The Shawshank Redemption is a perfectly woven, superbly performed, and flawlessly shot cinematic masterpiece that is sure to never be forgotten. Along with Darabont's other prison outing, The Green Mile, he has crafted a pair of subtly affecting dramas with real heart. Shawshank, however takes the prize. Phenomenal stuff.

It is. How can this movie be consider one of the best movies ever made ? Well, if Avatar is, why not this one ? To see this film in the same spot where The Godfather, Taxi Driver, Blade Runner stand is a joke ! I call this movie a mellow bad ripoff of Escape from Alcatraz. The leading cast is the best thing here, but that does´nt mean that Tim Robbins isn´t mediocre. But, justice is a thing that doesn´t exist in the movies world. A Lord of the Rings film won the Oscar for best picture, Goodfellas didn´t !

Erotic prison drama at its worst. - 27/7/2012 2:42:49 PM

Okay, first things first Adam Sandler is perfect as Red. I mean you wouldn't think that skinny white man would look so much like Nelson Mandela. Meryl Streep has a heart rendering performance as Andy Du... De... Dufrne? Whatever. The film based on Stephanie Meyers twilight saga novels doesnt live up to the books, I mean where are the vampires?! where are the werewolves?! where is RPATZ?! I thought the beautiful rape scene between bender from futurama and meryl streep was quite horny but tragic at the same time. Anyway coulda been better.

An affecting and heartfelt drama, The Shawshank Redemption remains one of the greatest films of the 1990's, and a fascinating debut by director Frank Darabont. A feel-good prison movie is a rare breed, and this is just that, yet so much more... this is life affirming.

A brilliant adaptation of a great story from the master Stephen King, with incredible performances all around, The Shawshank Redemption is one of those movies that is perfect in every way and truly deserves its five stars.

'The Shawshank Redemption' is the seven-time Oscar nominated prison drama efficiently directed and written by the talented Frank Darabont. Featuring stunning cinematography from Roger Deakins and a heartfelt score from Thomas Newman, the film perfectly tells a 20 year saga in just over two hours, blending elements of crime, drama, humour and emotion within its 130 minute boundaries. It's an uplifting and satisfying drama with some amazing performances from Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman and the supporting cast, 'The Shawshank Redemption' has truly deserved its reputation as one of the most acclaimed films around, and is one that acts as a testament to the human spirit.
