Even with all the hype everyone I know had built up for this movie, it still exceeded my expectations. Robbins and Freeman were both excellent and it had just about the most satisfying ending of any movie I have ever seen.
Yeah. 10/10 for sure. This is one of those movies that I'll stop to watch if I ever catch it surfing through channels. Morgan Freeman's voiceover work is outstanding (his voiceover of Million Dollar Baby was delivered in exactly the same style and made the first half of that movie go from good to great).
This was some of Freeman's best work and definitely Tim Robbin's best work.
