    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. 14 years 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. 13 years 5 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.
