John Coffery (Duncan) appears on death row every inch the murderer. But his huge presence is misleading as he proves himself not only a sensitive soul, but a man imbued by the power of God. When Coffery performs miraculous acts of healing, Edgecomb (Hanks) begins to beleive he is innocent. But is that enough to prevent Coffery from "Old Sparky" the electric chair?
Polished it is, profound it ain't. A big, tasty meal that lacks the nourishment of Shawshank. Though it is unfair to judge it in Shwshank's wake alone as this is complete a piece of story telling as ever was.
