12 Angry Men really shows the power a single film can have (and not in the "I just ejaculated over a girl's boobies" sort of way). Henry Fonda was obsessed with producing, and starring, in this picture. It reveals the injustices of our "justice" system, and how things aren't always as clear as they first appear to be. The wonderful Sidney Lumet directed the film, which also featured superb actors such as Ed Begley, Jack Klugman, and a bunch of other old guys that are probably dead now. The film is literally still as relevant today as it was in 1957, when it was released. The Showtime remake starring Jack Lemmon was an almost word-for-word remake of the original, yet it lost some of the spark. Do not miss this one. And for you idiots that think everyone accused of being guilty ARE actually guilty, well, you've got another thing comin'.
I'd give it 10 Juicy squirts out of a possible 10
