I recommend watching 24: Redemption with Netflix. Netflix allows you to watch thousands of movies and shows right on your computer as well as on DVD and Blu-ray. The best part is that Netflix is currently offering a 2 week free trial, so you can rent 24: Redemption for free through the service.
If there was one series that viewers were most disappointed to miss for an entire year due to the Writers Guild of America strike, it had to be 24. Previously named 24: Exile, the newest movie, titled Redemption, aims to tie together where the sixth season left off and what’s going on presently. The movie will officially premiere on November 23, and it’ll be released in a director’s cut extended version on DVD two days later.
In Redemption, Jack Bauer finds himself caught in the midst of a military coup in the fictional country of Sangala. According to Fox’s mains tie for Redemption ( where you can view the entire trailer for the upcoming movie), Jack has pretty much lost everything he ever cared for, and has left the country he’s fought so hard to protect in order to find piece with himself. During his work as a missionary in Africa, Jack is called to fight again a war lord trying to draft children into his own militia forces (I’d probably laugh at the story line if there weren’t actual cases of this in reality). All the while, the story also takes place on Inauguration day for the next U.S. President, who happens to be Allison Taylor. It’s also expected that he’ll get caught up in his own past along the way, and that an “impossible decision” will raise the stakes for Season Seven.
I’m curious to see just how much farther the stakes can be raised after previous seasons, but I’m sure we’re up for more heart-pounding action and adrenaline rushed suspenseful scenarios along the way. Co-Executive producer Manny Coto did give us some insight into what to expect, saying that “Jack is a soul in turmoil and has been moving place to place to find somewhere he can be at piece, but he winds up in Africa in the middle of a military coup.” Jack is also subpoenaed to appear before the Senate, but needless to say isn’t to keen about returning stateside.
What’s also interesting is that with the radical shift in location, it also brings in a whole new set of cast members. We’ll still see some familiar faces (and of course where would we be without Jack Bauer?), but ultimately expect to see a lot of new blood on the show (no pun intended!). I don’t know about you, but I’m excited to check out the upcoming season, especially with it being shot on location in South Africa.
