Review: When pure acting meets a beautiful script, you have the recipe for one of the best movies in history. Tom Hanks brings to your screen so many different emotions as Forrest Gump, that inspires you to be better. The movie is so realistic and carefully crafted that during the ambush in Vietnam the enemy is never actually seen. This led many combat veterans, especially Vietnam veterans, to rate this as one of the most accurate combat scenes in movie history. It was very sudden, the enemy isn’t seen, and it happens very quickly. Voted by millions, one of the best narrations with a unique soundtrack,, and one of the most motivational stories ever told. It is worth mentioning that it is the fastest grossing Paramount film to pass the $100 million, $150 million, and $200 million marks.
I am a lifetime movie addict and cinema is my passion. I’ve been a movie writer for 8 years. My goal is to teach people how to watch movies and how to appreciate them instead of hating them. Some gems are hidden out there but I’m here to show you them all!
