If watching a jury disregard mountains of damning evidence in favor of a charismatic gangster who calls himself a "gagster" seems a morally challenging proposition, well that's all part of the bargain in Lumet's topical drama.

DVD Review

What on the surface seems like a regular court drama with a little humor thrown in for good measure actually works as a wicked satire on the American judicial system.

Could not be more relevant at a repressive time in US history when the erosion and abuse of civil rights of those presumed guilty is nearly as big an issue as the plight of the innocent.

Manages to crackle along in lively fits and starts of nasty profanity and very bad but all too credible behavior.

Lumet orchestrates the machinations with the confidence of a master, but even he cannot quite manage to sustain the interest for the protracted arguments to run their course.

...more reminiscent of a glorified Perry Mason episode than a return to form for the filmmaker.

We could have done just as well to watch the proceedings on Court TV -- free, as it were, to flip channels or get up for a snack and skip the parts that disinterest us, rather than be held hostage by 125 minutes of drive-by clichés.

as everyone knows, putting a self-serious egomaniacal movie star in a bad hairpiece is comedy gold.

Find Me Guilty, like the justice system it portrays, ultimately works a great deal better than you might expect.

The best way to enjoy Find Me Guilty is to view it as an indictment of the jury system.

Las Vegas Review-Journal

In Find Me Guilty, the teller counts at least as much as the tale. And, in director Sidney Lumet, Find Me Guilty, has a master storyteller spinning the yarn.

An entertaining, true-life, comedy-drama saga of a nearly endless mob trial.

It's hard to do anything in court that hasn't been done before. It's a static situation, and points are scored in tiny increments. No big witness-stand breakdowns, no tearful confessions. Thus, boredom creeps in.

While it delivers a few good laughs, the film is short on drama and suspense.

If you didn't know you were watching Vin Diesel in Find Me Guilty, you wouldn't know you were watching Vin Diesel. And that's a compliment.

You won't feel uplifted, and you won't have any faith in the American justice system after watching its wheels grind to a halt, then start turning the wrong way. But you won't be bored.

Vin Diesel has seldom been more likable... [but] the movie itself feels like jury duty.

This guilty pleasure holds our interest as it chides our country's justice system and honors the celebrity status of the American mafia.

A clear case of not enough gas and too much Diesel, who should have copped a plea of overreaching in the third degree.
