The Green Mile
This film mixed sadness with joy, which made the sheer beauty of this film even better. The innocence and courage in this film is truly inspirational. This, single handedly is the most beautiful and sad film I have ever seen, I'm a man, and my wife and I cried our eyes out, we shared the beauty of this amazing piece of art-work sent from the Gods. Thank you for bringing this beautiful and touching tale to my life!
Nothing more sad than seeing a character that is so innocent and perfect meeting his end due to the injustice and evil of mankind. It is magnified massively by the fact all the guards taking part in the execution know he is innocent and dying for something so despicable that he would never, ever do. At least in Titanic the damsel was saved. In this movie it was just a big build up to devastating loss. Amazing, powerful film, but also massively sad!.
I saw this a few years back in high school, accidentally. It changed my life. That day I became a filmmaker and I've been studying film ever since. I never knew a story could be told in that way. I remember after seeing the film I didn't watch T.V. for over a week, because it was so engrained in my mind.
And Tom Hanks who along with Denzel is the finest actor of our generation, I will always commend him for this film, because he didn't take the spotlight away from Michael Clark Duncan.
How powerful story can be. May we never forget that.
I've never cried over any film in my life. But when John Coffey said: Please boss, don't put that thing over my face, don't put me in the dark. I's afraid of the dark. I've never cried so hard in my life. Saddest film ever!
I cried for the last 15 minutes of the movie, straight. I could tell what was coming, and the first glance of Coffey in the cell gave me a pit in my stomach, but I had NO idea it would hit me that hard. The way this movie takes total control of your emotions is incredible. Every time I think about this movie, it makes me so sad.
The Green Mile is by far the saddest movie I have seen it was a on the edge of your seat film towards the beginning and middle but at the end when john was like please don't put that thing over my head boss I is afraid of the dark made me fall into tears it's a powerfully emotional film and deserves number one in my opinion
Very rarely do I cry at a movie. But for some reason, The Green Mile really got to me and at the end of the movie I was finding myself bawling like a baby. It is by far the best movie I have ever watched and might be my favorite for years to come. It is a movie that you think may not make you cry, however you'll be surprised.
My wife and I were both bawling for at LEAST half of this film. I have been an avid fan of Stephen King since 1995...his books, mostly. As far as film is concerned 'The Green Mile' and 'Stand By Me', (the latter of which was adapted from King's novella ',The Body'), are the only on-screen adaptations of King's work that I love just as much as the books themselves. The Green Mile is a heart-wrenching and beautiful story and film. I don't watch it very often because of the extreme effect it has on me and my wife refuses to watch it again, though boting it as one of the best films she has ever seen. AMAZING movie and story. But damn is it hearbreaking? I'll tell the world...
Titanic is beyond cliche, people vote that because it's the stereotypical answer. Watch the green mile and you will be sobbing by the end, it is devastatingly sad but amazing at the same time, it's so well made, stephen king nailed it. Without a doubt the saddest film I have ever seen
Three hours riding the most emotional rollercoaster called "The Green Mile". Moving; sad; thought-provoking; touching; warm; sentimental; a little humorous; inspiring; tear-jerking and beautifully unforgettable. A rollercoaster ride that you will want to ride again and again. - Britgirl
The Titanic made my wife cry but it was expected. It's a romantic tragedy that pulls at the heartstrings. The Green made my wife cry but it was unexpected. It's a story that looks deep into humanity and asks us why life can be so unfair and hopeful at the same time. This being said, I believe the Green Mile to be a sadder movie.
Saddest movie I've ever seen in my life. I have seen a good bit of movies that are sad, but never have I cried as much as I did in the green mile. You have absolutely no heart if you don't cry by the end of this one. It's a must see, but its very sad
If you've voted for Titanic as the saddest film you've ever seen you are not ready to watch The Green Mile. The titanic is sad but The Green Mile is ridiculous. beautiful film. - Tigerlily21
First, a bit of history. I'm 6 foot 4, weight 135kg and have played rugby my entire life. I'm the sort of guy you wouldn't want to meet in the street. When I was 16 I broke my leg in 3 places without shedding a tear. 2 months later we won the school rugby league. But no. This movie was too much. I have never had to try so hard to hold back tears. When Coffey asked them not to put on the mask, I lost it. Thankfully I was on my own.
This is by far the saddest movie ever. I watched it years ago and every time I watch it again I still have to hold back the tears. Probably (in my opinion) the best movie ever made. Everything is perfect and I would recommend anyone who hasn't seen it to watch it as quickly as possible.
Titanic is sad and all, but after a while, its just another tragic movie. The Green Mile, however, got me to cry on more than one occasion. Especially towards the end where every little sad thing got thrown at me all at once. Among the saddest movie ever made.
Watch the scene where John Coffey gets executed. That scene is why this is the saddest movie of all time. I am still crying as I type this. That is how powerful this movie is. Not only that, but it's amazing film too. Watch it, you won't be disappointed.
This should be number one Titanic never made me cry at all it wasn't that sad but the Green mile made me drown in tears it's such a sweet story as it goes through and then he eventually dies so sad
I cried for at least 2 hours in the bathroom like sobbing, trembling ugly cry, when I walked out my friends asked me what's wrong and I told them that I just saw the saddest movie. I thought that Titanic was the saddest movie but The Green Mile is.
This and Schindler's List are way sadder than Titanic. Everyone knows the ending to Titanic. The endings of Schindler's List and this movie are too good to be spoiled. - Pony
This is a truly amazing, innocent (despite the fact it's about death row) film that has you glued to the screen from start to finish. It is a very powerful and emotional film that can even make the toughest of the tough cry buckets full of tears. Truly spectacular! - KLad1290
My Goodness, no movie has ever hurt me as much as The Green Mile. Amazing performances from Michael Clarke Duncan (R.I.P.) and Tom Hanks makes this movie a masterpiece of filming. John Coffey's death is by far the most devastating movie death I have ever seen.
I found myself crying more than I ever have before... This is a MUST see movie... This is not the movie to watch on a date when you're wearing a lot of makeup, your not gonna end up looking so pretty laugh out loud
I'm a rugby player and this still made me cry... one of few movies! When the big guy said "Please don't put me in the dark boss... I is afraid of the dark", it was so sad!
What made this even more tragic for me was that the person that recommended it told me it was about magic. Coming off Harry Potter high it was definitely not what I expected. Incredibly sad & the best illustration of not judging a book by its cover.
