A bit slow moving but great acting and very gripping particularly the closing. The script could be improved as some of the behaviors don't seem to be plausible.

There isn't much you can to do with a courtroom drama, but Lumet and Mamet transform what is essentially standard material into something compelling and better than average. Newman does fine work as a drunken, broken down lawyer in search of redemption, while Mason is equally good as his courtroom adversary. Mamet's screenplay is well written, but it's rather simplistic, and its lack of complexity holds the film back from achieving true greatness. The performances sell it, including Warden's.

Depressing courtroom drama. Makes you feel like a distant, disinterested observer, which somehow works quite well for the subject matter. Newman and Mason are engaging. The love story and Rampling's character's betrayal appear too accessory to the goings-on in the rest of the story to have much of an impact. Has not aged very well.

Newman gives the kind of stellar performance you'd expect as an alcoholic washed-up lawyer looking for redemption in Lumet's 'The Verdict'; a largely cold and solemn courtroom drama with its only notable drawbacks being a less than genuine ending and a romantic subplot that doesn't feel quite needed.

Solid, not superlative. Newman is good, the script is good, but it dwells on ethical redemption in a morally white-washed and less nuanced manner than Lumet's best films.

Paul Newman is pretty much the best actor ever and it doesn't hurt to be directed by one of the all time greats. In a way, it's the antithesis of 12 Angry Men -- a story drenched in cynicism, shot from afar, with the actors dwarfed by their surroundings rather than taking front and center. The biggest problem -- and many legal dramas have this -- is how to include a woman in the storyline as something other than a lawyer, and it misses here. But everything else hits, and hard.

The Verdict is an interesting courtroom drama and all round it's another solid piece of filmmaking from Sidney Lumet. Paul Newman gives another fine performance as a lawyer that's down on his look and in search of redemption. As always he delivers his dialogue impeccably, but his facial expressions and body language play an integral part here also. James Mason is a worthy mention too. There's no doubting this films quality, but it's heavily reliant on and elevated by Paul Newman's performance.
