I thought this movie was the best movie I have ever seen. The whole time I was in the theater, I was thinking, "how can they make such a great movie?" I think I cried more than a lot of people I know. I mean, the movie was so awesome, the cast was so great, and everything was so touching. It's sad that I have to admit it, but this movie is my favorite.

I thought it was a very great movie. It is so good that I will not watch a movie by other director after this one. I have seen so many movies by other directors. They have really overrated their movies. But I have never seen a movie like this one. The story is good, the actors are really good, the music is good, the atmosphere is great. The scenery is really good. The actors are so great, they have done so many great movies. So please don't judge them by their movies. They are doing a really good job and should be recognized for their work. They deserve to be recognized.

It is a simple story about two prisoners who change their lives and find a friend in each other. It is the story of redemption, how people should be free from what they see in their life and that they should always be prepared for what they are going to face. It is the story of two men who love each other and work for the betterment of the whole world. This is the story of the Americans, who don't want to be independent but are still ready to accept the good that can be done by a good man in the prison. The story of the Americans in prison is the story of how they are afraid to be like Americans, because they are going to be like Americans and they are going to be loved by a lot of people, and when they are freed from prison they will be remembered. The story of the Shawshank Redemption is a very good story that is not easily made out. It is very hard to make a movie about the Shawshank Redemption and I think that it is a story that should be remembered, because it was one of the best movies of all time.

This movie is a masterpiece. The story is simple, but when the story is that simple, the film is worth watching. The acting is great, the script is perfect, and the direction is just perfect. It is a masterpiece. This movie deserves the best film award. It is so good and that is what makes it so great. This is the best movie I have ever seen. I think that it deserves to be in the top 250 movies ever made.

A must watch for anyone who is looking for a good story, good characters, good music and good film making. There is a lot of time in between the scenes but the story keeps you enthralled. It keeps you guessing the ending and makes you wondering what happens next. You will want to watch this movie over and over again. The acting is great and the story is so well written that it can keep you guessing. The characters are very well developed and they don't just pop up out of nowhere. There are enough good actors in the movie to keep you entertained. This is a must watch for any film lover. One of my favorites!

In a small Maine town, Frank Darabont's masterpiece comes to life in a single, long shot. This is not a traditional film, though. It's not a story of redemption, redemption, or redemption. It's a story of hope and survival. There are many classic scenes, including the finale, but what stands out most are the characters. There are the usual gang members, the usual bullies, the usual people you love to hate. But the most remarkable are the ones who didn't make it, or the ones who were victims. In this film, one of the most incredible things is that these people were not victims. They were heroes, and they still are. The ending is hard to describe, but I believe it's what a film should be. It leaves you with so many questions. It's hard to know how to respond, but I hope you find the answers to the questions you have about the characters in the film. If you haven't seen the film yet, I suggest you do. If you haven't seen it yet, I suggest you rent it.

Wow, I haven't laughed so much in a long time. It's so good to be alive. All I can say is that it's a fantastic movie, a real masterpiece. The only reason I'm giving it 10 stars is that I think that the director/writer should get an Oscar for this masterpiece.

It is my opinion that "The Shawshank Redemption" is the greatest movie ever made. There is not one aspect of this film that is not brilliant. All the actors in this film have created an outstanding performance, and all the characters have been brilliantly portrayed. Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman, and Tim Roth are the only actors who have the potential to create the film, and each have brought it out to perfection. The story is superb. The writing is excellent. The direction is exceptional. The cinematography is superb. The editing is excellent. The sound is superb. The special effects are excellent. The acting is outstanding. There are very few films that can say that they are better than "The Shawshank Redemption."

Not only the book is great but the movie too. So many characters, so many paths, so many scenes. All the performances are superb. This movie is about life and about the message of the film. It is about hope, about the lives of characters and about the message. I recommend this movie to everyone who has a love for the human race. This is the best movie ever made and it is the most profound movie ever made. The most profound message in the history of the world.

I am not the biggest of the Shawshank saga, but after watching it, I'm looking forward to watching it again. It's such a great film, I have never been disappointed by it. The acting is wonderful, the characters are believable and the plot is very unique. I can't wait to see it again.

This movie is, without a doubt, the best movie ever made. The acting was amazing, the story was amazing and the directing was amazing. The story and acting were so good, you don't even notice the actors. The movie had so many twists and turns that you never even knew you were watching a movie. The movie had so many characters, and you never really knew who was who, which made it really fun to watch. The movie was a brilliant story, with a lot of twists and turns. It was also so realistic, you never really got to know who the characters were. I definitely recommend this movie, it is absolutely incredible.

