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

5.0 out of 5 stars box of tissues required 12 Feb 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I read the book first, not normally a good idea, but did not know of the making of the film at the time. I was already trying to cast the film and got stuck with John Coffey, I could not think of one person that could possibly make him come to life, of course I was wrong as we have now discovered. I cried at the end of the book, when I went and saw the film, there was not a dry eye in the house but when I watched it on video at home the flood gates opened, I was actually choking. The film leaves out some little details that, although you wouldn't notice if you hadn't read the book, makes the story more of a saga, problem is too have included them would have added hour on film

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning & Gripping 27 Dec 2000
Format:DVD
You forget almost straight away that you will be there for three and a bit hours. After seeing it 8 times at the flicks, I can honestly say, that there is something new in it every time. Not as good as the book, I must admit the director does the story justice in every way possible. This film will make you cry, laugh and feel hatred. Excellent endng with the closing comment "Our own green mile can seem so long." So true, we never know what is infront of us all. Congratulations to the cast and crew. I am a firm believer that miracles do happen. This maybe a film, but watch it and it will make you sit up and think. Some strong issues tackled in the three hours. Miracles? Capital Punishment? You decide. But I would reccomend it to anyone who wants to see a good film. This was one of the first DVD's I bought, and I would buy it again if this one screwed up.

By The usual suspect TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 25 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
Superb movie, subtle, and based on character interactions; that's not to say that "nothing haoppens", but don't expect explosions and car chases! Very fine acting all around.

I have to take issue with a previous reviewer - the 2-disc SE is very good, their are extras on both discs and the film is deliberately split across the two discs so as to increase the bitrate and hence improve the picture quality. Yes, you can cram 4 hours' worth of video material onto one DVD but the quality would be a bit naff - with a long movie like this, or like Peter Jackson's King Kong remake, splitting the feature gives much sharper picture detail ... surely a good thing?

Excellent release of a brilliant movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 hours seem like 30 minutes. 31 Aug 2006
Format:DVD
A totally enthralling film. Superb characters, superb story and, as ever, a dash of science fiction sprinkled in from Stephen King (when doesn't he add this to his tales?). And even though John Coffey had this healing power and Paul Edgecombe (Hanks) had proof Coffey didn't murder the two sisters, Coffey was tired of his life and powers and elected to be executed by 'old sparkey.' In the book another great clue to Coffey's innocence was present, yet missing from the film. They found the girl's lunch packs, (food inside linnen cloth wraps tied in a knot at the top to keep it in), and realised a sauasage was missing. Coffey wore no shoes, and when Edgecombe asked why, was told "Can't tie the laces, Boss." So if Coffey was guilty, how did he untie the linen wrap, eat the sauasage and re-tie it? But the movie works just as well without this small point and the time simply slips away watching it, and if you get through it with no emotional charge going through you then you must be dead already - a real tear-jerker yet a beautiful tale of man's humanity to man.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly brilliant 5 Mar 2003
Format:DVD
When I got this DVD I was dreading sitting through the best part of 3 hours of dreary, dull America in the depression, how wrong could I have been. I was gripped from the very beginning, all of the actors, not just Tom Hanks, made their characters totally believable. The storyline is simply magic, in more ways than one! And is dealt with superbly. Paul, Hanks' Character has, at one stage a severe bladder infection and you can almost feel his pain and discomfort.
You can also feel the fear and dread of the prisoners when they have to face the 'Chair'. the compassion shown by the warders only highlights the awfull reality of the execution, though one of them is, shall we say, a little over cooked!
As the secret of John Coffey is slowly revealed you become more and more gripped by the film, I didn't want this film to end, three hours may seem a long time for a film but I could have sat through six hours of this if I could.
I feel that the music used deserves a mention too, the soundtrack is wonderfully understated and counterpoints the acting beautifully.
For me this is a film I will watch again and again, buy this film and enjoy, you won't be sorry.
