Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15
Rated 5 out of 5 by decoflair Superb movie for the classroom.
I have already shown the movie to three small groups. The movie still packs a "wallop" in regard to character studies of the twelve jurors and how each personality affects the verdict in the trial.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Scootyboy2 Great Movie at a great price
I am very happy with this product and i do recommend this product to anyone looking for a nice family friendly movie. It is in Black and White but that's what makes this movie a classic.
Rated 4 out of 5 by StudentOnBudget Needed for a class
I needed this classic for a final paper for a class - the anniversary edition provided me with a reasonable way to view the movie and have a classic to add to my library
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ljnewma on my top 10 list.
I bought this as a gift for my daughter because my family loves this movie and she wanted her own copy. We much prefer this version rather to the HBO version.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jme1954 Almost a forgotten Classic
As with truly great movies like 'To Kill A Mockingbird' the number of people I know who also know this movie was 0. High courtroom drama without ever seeing a courtroom, lawyer or judge. So many well known actors who were not so well known when they were in this ensemble movie but went on to be the top of their profession. Hard to believe people would let such gold disappear just because it's in black and white.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Handico77 Twelve Angry Men
The movie Twelve Angry Men is an old black-and-white movie that was and still is considered one of the finest films ever. It is a very fine example of why we should "make sure of all things" (from the bible). The actors were also among the finest ever. Everyone can learn immensely from what this film teaches.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vetz 12 Angry Men
Who doesn't like a jury trial? If you do, you will love this movie. They just don't make movies like this any more. Henry Fonda is one of a the greats. They don't make them like Henry any more. Henry starts out as the lone stand out not gulity. He does his best to convince the other 11 jurors that a young boy did not kill his father. But going through all of the twists of evidence is a tough job for one man. You will love trying to keep up with the next bit of evidence.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ansbach 12 Angry Men 50th Anniversary Edition
This is a classic movie...made when actors actually acted and didn't depend on special effects! Given the fact that entire cast are top stars there's something here for everyone.
The overall quality is good to very good. Unfortunately, the movie briefly 'stalls' three or four times. This aside it's great to own this movie....an insight into humanity.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nitropodca Great Movie!
I read this play for the first time in the 10th grade years ago. The movie features Henry Fonda and a roster of other actors that I am not familiar with but do a fanominal job with a play brings life to what the US jury deliberation process CAN be! It is the original old black and white version, no previews that I can recall. My DVD can zoom in so I can get the DVD to appear full screen if I want it to. But I love to watch this play as I loved reading it all those years ago. It's a classic!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by FQSG Original Drama
One of the best dramas in cinematic history. Even though it takes place in one room 12 Angry Men is much better than any movies out so far. Nothing beats the classics.
Rated 4 out of 5 by ELENORE 12 ANGRY MEN
SENSATIONAL! EVERY ACTOR IN THIS MOVIE BRINGS HIS OWN CREATIVE VOICE AND EXPERIENCE TO THIS FILM. I ALSO RECOMMEND THE REMAKE FEATURING JACK LEMON, OSSIE DAVIS AND GEORGE C SCOTT. THE REMAKE IS BRILLIANT AS WELL!
