Movie Review by Ryan Midnight
January 31st, 2007

Twelve jurors find themselves with an eleven-to-one guilty verdict in a murder trial as this post-courtroom drama opens up. Henry Fonda is Juror #8, who does an astonishing job as the one who has reasonable doubt, and faces the other jurors who would rather get the job done quickly and get on with their lives. As the evidence is inspected once again, doubt begins to creep into some of minds of the jurors, and what was once so clearly defining evidence, starts to crumble away. Tension mounts, as others start to side with Juror #8, until only one juror is left unconvinced. As the clock grows closer to the time the jurors have set to decide, they will have a hung jury unless they can rule in unison on the teenager's fate. This powerful drama, which was originally a written as a teleplay in 1954, is brilliantly brought to the silver screen by an amazing ensemble cast, and with the help of a razor sharp script, was deservedly nominated for four Oscars including best picture.
