My Opinion of 12 Angry Men
In my opinion 12 Angry Men is a wonderful play and movie. I loved reading the script in class. I liked the play because of all the wonderful twists. And because juror eight sends a good message because he stood up for what he believed in and I respect that.
Juror eight votes not guilty but he´s the only one.
All the jurors are sick of being in the hot cramped court room and just want to go home!
All the jurors vote guilty. Juror eight stands alone.
