Find Me Guilty

Movies-crime-dramas-find-me-guilty-vin-diesel-courtroom-posters-668487104229 Director/writer Sidney Lumet comes full circle on a distinguished career punctuated by powerful films concerned with America’s legal system ("12 Angry Men," "Serpico," "The Verdict"). Vin Diesel reveals his convincing acting abilities as Lucchese crime family mobster Giacomo "Jackie Dee" DiNorscio in Lumet’s brisk courtroom drama about the longest criminal trial in U.S. history. If watching a jury disregard mountains of damning evidence in favor of a charismatic gangster who calls himself a "gagster" seems a morally challenging proposition, well that’s all part of the bargain in Lumet’s topical drama.

Rated R. 124 mins. (B-) (Two Stars)
