Storyline

Jury has to decide on a murder case but some of the jurors have their own agendas or are biased. Sounds like '12 Angry Men' but this is not a remake. It's a totally fresh take on the theme. Totally different case, for example. There is no question about the identity of the culprit, the jury has to decide between manslaughter and murder. Written by Holger Hellmuth <hellmuth@ira.uka.de>

Compelling even if it was shot in Toronto USA
23 April 2005 | by (Bracebridge Ont) – See all my reviews

I'm biased. I like good courtroom dramas. This is a good one. But it also gives a tremendous insight into what really goes on in the jury room. Fully half the film covers the jury deliberations yet it does not drag for a moment. I have one large complaint and that is the fact that Toronto again has allowed itself to be prostituted as the setting for an American city. Toronto's pretensions of being a "world class city" are worthless so long as this sort of cinematic pimping continues. Is there any other major city in the world (outside Canada) that demeans itself in this manner. London is always London. New York is New York. But Toronto invariably is Cincinatti or Boston. It's especially upsetting since CTV was one of the backers of this movie. It's especially obscene to see the US flag flying in front of the Canadian Government offices on Front Street. Having said that, it's still a compelling movie, well scripted and well produced with some excellent performances
