This is one of my favorite films. I have watched it many times and never get tired of it, Although it is a long film the story is gripping and doesn't get boring as some long films do. It also has a fantastic ending which hints are made about though the film. I would advise anyone to add it to their dvd collection
The Best Film I Have Ever Seen!
The film is about a banker, Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins), who is framed for the murder of his wife and her lover. He is sent to Shawshank prison for life where he befriends Red (Morgan Freeman). He gains the respect of the inmates and guards, but his intelligence is taken advantage of by the warden. Andy manages to escape and takes his revenge. Released in 1994 it earned seven Oscar nominations in 1995 and was voted third best film ever made. Every time I watch it I see something else new. Despite its age it is one of those films that will be watched for many more years. I don’t know anyone who can say they don’t like this film!
One of the best films i have ever seen, a must see.
Great storyline, cast and set. I have seen this film over and over again on video but thought it was high time to invest in a DVD copy.
One of those films that appear on TV on a regular basis. I do not buy CD but as I possibly saw the start the middle and the end I bought this to see the lot. I was not disapointed a classic one film I shall watch again and again. A touch of everything in one story great stuff
This is possibly one of the best films i have ever seen!! I dont know how people could give it a low rating!
