More Info:
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Above all a cracking good yarn that earns its laughter, its wonder and its tears. Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    As Darabont directs it, it tells a story with beginning, middle, end, vivid characters, humor, outrage and emotional release. Dickensian.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Sean Means

    Darabont follows King's book fairly closely, allowing the audience to steep itself in the setting and characters slowly, like reading a good novel. Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    A touching (and at times horrific) -- albeit overlong -- Christ allegory, that scores not so much on the strength of its convictions as it does on the truly remarkable performances it elicits from the cast.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    Has a simple but exceptionally powerful and uplifting emotional lure.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    Well acted by an ensemble that leans toward equality for all, Mile carries its long running time extremely well.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Jay Carr

    There's almost too much there, but the three-hour-plus film permits the kind of detailing that not only brings the storytelling to life, but sometimes persuades us we're breathing to its rhythms.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Excessive, but I, like Mr. Jingles, can't resist the Christmas-season cheese.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • William Arnold

    A richly textured thriller.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Elvis Mitchell

    A film with a counterproductive tendency to take its time...but unassumingly strong, moving performances and Darabont's durable storytelling make it a trip worth taking just the same.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    An intermittently powerful and meticulously crafted drama that falls short of its full potential due to considerable over-length and some shopworn, simplistic notions at its center.

    Variety Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    From its deceptively easygoing beginning to the heart-wrenching finale, The Green Mile keeps you wonderfully high above the cynical ground.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Modest, on-the-money performances, which look effortless because they're so meticulously thought out, make the hours fly by.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • F. X. Feeney

    A fascinating tragedy, easy to underrate.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Gregory Weinkauf

    A loud and ghastly movie to sit through and not short on gratuitous hideousness, but Darabont has also done his best to baste it with humanity and sweetness.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Robert Horton

    I still feel pushed around by Darabont's mysticism, and his overbearing sense of grandness; a little bit of the Mile goes a long way. Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    Much of the three-hour movie takes place in the prison, but the resonant characterization, expansive plotting, and judicious use of exterior locations and flashbacks remove any sense of claustrophobia or sluggishness.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Its view of spiritual healing is closer to Spielberg fantasy than religious insight. Still, its good acting and good intentions will be enough to please many viewers.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Edward Guthmann

    Three hours of overstatement and schmaltz.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    A shameless "Shawshank" redux.

    San Francisco Examiner Full Review
  • Tom Keogh

    Simply a case of severe overreaching and the illusion that an overstuffed movie is an epic movie. Full Review
  • John Hartl

    While writer-director Frank Darabont often fails to make King's story plausible, that's no fault of the actors. The performances are the movie's strong suit. Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Superficially respectful but ultimately cruel.

    Slate Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    Irritatingly repetitious and piled high with long-foreseen conclusions.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Moves with the suffocating deliberateness of a river of molasses.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Christopher Brandon

    So moving, so memorable, so magically produced, it's going to delight millions of movie fans and sweep the Oscars.