With so many great movies coming out, I guess it's inevitable that someone will fall short of my expectations. And I have a lot of expectations for The Shawshank Redemption. And this is the movie that will probably destroy all other movies that came out before it. It's absolutely one of the greatest movies I've ever seen. It is so well-written, so well-acted, and so well-directed that it will probably stand the test of time for generations. And you can bet that I'm going to watch it again and again and again. If you haven't seen this movie, do it! It's a must-see.

This movie was fantastic. The characters were so well done and the story line was great. I loved the movie, it is one of my favorites, and will watch it over and over. I've never read the book but it was great, I would recommend it to anyone.

Let's be honest. this movie was one of the best movies i have ever seen in my life. From the beginning of the movie, to the end of it, it had me hooked. All of the characters in the movie were well developed. This movie is a must see. It also has a very great soundtrack. This movie is also one of the best movies to be made. The acting, music, and story in this movie are the best in my opinion. Everyone should watch this movie. The best part about this movie is the ending.

I don't think anyone will be surprised when they say that "Shawshank Redemption" is the best film ever made. It's that good. I was looking for an exciting film to watch with my friends, and I couldn't find anything better. And this is a great film for all ages. I was very excited when I heard that this film was going to be in theaters. I just couldn't wait. When I went to see it, I thought I was going to watch a movie about prison life. But it wasn't. It was more about how a man deals with his life, and how he makes the best of it. It's a great story that all men can relate to. I think people should watch it a lot, because it really is a must see movie. It's about a man named Red, who has been in prison for 10 years. He has a job, but he's going to lose it soon. He's worried about losing his job, and he is struggling to cope with the new prison life he's been given. The film really does focus on how Red deals with his problems, and how he deals with his emotions. The film is great because it's so interesting, and it doesn't really have a happy ending. It really makes you think about life, and the choices you have to make in life. I think it's a great film, and I think people should watch it a lot, because it really is great.

One of the best movies I've ever seen. The storyline is amazing, the characters are amazing, the cinematography is great, and the direction is phenomenal. There are only a few movies that have made me feel as though I was there. Even if I knew nothing about the movie before watching it, it was still a beautiful experience. The music is absolutely beautiful. I think that this movie is perfect for everyone. Even if you don't like the plot, the characters, the music, or the cinematography, you'll still love the movie. I really hope that you'll give it a chance. You'll thank me later.

I don't know why people don't like this movie, its not just a prison movie its a movie about hope, about a man who is out of luck but not out of his mind. I never thought I would cry at the end of the movie. I never thought I would be moved to tears by the end of the movie. There is nothing wrong with this movie at all, it is just a good movie. I like it a lot, even if its not the best movie ever but it is good, and I can recommend it to anybody. It is definitely not one of my favorite movies but I think it is good. If you are a fan of Shawshank and Prison movies this is one of the best movies ever made. This movie is a 10 out of 10. 10/10

The first time I watched Shawshank Redemption, I was hooked from the beginning. From the first shot of the frame to the last, I was captivated. The cinematography was breathtaking. The acting was phenomenal. The plot was gripping. And there was the awesome theme song. The fact that it was based on a true story made it even better. It gave the viewer a whole new perspective of what it was like to be in Shawshank Prison. It really does set the stage for the whole movie. I have watched it over and over again. The way it is filmed, the way the actors portray their characters, the cinematography, the theme song. I can watch it over and over again and never get tired of it. This movie is a must see. I will never forget it. This is a masterpiece. 10/10.

My God! I have seen this movie twice already and I think it is one of the best movies ever made. This is a movie that can touch anyone, no matter what his/her name is. This movie is a "must see" if you haven't seen it yet! I was surprised that I enjoyed this movie more than the first one. I'm glad that they did a sequel for this movie, because I really would've been upset if they didn't. The last scene of the movie was really great and made me think about what happened after the first one. I have also read the book by Stephen King and I thought the book was really good, but this movie was really amazing. It has the same themes that the book has, but it was also so different, and so original. I also really enjoyed the acting in this movie, because they did a really good job at doing it. Morgan Freeman is the best actor of all time and that is why this movie is so amazing. It's one of the most important movies of all time because it shows that no matter what anyone says, it doesn't matter how good you are, if you can stand up for yourself, and you can get through all of your problems and problems. This is one of the best movies I have ever seen!

I think this movie is really good. If you haven't seen it you really should. It is the first one i saw that was really good. It is really good and really interesting. If you are into movies this is a must see. I also liked it because it has a really good story and it is good at it. I also like the fact that the movie is really good at it. But the reason i like this movie is because it has a really good story and it is good at it. The movie also has a really good ending that is really good and that is really good. If you don't like this movie you are missing a good movie. This movie is really good at it. So watch it, it's really good.

One of my all time favourite films, and this is why. The acting is great, the story is brilliant and the whole thing has a great atmosphere. What makes this film great is the fact that it is a realistic portrayal of the kind of life that prisoners were forced to lead. I can't wait for the DVD!
