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.

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?

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.

One of the comments said that I shouldn't expect a masterpiece by watching this movie.
Well well, turns out I actually got a masterpiece. Amazing movie, we can debate all night whether or not it deserves to be ranked so high, but at the end of the day it's still a beautiful masterpiece.

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.
