Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out and, eventually, I wasn’t disappointed, that’s for sure. Indeed, what an entertaining movie! Basically, it is actually a really simple story but it was still completely spellbinding and I thought it was pretty awesome to behold. In my opinion, this movie is pretty much the proof that you can make a movie without any explosions, shootings, CGI or whatsover but still remain compulsively watchable. Not so long ago, I saw ‘Witness for the Prosection’, another classic courtroom drama made in the 50’s and while I really enjoyed this movie as well, there was a very far-fetched twist towards the end which was rather underwhelming. Fortunately, there was no such gimmicks in the flick. Indeed, I believe it is one of the most straightforward thriller ever made and therefore, you don’t get the usual BS involved in this genre which resulted in a much more rewarding experience. Of course, you could argue that James Stewart was basically playing his typical righteous guy but it didn’t bother me whatsoever. To conclude, it is an impressive classic which completely deserves its reputation and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
