Editorial Reviews

He's guilty of murder. The feds have him dead to rights. At last there's no escape for this mob boss, a "Teflon Don" who has slipped free of murder raps so many times before. But something goes wrong in the jury room. Eleven jurors vote guilty. One woman, her life and family threatened by the mob, votes to let the killer walk. And to set things right, that woman will have to fight back with a vengeance.

In Trial by Jury, Joanne Whalley-Kilmer (Scarlett) plays Valerie Alston, a dutiful juror thrust into a nightmare...and forced by her plight to discover hidden resources she never suspected she had. Armand Assante (The Mambo Kings) is the gangster who vows death to Valerie and her son if she votes "guilty." William Hurt (Body Heat) as a cop turned mob lowlife and Gabriel Byrne (Point of No Return) as a zealous prosecutor add to the excitement of this fast-paced action thriller.

More often that not, I'll call a movie overrated, but this one, I think, is underrated. It features solid acting and a very involving story. I'm sorry there are less than 10 reviews here by 2009. I guess most people don't share my high opinion of this film.

There isn't as much violence as most modern-day crime movies and that's fine because this story doesn't need it. The profanity is also lower-than-normal. All that's missing is better cinematography.

Joanne Whalley-Kilmer, Armand Assante, Gabriel Byrne and William Hurt all make this interesting and provide good performances. This is a good "date movie," too. It's tense, yet without a ton of the usual overdone violence and profanity.

Better than average performances by all the players. Kathleen Quinlin does a great job playing a part that is very far-afield from most of the parts I have seen her play. The gorefest in the park is a little unbelievable, but played well. Stuart Whitman was a sight for sore eyes as the father. Gabriel Byrne is believable and stellar as the prosecutor, very good, prosecutorial charisma, etc. I should have seen the movie when it was first released to get the full enjoyment of what were then, very elegant women's costuming. These outfits are slightly humorous in retrospect. It is still a very entertaining movie.

Amazing what a human being can be capable of doing when driven to desperate situations. How innocense can be lost when forced to extremes. Man's inner survival and killer instinct can be tapped into when cornered in inescapable situations. The movie showed me that at a driven situation I can do things that may have never crossed my mind. I can bring forth power from within though I may be a weakling. The movie was much better than I expected, am glad I bought it. Great performances.

I discovered this film while searching for laserdiscs. It's a good way to find forgotten gems. TBJ is a crime film that never becomes tiresome mostly due to a fantastic emotionally alluring portrayal of a single mom by Joanne Whalley. She's your average girl stuck in a mess with a megalomaniac king pin. Fortunately for the viewer her body is not average, giving her character that added, "I don't know I'm sexy" vibe. Armand Assante turns in a great performance as he easily puts out charm and terror with a simple stoic glance. The root of the film which is the two worlds colliding, gets delivered with believability.

The real gritty hoots of the film are William Hurt playing a twisted x cop that still has remnants of good in him and the ever delectable Kathleen Quinlan as a quirky sot. I really liked the script. The seedy undercurrent feel that the film has is captured with words that give an inner chuckle and a solid outer grimace. Some courtroom antics are quite stagey but those scenes can be muscled through if you like the genre. TBJ is not a routine crime thriller and throws some very interesting entertainment punches.

A well-acted film. Whaley-Kilmer gives a fine performance throughout a story that holds one's interest. This is a well-written, well-directed and well-acted picture by all appearing in it. Strong casting. I've seen it several times over a period of years and enjoyed watching it. It shows rather vividly what a mother is willing to do to protect her child, and how far she will go to rid herself of a genuine threat.

I should have followed my instinct to turn the movie off halfway through. The film was surprising only for its bad writing and lack of suspense (think "Movie of the Week" production of a so-so novel). Joanne Whalley, Armand Assante and Gabriel Byrne are all excellent actors who are completely wasted in these roles. The characters are throroughly uninteresting stereotypes and the finale is simply absurd.
The only redeeming quality in this mess of a film was the role played by John Hurt. He turns in a solid performance as the drunken, ex-cop on the mob payroll who can't bring himself to be the evil thug he's paid to be. However, that role alone doesn't even come close to redeeming the movie as a whole.
The DVD itself has no extras except for the movie's trailer so you're not missing anything special there. Frankly, I'd recommend 'The Juror' instead. That movie has a similar plot, and flaws of its own, but at least I didn't feel cheated when it ended.
