Movie Info

In Mario Van Peeble's new film Redemption Road, two seemingly different men (Michael Clarke Duncan, Morgan Simpson) embark on a music-steeped journey through the American South, learning along the way that life isn't about where you end up - it's how you get there that matters. Somewhere along the 900 miles between Austin, TX and Huntsville, AL the two men become unlikely friends. However, every road has an end. In Huntsville, sad truths come to light, with heartbreak and violence lingering in their wake, ultimately leaving both men changed forever. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Redemption Road

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

A lightly enjoyable road pic about a circuitous road to redemption, Black, White and Blues offers simple, down-home pleasures while spinning an undeniably familiar but emotionally satisfying tale.

Top Critic

a sterilized and predictable version of life that plays out like a very special movie of the week -- albeit one with a nice soundtrack.

Hope and healing wait at the end of a big-hearted musical road trip.

'Brother knew how to tell a story,' Michael Clarke Duncan says, admiringly, of Shakespeare. The same can't exactly be said of this earnest calling-card indie.

Jefferson has nowhere to go but up -- and eventually he gets there (note the title) -- but, boy, does the getting there take its sweet time.

Audience Reviews for Redemption Road

Sappy, too-heavy and poorly written... Some of the plot "twists" don't make any sense. It boasts of having good music, but it's full of your basic bar blues - in other words, nothing special. If it doesn't bore you to sleep first, this movie will confuse the hell out of you.
