This movie took me a long time to finally put it in the DVD player, but I am glad I did. I had always heard and seen remakes of scenes with Duncan's character. This movie went from heart-warming to shocking and eventually to depressing. Al the characters were written very well and gave the movie different elements. I found the Warden's son-in-law to be a very convincing villain who is fun to hate.

"The Green Mile" by Yojimbo

An ex-prison officer recounts the time during the Depression when a gentle giant with a remarkable gift for healing was on Death Row for the murder of two little girls. I've made no secret of my complete lack of respect for Stephen King and his work, but Frank Darabont made a fine job of adapting another of his prison bound stories The Shawshank Redemption and here he has shown his cinematic ability once more. His measured direction skillfully sidesteps schmaltz and presents a nicely judged comic drama with a supernatural slant that manages to survive the rather ridiculous premise. In fact it is a success despite the source material rather than because of, the mystery aspect is contrived and unconvincing and the supernatural element silly and almost unnecessary. The joy of this film is in...

The Green Mile (1999)

As in the "Shawshank Redemption," Frank Darabont creates another brilliant transformation of a Stephen King novel onto the big screen with an award nominating success. Although "The Green Mile" is three hours long, it is a film that presents numerous interesting character studies that induce strong emotions for the various characters.

Tom Hanks turns in a great performance as Paul Edgecomb, a man who is tough, hard, and duty conscious and at the same time compassionate and human. The film deals with a massive death row inmate in 1935 Louisiana played by Michael Clarke Duncan (in an Oscar nominated performance) who is charged with the murders of two small girls. It is clear from the start that this man is not evil or dangerous at all, in fact he is blessed with the power to heal. The su...

3 hours of pure enjoyment!

"The Green Mile" is one of my favorite Stephen King books and I have read it several times. I was anxiously anticipating the film version, but was concerned that the emotional impact of the book could not be replicated on screen. Fortunately this wonderful story was adapted by Frank Darabont, who did such a magnificent job bringing King's "Shawshank Redemption" to the screen. He does the same high quality work with "The Green Mile". The story is faithful to the book, only losing details that were not important to the story anyway. The casting is superb - every actor is perfectly suited for his role and does an excellent job, although I would like to single out Doug Hutchison. His portrayal of the detestable Percy is right on the mark and suggests complexities in this character I had not d...
