:shock: After everything that guy went through,it was so cool to see him come out the other end, even and happy . :D The unveiling of his escape was beautifully constructed ! The scene where they meet each-other on that peaceful beach after spending all that time in hell was great ! :D

A great movie and the story it is based on is also great. It is one of the few Stephen King movies where they didn't fuck it up by changing the original story.

I've seen the last half of the Green Mile and Shawshank, I'd say green mile by a long shot 8) Haven't seen misery yet.
