About the Movie
A hot, muggy New York City... Twelve white-male jurors try to reach a verdict in a murder trial--a case involving a Puerto Rican teenager from the slums who is accused of knifing his father to death. Eleven jurors agree that the defendant is guilty...but one man, believing the boy is innocent, sets out to convince the other jurors he's right by building a case for acquittal. Based on a television play by Reginald Rose.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Although it may sound ungallant, these 12 Angry Men, are all right without distaff glamour. Their dramas are powerful and provocative enough to keep a viewer spellbound.
Fresh: The film leaves a tremendous impact.
Fresh: This is a film where tension comes from personality conflict, dialogue and body language, not action.
Fresh: Mechanically written, but within its own middlebrow limitations, it delivers the goods.
one of the best films ever.
Whether it be the wonderful performance from Fonda or the riveting suspense, 12 Angry Men is a court thriller that will get you thinking about more than just "is he guilty". It'll have you questioning your own morality. One of the best I've ever seen.
