A MUST see for anyone who still believes that there is a higher power and/or Deity that not only heals people, but puts them in specific places and circumstances so the world can see that the Spirit of God is much stronger than the inferior flesh.

This is on my list of one of the best movies I've ever seen. Tom Hanks and David Morse worked SO well together I was impressed. It's 3 hours long but it honestly you can't tell because you're so into it you won't notice.

This is an excellant story, with great stars, and excellant acting. I have seen the movie several times, and I have read the book too. Movie follows the book very closely...which I think adds to why I think the movie is so good. Tom Hanks does a wonderful job. As do the supporting actors. Even the mousie. So have to watch this movie.
Because I did not get my copy of the movie from the DVD swap club, it will not let me rate it with stars....but I do give it a FIVE STAR RATING.

A testament to humanity and a fine story
Linda Linguvic | New York City | 10/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Starring Tom Hanks as a death-row prison guard in 1935, and written by Stephen King, this is an example of story-telling at its finest. My most frequent criticism of films is that they tend to be overlong, but The Green Mile, at a three full hours, needed every precious second in order to pace the story, develop its characters, and lead the viewer into the satisfying conclusion.Despite some gruesome scenes depicting the details of electric chair execution, the film is a testament to the humanity of people. The audience gets to experience the stress of the responsibility of prison guards seeking to bring a bit of dignity to the last days of the convicted men, and we share their moral dilemma when they are faced with hard choices.Michael Clarke Duncan, cast as the simple and honest black man sentenced to die for supposedly killing two little girls, is absolutely superb and was nominated for an academy award for his outstanding performance. He's 43 years old, 6'5" tall and a former ditch digger and bodyguard. He has the rare quality to be able to show emotion in a way that makes the audience understand the complexities of his character.Tom Hanks, of course, is excellent, giving us the kind of fine performance we have come to expect of him. And the rest of the cast, including Michael Jeter as the villain, and David Morse as a fellow prison guard are perfect. There is also a small cameo role for Gary Sinese as the Louisiana prosecutor who believes in the guilt of the supposed killer.Directed by Frank Darabont who also shared the scripting of this film with Stephen King, every scene is constructed with just the right amount of tension to keep the viewer glued to the screen. There was not one wasted moment.But by no means is this a simple "wrongly-accused killer" film. There's a slight suspension of reality well integrated into the story line. And constant thought-provoking questions that stay with you long after the video is over.Unless you are the kind of person who absolutely can't bear some heart-wrenching brutal scenes, don't miss this video. I give it my highest rating."
Another Fine Stephen King Adaptation by Frank Darabont
Ryan Costantino | Nowhere, Special | 02/16/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Many are the weary Stephen King fans when it comes to movies made from his work. Until Frank Darabont came along and brought us The Shawshank Redemption making us believe in the possibility of a good movie stemming from a good book. The Green Mile is no exception. This is the fascinating serial novel brought to living, breathing, vivid life. Spectacular performances by every member of the cast. (Please take note of Michael Clarke Duncan's performance as John Coffey) A note to those who have read my reviews here on Amazon, in my review of The Green Mile: The Complete Serial Novel I mistakenly call the character John Coffey; Paul Coffey(who happens to be an excellent hockey player). The mistake was noted after the review was posted and please understand I was embarassed by that. But life goes on. Back to the movie. The Green Mile is quite lengthy(which will deter some potential viewers) but its length is necessary to tell the story. And what a story it is. A large black man, a little slow upstairs but kind to the soul, is accused and convicted of murdering two little girls. The setting is Florida during the Depression, a time and place brimming with injustices. The story and the movie deal with this with heartwarming sincerity, coming close to being a tearjerker. Being a Stephen King movie the supernatural can't be far behind and John Coffey, who wouldn't hurt a fly, is just full of surprises. A real treat for Stephen King fans and moviegoers in general and one of the best movies to come along in recent years."
More than five stars
Edward Gordon Brown | 03/28/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is by far the best adaptation of King on-screen, and also one of the most wonderful films I have ever seen. All the actors seemed to live and breathe their roles. I usually have the annoying habit of wanting to know how long it would take until a film ends, but that was a question that never popped into my head during the course of this film. I've seen the eighteen reviews before me and I've read many of them giving a synopsis of the film. I will steer clear from that and simply say that I absolutely loved all the actors...Michael Clarke Duncan shone as John Coffey (good God that man's enormous), David Morse(Brutus), Dough Hutchison as the vile Percy Wetmore and last but certainly not least, Sam Rockwell as Wild Bill Wharton. He, as all the rest of the cast, was perfect for the role. People who complain about the length of the film don't really understand what The Green Mile is all about, I think... and what it is to me, is one of the best movies I've ever seen, and I will certainly see it many more times in the future. Frank Darabont, and everyone else who made The Green Mile exist- especially the main man behind it- Stephen King- I can't thank you enough. This is sheer brilliance."
