Movie Summary

Director:
Nikita Mikhalkov
Released:
2007
Rating:
PG-13
When a Chechen youth is put on trial for the murder of his stepfather, it's up to a room full of jurors divided by racism and prejudice to determine the boy's ultimate fate. One by one, each man takes center stage to confront, connect and confess while the accused awaits a verdict. Slowly the tide of opinion turns, as the jurors begin to realize their decision will forever change the course of another person's life. As they deliberate, the accused revisits his heartbreaking journey through war in a series of powerful flashbacks. Director Nikita Mikhalkov's Oscar-nominated remake of 12 Angry Men is a brilliant look at fear, trust and the triumph of human nature.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    With its thunderous drama and larger-than-life characters, which lend it a brawling energy, 12 is never dull.

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times

    There is an unnerving and hopefully implausible twist at the end, but for the most part, Mikhalkov's 12 is magnetic.

  • 80

    Variety Ronnie Scheib

    Expansively, dramatically, magnificently Russian, Nikita Mikhalkov's loose remake of "12 Angry Men" plays like vintage jazz from a veteran band.
