    Paul Newman's best performance. This film is mesmerizing, maybe the best courtroom drama of all time. Sidney Lumet is a genius, an underrated director. 12 years 6 months ago

    Really great movie, and i totally agree with tigh66, what a stunning performance by Newman! But there are some flaws in the storyline which prevents it from being one of the best. But still, Newman is fantastic. 11 years 10 months ago

    Judge Hoyle: Frank, what would you and your client take - right now, this very minute - to walk out of here, let this damn thing drop?
    Frank Galvin: My client can't walk, your honor.
