Too few films take on the art of arguing as a subject; we could certainly use more of them, but until then, Lumet's window into strained civic duty will continue to serve mightily.

Mechanically written, but within its own middlebrow limitations, it delivers the goods.

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.

This is a film where tension comes from personality conflict, dialogue and body language, not action.
