A Movie Review: Shawshank Redemption


My friends know me when it comes to movies. I am into Drama (Philosophical). I usually endorse a movie to my friends. But not everybody can appreciate all movies that I recommend. Some say they're too boring but some like them. Well, we are all different. I just understand them and move on. But that doesn't mean I am angry, I am just disappointed. I have my top 5 movies and for me, they're the best among the rest until I have watched Shawshank Redemption.


Morgan Freeman(Bucket List) and Tim Robbins star in this powerful nominee for 7 Academy Awards (Including Best Picture). Based on Stephen King story. Written and Directed by Frank Darabont (Green Mile)


Morgan Freeman's narration was superbly unbelievable. I wish I also have his very deep voice. The first part of the movie showed the brutality of police inside the jail. The movie has given me full ideas how it was to be in jail. Expect a lot of tragedies in this film so before watching this film you must have to be open minded or else you'll get crazy. Many said that there was no hope in jail, but for Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) hope will always be a good thing. He became indomitable and brings change to entire prison. The cleverness of this film made sleeping hard for me. "Walang labis walang kulang sa pelikula na ito. Kung baga sa Eat All You Can sulit ang pera mo dahil nandoon ang kompletong putahe na pwede mong kainin". Most of the scenes were unexpected that remind me of "A Beautiful Mind". Too bad I just bought a VCD instead of a DVD. Maybe in jail you will experience pain and misery but as I saw this film, the characters imposed that in jail you will learn to value what we called "Brotherhood", just like it was with Andy and Red. The attack of the director (Frank Darabont) made a mark on me and because of that I will always follow his films. "Mahirap makahanap ng pelikulang ganito ngayon at para sa akin masaya ako dahil may isang pelikula na nakapag bukas sa aking tulog na kaisipan.
