RIP Michael Clarke Duncan
I will remember you by this film.
And I thank you for it.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
R.I.P. Michael Clarke Duncan
Thanks for the experience and memory of this lovely movie.
You've ensured you will always be fondly remembered by all who watch it.
In 1994, Frank Darabont's adaptation of Stephen King's The Shawshank Redemption opened to much critical acclaim and since then has been praised as one of the greatest films ever made. When Frank Darabont followed it up with another King adaptation, expectations were pretty high. I think most of us can agree those expectations were met.
The acting is superb. Tom Hanks is as amazing as you usually expect him to be. Michael Clarke Duncan is terrific and sympathetic. Doug Hutchinson makes a great asshole. Sam Rockwell makes for one entertaining crazy bastard. You also get fantastic performances from the likes of David Morse, Barry Pepper, Michael Jeter, and Gary Sinise as others in a well rounded cast. The story is…
Yes! after 14 years of this movie being released I FINALLY watch it, and am so happy it lived up to all the hype.
I must admit I had my doubts before watching this, I dont like films that get a lot of praise and when watching it I dont feel the same vibe as the majority of viewers. This however is an exception.
Stephen King again showing his fantastic writing ability alongside Frank Darabont's directional skills to really turn those words into a cinematic masterpiece.
Now lets get to the acting. It is very rare to watch Tom Hanks be out acted but in this case he was. Im not really familiar with Michael Clarke Duncan films but in…
An epic (in every sense of the word) adaptation of Stephen King's serialized 1996 novel about strange happenings on a Death Row (supernatural and otherwise) in the mid 1930s.
It had been years since I'd watched it and once again I am amazed at how well it's paced. Even at just over 3 hours, it rolls along so smoothly, with perfectly spaced set-pieces, a remarkably well-established sense of atmosphere and location, and a gallery of finely tuned performances from its spectacular ensemble cast that there is never once the slightest sense of dullness.
While I am certainly receptive to criticism of the way Michael Clarke Duncan's character is written (simple, saintly, and subservient, truly a "magical negro" character), there is…
I always taught movies were made to entertain us. I also don't like films which only teach us,but do not entertain. but this one,this one is an exception. Of course,i have to take anti depressives for a week after seeing it,but i am certain it was worth it.
I watch this movie every time it is on
A both heart-warming and heartbreaking tale exploring life on death row. It's at its strongest when humanising the inmates of the prison and the development their relationships with the prison guards.
An enjoyable plot, but it lacked any significant depth. A good, but overly long, movie.
Don't ruin your immersion by looking up Michael Clarke Duncan's real height.
The Green Mile good performances and a steady directorial hand balance out a slightly over the top screenplay that manages to impress despite its long run time.
This story is awesome. It's long and it emotionally drains you, but is worth it.
Um dos melhores filmes que ja assisti, inspirado numa obra prima de Stephen King, À Espera de Um Milagre é cheio de cenas emocionantes em sua história complexa com um Tom Hanks perfeito no papel de Paul Edgecombe. Mesmo sem toda a primazia de King para descrever a tudo, sem dúvidas é um ótimo filme que seguiu muito bem o roteiro proposto no livro.
So, so heartfelt.
