It was a good movie... watched it 12 years after it was released.. It had a good story, I can't stop crying whenever they had to execute another prisoner with the electric chair..It had a god message too- I really pity John (spoiler..) who had to pay for something he did not do, but at least he is with God now and didn't have to feel all that suffering. What do you think about this movie..

Its an excellent movie, another masterpiece by Frank Darabont after The Shawshank Redemption .It has a very emotional story indeed.Best thing about this movie is, normally we try to judge people by their beauty and appearance ,here there is a man who looks like a dangerous killer and he is child of god with pure heart.So its a very good message by the director and writer.Also the police officials in jail are known to be quite emotionless and merciless but in this movie they have shown emotional side of them beautifully.The ending of this movie is really very sad and it reminds me of the story of Christ when he was crucified even if he was innocent.

There were many things in the film to make him a Christ like figure. I think it was intentional. If I picked it up, it had to be really blatant. I'm not a Xian and I caught it.

Yes TheCatLady, as I thought about it, he really did seem to be in a similar situation as Jesus Christ, but I didn't really think about it because I focused on his character, John Coffey more and didn't realize it until after the movie.

I remember i watched this movie once and that was a long time ago.i can't recall the whole story but i remember one character-a big,bald, black man. If i remember it right then i would agree that it's a good movie. I think it's one of my friend's favorite.

Yes, there was a really big black man who was accused of killing and raping the 2 children. It was really sad since he was (spoiler) innocent. He just wanted to help the girls but it was too late.. but at least he is with God now.

It is quite a really long movie, like, more than two hours (189 minutes to be exact) .. it may be a bit slow at some parts but it gets really better near the end. Hope you watch it until the end..

It's one of very few films I've watched more than once. normally, once I've seen something I'm not interested any more but this one struck a chord with me.

Yes, this is a very interesting movie- although it was a really long one.. It just got me from beginning to end.. the characters were interesting and they portrayed their roles well. they definitely deserve all the awards they won.
