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. However, if I was asked about the films that I would name among the best, I would almost immediately recall “The Shawshank Redemption”—a film proving that when a person has willpower, a dream, and persistence, nothing is impossible for them.
The film was released in 1994; it was directed by Frank Darabont, who is now one of my favorite directors (his “Green Mile” is great). The main roles were played by Morgan Freeman (whose character, Ellis “Red” Redding, in this picture, is a kind of secondary character, but as crucial to the plot as the main one) and Tim Robbins. It is necessary to mention that the film has been created according to the novel by Stephen King named “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption”; for me, almost all movies made after King’s books are amazing (except, perhaps, “The Shining,” which is remarkable, in my opinion, only due to the performance of Jack Nicholson).

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
