The Green Mile
Wednesday, July 25, 2001
Summary : A long, slow movie about a miracle worker that ends up on death row. The guards believe him, and the bad guys get taken care of. Not sure what the point of it all is, though. (R)
Pros : The trick mouse is great! Makes you want to go start Mouseville yourself.
Cons : Wierd, God-less miracles. Doesn't leave you with many answers, especially when the good guy gets the chair anyway. Really intense electric chair scene, and lots of profanity and blasphemy also detract from the movie.
Who : Watch this if you're interested in wasting some time, definitely no kids.
- Hans W. Walther: The Green Mile isn't just one of the best movies I have seen - it is the best movie I have ever seen since movies are being made. In my eyes it's a triple cry against death penalty starting 1895. I have seen the movie in English and in German and I read the book - twice each. The Green Mile is good for ten Oscars, not just one.
