Got to be the No1 movie of all time, Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman, what actors and characters they played in the movie, absolutely awesome.

One of the great film's to watch, love the story line and some great scenes, can't wait to watch any similar movies to this, if you ever wanna watch this movie watch it all alone with no disturbance. It's a shame that they don't make movies like this anymore, brilliant movie and good quality dvd print.

One of those films that just keeps getting better
every time you see it.

Everyone should see this. Unusually for a film about two men, it's about friendship, and platonic love.

Set in Shawshank Prison, Andy and Red spend twenty years in each other's company. Based on a slight novella by Stephen King, this is one film that I think outclasses the source material.

Incarcerated for murdering his wife and her lover, Andy Dufresne struggles quietly to cope with life in prison, watched by Red, another long-term inmate. Over two decades, the men become friends.

Everything about the film is beautiful. The acting, music, Morgan Freeman's perfectly judged narration.

It's a film you watch every year and know you'll feel the full range of emotions while watching: sadness, pity, anger, hate, and life-affirming joy.

If you've not seen it yet: why not?!

The Shawshank Redemption is one of those classic films I can go back to time and again.
Quite brutal on occasions and not for the really nervous but the entertainment value of this movie is wonderful.
Apparently based on a Stephen King work and so well made into this film, keeps me on the edge of my seat much of the time and great acting by all the cast, see it and never forget it, superb and with a lovely surprise ending.

Quick delivery, DVD in as expected condition.

As for the film, it is a fantastic story that keeps you interested all the way through. It's a film that relys more on story and characters than anything else. Most definitely recommended, it is a classic film.

As the director says in one of the DVD's additional features, the film is about a man (Morgan Freeman's Red) who learns to hope. Ostensibly, it's about a quiet, stoical man (Tim Robbins' Andy Dufresne) who's wrongfully imprisoned for a double murder. Anyone who's experiencing a problem of some kind should watch this film, for it is nothing less than a manifesto of hope - an eminently quotable manifesto, no less. As Simone de Beauvoir said: 'Words have this immense privilege: you can take them with you.' You'll carry the film's beautiful words with you for the rest of your life.

A cracking film that has stood the test of time. I think it's my favourite Morgan Freeman film, and Tim Robbins is fabulous too as the lifer, Andy Dufresnes. Should be on everyone's list of must-see films.

A great film, 10/10. Very nicely packaged too. Gives a great depiction of life in jail, being incarcerated for a crime you didn't commit.

It's taken me years to finally watch this film that so many people rate as their all-time favourite film. I thoroughly enjoyed it and can see why it is such a popular film- a great storyline and fantastic acting. DVD was new, sealed and in excellent condition.
