The Green Mile

The Green Mile (1999)

Genre: Crime, Drama, Fantasy

This is a film that everyone needs to watch at least once in their lifetime and it is a classic πŸ˜€ . Its storyline is compelling, gripping and entertaining from start to finish plus mixes realism with magic perfectly πŸ™‚ . The story is dark (it is following the lives of death row guards) and does have some uncomfortable moments but it feels right for the atmosphere of the movie. I loved that the excellent performances from all the actors lead by Tom Hanks (Paul Edgecomb) and Michael Clarke Duncan (John Coffey) helped created so many different characters. I believed each character (some made me love them and some made me hate them πŸ˜› ) and each felt useful to the narrative. I loved the character of Eduard Delacroix (Michael Jeter) who was lovable and funny even if he was a death row inmate plus his exit scene is a shocker. The filming is clean and crisp plus the CGI on the β€œmagic” still works for this movie πŸ™‚ . John Coffey was an extremely likable and unique character and Paul Edgecomb (performed fabulously by Tom Hanks) was a main character you wanted to follow πŸ™‚ . Percy Wetmore was a perfectly horrid character who I believed (and hated πŸ˜› ) and Doug Hutchison performed him brilliantly. The movie also ends great as it leaves you questioning the experience Edgecomb saw while accepting a perfect end to a memorising movie. It is beautifully filmed, has a fantastic storyline with solid acting πŸ˜€ . This is a long movie (over 3 hours) but you really don’t notice πŸ˜› . I definitely recommend this movie if you like Stephen King book adaptations (as this is one) or Crime with a touch of Fantasy πŸ™‚ . Enjoy πŸ˜€

I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
