"...The film is cast with exemplary, unostentatious care..." Sight and Sound "...Lumet is in firm control of the sprawling canvas....Uniformly top-rate performances from a cannily-cast stable of solid character actors..." Variety "This utterly absorbing, deceptively cold, and sprawling 1981 police corruption saga is one of the pinnacles of director Sidney Lumet's career."Film Comment "[N]early three hours of disorientation and paranoia....Leuci seems to float through the film in solitude." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly46.76748

"A couple of years off 12 ANGRY MEN, director Sidney Lumet brings a similar claustrophobic intensity to the film's few locations....Magnani and Joanne Woodward deliver memorable performances..."A.V. Club "The film, riddled with fascinating dissonances as offbeat as Brando's line readings, is a valiant hymn of the peculiar and easily bruised."Film Comment "[Magnani's] magnificence -- beautiful, brittle yet immovable, eyes like proverbial shattered mirrors -- goads Brando into some of his finest work..."Sight and Sound46.50511

"...There are many fine performances and sensitive moral issues contained in [THE VERDICT]..." Variety "...Newman delivers....A clever, suspenseful, entertaining movie..." New York Times "...One of the most gripping courtroom dramas ever made..." USA Today 3 stars out of 5 -- "[The film] features a typically engaging performance from Newman..."Ultimate DVD 4 stars out of 5 - "[T]he bulk of the heavy dramatic lifting...is in the play of emotions across Newman's craggy features. Few other stars have ever had the guts to sink to this whisky-soaked low."Total Film "One of Lumet's best films, this David Mamet-scripted courtroom drama combines the liberal humanism found in the director's earlier 12 ANGRY MEN with a barbed, satirical edge."Sight and Sound46.27602

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 Post0.5872405
