Yesterday's viewing of Final Redemption was a pleasant surprise. To be honest, it was my first viewing of an 'independent film' and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The writer/director/creator was a friend of mine, Stan von Miller. This was his first movie, but you couldn't tell it. The movie's story-line was incredible. The acting was surprisingly good, considering that this was most people's first attempt. And, the editing of the movie was very professional.I have a newfound appreciation for the Austin film community. They work for much of nothing, they come together for a common good, and they bring out the best and most charitable selves in those around them.My Rating? 5 Stars!
