Rockstar Games has released a short film based on Red Dead Redemption directed by John Hillcoat (director of The Proposition and The Road). Using only in-game assets and original camera work and editing, the 30 minute short is a glimpse inside the life of partially reformed outlaw John Marston as he journeys through the vanishing American west seeking out his former brothers in arms, all in the name of justice.

A varied cast of characters and morally ambiguous situations greet John at every turn, continuously testing his resolve and commitment. Playing out against the modernizing frontier and the emergence of the federal government, John’s story takes him everywhere from the American west to south of the border in Mexico. Game Freaks 365 gave Red Dead Redemption a 9.3 out of 10.
