Atom User Reviews for The Shawshank Redemption 25th Anniversary (1994) presented by TCM
Saw it on the big screen with 5 others in attendance. Why does Fatham Events fail to advertise? If MCU can release Endgame twice in the same month to as much fanfare, Shawshank deserved the same effort.
Great film! Awesome on the big screen
This is the best movie I have ever seen!!! definitely a must see! Over and over again!
I'd never seen this film before (it was one of my Dad's favorites), and it was great seeing it on the big screen! Love Fathom Events!
My fav movie of all time. One of the best movie endings you’ll ever see.
Theatre had sound issue and missed the introductory comments by TCM. Very disappointing! Movie was great!
One of my top 10 favorite movies of all time
It was already one of my favourites, but on the big screen, with no distractions, I love it even more. A masterpiece of story telling.
We have seen this move many times. It is still a wonderful story of hope.
Best prison movie of all time!
Better than I remember it! EXCELLENT!
In the lead roles, both Robbins and Freeman are outstanding, layering their performances with snippets of individuality: Their small, daily sustenances and minor triumphs are wonderfully inspiring.
If the film is perhaps a little slow in its middle passages, maybe that is part of the idea, too, to give us a sense of the leaden passage of time, before the glory of the final redemption.
This is a movie with every facet shining in place, every word charged and resonant. [23 Sept 1994]
