Audience Reviews for 12 Angry Men

The story that really grips you, and you cannot watch this Movie for long without starting to feel you are also there in that room, a part of the discussion, and not just watching a movie.

How true!

Even though it's a remake I think it's as strong as the original movie. The cast works great in this flick and brings the movie to life.
