Totally absorbing, gut wrenching, confronting film. Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn completely blow the screen away. You forget you are watching a movie at all.

Dead Man Walking has great performances, relevant messages about life and controversial topics like the death penalty, and a fine story. However, the movie can be overly sentimental at times, plus it could've been cut a good 10 minutes.Dead Man Walking has great performances, relevant messages about life and controversial topics like the death penalty, and a fine story.

Challenging, affecting, and uncommonly well-performed, "Dead Man Walking" earnestly displays a worthwhile and incisive loyalty to its powerful source material.

Its was not an easy watch. Sean Penn's character almost never moves from the cell and talks to the nun from through bars.

Sean Penn's character almost never moves from the cell and talks to the nun from through bars. Structuring the film like this leads to a very boring script where nothing happens, it is predictable from start to finish. I would recommend this movie to someone who wants to consider the pro and cons of the death sentence, but it is definitely not an entertaining movie. Expand

Makes you think again! Made me look this up to see what others thought because it clouded what I thought I knew for sure.
