    Very Very good but you can find it in woolworths for £4.99 I think and in MVC for about the same of a £ more.:)

    A fantastic movie. Don't buy the R2 however - it's a bad transfer. Get the R4 or the R1. :)

    is it any good???? surprised you managed to escape all the praise that has been heaped on this film since its release.

    its a great film and i'm sure 78887 other people would agree (from imdb.com) :)

    yeah, good enough for £8,

    don't worry, it is not as heavy a drama as the dvd case would have you think,

    it is actually a fun, interesting, nay enjoyable film...

    Channel 4 did a poll last year of the 100 greatest films - I think Shawshank Redemption came third.
    Personally I would highly recommend it, gripping from start to finish. ;)

    One of my all time favourites. It's one of those films I'd like to be able to watch for the first time again.
    If you see what I mean.

    Just finished watching it.............i'll give it 7.5/10.Not the greatest film i've ever seen,and to say its the third best film ever is a bit ott,but still a very good film.
    I think the second half of the film is definately better than the first half.

    As SG says though,not great quality,it seemed a bit dark to me,......but for £4.99 ,hey what the hell.

    Cheers guys:)
