Product Description

Product Description

Screen adaptation of Stephen King's best-seller. In 1935 Louisiana prison guard Paul Edgecomb (Tom Hanks) meets convict John Coffey (Michael Clarke Duncan) and it is an experience which will change his life forever. Coffey, an eight foot giant, is on Death Row convicted of the murder of two children - and he is afraid to sleep in his cell without a night-light. Coffey also has a special gift, one which he uses to prove to the guards that he has been wrongfully convicted.

From Amazon.co.uk

"The book was better" has been the complaint of many a reader since the invention of films. The Green Mile is Frank Darabont's second adaptation of a Stephen King prison drama The Shawshank Redemption was the first) and 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 film 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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.

The Green Mile probably not that same opinion as most but I actually enjoy this better than Darabont's other epic, The Shawshank Redemption. It should have won Oscars but didn't down to 2000 being a lucrative year of classy movies. For instance, if this film was out last year, Avatar and The Hurt Locker wouldn't have had a lookin'. Michael Clarke Duncan, in his first major role was robbed of a best supporting actor Oscar really (Michael Caine was just being Michael Caine).

For the HD part, I can report that it's a great transfer! I've never noticed just how much all the actors were sweating until now - the detail level is that much higher. Mr Jingles looks fantastic - on the same level as Peter Jacksons King Kong in detail. Some of the limitted amount of outdoor scenes away from 'The Mile' aren't top quality but still the vast majority of the quality is excellent. The extra's are SD from the DVD - it's well worth watching how they did Mr Jingles in the days before CGI took over, it's a refreshing change. Audio on the DVD was great and it's great here also but The Green Mile isn't a movie for audio muscle. As long as the dialogue is clear that's all we really need. The thunder and lightning clap is the only place HD audio comes into play.

This DVD is perhaps one of the all time greats.I have been a fan of Tom Hanks for many years,and have found him to be one of the most versatile,and talented actors I have had the pleasure to watch,he reminds me very much of our very own David Jason whom I first saw in a play in the west end called 'No sex please were British'which is a comedy.I recognised then a person who obviously had read his script well and actually becomes the character he portrays.Tom Hanks has these same qualities and this is what makes him such a compelling actor to watch,from comedy to drama.
I would recommend all his films to any 16-90 year old person simply for the range of his films and the absolute enjoyment of seeing a truly great actor at work from Forest Gump right through to The saving of Private Ryan.
I'd like to thank Amazon.co.uk for their excellent and straight forward service and also their range of dvds and books,being new to the internet I was dubious of buying online and giving out my banking details but Amazon put me at ease,and I now look for ward to using them again.

The perfect gift for all movie enthusiasts is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker
An abundantly loyal Stephen King adaptation (something of a rarity) that manages to balance a ton of heart and an equal amount of weirdness without getting the two hopelessly tangled along the way.

It can be blunt and telegraphed at times, it's seriously overlong at just past three hours, and the dialog has moments of real weakness, but it's able to counter all that with a serious knack for tension, a truckload of bittersweet feelings and some fantastic central performances.

Tom Hanks and Michael Clarke Duncan are the most visible, and work an easy connection with the cameras in two deeply sympathetic roles, but Sam Rockwell also hands in a terrific part as a give-no-damns lunatic whose wild, vicious, unhinged attitude works in strong contrast to his cellmates' general resignation.

Tough to watch in places, especially as the mile's population begins to dwindle, but generally arresting and intensely emotional - there isn't anything else quite like it.

I have read the book and I always prefer books to films. However on this occasion the film truly surpassed my expectations. Excellent acting and you so wanted a diff ending for Coffey. Some great well known actors in the film. Truly enjoyable. Yes its long at over 3hrs, but send kids to bed early, switch off phone and curl up on sofa with box of tissues and enjoy.

I wont tell you the story- other reviewers have done that. It does explore the characters well. Some you will love, some you will hate. Everybody gets what they deserve except Coffey. He is a 'simple' man but touches the lives of all on the green mile. I liked to think of him as an angel thats just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Its different from Shawshank. They often get thrown in together as 'the prison films'. Each film is unquestionably magnificent but completely different. It would be like comparing Deerhunter and Forest Gump as 'vietnam war films'

If you watch this film and cant rate it 4 or more stars, then you have no heart or soul. And had better stick to Jeremy Kyle....

This film is delightfully enriching, which is a skill in itself given the truly dreadful setting and happenings.
The journey is one of battered souls, both prisoners and guards, battered out of normal human responses by circumstance and cynacism. It is set in depression struck Louisianna.
John Coffey and his great gift challenge many assumptions and bring hope were it would ordinarily be lost, curing sickness, giving life when none could hope for it and ultimately righting wrongs and evil doing.
For John his gift is a double edged sword for with it's truth it brings horror and with it's empathy it leaves no room for his own emotional world. Part of John's journey is not simply to share his gift but show it's warts and to convey his need to escape it, but here lies the dilemma for the guards and for Edgecombe in particular. In granting John his escape is he condemming himself and his colleagues? and if so what to?
A truly amazing drama and a great working of the novel.
