The Green Mile Movie Review Summary

Actors: Tom Hanks, Michael Clarke Duncan

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Green Mile

Paul Edgecomb was a prison guard, and helped with the prison executions. He didn't believe in miracles that could save the prisoners. That was until convicted murderer John Coffey arrives at the prison. He had a healing power to help the wounded. One of the inmates, Del had a circus mouse called Mr. Jingles, who was then run into a little room, when he was executed. When, the Warden's wife is having breathing problems, the prison guards help John bring her back to life. This film is very well-crafted with Michael Clarke Duncan doing an amazing job as Coffey. The lighting effects bring out the greenness of the "Green Mile." Overall, a very uplifting film that only con is it's very long running time.

The review of this Movie prepared by Estefan Ellison

This movie was over 3 hours long and was terribly boring. It's ostensibly the story of an extremely large black guy with magical healing powers who vomits manure from his mouth, but over an hour of the movie passes and all they seem to be doing is watching a mouse scurry around the floor (really). When the extremely large black guy gets into action, he starts by grabbing Tom Hank's crotch to cure him of impotence (I think Hanks liked that). Tom Hanks spends about an hour reflecting on that. Very little happens after that.
