    An absolute masterpiece. It will stay with you long after it has finished. Darabont optioned the story from King for a dollar!
  • You can't not love this movie.

    By TheCoolSloth
    Even though it's still rated R for a ton of language, some violence and a couple sexual references, this movie still manages to depict a grusome life in prison without going full-on disturbing and nightmare-ish, as well as pull off a deeply moving story. Morgan Freeman and TIm Robbins are excellent actors and genuinely look confused and worried in some scenes. I nearly cried at some parts and I overall thought this movie was a masterpiece. Also, do you know the F-bomb dropping guard is played by the guy who voices Mr. Krabs? Listen closely to him... yeah, there's your childhood ruined.
  • Soo good

  • Not just a movie

    Everyone will talk about how their specific hobby can be counted as art because of the time and work put into it. This is one of those cases, this is not just a movie, it’s a work of art.
  • It’s quite possibly one of the best movies ever made.

    It doesn’t matter what point you see it at, but you all know that even if it’s five minutes from Morgan Freeman walking up on the beach, you will still watch those five minutes until Morgan Freeman walks up on the beach whenever you see it on television.
  • Amazing

    This movie is out of this world incredible. Really puts life into perspective spiritually seeing the grim ideology of being stuck in prison for life.
