    Forrest Gump tells the story of Forrest, an unintelligent American guy who has had an extraordinary life. From a technical standpoint, this movie is a masterpiece. The storytelling is genius, the characters are well developed, the visual effects hold up today, Silvestri's score is lovely and the cinematography and lightning are beautiful. However, I don't like how everything in this movie is so over-the-top and stupid. I'm glad that the 00's ditched the cheesy and over-the-top elements that many '80's…

    Hanks is truly wonderful in the title role. The film doesn't quite hold up to his outstanding performance though. Worth watching just for Hanks.

    Sigh. I get no pleasure from this, but this movie really irritated me. If it weren’t for Tom Hanks, this would be absolutely insufferable. Hanks refuses to make fun of the character, even refuses to sanctify him, which the movie seems hell-bent on doing. There’s zero subtlety in the scripting, in the camera work, in anything except Hanks’ performance. A lot of great actors are wasted, especially Gary Sinise, turning in a workmanlike performance that the movie doesn’t deserve. What…

    Its one of my favorites. Despite the sweeping sentiment and the rampant nostalgia; I love it.

    There's absolutely very little I can say about Forrest Gump that hasn't already been said. It's Forrest Gump. Forrest Gump is easily a movie I could watch over and over again on any day of the week and never feel emotionally drained after watching it. The film never becomes too sappy to the point where only one viewing is enough. It's one of those films where even though I know I am going to cry at some moments, I don't…

    Jenny may end up with aids at the end but I ended up with diabetes because of how sickly sweet and maudlin Forrest Gump was.

    If the film was more clever and less ham fisted I would enjoy this kind of modern mythology but as it stands I can't really stand it. I don't think it intended to be a horrifying regressive and sometimes racist morality tale but that's what the final product came out as. Jenny just gets everything…

    this was a big disappointment! i never was a great fan of Tom Hanks (apart from his 80's roles), but this one ? no not convincing enough and a little bit ridiculous - i just didn't take this one serious!

    FORREST GUMP – O CONTADOR DE HISTÓRIAS

    É difícil identificar em um filme de qualidade aquelas características que o condicionarão ao status de clássico, porém "Forrest Gump - O Contador de Histórias" é um exemplo inquestionável de filme que gravou o seu nome na história do cinema e se tornara clássico, sobrevivendo ao passar dos anos e até mesmo a própria evolução do cinema. Dirigido por Robert Zemeckis, o filme é a fábula fantástica de um homem que tinha todos…

    It's great.

    I would elaborate on that comment but I don't want to say anything bad about it because I feel like I'm going to get crucified even though not a lot of people (if anyone) read my ''reviews''. And, I don't want to say anything good about it because people would say I didn't praise it enough. Yeah, it's that kinda movie.
