Product Description

Hanks/Morse/Hunt/Duncan/Cromwe ~ Green Mile

Amazon.ca

"The book was better" has been the complaint of many a reader since the invention of movies. Frank Darabont's second adaptation of a Stephen King prison drama (The Shawshank Redemption was the first) is a very faithful adaptation of King's serial novel. In the middle of the Depression, Paul Edgecomb (Tom Hanks) runs death row at Cold Mountain Penitentiary. Into this dreary world walks a mammoth prisoner, John Coffey (Michael Duncan) who, very slowly, reveals a special gift that will change the men working and dying (in the electric chair, masterfully and grippingly staged) on the mile . As with King's book, Darabont takes plenty of time to show us Edgecomb's world before delving into John Coffey's mystery. With Darabont's superior storytelling abilities, his touch for perfect casting, and a leisurely 188-minute running time, his movie brings to life nearly every character and scene from the novel. Darabont even improves the novel's two endings, creating a more emotionally satisfying experience. The running time may try patience, but those who want a story, as opposed to quick-fix entertainment, will be rewarded by this finely tailored tale. --Doug Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Excellent March 19 2003
Format:DVD
The plot takes place on Cold Mountain Penitentairy's death row, one of the scariest and deadliest places, where "the green mile" is the walk to the electric chair. You see how the different people there, awaiting the famous chair, handles the situations, where some are happy and others are heartbreaking.
Tom Hanks plays the head prison guard, Paul Edgecomb, and one day a new prisonner, Michael Clarke Duncan as John Coffey, arrives, convicted of killing two nine years old sisters. He is the biggiest and stongest inmate and immediately intimidates the prison guards. But it soon turns out that Coffey is the nicest and most polite of the inmates. He's even afraid of the dark.. When Edgecomb discovers that Coffey has supernatural powers. Soon Edgecomb wonders if Coffey actually did the murders, or if he's in there as an innocent man... Edgecomb decides to find out what really happened the night the two girls were killed, but finding out the truth might not make thing any easier for him...
Tom Hanks does a great job as Paul Edgecomb, but most impressive is Michael Clarke Duncan as John Coffey. Together with the other actors and actresses they outdid themselves in one of the best movies I've ever seen. Stephen King wrote an excellent and the director Frank Darabont did an excellent job turning it into a movie!!
This is a story I'll never forget. The 3 hours never seemed long and boring. Great story with great acting performances. I highly recommend this movie. One of the best ones out there!

The Film 5/5

Watching a Darabont movie is like entering another world. He takes his time with the story and the development of the characters. Don't expect fast cuts and short scenes; each film is a work of art that is meant to be savored.

Before I talk about the film, I have to mention a funny story. Stephen King decided to write the book in a series of six installments. King was inspired by Charles Dickens, who also liked the serial novel format. I found the first installment in a supermarket and kept the receipt. It listed the item as "Two Dead Girls" for 99 cents. It's amazing what you can buy in supermarkets these days.

The Green Mile is set in a Louisiana prison, but, unlike The Shawshank Redemption, the inmates can only interact by talking and never leave their cells to mingle. Each prisoner is condemned to death and is awaiting a meeting with Old Sparky, the electric chair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Clark Duncan was amazing!! Nov. 19 2006
By Erico
Format:DVD
This movie was a monster (3 hours long) but man o man was it excellent. Michael Clark Duncan's depiction of John Coffey was mind blowing and most of the script came right out of the Stephen King novel. Duncan's performance was so poignant I was trying hard not to cry throughout the whole movie. It was especially tough when he sat down in the electric chair and begged the hood not to be put over his eyes. It was a great movie but I recommend that you read the book before watching it.
