12 ANGRY MEN (Theatrical Release USA 1957)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

12 Angry Men—as of 2019 a 62-year old classic film—still works magic. WOW and WOW and WOW! Casting is perfect. Dialogue perfect. Tension perfect. Examination of jurors discussing a verdict and what can drive a verdict…perfect. Suspense drama film that works at the highest levels bears testament to late Director Sidney Lumet’s ability to interpret and film an outstanding script. This classic is a ‘must add’ to the family home video collection and becomes excellent family discussion material on justice and factors that may drive justice in law.


Twelve jurors attempt to come to a vote in a murder trial.
