Forrest Gump Reviews

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

For its 20th anniversary, 'Forrest Gump' is being rereleased for one week in the IMAX format nationwide, including at Rave Cinemas, Davenport. Here is my review from July 1994: Garp + Zelig x Chance = Gump.

Pulling the supremely naive yet mystically wise Gump off is a feather in Hanks' hat.

It might hit you right in the feels, even as your eyes are rolling. To quote one of Forrest's truest pieces of wisdom: Maybe both is happening at the same time.

It's most successful when it is being off-center, a state of grace it doesn't quite have the nerve to maintain.

Hanks is brilliant in evoking Forrest's good-heartedness; he cannot really perceive evil in men, and yet he is so untainted by bigotry or ideology that he makes the perfect witness.

This isn't the meaningful movie it pretends to be. But as a goofy entertainment that speeds through the latter half of the 20th century, stopping here and there to snap a photo or two, Forrest Gump does just fine.

Good as Wright and Sinise are in their roles as Forrest's near-suicidal soulmates, the movie always comes back to Hanks, and director Robert Zemeckis helps him to achieve some of his finest emotional moments.

Dan Webster
Spokesman-Review (Washington)

The performances of Hanks, Gary Sinise, Mykleti Williamson and Robin Wright are worthy. What's missing, though, is a philosophical context in which to gauge what we're watching.

Zemeckis has an exuberant sense of humor, an ability to use good ideas from other movies (he steals from Being There and Zelig) and an unmatched mastery of the technical.

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

As played to perfection by recent Oscar winner Tom Hanks, who is fast proving that he has no acting limits, this film is a social comedy that reaches heights of wit and cleverness.

The movie's technical tricks are great fun, as is its musical soundtrack, which captures the essences of the eras it traverses. But when you come right down to it, it's the oddly magnetic personality of Forrest himself that is the biggest draw.

This tall tale may reach monumental proportions, but Forrest Gump always keeps its magical airiness and grace.

Credit for the success of the film has to start with director Robert Zemeckis, who has taken his Back to the Future and Who Framed Roger Rabbit success and parlayed it into a more mature, yet equally entertaining, film.

One can sneer at it, but one can't ignore it.

All this might have seemed like pressing optimism a bit without the bland but still potent presence of Tom Hanks at its centre, clearly on his way to another Oscar nomination.

...not a wishful paean to a fantasy version of America, but a portrait of America - its awfulness and beauty, promise and pain - as seen through the eyes of an innocent.

This Oscar-winner divided critics in its chronicle of the long journey taken by a slow-witted boy through American history and politics, but there was consensus about the high-caliber acting of Hanks, who won a second, consecutive Best Actor Oscar.
