"It's always difficult to keep personal prejudice out of a thing like this. And wherever you run into it, prejudice always obscures the truth. I don't really know what the truth is. I don't suppose anybody will ever really know. Nine of us now seem to feel that the defendant is innocent, but we're just gambling on probabilities - we may be wrong.

There are so few movies in this world that manage to immerse you completely into the situations it portrays. In general, the simpler the situation, the easier the immersion. And this film is extremely simple in premise; it has only two rooms in the entire film and 12 characters, and they pretty much just talk for the entire movie. This seemingly simplistic premise really manages to immerse you as ... read more

No jury can declare a man guilty unless it's SURE.

A dissenting juror in a murder trial slowly manages to convince the others that the case is not as obviously clear as it seemed in court.

…and Justice for All

“I don’t think I can bestow a higher statement of praise on a film than to call it a life changing experience.

12 Angry Men influenced me not to believe everything I hear, instead to question things and ultimately turning me into a more skeptical person. It’s one of few films which helped shape who I am as a person. I find myself constantly visualizing the details, events and locations of the murder case described in the film as I watch it; I could discuss this movie for hours focusing on every minute detail.

Every time I watch 12 Angry Men I find myself focusing in on a different character, I’d have to watch the 12 times in order to fully explore every character, all representative of personalities we’re likely to encounter in real life.

“A masterpiece in character development set in one room almost the whole entire film. That is a bold accomplishment indeed! This film also challenges the justice system when one honest jury member stood up to what's right.” read more

Attica! Attica! posted a review 1 year, 6 months ago

“This is a film where tension comes from personality conflict, dialogue and body language, not action; where the defendant has been glimpsed only in a single brief shot; where logic, emotion and prejudice struggle to control the field. It is a masterpiece of stylized realism--the style coming in the way the photography and editing comment on the bare bones of the content. Released in 1957, when Technicolor and lush production values were common, "12 Angry Men" was lean and mean.” read more

"8.12.2012 6. No siis mitä pystyn sanomaan edes tästä? Kaikki kehut varmasti tiedetään. Todella intensiivinen tunnelma jatkuu koko leffan ajan ja leffa haalii kyllä heti katsojan kiinni penkkiin eikä leffassa ole heikkoja hetkiä. Oikeasti hyvinkin jännittävä elokuva, jonka voisi helposti katsoa vaikka heti uudestaan. Kyllähän sekin nyt jotain vaatii, että leffa joka pitää koko ajan itsensä kiinnostavana, vaikka koko elokuvan tapahtumat käydään yhden huoneen sisällä."

Larri's picks: My Top40 of All-time (40 movies items)

"12 Angry Men directed by Sidney Lumet Battles needn't always be fought with blood splattering and heads decapitated. Sometimes the most intense and thought-provoking battles are fought with words. And boy, what a treat it is to see Henry Fonda defending a young boy who's about to be seated in the electric chair, turning everyone to his side one by one. Why is he so eager to defend this youngster he doesn't know? He believes in the right to live. And when death row's involved, you got to be ab"

Magnificent Cinema (85 movies items)

"Sidney Lumet's first film is one of the greatest directional debuts ever. 12 jurors are trying to solve a case, which is not as easy as it seems to be. Unexpected things about the jurors are revealed while the investigation goes on and on. Tears up slowly, and as said in the poster: "It explodes like 12 sticks of dynamite". Highly enjoyable movie and its themes never get old. "

Five Star Movies (165 movies items)

"Debut feature by Sidney Lumet remains a classic among the courtroom dramas today. 12 jurors, murder case and a reasonable doubt. Sets being next to nothing, as whole movie takes place in one small room, actors are the centerpiece of the film yet it provides a sense of claustrophobic and tense athmosphere, what rare movies have done up today.
