Overview

The Shawshank Redemption is the second movie in the prequel trilogy, after "Before Midnight." It is a story about a man who was sent to jail for a crime he did not commit. He now finds himself in a prison in the north woods, along with several other men that were sent there the same way. The group takes on a mission of helping each other escape and searching for a man called Red.

To start with the plot of the movie, it has been many years since a man named Red is imprisoned in a prison. This is because he has spent the rest of his life going back and forth between the north woods and society. With the help of his best friend, he and the others that were sent to prison are able to break out of their prison once more.

Each of the inmates in the prison have an individual reason for why they were sent there, although the main reason was to be able to fight in the war between the United States and the Canadian colonies. They all agree that this would be a chance to earn money, which the Canadians were willing to provide.

When the time comes for the prison break to take place, the inmates do not want to go into battle alone. So the plan is to take advantage of the fact that the Canadians are in the middle of winter and also to confuse them by disguising themselves as members of a regular society. With the help of the prison warden, the entire mission is a success.

The theme of The Shawshank Redemption can be found throughout the movie. A man who is sent to prison is often punished for something that he did not do, and so he will spend the rest of his life trying to atone for the mistake. He starts as a selfish person, but as the movie progresses, the character begins to change, and it is not always the best man for the job.

Many critics gave the movie an extremely low rating, primarily due to the multiple killer scenes that were shown. In the movie, one of the two main characters is fatally shot by another character. This gave the viewers a sadistic feeling that this would probably be the outcome for him.

Although this movie does not hold up as well as other films in the series, it is still considered a very good movie. Overall, the first two movies, "The Mist"Before Midnight", are some of the best movies in the entire series. And now, they are not even in the same series!
