One of the greatest movies of all time! Amazing story (originally a short story by Stephen King) about 2 men who in "normal life" probably never would have met and definitely would never have been friends, who become extremely close (but NOT gay!) due to their shared horrors and joys of "prison life". The plot is incredibly intriguing, the acting and directing is truly awesome, the set (an actual prison) is an almost overpowering presence and all combine to make this a movie that you don't even want to blink while watching for fear of missing something - I can not think of another movie that I would describe that way except Children of Men.
Shawshank is a true masterpiece and while the main flow of the movie is depressing (abusive prison) the overall theme is one of friendship, hope and rising above it all. Something we all need to be reminded of from time to time, especially these days.
The blu-ray version is an improvement over the dvd but I am disappointed that the special features are identical, you think they could have added something new.
All-in-all I give this movie my absolute highest recommendation.

One of the best movies I've ever seen. Probably my favorite one. It never fails to lift me up & really makes the audience believe in hope. It's so beautifully acted & directed that somewhere along the line it makes the audience sympathize with prisoners. It's also the movie which made Morgan Freeman into a narrator in many future Hollywood movies & that in itself is a great legacy.

I am disappointed. I thought there would be a lot of scenery from Zihantango but not so. I found the story very "sleepy".

Great movie. Follows the book closely which I had just finished reading (Stephen King's 'Hope springs eternal '. Morgan Freeman a good alternate to 'Rusty'.

I really like Morgan freeman. He really shines in this one. Its a bit of a tear jerker.

What can I say? In my top 5 all-time movies. One of the best endings ever in a movie.
