4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] riveting Russian redo of the Reginald Rose teleplay 12 ANGRY MEN, first brought to theaters in 1957 as the big-screen helming debut of Sidney Lumet."Box Office "In 12, Nikita Mikhalkov's grandiloquent remake of 12 ANGRY MEN, the elements of that modest courtroom classic have been enlarged to operatic dimensions....It is consistently entertaining..."New York Times "The power of the scenes lies in the actors....Mikhalkov's 12 is magnetic....The men are just as angry as they were in Lumet's day and the debate as passionately raucous as Russian literary tradition would demand."Los Angeles Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "12 by Nikita Mikhalkov is a powerful new film inspired by a powerful older one....There is not a weak member in the cast, and it's a tribute to the power of the actors that the 2 1/2-hour running time doesn't seem labored."Chicago Sun-Times "Nikita Mikhalkov's 12 breathes and floats. It allows itself ample space to reimagine Reginald Rose's original stage play about a jury that deadlocks over a murder case."Washington Post17.7269
