A Masterstroke Movie - Twelve Angry Men 1957 Reviewed

Updated on April 24, 2011

Twelve Angry Men was released in 1957 and I watched this movie a few days back.

The story is about an 18-year-old boy who has been caught murdering his father and he leaves behind enough evidence to prove that he is guilty. Now it is up to the 12 jury members to decide whether he is guilty or not. What an interesting plot it is? Isn't it?

I mean that if the above-mentioned plot detail does not excites you enough, then nothing will. Just by reading this, I would have gone crazy over watching the film because it would be really interesting to see how a jury, where numerous people with different opinions and characters, would react to such a situation where they have to come up with an unanimous decision. Whoever thought of such a concept and executing it without a flaw deserves a standing ovation.

There is voting done by the juries and many things which will make your mind puzzle. The court proceedings in this movie are really awesome to watch. It shows how different minds work in different directions to come up to one single conclusion. This movie is meant for critical thinking class.

Every small detail of the story is covered up with so much enthusiasm that you get totally involved with the proceedings.

I know everyone still needs time to get out from the experience which Dark Knight provided but if you have time, please do catch this Sidney Lumet directed film. Its really worth watching..........

A masterstroke in storytelling and writing. Great movie.

Buy 12 angry men DVD at Amazon

      One of my favourite American films. For all the world the guy looks guilty. He must have had the worst lawyer in the world defending him because Fonda's character had to argue against the prosecution.

      Yes Brad I really agree with you it is a real shame that movies today are just to show up sex scenes, action, fight, etc. People only want masala from the movies. I think what movies like "Twelve Angry Men" have contributed to the Hollywood and cinema all over the world cannot be replaced.

      12 Angry Men is a classic and a great movie. I first watched it in Middle School and really enjoyed the story. It is a shame that most of today's movies don't even come close to stacking up with older movies.
