My favourite film

I really love this film, it was a great idea and it’s well acted, a great achievement and better than Forrest Gump for sure

The story (based on a novel) is certainly very interesting about an innocent person who is sent to jail for a murder he didn't do and the escape is very funny He digs a tunnel through the wall which is covered by a poster in his cell

Coupled with a very good story is showcase performances from leads Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman, a great cast for a #1 movie

'The Shawshank Redemption' is just really amazing like 'Downfall', 'The Aviator' or 'Titanic' but better than all three of them, it truly is the best movie ever and a must-see for anyone

I can believe this to be true if it's the only film you've ever seen.

Of course whether you like something or not is subjective so I fully understand that for some people Shawshank is the best film they've ever seen; I think it's staggeringly average in most aspects and by far from the best film in it's genre.

It appears to have become the most loved film of all time according to IMDb and others which leads me to believe it has adopted this Emperor's New Clothes mythology where people dare not criticise it. Personally I loathed it and if I hadn't been on a promise would have stopped watching it after the first hour or so.

This was a while ago, I've seen a few better films since then. My favourite is now 'Memento'
