An instant classic honestly. Why cannot there be more movies like this? I don't know. Just the idea of a guy telling random strangers his life story on a bench is amazing. This movie combines great character development, realistic war horrors, and a heart-warming ending. You can't really bring this movie down by saying it has many "cliches" because it's arguably the birth of some cliches movies use. And I'm really glad they just left the masterpiece as it is and not bother with a sequel. There's really no need.
Forrest Gump is an amazing movie with an Oscar winning performance by Tom Hanks and other amazing performances by Gary Sinise and the rest of the cast! t! It takes place over many different years about a man with certain mental issues going through some of the most major events of his time. As the winner of the Academy Award for best picture, Forrest Gump is an extremely well made film and it's one of the best of it's year!
A movie of a simple man in midst of the not simple events and struggles in life. Forrest's naiveness allows the viewer to feel, and think for themselves during each event, not being persuaded by the protagonist.
