The Green Mile Reviews

Much of the three-hour movie takes place in the prison, but the resonant characterization, expansive plotting, and judicious use of exterior locations and flashbacks turn the walls into windows.

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

Three long hours of wind, an exercise in titanic self-importance intent on passing off klunky rhetoric as poignant drama.

In its own old-fashioned way, Frank Darabont's style of picture making is well matched to King-size yarn spinning.

By taking the extra time, Darabont has made King's The Green Mile into a story which develops and unfolds, which has detail and space.

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.

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

The three-hour-plus film permits the kind of detailing that not only brings the storytelling to life, but sometimes persuades us we're breathing to its rhythms.

The movie taps into a vein of Dickensian sentiment, nightmare and idealism, ribaldry and tragedy that give it that part-dark, part-shining fairytale quality that imbues most King tales and all three of Darabont's features.

Frank Darabont is such a committed filmmaker, and believes so earnestly and intensely in the stories he puts onscreen, that it seems unsporting to point out that hokum is his middle name.
