The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
The Shawshank Redemption Review
The Shawshank Redemption isn't your average movie with big explosions, gun fights, or super heroes instead its just a simple movie about a friendship that forms between two prisoners each serving a life sentence for murder. My favorite thing about the movie is all of the remember able quotes that you can take from it. Mine is a conversation between the district attorney and Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) the conversation goes like this District Attorney: "And that also is very convenient, isn't it, Mr. Dufresne"? Andy: "Since I am innocent of this crime, sir, I find it decidedly inconvenient that the gun was never found." Out of all of the amazing quotes from this movie this is my favorite because it says early in the film the this character can be funny even at his own murder trial and he can be a little sarcastic to. Another reason I really enjoyed the film was watching how the writers of the movie developed the relationship of Red (Morgan Freeman) and Andy overtime. The first time Red saw Andy he says "I didn't think much of Andy the first time I saw him", but they would develop a very strong friendship as the movie goes on. Every character in this movie is different from any other character in someway. Red is seems to be wise, nice, and doesn't ever stress out ever. Andy is clever, smart, and what seems to be a good person. Warden Norton seems to be evil, manipulative, and controlling. Something that is a bit ironic from this movie is that most the prisoners seem to nice guys while Norton and the guards seem to be the real criminals I thought it was inserting that makers of the movie decided to kind of change the ways we are used to seeing things. The thing the movie shows the best is that with time everything can change for example Andy was once just a banker until he he went to prison and meet Red which probably was the most meaningful thing he ever did in his life. Although the story may look like your same old prison movie its not it has many unexpected twist through out the whole movie. Most films you watch today just focus on action and big name actors but, this isn't one of those movies it gives real attention to the story being to told and even two friends talking in the prison yard will have you on the edge of your seat and wondering what is going to happen next. This is one of those movie you watch 5 times and still enjoyed it and catch something new you hadn't noticed before. This movie will be talked about for many many more years ahead and will never get old. The Shawshank Redemption was nominated more 7 Oscars and in my opinion has the best acting of any film I have ever seen. So if you feel like taking a break from your normal blockbuster movie and sees and movie that tells a great story of hope and friendship then I would highly recommend watching this movie.
