Forrest Gump Reviews

Adam Mars-Jones

Forrest Gump is a schmaltz-Zelig, a Being There engineered from the genetic material of a Hallmark card.

Exquisitely made, expertly crafted... and a work of purest, blackest evil.

It was competently made but overlong and occasionally infuriating.

Judging by the the movie's enduring popularity, the message that stupidity is redemption is clearly what a lot of Americans want to hear.

Forrest Gump is a perfectly competent movie. Its major failure is one of morals and ideas, and the fact that so many, many people did not seem to notice or care, is what really flummoxed me.

Forrest Gump has the elements of an emotionally gripping story. Yet it feels less like a romance than like a coffee-table book celebrating the magic of special effects.

America's loss of innocence as filtered through the eyes of an innocent -- that's the theme of this plodding, heavy-handed parable.

Forrest Gump is never sure of what it is or what it wants to be.

The press kit says Gump brings a rare clarity to what we went through in the '50s, '60s and '70s. But I only saw a pitiful stooge taking the pie of life in the face, thoughtfully licking his fingers.

So afraid to dredge up debate that when Forrest is handed a mic at an antiwar rally, someone unplugs the speakers so we can't hear him - fitting for a movie with nothing to say.

It was almost like it was written by a committee and everybody got to write 10 minutes of the story.

Christian Science Monitor

The movie supports its optimistic agenda by evading or overlooking many hard realities of the historical period it supposedly wants to explore and understand. The result is a winning but ultimately dishonest portrait.

The worst thing is the film goes for brilliance when it really isn't.

Toeing the centreline like a motherf***er while Rome burns. Can I get an "amen"?

For all its ambition, the movie ends up using great historical events in the service of a dubious sentimentality.
