Reviewing A Movie Or An Event (Assignment): Forrest Gump (Movie Review Sample)


The instruction is the review anything. It could either be a movie, tv show, a restaurant etc, but I'm choosing a movie or a tv show to review.

If I was asked about my favorite film, I would think for a rather long time about the answer. There are many well-rounded films that I enjoy, so choosing the best of them would be a complicated task.

The movie was released in 1994: screenplay by Eric Roth and directed by Robert Zemeckis who has become the best movie director. Some of his credits include "Who Framed Rodger Rabbit and Back To The Future movies. Forrest Gump narrates a story of a man who had an IQ of 75 but managed to achieve much in his life. Despite being born with a low IQ, he managed to live between the 50s and 80s to be involved in the American history. He achieved all this because of his honesty and niceness.
Despite the story being inspirational, it is not a heartwarming one especially to mentally challenged people, but this is limiting for Forrest. The film stars Tom Hanks with an IQ of below average but can be involved in the American history. In the modern times, the movie is more of meditation when viewed from th
