"Get busy living or get busy dying."
I have always been a fan of Morgan Freeman. This movie is another proof that he is one underrated actor. Hats-off to Tim Robbins as well for a very outstanding performance. The story has a good mesh of comedy, drama, suspense seasoned with witty lines from brilliant actors.
This is one of those Stephen-King-book-based films I consider a classic. It gives a lesson on freedom, hope and humanity. The character of Morgan Freeman, Red, said, "I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged", and the same goes with this story. It's meant to be spread around.
