Review movie shawshank redemption
The plot is a bit obvious, you can definitely tell that the main character was going to get away somehow, but it doesn't matter because all the little twists, or unexpected actions make it riveting anyway.
This one is far darker and far more violent than Stand by Me and so ought to be reserved only for older teens. This film is definitely one of the best ever made.
The shawshank redemption
The film's opening scene shows him being given two life sentences for the murder of his wife and her lover, and then we move, permanently, to a point of view representing the prison population and particularly the lifer Ellis 'Red' Redding Morgan Freeman. Now I am not saying it is probably technically the best movie or whatever but to me it is a perfect film. Oh, most surely, yes, he replies; but the fire goes out of his assurances as the years march past, and there is the sense that he has been institutionalized -- that, like another old lifer who kills himself after being paroled, he can no longer really envision life on the outside. Why does he keep so much to himself? Andy's demeanor and undeniable sense of hope causes Red to take a deeper look at himself, and the world around him. Red is our surrogate. What's the story? We've been shown by Andy's example that you have to keep true to yourself, not lose hope, bide your time, set a quiet example and look for your chance. By creating the film's firm foundation, the meticulously chiseled screenplay paved the way for this film's success. Why is this important character strengths?
Red, as Freeman plays him, is therefore a crucial element in the story: His close observation of this man, down through the years, provides the way we monitor changes and track the measure of his influence on those around him.
Maybe it plays more like a spiritual experience than a movie.
He will not back down. There's a feeling in Hollywood that audiences have short attention spans and must be assaulted with fresh novelties.
But, no, that's when we first see Red.
