My fave Paul Newman flick.

With almost a seasoned ease, Paul portrays a disheveled, aging, never-has-been, malpractice lawyer who finds within himself the humanity which never really had a chance to surface due to the layered weight of his chronic alcoholism. The movie & Newman's performance sets up very well the desolation & loneliness that the main character moves his l... read more

Sidney Lumet, as a director, has chosen projects which shake the tree of moral dilemmas, that looms large overhead and wait for the fruit to fall on our head, giving us something to shout (Eureka!) about.

Here, is a broken man, Paul Newman. Once a shining star, now lays broken. Not by his own doing, but brought down by the crooked system. Now fate allows him a second chance. He is slo... read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- January 2017 (30 movies items)

" DVD- 2hrs. 9min. First Viewing The Verdict often soars thanks to the power of Paul Newman's performance, but can't help but feel dated today. So many stories have taken from, and the story just isn't all that original to begin with. However, it's more a character piece that true courtroom drama, following Newman's character through a number of setbacks and triumphs. The ending is a bit of a disappointment, but the acting is so good that it's forgivable. Monthly Wesley AwardsBest Actor- Paul N"
