Another extremely important aspect of film is conflict, without an interesting conflict a film becomes uninteresting. Of course there is the classic good versus evil conflict, but in 12 Angry Men the conflict seems to be more along the lines of just versus unjust. There is no real good versus evil scenario because all of the conflict in the movie revolves around discussion of a court case, and no character can be classified as evil (not even jurors number ten or four). Inverter less, this movie definitely had its share of conflict.

In the beginning of the movie the conflict is between Henry Fond’s character and the other eleven jurors as to whether there is enough evidence to convict, and ultimately putt death, a young man. As the movie contain uses we begin to see other more subtle conflicts arise. One of these subtle or inner conflicts is shown in the scene where juror number four talks about “kids these ; and tells the others of the scuffle between he and his son.

Although with this conflict we see no actual resolution it is assumed that by voting not guilty he is in fact letting go of this hatred awards young people and forgiving his son. The same assumption can be made for juror number ten who gives a speech about referring to minorities, revealing his racist beliefs. By voting not guilty it can be assumed that he is dismissing his racist beliefs. In the end of the movie the major conflict is resolved, the boy is found not guilty. To conclude, 12 Angry Men uses strong characterization due to its lack of special effects and because the virtually the entire film is shot in the same small room.
