Fantastic movie! Well acted, well plotted, well filmed. Such a beauty to watch over and over.
No love intrest, no car chase, no big battle, no great views of the country, but the best tale you will ever find on film, a wonderful story with things that will chill and warm you. This has only one problem, you can only see it the first time once
This is my favorite movie of all time. Stephen King's best.
The Godfather is my second, though. So I understand the choice.
This movie is perfect! I have watched this so many times, and I never get tired of it! I am endlessly recommending it to all of my friends! The acting, story and visuals are all perfect and stunning! The movie will make you laugh, cry and make you wear a stupid little grin at the sheer inspiration that this movie has to offer! So many life messages and andy dufresne has to be one of the most legendary characters in any movie ever created! THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION!
I hadn't watched this movie and I've seen many movies, from the godfather to the Lord of the Rings trilogy, star wars, you name it, I just watched it, I couldn't stop watching it. I was never so emotionally attatched into a movie in my life. Before this, my favorite movie was Gladiator(right below this one and The Godfather) but those movies have their not so amazing parts, this entire movie was perfect..
Andy Dufresne is an iconic movie character; He is smart, sneaky and intellectual. The Shawshank Redemption is a legendary film which although was a flop at the Box Office, was a major success with the critics and some are even dubbing it "The Greatest Movie of All Time"
Character development and storytelling defined. Freeman and Robbins draw you into their world so much that you want to stay there almost as much as you want them to escape. They call the experience of not being able to change the channel or get off the couch "Shawshanked" for a reason :)
may i say this is greatest movie of all time not your favorite most of the movies on this list are poor with poor actice, poor effects, poor story line etc...
top 5: the shankshaw redemption
: the godfather
: to kill a mocking bird
: lawrence of Arabia
: the dark knight
The godfather is so overrated it's not even funny, that's one of the most boring movies I've ever seen. But this movie had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish, a true masterpiece, and an ending that will make you cry like a baby.
The compleat movie, down to the detail where the geology pick Andy used to dig through the wall was filed in the bible under Exodus. The subtle inference of the passage of time in a timeless place. Totally rivetting from first to last and the best moie ever made
plot, screenplay, acting, cinematography-everything is extraordinary... I can never forget the view of the Pacific followed by the comment "I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams"... will love to watch it again & again...
Excellent movie, the story, the cast and everything was just perfect. Acting from all the actors was superb. People can watch it again and again. Its such a charm to watch it.. It highlight the life of people in prison and also gives very good message.
Awesome movie. It had absolutely everything - Beautiful soundtrack, amazing acting, a story I will never forget and the best, most unique and unpredictable ending in the history of movies. This is and will always be the best movie I've ever seen.
Great inspirational movie. When I'm down and out this movie always leaves me in a better place mentally. I always thought it was a shame it came out the same year as Forest Gump. I think time has let all know which was the better film.
I love this movie! Most of these top 10 I also love, but this is my favourite. It's just so beautiful :3 Personally I don't like the Godfather that much, but I really think that this should be higher than 5th. Such an epic movie
It should be at least top 2 in my opinion. Well made masterpiece.
Best acting screenplay direction and STORY.
Red: [narrating] Andy Dufresne - who crawled through a river of s*** and came out clean on the other side.
Far and away the best movie ever. It has the best storyline ever and also the best narration of any movie ever. Gladiator for me is the second best for its story and cast. And how Forrest Gump is ahead of these is beyond me.
Have no idea why this isn't #1. This movie has everything it is just perfect you never knew what was going to happen it kept you hooked the entire time and it has the best tale of all time. Also has the best narrating of all time and the best quotes of all time.
I have it on vhs. I have it on dvd. I have it on bluray. When it comes on tv, I watch it. I have watched this movie hundreds of times, and it never gets old. IMDB rates it the best movie of all time, and I would have to agree.
My favorite movie together with The Untuchables. I think its good acting, and a great story! I love to watch it... I think I have already watched it five or six times, but you never get tired of it. GREAT MOVIE EVER!
When I finished watchin this movie... I just ended up crying! Tears of happiness! Its such a beautiful film... Tim robbins and morgan freeman have acted superbly! I think its better than Forrest Gump..
It's a Good movie, of my rating it's obviously get 9.8. Don't miss to watch this movie if you not. Something is Awaiting for you, if you not. R U? Last of all There is Always hope. "Hope never ends"
Such a great film, the acting is amazing, as is the story, it is entertaining and I love the message it gives about hope. A purely inspirational film that everyone must see before they die.
I was speechless after watching this movie. I had no words... What an awesome performance by the actors. I have no words to say it was a fantastic movie, a must watch. So do watch it.
I can't imagine a better movie... There are great movies, there are Legendary movies, There are movies like The Godfather, Forrest Gump, The Dark Knight, Pulp Fiction then there is The Shawshank Redemption...
