Definitely a very good movie, though I don't think it should be ranked as the best of all time by IMDb. Because of the nature of the IMDb's consensus voting I think it gets to the top because it's the most difficult movie to dislike, rather than one which might be better, but contain challenging elements which might cause some people to rate it lower. I don't want to sound too down on this film though because I do like it. It puts across its themes of hope and redemption well, it's got a great script, and great acting across the board. Some of the plot seems a little forced at times, but the movie does a very good job of allowing the viewer to sympathesis with Andy Dufresne and root for him to succeed.

Really good movie. But not necessarily the best movie ever. Watch it, but don't expect a masterpiece.

It is a very solid movie. Does it deserve to be as high on as many lists as it is, of course not. But I guess the draw of this movie is that it is high art that just about everyone can relate to. That is hard to do. So in that way, this movie is quite an accomplishment.

I thought this movie is so overrated but the script was really good. The only reason why I called this overrated because top 10 of all time??? NO, just no.

I remember my brother saying one of our teachers believed Andy to be guilty, hence the "redemption" part. Is there actually evidence to back this up?

How was it decided that this middlebrow, slightly above average drama was the Best Movie Ever Made??

If IMDb allowed users to rate every kind of food, the highest rated meal in history would be a hotdog with a little bit of mustard on it.

I wouldn't call it the absolute greatest film ever, but it's up there. I'd say it's the most inspiring film ever though.

One of those movies that are genuinely good, and not just a cluster fuck of confusing stuff, automatically giving it cult status.
