    I liked it but I think you have some valid criticisms. Of course, I haven't seen it in a long time, but I won't let that stop me. ;\-\)

    I don't remember Tim Robbins being particularly good, at least in some scenes. I remember the dialogue being very Stephen King, and thinking it worked better in the book than on screen. But, like I said, I'm going by 20 year old memories.


To me the best part of the movie was Morgan Freeman's character. To me the movie didn't want us to relate to Andy (bit of an oddball)...we were supposed to relate to Red.

And god the musical score for that movie is really really good. I'm curious if I would like the movie as much if it wasn't for that wonderful score.

    I'd say still very good, but a bit overrated.
