Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
It wasn't until 1992 that Chicago stage actor-director Gary Sinise made his mark in movies: first, with an impressive performance in the sleeper A Midnight Clear; and then as producer, director, and star of an adaptation of John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. The latter work was a challenge, in light of the lionized source material as well as the highly regarded 1939 film version starring Burgess Meredith and Lon Chaney Jr.. Working from a script by the legendary Horton Foote (To Kill a Mockingbird), Sinise's version is certainly much closer to Steinbeck's work than the earlier version. He makes George the emphasis of the film, and John Malkovich's Lennie is excellently underplayed. Strikingly photographed by Kenneth MacMillan, the film has an uncluttered visual style. After Mice, Sinise would become one of America's most prolific, respected character actors in films such as Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, and The Green Mile.

    Good Movie

    The movie Of Mice and Men, by Gary Sinise, is an extremely well made movie that out does the book and perfectly portrays Steinbeck¿s views and intentions. It is very evident in the movie that Steinbeck wrote a book that displayed the importance of friendship and understanding. The characters of George and Lenny, played by Gary Sinise and John Malkovich, are perfectly cast for the roles and greatly enhanced my perception and the outcome of the movie. A particular scene, in the movie that, I thought was translated really well from the book was when George explains to Lenny about that farm that they are going own and tend to. The best part about this was the job that John Malkovich and Gary Sinise did to depict the characters actual feelings about their life and what will become of them in the future. The book was very good but after seeing the movie it was alot easier to understand the characters personality and how they would react to certain situations in the book. I highly recommend this movie to anybody who has enjoyed the book and is interested in seeing the characters come to life in a way they could never imagine.

    Of Mice and Men

    After reading the novel Of Mice and Men by Steinbeck, our English Class watched the movie adaptation directed by lead actor, Gary Sinise. The Theme of friendship, which was evident throughout the book, was ever present in the movie as well. The actors¿ performances were extraordinary. Gary Sinise, who takes on the role of George Milton, really portrays what Steinbeck was trying to say about friendship and loyalty. Lennie Small, played by John Malkovich, is a mentally retarded middle aged man who is George¿s companion throughout the movie. George and Lennie¿s friendship is the true essence of brotherhood. They stick together and try to take care of each other in every way. The movie stayed true to the book. A favorite scene is at the beginning of the film, where George and Lennie are discussing supper. Lennie is complaining about their lack of ketchup. It was the best scene in the movie. It really captured who Lennie was. The movie was a great adaptation. Gary Sinise did a wonderful job. I recommend the movie to anyone.

    Worth Watching

    From John Steinbeck¿s novel to Gary Sinise¿s production, Of Mice and Men is a startling example of human nature, friendship, and the pursuit of the American dream. Sinise brings together outstanding actors in John Malkovich and Ray Walston, who display their characters almost better than the book could itself. Malkovich, who stars in many different styles of films, shows once again his versatility with an amazing rendition of the physically strong, yet mentally weak, Lennie Small. Also, Walston plays the part of an aged ranch hand who has lost a hand in an accident years before. Both characters, along with Lennie¿s companion, George played by Sinise, have a plan to purchase a small farm and live off the ¿fatta the land,¿ as Lennie describes it. Each scene is lead into the next remarkably as Sinise brings up the finale with Lennie ruining the three characters¿ dream by accidentally killing the wife of the boss¿s son. This last scene, along with George¿s sacrificing of Lennie¿s life, conveys the three themes mentioned earlier perfectly as Sinise ends a magnificently and thoroughly developed film.

    See this movie

    John Steinbeck¿s Of Mice and Men is a good book, but the film is much better. Director Gary Sinise followed the book and made the film great. Gary Sinise also played the role of George and did an excellent job. John Malkovich stared as Lennie. The character of Lennie was probably difficult to play, but when watching Malkovich you would never know he was acting. Both Sinise and Malkovich brought these characters to life. They both portrayed the characters in a way that let us the viewers know how to feel. Our class read this book two weeks ago. At that time I did not really enjoy it. After watching the film, I found meaning that I did not see when I read the book. Watching the movie helped me put all of the missing pieces together. Once I saw what was going on, I truly understood and liked the story. Seeing the movie helped me realize that there can be more to the plot than you comprehend when reading

    A Great Movie

    John Steinbeck¿s Of Mice and Men was a great novel. The movie based on the novel was great too. The adaptation of the book was almost perfect. To direct this movie seemed as if it would have been very hard, but Gary Sinse being both actor and director did a great job. Sinse made the play seem exactly like the book. The star of the movie, John Malkovich, (Lenny) also did a great job. He was the perfect person for that part because he really brought the character Lenny to life. He made it seem as if Lenny was actually a real person and not a character out of a novel. For a person who doesn¿t like to read I enjoyed reading the book and watching the movie made it even better. The most memorable seen was at the end of the movie when George shot Lenny. You could tell that George didn¿t want to kill Lenny, but it was something he had to do. I would definitely recommend this book and movie to any class. The majority of students would really love it.
