Movie review for Shawshank Redemption

Ok everyone I am so sorry that this took 2 days or so to finally get up even tho I said it would take 1, but I'm here now so heres the review


The Shawshank Redemption follows the tale of a banker named Andrew "Andy" Dufresne (I'm just going to refer to him as Andy for the sake of time) is sent off to Shawshank Prison on the accusation of murdering his wife and her lover who she was having an affair with. In court he is of course accused guilty and is sent off to Shawshank Prison, where no man has ever escaped.

Once there Andy is of course a nobody upon first arrival, but along the way he meets a man who everyone refers to as "Red". Red is the man who knows how to get things but Andy asked him for something a bit unusual. A rock pick. Andy's excuse for wanting it is to carve rocks for a hobby of his. But as you see him wanting it, it's almost as if you can feel as if you are Andy and you just want just about anything to help pass the time in prison. (Crap, I forgot to mention he got 2 consecutive life sentences for the 2 murders) (sorry).

But of course in Prison Andy faces many problems, such as in the beginning he has 3 adversaries known as the "sisters" (quite silly in my opinion). But these guys were anything but silly, nearly everyday they would litterly try to rape Andy. Sometimes succeeding sometimes failing. And throughout the whole you actually want to see Andy whoop their asses. But eventually the leader of them gets his ass completely handed to him by one of the prison guards and he spent the rest of his times eating through a tube in a hospital.(I decided to skip why the guard did that favor for Andy becuase it really isn't that important to the plotline)

Sorry this is so short, I will continue the review at another time look foward to Part 2 tomorrow, and I mean tomorrow on Sunday.
