阿甘有自己的坚持，他不断地跑步，JUST RUNS. 他跑步不为任何理由。他说:"人要往前看，千万不要被过去拖累。我想我跑步就是这个意义”和过去告别，不停留在原处。也许这世界上太多人随拨逐流，很少人会坚持做一件事，阿甘坚持自己的坚持，于是他成了“神”。影片中还有一位主要人物是上校丹。他在越南战争中失去了双腿。他说他的命运就是战死。然而阿甘却救他，让他活了下来。失去双腿后他开始憎恨生活，生活得很颓废，责怪阿甘当初救了他。然而当他调整心态，去和阿甘一起捕鱼生活，有了收获后，开始感觉到生活的美好。感谢阿甘当初就了他。影片试图通过这个角色告诉观者生活总是美好的。乌云后有彩虹，绝境后有重生。关键是看我们给不给自己一个好心态，一个机会去改变不好的现状。影片试图向观者传达这样一个信息：或许做好我们该做的每一件事，生活就会给我们一个好的回馈。只要有一种坚持就会出现一个奇迹。
Mr. A Gan has his own perseverance, keeping on running without of any reason, JUST RUNS. He said: “Man has t look forward, and never encumbered by foretime. I thank that"s the meaning of my running.” Say goodbye to foretime and don"t stay in-place. Although so many people in the world are used to follow others and few people can stick to one thing, Mr. A Gan does and becomes “GOD”. There is another character Captain Dan. Dan lost his legs in Vietnarm War. He said that his fate is death in war. However, Mr. A Gan saved him and let him be alive. After losing legs, Dan was decadent and disgusted with life, complaining that A
Gan shouldn"t save him. When he adjusted his mind, living on fishing with A Gan, he started to enjoy the wonderful life and thank A Gan"s help. The movie is intended to tell people that life is wonderful by this character. Rainbow is always after cloud. The key point is that whether we have a good mind and an opportunity to ourselves to change bad situation. The movie is also sent such a message to us: do well what we should do, and life will return us well. There will be a miracle if only there is perseverance.
Unlike a "journey to the west" for younger viewers, it tells a boy of supernatural adventure, where magic was the only power he possessed, and two team members whom willingly constantly guided by his side. Scary, yes, but not too scary, it"s a mediocre book i"d recommend to read age from 8 -10.
