I heard people saying its the greatest movie of all time, and a life changing experiance. I thought it would be boring but repeat praise from my friends made me interested in the movie. Im thinking about renting it but is it really that good? Is it a life changing experience as many people claim.

Dude...it has Morgan Freeman in it.


That alone makes it worth watching at least once.

Yea, it's a great movie. You need to watch the whole thing, it's pretty awesome. Don't let morgan freemans voice put you to sleep though

It's a really good movie, I don't know about the whole "life changing" thing, but it is definitely worth watching.

#2 highest rated movie on IMDB after the godfather, and yes I can say from personal experience, it is amazing, but don't let us build it up for you too much, just watch it, alone in the dark with the volume up on a big screen.

is the movie the same as the book?
because if it is, that means it's a damn good movie.

It's overrated as all shit.

Pretty standard film really.
Nothing incredibly exceptional about it.
I gaurantee you you've seen probably 20 films on the same level as it.
Poor advice.

i think it has some of the most developed characters i've seen in any movie. good twist. lots of emotions and side stories.

Tom Hanks isn't in this one, you may be thinking of the Green Mile, which is also a very good movie.

Tom Hanks isn't in it, is he? Unless I missed him, it's been a couple months since I saw it. It's a brilliant film though.
