Although the film was shot entirely in Montreal, Quebec, in one of the final scenes, as Manuel has entered the Metro, and it is leaving the station, the map seen inside the train is, in fact, a map of the central Washington, D.C. area. See more »
While some have commented that Morgan Freeman's voice changes dramatically throughout the film, it is a major plot point that he is living a lie, living under an assumed identity and not particularly good at it.
It is related to the theme of doing good, even though you may not be particularly good at it, nor be able to continue doing it for very long. It sounds unnatural for Morgan because it is unnatural for his character. See more »
You know, you could get lucky. God might decide to grade you on the curve.
It wouldn't matter either way.
You don't know what the hell you talking about, do you? Why be afraid of a God that you don't believe in? Oh, I know, it seems like people are making up shit so they can feel good about all the pain, all the cruelty, loss, violence, suffering, death. Famine, bigotry, small-mindedness, repression, depression, oppression. Want me to keep talking? 'Cause I can go on forever with this shit.

It is definitely one of the best American movies, I saw during last year. I was watching it with eyes wide open. What a masterpiece, I was thinking. Let's check the review on IMDb. Surprisingly, I realized that average vote is only 6,5. Astonishing. Why so underrated? To European, too sad, no special effects, to slow? Sorry, not every movie should look like 'Dark Knight'. Some moves are made for people, who like to think and to feel. Main idea of this movie is inevitable truth. There is no redemption for conscience. One cannot turn back time. One will regret one's sins forever. Perfect Billy Bob Thornton, good Morgan Freeman, touching Holly Hunter. Even Kirsten Dunst (who is not my favorite actress) is reliable.
