A Jury of Stellar Peers
3 July 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A remake as powerful and compelling as the original film with Henry Fonda and Lee J. Cobb, the 1997 made for cable version directed by William Friedkin is a superb production. I had felt remakes of classic films to be an unpleasant experience and less than satisfactory. However, this contemporary production featuring Jack Lemmon, George C. Scott, Ossie Davis, Hume Cronin, Armund Mueller-Stahl, Courtney B. Vance, Dorian Harwood and Tony Danza, brings the notion of ensemble acting to the level of fine art. This is a production that updates the superior original film with its all white cast to the present with mixed race actors, each of whom shades the interpretation of their dialogue as members of the multitude of ethnicities, nationalities, creeds, ages, and ideologies that comprise modern American society.

In finely tuned performances which brings vitality to the story of men locked in life-altering judgement of a young man accused of patricide, the cast performs with give and take of mature actors, each of whom is capable of holding the screen individually. Director Friedkin moves his camera about the small room and foregoes the dramatic closeups of the previous Lumet version which allows the actors to use their entire bodies to threaten, cajole, harass, or implore other jurors as each man argues for a guilty or innocent judgement. While the original film is worthy of all praise, Friedkin has created a film equal to the original, if not better. If nothing, the film is a joy for the performances of the late Scott and Lemon. Overbearing or subtle, their binary oppositional positions in the jury room are a dramatic ballet by great actors giving outstanding performances that we can savor and mourn for having lost them far too early. Twelve Angry Men is a superior remake of an outstanding original film. A keeper.
