The Green Mile (1999)

Asking the question “what’s that great film with that big black guy in?” to a group of  men can usually yield some dangerous responses, most including Lexington “Lex the impaler” Steele. However if you don’t know who that is (I don’t) you would hopefully say The Green Mile. This is a real ManCry film indeed.  Basic story we all know : ” about the lives of guards on death row leading up to the execution of black man accused of child murder & rape, who has the power of faith healing….”

Yes it might sound a bit depressing and religious reading the description but wow did I cry. It’s not often I get really emotional over the death of a mouse but I must admit I really did. Great film , superb job by all cast members and should be in every ManCry fans DVD collection.

Memorable movie quote ” I helped Del’s mouse become a circus mouse. Gonna live in a mouse city”

ManCry star rating ********* 9/10
