Absolutely one of the best films ever produced.
It just goes to show what you can achieve if you want to lead a full life - nothing will stop you. A wonderful film.
three words: BEST MOVIE EVER!!!
This is the best film ever made. Number one on all counts
Superb film. So much that I want to buy it
One of the best all time cult classics, that should be in your top five movie pics of all time. Superb acting and gritty storyline, with excellent subplots and feel good ending.
a must see for those who always wondered
Sentimental and patronising.
A wonderfully produced movie. Incredible story balanced with brilliant acting and wonderful cinematography.
One of the greatest films of our time - it blew me away when I watched it in the cinema at the age of 14 and it still captivates me now - a true classic
Without doubt one of the best movies you will see. Brilliant!
One of the classic "Must see" movies of all time
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. You have to seriously hook onto the plot to get the actual feel of the movie and you'll love it.
Well emoted by all the actors and very bold storyline... Jus love it !!
I like it very much - very good 4 to 5 starts
Simple review... My favourite movie of all time, it's a cracker.
What a brilliant movie! It is so good, that I had to read the 'blurb' to check if it was a real story or not ! Stephen King - excellent story teller, this movie of his book...
Many twists and turns, all fit in like a glove, and a very believable ending.
Acting was very realistic. I cant fault anything of this movie
Although originally panned by cinema-goers, I have always found this film particularly well made and highly enjoyable. Great to see Morgan Freeman (although it may only be in a supporting role) and Tim Robbins provide emotional depth to a colourful yet simple plotline. I highly recommend this to all.
I can't believe it took me this long to watch The Shawshank Redemption - I thought it would be long, miserable and depressing but it wasn't - the two hours flew by with a great message of hope and perseverance. Five star performances, five star script, five star movie.
FANTASTIC movie - would be one of the best if not the best movies we have ever watched. Although quite a long movie went quite quickly. Incredible that the movie was pretty much entirely based in a prison.
I can't believe I've put off watching this film for years as I thought it would be too depressing and heavy. It is, however, an uplifting story of hope and justice and I absolutely loved it! Definitely one of the best dramas I've ever seen with an extraordinarily good cast and brilliant direction. I will be buying a copy for my own collection.
The acting is brillant. Morgan Freeman is the best around. Tim Robbins almost keeps up with him.
A must see film!
Exelent movie well worth watching
great movie one that i would watch over and over
One of the best movies I have ever seen. I haven't seen a person in last 14 years who didn't like this movie. Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman at their best.
Definitely 5 star.
Not usually a fan of Stephen King [didn't like The Green Mile], but this movie was simply superb; superb acting, a wonderful script, and a fantastic exploration of hope.
one of the greatest films ever made.
captivating and moving. ranked #2 all time on imdb.
One of the best movies of all time - terrific story, wonderful acting and an exceptional ending
excellent movie that would appeal to a wide audience. Great performance by lead actor.
More to it than expected. Good story, good acting. Suss hollywood ending but I guess that's Ok.
The best film ever made - and goodness knows I am not one to judge films kindly. It is my all-time favourite and has every right to be: the truly brilliant acting, characterisation, plot development, heartstopping twists and deeply emotional story will leave you astounded. There never was a more perfect piece of cinema. 10 out of 5.
Best movie ever made!
Nothing has yet to beat my top favourite. Although many have come close... Remember the Titans, Forrest Gump, Face Off to name a few.
The ending was a bit soft, but hope is what drives us all.
Best Prison movie I've ever seen!
This would have to be up there with the all time greats, just brilliant
What can you say about this classic movie. Brilliant cast Robbins and Freeman. Brilliant storyline from Stephen King. Brilliant movie all round. A must see if you haven't experienced this slice of Brilliance.
First class story,script,acting and cinematography. Some critics feel that the themes and characters are too sentimental and stereotyped, but this leads you to develop an empathy with the main characters rarely achieved in a film.
right up there with my all time favourites. Enjoy!
This movie is a forgotten classic. Dealing with the tribulations, tennacity and hopes of people in hopless situation.While there is life there is HOPE!! Must see!!!
One of my all time favourite movies.
If you liked The Green Mile, don't go past this nifty Triller/drama! Its an absolute MUST SEE, full of drama, violence, social commentary, and complex relationships. Its fantastic from the start and only gets more involved and better from there. I was glue to my seat in this mind blowing movie. It will make you laugh, think and even cry, what else could you ask for in a movie!
Although we have viewed this movie previously, it was a good reminder of people's tenacity in holding onto principles without reliquishing any good thoughts towards others.
it's fine line between heart strings tugging and trite manipulative mush... but,
shawshank succeeds where so many other mainstream hollywood blockbusters
fail, sure it is a bit mushy in some bits but a strong cast and good pacing
makes this winner (compare this with the truly awful and plodding green mile
by the same director), one that's worth checking out again if you haven't seen
it in a while, it'll make ya feel good!
Without doubt the best movie I have seen. Even my late father who hated movies for having to sit for 2+ hrs was engrossed!! Dont miss it!!
Few movies can be this good. Morgan Freeman, you rule, and your narration voice rules even more!
This is the third time in six months I have veiwed this fabulous movie. What more can I say, except that it's a movie I will always come back to. If you haven't seen it, then do yourself a favor ASAP.
I have to hand this movie five stars because I have watched it 3 times in the last 6 months and I enjoyed it every time.
BEST MOVIE EVER U BETA WATCH THIS MOVIE
