Miracles happen in unexpected places, even in the Death Row cell block at Cold Mountain Penitentiary. There John Coffey, a gentle giant of a prisoner with supernatural powers, brings a sense of spirit and humanity to his guards and fellow inmates.

Tom Hanks leads a stellar ensemble (including Michael Clarke Duncan as Coffey) in this emotional, uplifting story of guards and captives; husbands and wives; prisoners and a remarkable mouse named Mr. Jingles; and on another level, of a moviemaker and his source.

That filmmaker is Frank Darabont, who returns after his 1994 directorial debut, The Shawshank Redemption, to adapt another tale by Stephen King into stirring, crowd-pleasing entertainment, nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

This fabulous story is set in Louisiana State Prison, during the 1930's, and The Green Mile, Cellblock E is what the inmates and prison officers refer to as death row. Paul Edgecomb (Tom Hanks) is the senior prison guard of this wing and controls this department with compassion; a startlingly different approach considering the legendary cruelty, terror and brutality of southern prisons. Within the cellblock E, Paul Edgecomb is joined by men, who all share his same philosophy and values; that these prisoners in the end await the most disturbing punishment that justice can serve, the Death Penalty. Why make their stay any more uncomfortable? The all-star cast contains David Morse, Barry Pepper, Bonnie Hunt, Michael Clarke Duncan, James Cromwell, Michael Jeter, Doug Hutchinson, and Harry Dean Stanton.

Directed by the same Director that gave us " The Shawshank Redemption", Frank Darabont completed an extraordinary double with this movie. Both movies underscore the storyline of prison life and both are written by Stephen King. Darabont's great direction highlighted the clear sense that all involved in the production knew that they were dealing with something special, and the final results speak for themselves. It's a movie, packed full of high drama, a respectable helping of suspense, and some generally moving sequences. The casting is superb - every actor is perfectly suited for his role and does an outstanding job, although there are many characters in this film it would be difficult to single out any individual performance. Many of the characters are complex, some are truly outstanding and each one of them has sufficient time to display their intricacies. There are times when the storyline runs without dialogue, so watch out for little subtleties of face, eyes and body language coming from all the actors, another tribute of great acting. This is evident in the opening sequence and remains throughout. The story also finds a way to slide in a message in what has to be one of the most gruesome deaths ever seen in a movie, but at the same time it manages to not moralize. It's not hard to perceive that this movie is probably against the death penalty, but I think it displays the subject without skirting around the outside perimeter.

The length is about three hours and it seems that critics have complained about that fact. The length is needed to tell this story the way it should be told, and the story is so very engrossing.
I can assure you, the film never drags and is never monotonous, and it certainly never feels that degree of time has passed. The camerawork is outstanding, cast magnificent and direction faultless. The Green Mile is a masterpiece of filmmaking and a fascinating character driven story, finally entertainment . . . . . . . . At it's very best.

 Best Film Ever Made

My mum was always nagging me to watch this film and it always looked dull to me whenever i picked it up to put it on, But when i did eventually sit down and watch it, it became my favourite film of all time. The storyline is amazing and so heartfelt it will bring tears to anyone that watches it. The casting is perfect with every performance flawless. If you dont own this film dont hesitate to press the buy button, it will be the best film you ever purchase.

The Green Mile (1999) is a supernatural prison drama starring Tom Hanks, Michael Clarke Duncan, David Morse, Barry Pepper, Sam Rockwell and James Cromwell.

The cast of this movie are very good particulary Michael Clarke Duncan as John Coffey. But as you would expect its Tom Hanks who is the heart of the movie. His everyday man charm works perfectly in this movie.

Director Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) does a terrific job adapting Stephen Kings story and getting emotional performances from his cast. Darabont does a solid job directing despite a couple of shaky moments.

The Green Mile will always be compared to The Shawshank Redemption and to be fair its not as good as that movie. But The Green Mile is still a very good movie with a terrific cast and engrossing story.

Quite simply a beautiful, beautiful movie and probably the quickest 3 hours of your life! Superbly told and directed by Frank Darabont and the entire cast have rarely been better! Not to mention another beautiful score from Thomas Newman. Some people say it's even better than Shawshank and you can see why! Will look stunning on blu-ray
