    In 2017 I watched this movie. I enjoyed every moment from the beginning to the end. Nowadays movies rely on effects more than stories and maybe very old movies depend on stories more. However, 90s movies have very good story and still with attractive effects. Unfortunately this movie wasn't successful in box offices, it deserves more credits.

    "The Shawshank Redemption" is a movie about time, patience and loyalty -- not sexy qualities, perhaps, but they grow on you during the subterranean progress of this story, which is about how two men serving life sentences in prison become friends and find a way to fight off despair. There is a lot of life and humor in it, and warmth in the friendship that builds up between Andy and Red. There is even excitement and suspense, although not when we expect it. But mostly the film is an allegory about holding onto a sense of personal worth, despite everything. If the film is perhaps a little slow in its middle passages, maybe that is part of the idea, too, to give us a sense of the leaden passage of time, before the glory of the final redemption.The perfect movie! Classic.

    really good movie i recommend it After opening on 33 screens with take of $727,327, the $25M film fell fast from theatres and finished with a mere $28.3M. The reasons for failure are many. Firstly, the title is a clunker. While iconic to fans today, in 1994, people knew not and cared not what a 'Shawshank' was. On the DVD, Tim Robbins laughs recounting fans congratulating him on "that 'Rickshaw' movie." Marketing-wise, the film's a nightmare, as 'prison drama' is a tough sell to women, and the story of love between two best friends doesn't spell winner to men. Worst of all, the movie is slow as molasses. As Desson Thomson writes for the Washington Post, "it wanders down subplots at every opportunity and ignores an abundance of narrative exit points before settling on its finale." But it is these same weaknesses that make the film so strong.

    i watch this movie for minimum 5-6 times first to last. so every time i enjoyed as i watching it first time. its a piece of art. and we now know how to entertain with no action or fighting scenes. its a pure drama that anyone can enjoy with family in silence. so i rate this movie 10 out of 10 because of amazing screen play, acting, casting, background scoring editing etc. this is my first movie review so pardon me if i did any mistake.

    One of the greatest movies of all time. The movie encapsulates all the values that give hope, patience and motivates us all to never give up. The characters, their performances is so unique. The musical score is by one of my all time favourite composer Thomas Newman. Timeless Masterpiece! Must have... Must Watch. . Must Share!

    The Shawshank Redemption is an adaptation of the short story, Rita Hayworth And The Shawshank Redemption from the novel Different Seasons by Stephen King.

    Now i won't bombard you with "Oh! you HAVE too see it!" or "You haven't lived yet if you haven't seen this movie!". To be honest, everything I write in this review is strictly opinionated but if I was talking to a friend who asks me what my favourite movie of all time is I would answer The Shawshank Redemption. This movie is not without fault but what makes this movie so special is that you unconsciously put them aside to witness this story unfold. I remember the first time I watched it when I was 13-14 years old. I watched it with my mother and the movie contained a lot of swearing but she didn't seem to mind them. I like to think she was so entangled in this story that she was unable to care that she had five children and a husband and to be honest, I don't mind that because...I myself could've be in the same position as her and would've probably done the same. What The Shawshank Redemption does is that if you watch it at the right time in your life, it could change how you view the world. And if you're wondering if my last remark was true, take it from a guy that actually was a victim to this wonder of a film.

    The Shawshank Redemption is a contender of the title of The Greatest Movie Of All Time. Now while I said that The Shawshank Redemption is my favourite movie of all time... I never said it was the best. That title belongs to 2001: A Space Odyssey but that's another review for another day.

    Finally, the real question is should you see it? And in my opinion, absolutely. If you have 2 hours and 40 minutes to spare go for it or if you're just really bored and want to watch something, The Shawshank Redemption will not disappoint. I remember Roger Ebert claiming that he adored the movie the second time round. Of course i'm paraphrasing but, I 100% agree with Roger Ebert's claim. This movie does get better every time you watch it. Even if you know every single line of dialogue, if you decide to re-watch it, knowing the twist and turns of it, you will forget about it instantly and relive the experience.

    As I said in the start of this review, I wasn't going to bombard you with predictable comments on how great the movie was and I think I held up my end of the bargain pretty well. Now I hope I will turn your head around and encourage you to watch this film as that is the job of the film critic. To tell you what movie is and isn't worth your time and money. And The Shawshank Redemption is the perfect example of a movie that is absolutely worth your time and money. 9/10

    I shall be short with no spoilers about the movie.

    This is a superb picture. Everything is right, spot on right. Beautiful acting, good camera work and a soundtrack that really helps the movie to that extra level. It is a slow, but not too slow, unraveling story with some nice twists and turns in it, all with a good ending.

    Do not expect much comedy and quick action, but a good story.

    My recommendation: 10 out of 10 points

    It is really amazing movie i have ever seen in my lifetime , The Shawshank Redemption is the best movie ever Morgan Freeman plays the supporting character for Tim RobbinsHe creates so much emotion to this film as the narrator and supporting character to the story line I had to re-watch this film to fully appreciate every detail. This film wastes no scene, no character. Everything works. And best of all, it's one of the most fulfilling and hopeful films you can watch
