Forrest Gump Review: “Forrest Gump” is one of those movies that permeate very deeply and aroused all kinds of feelings. Has moments of comedy and moments of drama, shares the depth and maturity with the naturalness and innocence, exudes optimism and pessimism. The story is extremely touching and narrates the adventures over a lifetime, a big kid, a person who never lost his innocence, who fought to achieve their dreams, which always tried to take the right path and that many branded as having few lights, when the opposite is true.
Tom Hanks’s interpretation is simply brilliant and very well surrounded also by the cast of actors and actresses chosen by Robert Zemeckis. The script is very original and brilliance and intelligence, beyond doubt and as for the soundtrack, radiates beauty and masterfully used throughout the film. In short, “Forrest Gump” is a gem of cinema, one of those movies that never fall into oblivion and to which, you can laugh and mourn, and that is very special
Already become a classic of the 90’s and perhaps a classic of all time, “Forrest Gump” is a story I wonder, thrills, fun for all audiences. It tells the story of America through a poor retarded called “Forrest” that is involved in the great events that have occurred in the U.S., with a realistic look at the Vietnam War and more fantastic as for example the birth of large companies (like Apple). There are immortalized phrases such as “run Forrest, run!” or “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get ..” make this film a masterpiece of cinema of all time.
