Paul Edgecomb walked the mile with a variety of cons. He had never encountered someone like John Coffey (Michael Clarke Duncan), a massive black man convicted of brutally killing a pair of young sisters. Coffey had the size and strength to kill anyone, but not the demeanor. Beyond his simple, naive nature and a deathly fear of the dark, Coffey seemed to possess a prodigious, supernatural gift. Paul began to question whether Coffey was truly guilty of murdering the two girls.
A character driven Stephen King story that very much succeeds because its actors know what they are doing: they all shine in their own way. This is a sweeping, fast-moving 3 hour film about how lives can be truly shaped and even somewhat destroyed due to the actions of others – being good or bad.
