Ehirerapp Waste of time
Steineded How sad is this?
Matialth Good concept, poorly executed.
Borserie it is finally so absorbing because it plays like a lyrical road odyssey that’s also a detective story.

nicoseve One of my favorite movies... A beautiful and taking story, with a fabulous casting
chrisomoaghe This movie leave me feeling refreshed...i loved the dramatic depiction of hope and friendship
romanland This is my all-time favorite movie. The cinematography, the acting, the production design, it all just works for me. Starring Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins , Shawshank Redemption follows a man who is arrested for the murder of his wife and her lover, even though he didn't commit the crimes. There, he meets a fellow inmate, and they learn about the brutality of prison life. The film is a masterpiece on nearly all fronts. I can't remember a single thing I don't like about this movie. That's all I have to say. Now go watch it. Score: A+
