If you don't like this, we can't be friends.
Pretty good movie overall. First half was nothing special but it got better as it went along.
The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
One of the points critics often mention is the fact that the guards on death row are too kind. Too sensitive. This might be true, I can't tell, I've never been on death row before. Neither have most of the critics, I assume. Maybe the nefarious Percy was indeed more realistic, but if there's one absolutely awful person it's gotta be him. I think that Death Row should really be like this. They may be criminals, but they're still people who are about to die. Some kindness can go a long way.This picture might be somewhat predictable, cheesy even. Yet that is not the point here. This film is meant to inspire you. To make you think. Think about the world we live in. John Coffey's speech shows this. Powerful words delivered with great eloquence. "Mostly, I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world every day. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head, all the time... Can you understand?"Never in my life have I been more moved by words. John Coffey was a shining light, in a world of immense darkness. Some may call this movie naive. Only meant for the gullible. I don't think that's true. This movie makes you painfully aware of all the injustice and wrong in this world. And John Coffey knew it. He knew it all. He did not stand up to heal more people. He asked to be released of it. I do not call that gullible or naive. I call that thought-provoking. In the real world, too, people are aware.This film is beautiful. Three hours will fly by. Your emotions will be a rollercoaster. This isn't just a good movie. This is a riveting experience.
Its hard to get much better than this! Take everything that you knew about prison movies and throw it out of the window. Prepare to be entertained and left with mixed emotions.
And that Dale scene was horrific and did John really had to die? All the guys were crying as they said their last goodbyes and so was I!
Ce film est un classique, toujours efficace, qui pose les bonnes questions.
