Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Without a single riot scene or horrific effect, it tells a slow, gentle story of camaraderie and growth, with an ending that abruptly finds poetic justice in what has come before.
Fresh: It's the no-bull performances that hold back the flood of banalities.
Fresh: Freeman, who is simply a great actor, a man who has never struck a false note in his career, both narrates this tale and anchors it with his authoritative playing.
Fresh: A testament to the human spirit...

This movie was very important to me
This movie is perhaps one of the best movies of our time. When I saw it, I was going through a rough time in my life. Now, whenever I'm going through a difficult time or about to embark on something new, I turn to this movie. If you want to see a movie that can truly have an impact on your life, this is the one. Everyone should see this movie, no matter who you are or where you are in your life.
The Greatest Movie Ever Made.
It is the greatest movie that ever made,may be after 1000 years,it is still the best.It keeps me thinking about the true meaning of life,and it is so inspiring.May be there won't be a great movie like this one in decades.
