Comments on: "Forrest Gump (movie)" (8)

  1. Forrest Gump is one of the most inspiring movies I have ever watched. It tells the story of Forrest Gump, a man who is not very smart and has a few difficulties in his life. But they never ever stop him. The movie starts with him as a child and continues until he is old. It’s a funny movie at times but it has so many morals to it about what life is really about and if you have a good attitude everything can work out. I really love Forrest because he is so persistent and never lets anyone push him down. But at the same time he protects his friends and is always there for them. he befriends pretty much everyone in the movie. He works hard but also just does what he wants. I wouldn’t really change anything in this movie except maybe not to make it so sad at times. But then again the sad parts still give you a feel good feeling at the end. So overall its a happy, sad, lifting, inspiring movie that just makes you feel good about life. I would recommend this movie to 10+ and rate it a 9/10.


  2. Forrest Gump (played by actor Tom Hanks) is a heart-warming and sensational film which follows the life of Tom Hanks’ character Forrest Gump through the ups and down of life. As he sits on a park bench, he recounts his entire life from childhood to present day, sharing his deepest thoughts and moments of life, with complete strangers.
    Critics were at first divided on the film, but this movie only grew in popularity as it explores countless enriching and vital themes within society. It runs the gaunt for humour and charm to tragedy and heartbreak, although a lengthy film of 2 and a half hours the characters and story line never lose sight of the initial themes and love story which runs through the entire film (between Forrest and Jenny) .The Rock and roll stage, Civil rights movements / protests, Vietnam war and Water gate are just some of the historical moments and figures represented through the lifetime of Forrest who is at the centre of the narrative. This film is “Like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get.” I have seen this film countless times and every time it gets better. I cannot fault anything, it touches on countless parts of history, the importance of friendship, family and the power of love. I highly recommend this movie.


  3. Forest Gump, by far the funniest movie I have ever seen. I can assure anyone who watches it with cry with laughter. The movie is filmed in a way that makes it really easy to understand and we learn so much about forest Gumps life. There are so many different exciting events that occur, many good some bad, but you are always left on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next. It is a feel good movie and tells a great story of how anyone can change their life if they put enough determination into it.

    Forrest Gump is a fantastic movie with the moral of the movie saying, it doesn’t matter who you are, you can make a change. It is about when Forest Gump was born he had trouble walking as a child, but when he got older he managed to run! It is a very inspiring movie and I loved it so much. It is a bit of a long movie and some parts are a bit boring but otherwise it is fabulous movie to watch with the family. I would rate this movie a 9/10!!!!!!!


  5. I loved this film. So much happens and there are happy moments and sad moments. My favourite character would have to be Forrest Gump as he brings so much to the film. It is quite long but worth it as there are no boring parts. I would recommend this to anyone as it appeals to all ages.


  6. Forrest Gump is an all-time classic and definitely a movie everybody needs to have seen. It’s full of life messages which really makes the movie one to not forget. One of my favorite scenes is when Elvis is staying at Forrest’s house and he shows him the leg dance move. I think it’s great they’ve incorporated famous people into the movie. My favourite quote from the movie is “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.” I think it’s the best lesson out of the movie. I recommended to all ages as it’s a classic must watch.

    I think the moral of the story is that it doesn’t matter who you are, you can make a change.
    Forest Gump had trouble walking as a child, but when he got older he managed to run!
    This inspired me. people with a disability shouldn’t be bullied. It amazed me how Forest was able to ignore the bullies, and try not to let them affect him.
    I suggest all rom-com lovers to watch this film.

    it is one of those movies you will never forget.

    “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.”



  8. Forest Gump is a movie based on a boys life. He was born with legs that don’t work properly and after a miracle they begin to move. We see the story of his life and how he dealed with school bullying, relationships and even fighting in the army. What I like about this movie is that it made me laugh and it was relatable to many people. I watched this with family friends and we were nearly laughing through the whole movie. I would recommend this movie who love comedy movies because it is hilarious and to people 10+ because there are some things they wouldn’t understand. Overall I would rate this movie a 8/10. It is definitely worth watching.
