The Green Mile Reviews
I watched this movie when i was 10 year old. but i can't forget it until now. If i have four thumbs, i'm gonna give all of them to this movie and , of course, Mr. Stephen King. You did a very good job ??????
Normally following a very well written book the film disappoints but not with this film.
This movie talks about a black man who's found in a field, holding two little dead girls in his arms. At that time, America is still very racist and so the man gets death penalty as sanction, without someone even asking if the black man is actually guilty or not. Waiting to be executed by electric chair, the black man is waiting in jail. He meets a white watchman with whom he develops a sort of friendship. But, what is going to happen after? Is the watchman going to do something to save this innocent man?
The Green Mile is a mix between a dramatic and a fantastic movie. It makes us realize that America during the Great Depression isn't great for black people, and that justice is far from being fair. The movie has been adapted from the novel of Stephen King. However, I can't tell you if the book is better than the movie because I haven't read the book.
I could talk for hours about this movie because it is such an amazing movie. I'm the kind of person who cries a lot in front of movies, but this one made me cry even more. It is a moving, smart and original movie. Tom Hanks just as Michael Clarke Duncan make of this movie a movie you need to go see. So, don't hesitate! You will have no regret.
Few movies capture the triumph of the human spirit as memorably as Green Mile. Starring Tom Hanks as Paul Edgecomb, Michael Duncan as John Coffey, and Sam Rockwell as Wild Bill. John coffey a big African American was convicted of murder to 2 small girls, walks the green mile. Paul and 2 other guards who look after Green Mile and the prisoners are unexpectedly surprised of Johns kind and well mannered behavior. Paul is having trouble believing that Coffey committed such a crime, Which also makes it hard for him and the other guards to believe they can carry out coffey's sentence. Some of the strengths of the movie is the exception and responsibility of his sentence even how unfair it is, the actors are very great and play their role perfectly, even the bad guys in the movie. There was only one weakness that Green mile had which was the Length, it was a 3 hour movie. So sit on the couch, and eat some popcorn, and enjoy one of the most longest but greatest movie ever made, this uplifting story filled with mystery, sadness, and some brilliant acting.
