REVIEWS:





"I find it almost impossible to describe how good 'The Green Mile' is. It's a film you simply have to see and experience for yourself. The cast, the writing, the direction, the music, the 1935-era atmosphere -- it's all just perfect. The filmmakers (plus Stephen King, on whose book this movie is based) have achieved a minor miracle themselves in 'The Green Mile'--they've actually made the miracles performed by the character of John Coffey in this movie seem possible. This is truly an amazing and inspiring motion picture. I'm a richer person for having seen it."

-- David Von Pein; January 19, 2013











"The movie is a shade over three hours long. I appreciated the extra time, which allows us to feel the passage of prison months and years. Stephen King...has in his best novels some of the power of Dickens, who created worlds that enveloped us and populated them with colorful, peculiar, sharply seen characters. .... By taking the extra time, [Writer-Director Frank] Darabont has made King's 'The Green Mile' into a story which develops and unfolds, which has detail and space. The movie would have been much diminished at two hours--it would have been a series of episodes without context. As Darabont directs it, it tells a story with beginning, middle, end, vivid characters, humor, outrage and emotional release. Dickensian."

-- Roger Ebert; December 10, 1999
