Saw it today in HMV sale for about £7/£8ish.......never seen it.Is it any good.
Btw..i am a Morgan Freeman,but like a film with a story to Seven.

Going back tomorrow.....Yes or No?

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 :)

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...

Ok,thanks guys,....i cant imagine how i missed it all this time.
Woolies £4.99 eh...
As for the region coding,i guess all UK retail stores just stock r2.

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.

absolutely fantastic film, it's one of morgan freeman's best, can't praise this film highly enough... but I thought everyone had seen it:eek:


Active Member would recommend it then:p .....:D

I shall now go forthwith and purchase said product:)

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:)
