24: Redemption
« on: January 08, 2009, 08:19:58 PM »
Because the seventh season of 24 is about to start (my Sunbird tells me: Sunday) I decided to watch the "bridge movie".


Synopsis: The following takes place between 3 pm and 5 pm. All events occur in real time. More than a year has passed since the events of the sixth day of Jack Bauer. Now he's somehwere in Africa and he hides from the grasp of the US justice department. They try  to subpoena him to a hearing because he's tortured a man.
But he can't even hide in Africa and it gets worse. A local warlord has built an army of children to putsch against the democratic government. The american embassy evacuates all american citizens and Jack tries to help an old special forces comrade to rescue a group of children.

My Opinion: The movie is not outstanding but still ok and in the typical "24" style. It's also nice to see Jack outside of L.A. even though he doesn't behave that differently. But they made a number of interesting hints that Washington hasn't changed at all and that intrigue and schemes will have their share of the seventh day.

I already have the recorder on my cable box all set for Sunday night... it will be 2 hours on Sunday night and then 2 hours on Monday night.

I never seen this movie yet... but did just get the DVD yesterday. I also ordered the 6th season dvd set (finally) So what I am considering doing is waiting for season 6 to arrive (any day now)... then rewatch season 6 followed by Redemption before starting season 7.

I hope  you don't have any more problems with your recording. :voodoo:

Maybe you better have someone tape it as a backup!

Yeah I do... my brother records 24 as well. But I am confident... this new box I got has been very good as of yet (Knock on Wood!)  :)
