The supernatural elements carry an undeniable emotional charge, but the solution to the underlying murder mystery is disappointingly tidy and trite.

A deeply racist movie, though clearly none of the filmmakers thinks so... By the picture's end, we are asked to grasp electrocution as in some way an act of benevolence.

Its 188 minutes of viewing time seemed like a life sentence.

The Green Mile is irritatingly repetitious.

Darabont has an artful ability to use production values to make a film appear as though it were actually transporting you somewhere. But when the credits roll, you realize you never left Kansas.

To more than a few viewers, this one will feel like a life sentence.

This movie is being described as inspiring? To me it just seems morbid, melancholy, sad, and far too long.

The movie uses the emotional sentiments that death presents as a crutch of support for an otherwise weak and underdeveloped production.

Suffice it to say you must be willing to buy some pretty incredible stuff if you want to enjoy this experience.

Those whose lives Coffey touches may find relief from physical ailments, but they seem no freer, more hopeful, or nobler for the experience.

The Green Mile is more than an hour old before anything like a plot develops, and then it turns out to be such a sentimental-supernatural whopper that even Tom Hanks, usually the most casually credible of actors, is severely tested.

January 1, 2000
JoBlo's Movie Emporium

This film is slow, drawn-out, boring, uninteresting, unexciting, predictable and topped with a couple of one-dimensional 'evil' characters.

The Green Mile is simply a case of severe overreaching and the illusion that an overstuffed movie is an epic movie.

Falls under the weight of the more solid portrayals of evil, misfortune and injustice.

The Green Mile effectively sideswipes the enduring hot political issues it raises to force viewers to a pro-Hanks position.

Darabont works big but thinks small, or at least without great complexity.

It's hard to be affected by The Green Mile, for it rarely offers much background on any of its characters beyond their Central Casting pigeonholes.

One thing confirmed by The Green Mile is that if Tom Hanks' head gets any bigger, the rest of his movies are going to have to be filmed in IMAX.
