story isn't about that, it isn't about the Jack we have come to know that needs his Blackberry and Wireless connection. This is Jack-to-basics, Jack as the Special Forces man as we've not really had chance to see before.

For me the length is the main problem, yes you watch a program with the name "Jack Bauer" and you expect 24 delicately crafted episodes, to make it 1 hr 40-something seems to be a kick in the teeth. I know commercialised America needs twenty odd minutes of adverts but that does seem to make the experience feel rushed.

All in all you don't necessarily need to be a fan of 24 to get into this but it certainly helps and may scare off some 24-newbies. Be assured that the feeling of this does not necessarily match the feeling of a series of 24. In a series you get multiple plot twists and intense character development that they simply didn't have time to do in this TV-film.

Events occur in real time as they should so you know you're watching 24 when it starts, echoes of other Africa conflict based films are present throughout especially Blood Diamond but it doesn't feel a cheat it feels a justifiable and enjoyable installment.

Grab a beer and take a seat to watch the man's man as he should be, lost, deserted and without an ounce of technology nearby, simply a pistol, some dynamite and the ability to take some torture and still get up and run after it.

I agree with the other person. Having watched the trailer numerous times i cannot wait. Well worth buying the 2 disc edition with all the features. Not to be annoying but i thought it was on sky on the 24th.

Whilst a bit more gung-ho than 24's usual style, this should lead us nicely into series 7 (which i am really looking forward to!) :-)

 ok, but not great

I was so looking forward to this 24 tv movie as its been so long since the last season, it was good but 24 is a program that needs to be in a season not a less than 2 hur t tv movie, saying that it was great seeing jack again[dam righters strike].i am still going to get this dvd, it will take pride of place with my orther 24 dvds. Carnt wait for season 7, i have missed it so much.

 its okay, not amazing...

Seriously, i dont see the point in people posted reviews up here despite not having seen the programme or heard the album etc, its pointless. Heres my verdict:

Redemption hasnt wetted my appetite for season 7 anymore than before i saw it. Its understandable in a way seeing as its supposed to be a standalone but after so long since season 6, i was hoping for more and it seemed a bit anticlimatical in some ways. Im still looking forward to season 7, but purely because of the trailer and nothing to do with redemption.

It looks fresh in the context of 24, being set in africa, but it mimics many an action drama's set in africa. Hotel rwanda for one. The scene where jack takes on the rebel militia was great, but alot of everything else was very cliched and i predicted virtually everything that happened ages before it actually happened! Without spoiling it too much for people who havent seen it: The classic landmind/sacrifice setpiece; the idiotic member of the escapee school kids who goes back for something and ends up costing a likeable character their life; the blackmail bit at the end involving jack and tramell; the cowardly un peacekeeper; the underground hideaway that is *nearly* discovered before a loud noise distracts the rebel away; the two rebel soldier brothers and how the younger one gets owned by jack and then the older one attempts revenge but fails miserably... I could go on, but all of that i predicted would happen.

Overall its pretty average. It owes alot to many story plots on africa, military coups, child soldiers and westerners doing 'the work of god', as tramell puts it to carl benton early on. Nice to see jack back in action, but even though its new material, you cant help but think you've seen it all before...
