Critic Reviews of "12 Angry Men"Time OutJuly 03, 2013
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.VarietyJune 30, 2008
The film leaves a tremendous impact.Chicago ReaderJune 26, 2007
Mechanically written, but within its own middlebrow limitations, it delivers the goods.Time OutJune 24, 2006
A strangely realistic thriller.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
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.Chicago Sun-TimesNovember 19, 2002
This is a film where tension comes from personality conflict, dialogue and body language, not action.CineVueMay 26, 2017
In the 60 years since its release, Sidney Lumet's masterpiece has lost none of its impact. In this age of unreason, 12 Angry Men remains sorely and urgently contemporary.Cinemaphile.orgMay 24, 2016
With each new viewing I come away feelings as if I have peeled away another layer on the characters and their buried motives.CinePassionAugust 26, 2015

...the film has aged surprisingly well in the years since its 1957 release.CinemaniaAugust 29, 2013
There is real value is how it allows each member of the cultural mosaic of a jury to develop into distinct, damaged, and interesting charactersSlant MagazineJune 30, 2013
The film takes a confined, almost completely banal real-world location and makes it completely dynamic, using incredibly nimble camera movements to establish character motivation and theme.
