Braveheart vs. The Shawshank Redemption



Very Difficult Decision.Hmmm...

Braveheart by the slimmest of margins.

I have to give the nod to Shawshank...but this is as close as it gets.

I'm changing my mind and wondering why I had to. I do really love Braveheart but The Shawshank Redemption gets better with every viewing and recently took over my #1 spot.

Two films that are among the very best of the 1990s. That said, Braveheart is the better of the two. It is an ambitious, grand epic with action, political intrigue, and a love story. It just makes Shawshank seem small by comparison.

Shawshank by far. Brilliant storytelling and acting which beats Braveheart any time of the day.

Braveheart is the best film of all time, if not for the Shawshank Redemption....Sorry Mel

my top 2 films of all fucking times yet shawshank is the winner here

Shawshank takes the cake for its greater characters and story despite Braveheart being an awfully awesome movie!

Just can't beat Shawshank.

Shawshank wins but both are overated imo.


Two gems from the 90's. Going with Shawshank.

Braveheart is more flawed, but also much more effective. Braveheart by half-a-mile.

Shawshank easy

Braveheart is my number 1 out of the 1,800 movies I've seen, it beats TSR but not by much. I fell in love with Braveheart at 11, and I love it and appreciate it even more so now. Yup 11 yo me loved this movie, I laughed/cried/raged/cheered/cried again, so powerful!

Shawshank vs. Braveheart is like choosing which child of yours to save from a burning building.

It's braveheart

Braveheart>The Shawshank Redemption

Shawshank is pure greatness but braveheart was vastly boring.
