Forrest Gump: "Life is like a box a chocolate, you never know what your going to get". A "slow" man explains to people he meets on a park bench his life story which seems to encounter historic events. This movie is wonderful and full of heart. Tom hanks is the best part of this movie and the directing and the cast all done a great job. The visual effect's were mind blowing and I love this movie from start till finish.

The two star rating is solely based on how the film hits me, which is very cyclical and repetitive. Tom Hanks' portrayal of Forrest Gump is undeniably involving and charming, but the film's plot eventually comes down to running Forrest through an increasingly ridiculous series of historical scenarios and seeing how he reacts. The film's tragic love story is its best asset and, if the film had focused exclusively on that and kept its universe a bit smaller, it could have been a lot more intriguing and inspiring. As it is, Forrest Gump still has a number of iconic lines and moments, but it's also an overrated and bloated mess, especially towards the latter half.

Truly an epic of our time. One of the greatest of all time. Tom Hank's best performance of his career.

That's all I have to say about that.

I've never met anyone like Forrest Gump in a movie before, and for that matter I've never seen a movie quite like "Forrest Gump." Any attempt to describe him will risk making the movie seem more conventional than it is, but let me try.

And yet this is not a heartwarming story about a mentally retarded man. The movie is more of a meditation on our times, as seen through the eyes of a man who lacks cynicism and takes things for exactly what they are. Watch him carefully and you will understand why some people are criticized for being "too clever by half." Forrest is clever by just exactly enough. He's a thoroughly decent man with an IQ of 75, who manages between the 1950s and the 1980s to become involved in every major event in American history. And he survives them all with only honesty...

Life is like a box of chocolates!

I love this movie and personall feel its one of Tom Hanks best films. There is so much heart in the movie and I think for the time it was very clever. The whole cast does a fantastic job and there are numerous moments which are touching throughout the movie. The way that weave the fabric of Forrest Gump's life through American history is magical. Also, it touches on the feelings and emotions of having a child with a disability, how everyone makes their own journey in life and explores the love of friends, romance and family all in one movie. Not to mention the movie has a fantastic soundtrack including awesome songs from the sixties, seventies and eighties. Definitely a nineties classic and a movie the whole family can watch. Don't miss it!

Forrest Gump

This is the perfect Drama/Comedy the balance between serious and funny is perfect. This is in my opinion Robert Zemeckis' best movie. It is just perfect.

The screenplay is incredible it is filled up with perfect jokes, a beautiful story And so many perfect lines. It is just so realistic but unrealistic at the same time. It shows us a lot about some important american moments. Like "Watergate" or even the Vietnam-war. The characters were all written and developed perfect.
The acting is so ...
