    you can tell at the beginning of the movie the really old man is hesitant to raise his hand for guilty he's one of the last guys to raise it so i think he had reasonable doubt since the beginning

    The sad thing is that nobody would dare make this movie today because of the all white male cast. In the 1997 remake, four of the jurors where black and the judge was a woman. How long before they make "12 Angry Women" - there is already a full-length play called this with an all female cast?

    Just finished my Jury Service in the UK and thought of this film... my case collapsed because it was split 6:6 and we told the judge none of us would change our mind so he discharged us.
    Funny thing is the 12 of us did form a close bond over the course of a week but after it was over we walked away without exchanging numbers presumably never to cross paths again

    I remember my legal teacher made us watch this film in my year 11 law class for high school. I’ve read both the play and seen this movie and in my eyes the film is one of those rare movies that is better than its original source material. Incredible piece of work that improves on the original play in every way.

    One of my favorites. The first time I saw it was on TCM. Whenever it’s on I can watch bits and pieces from it.
    May I suggest Marty with Ernest Borgnine. His Oscar winning performance will break your heart and uplift as well.

    Do The Treasure of Seirra Madre, especially if you haven't seen it. Its a classic.


    U know I think this movie should be called "The Room" to make the movie more interesting and suspenseful rather than 12 Angry Men. But I loved that too.

    I'm in 7th grade currently and my civics teacher is showing this to the class. Tomorrow we're going to finish it, there's only roughly 15 minutes left, but I still want to see the end of it. Before, I haven't really watched any movies like these but when we started getting a bit further into the movie and seeing all of these characters and their own perspectives, I just fell in love with it. It would be great to see some sort of high school play for the whole movie, it almost feels as if it was originally intended to be a play. The acting is just amazing. This movie is one of the most immersive and unique movies I have ever watched and I can see why it is so high on the rating list. A 10/10 is a very fitting rating.

    I just watched this film and holy shit it is amazing it’s one of few films that get an a+ in my opinion (Indiana Jones 1 shining fight club gladiator Shawshank redemption dark knight the good the bad and the ugly terminator 2 enter the dragon Aladdin psycho exorcist empire strikes back and Forrest Gump v for vendetta) and those are my top 17 movies that’s how good it was. It is a 10/10. And I know I’m late

    I remember watching this during my final week of AP English class!


    I first saw it at the age of 10. I was absolutely captivated the entire time. The fact that 12 people talking in a single room for 90 minutes can captivate the 10 year old me, is testament to the absolute mastery of the movie in acting, directing and writing.

    Thank you Chris for talking about this movie. It's really one of greatest cinematic masterpieces that I was exposed to when I was in highschool for a philosophy class. And it was so good, that at the end of the movie the whole class actually applauded. It's such a masterpiece of characterization, dialogue, acting, blocking, and more importantly deductive and inductive reasoning, that it is a shame not a lot of people talk about it nowadays.

    If you've never seen 12 Angry Men you're missing out on pure quality. Sure it's a product of its time with an all male nearly all White jury but if you look past that you'll see a pure grounded masterpiece.

  • Kevin Hall

    The movie asks the question of "Whats the value of human life", but only directs that question at the suspect. It dosent ask the audience the same question in terms of the victim. What about the value of a life that's been taken away? The film has the jurors make decisions not based on evidence, but instead, to not make decisions, based on guilt. It essentially says that any crime, if not witnessed by many people, and with undeniable evidence, should end in a hung jury. There's no justice for the victim in this movie. If you disagree with any of this, you should check out 12 angry men the sequel, in which the suspect kills his uncle and niece the next day.

      That's the justice system. Beyond a reasonable doubt. You don't send people to the chair because an old lady without wearing glass looking through a moving train might have seen the kid stab someone

    God, I love this film.
    Thank you so much. You're a critic so I understand that you tend to review current films. But I get addicted to watching some of these list outfits that seem to be unaware that films have been around for more than 100 years. The Best War Films, The Best Westerns, The Best Rom Coms, The Best Spy films, etc. But they seem unaware that film existed before 1980.
    So I loved this. Thank you.
    I'd love to hear your take on THE SEARCHERS.

    Agree it's perfect. There are not many films where there is really only one scene & location yet it is compelling, due to the actors involved and the acting involved. It is my second favourite film. My favourite film is 'Paper Moon'', which I consider a complete masterpiece and the way it is shot makes it not only a great film, but a work of art. '12 Angry Men' and 'Paper Moon' are cinematic heaven.

    The real problem in this movie is that Henry Fonda isn’t a juror in the movie. He is the boys lawyer on the jury. It would never fly for a juror to introduce evidence like an easily attained switchblade. It’s not the jury’s job to prove innocence. It’s their job to use evidence the lawyers presented to decide innocence.
