"Stupid is as stupid does," says Forrest Gump (played by Tom Hanks in an Oscar-winning performance) as he discusses his relative level of intelligence with a stranger while waiting for a bus. Despite his sub-normal IQ, Gump leads a truly charmed life, with a ringside seat for many of the most memorable events of the second half of the 20th century. Entirely without trying, Forrest teaches Elvis Presley to dance, becomes a football star, meets John F. Kennedy, serves with honor in Vietnam, meets Lyndon Johnson, speaks at an anti-war rally at the Washington Monument, hangs out with the Yippies, defeats the Chinese national team in table tennis, meets Richard Nixon, discovers the break-in at the Watergate, opens a profitable shrimping business, becomes an original investor in Apple Computers, and decides to run back and forth across the country for several years. Meanwhile, as the remarkable parade of his life goes by, Forrest never forgets Jenny (Robin Wright Penn), the girl he loved as a boy, who makes her own journey through the turbulence of the 1960s and 1970s that is far more troubled than the path Forrest happens upon. Featured alongside Tom Hanks are Sally Field as Forrest's mother; Gary Sinise as his commanding officer in Vietnam; Mykelti Williamson as his ill-fated Army buddy who is familiar with every recipe that involves shrimp; and the special effects artists whose digital magic place Forrest amidst a remarkable array of historical events and people.~Mark Deming

This is an excellent 4k movie. The visual effects will impress any enthusiastic movie aficionados.The story is well written, and the actors are best of the best, in every scene.This will easily go in the collection, of great movies. Thank you Best Buy.
I recommend this movie to everyone. You should watch it at least once in your lifetime, as this is the only movie of its kind. It's a special movie; Heart Warming, sad, funny, and happy all at once. It's a joy to watch Forrest go from his small town home, to playing football, then to Vietnam, to the creation of the smiley face and Apple, to his shrimp boat voyage, to the loss of his two true loves. If he was an ordinary man, he would not have made it through. This movie will rip at your heart, that is to say, if you have one.

All time classic!
I have never owned this movie and figured it’s about time. I was thinking about picking up the 4K edition, but I have read some reviews saying the transfer was not that good. I was hoping the 4K 25th Anniversary edition would get an upgrade. They only remastered the Blu-ray film. I’m ok with that, I don’t believe this movie requires to be in 4K. My 4K player upscales Blu-ray’s, so this will look great. I also wanted the SteelBook, because it looks pretty good! Only downer is.. there is no artwork on the inside, just plain tin. Still, great to finally have this, and $13. is well worth it!

Decades later, my sentiments for Robert Zemeckis' Forrest Gump still remain true since first seeing it in theaters. Admittedly, it's a well-made production with a thoughtful plot and a terrifically memorable performance by Tom Hanks, but the story is frustratingly melodramatic and forcefully sentimental with a payoff that lacks both the punch and emotional impact the filmmakers seem to have been aiming for. On 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, the now-classic romance drama patiently waits for the bus, packed with a strong but somewhat underwhelming Dolby Vision HDR presentation and an excellent Dolby Atmos soundtrack. Featuring the same set of supplements as its Blu-ray counterpart, the overall package is ultimately recommended for devoted fans of the film while UHD enthusiasts will want to wait for the price to drop.
I'm very particular about what to add to my 4K UHD library, and I chose to add "Forest Gump" because it's a classic movie with the amazing Tom Hanks. The movie is fairly old, but the xfer to 4K is pretty decent. Video quality is generally good and sharp, though some colors seem a bit off. The audio quality is surprisingly good, especially in the battle scene with jets and explosions. The DVD is a worthwhile addition to my Library.
It never made it to me, got lost in the mail.
Best buy was unable to send a replacement. Guess I bought the last one in the western hemisphere.
Cutomer service is better at Kmart, and they just closed their last store last week.
But the movie, I already have it on dvd...just trying to expand my 4k collection. Its a great, one of a kind, masterpiece of a film.
Just don't buy it at Bestbuy.
First let me say that I'm not going to get worked-up over Tom Hanks' portrayal of a mentally handicap character. While Forrest was not the sharpest tool in the shed, his IQ was not more than two standards deviations below the mean. Besides, Mr. Hanks is an actor, and he was merely acting according to the way the author wrote the character, the way the director directed the character, and his own interpretation of both.
This is an exceptional movie--still my all-time favorite. I haven't actually watched it in a while, but when I do, I'm moved every time. How can one not be moved by a character so ingenuous, so resilient, and so good? How can one not be moved by such an incredible story, so skillfully directed? Bad things sometimes happen to good people. "It happens," as Forrest said. Someone once said that "life is ten percent what happens and 90 percent how I react to it." Never has this truth been so accurately portrayed as in this wonderful movie, "Forrest Gump."
"Is he smart, or is he. . . .?" That scene clinched the Oscar for Tom Hanks, and I still can't watch it without getting a big lump in my throat and tears in my eyes. Tom Hanks is the best, most versatile actor of our time, and never has he been more brilliant than he was in this movie. No one with a pulse can watch this movie and not be moved by it--perhaps even changed. I could not recommend any movie more highly.
What can I say that hasn't already been said about this excellent movie. It's a journey well worth taking and a much deserved Oscar win for Tom Hanks. The 4K is simply stunning. I've owned this on regular bluray for years but this version is superior in every way.
