Did You Know?


For the second time George C. Scott plays a character originated by Lee J. Cobb. Cobb in 12 Angry Men (1957) and Scott in this remake both play Juror #3; and Cobb played Lt. Kinderman in The Exorcist (1973) (directed by 'Friedkin, William', like this film), as did Scott in the sequel The Exorcist III (1990). See more »

Jury duty will never be the same again!!
9 January 2000 | by (Allentown, Pa) – See all my reviews

"12 Angry Men '97" is one of the few examples that a remake can be just as great as the original. This version of the 1957 drama is awesome. It had the same tension and verbal action as its predessor, but with more familiar characters and even color! Jack Lemmon replaces Henry Fonda as the good juror #8, the late great George C. Scott succeeds Lee J. Cobb as the hate-filled juror #3, and Mykelti Williamson takes a really good turn as the nasty juror #10 (he's sure as hell not looking for "shrimp" in this flick, if you know what I mean! And check out his cool hat! He looks like a younger Jim Brown). Each member of this jury take their tolls as they all argue over the life of a teen who is accused of murdering his father with switchblade. And each of them would like to leave the stuffy jury room!

Unlike the original, "12 Angry Men '97" is more modernized; for example, instead of electric fans, an air conditioner cools down the hot temperature of the room, and the jury isn't an all-white ensemble, but a multi-ethnic group. That's why I like this version better because there isn't a lot of racial boundaries to go over here, unlike in the original.
