The initial scene of this movie set the whole logical thinking process the Judge advising the jury of their responsibilities in reaching a decision Their decision would eventually determine the young boys fate whether he is to be acquitted or found guilty and sentenced to death As the jury retreated to the deliberation room the camera closes in on a young scared defendant who had the look in his eyes that he hadnt slept in several days The next scene as the jury gathers in the deliberation room clearly shows that it is a miserably hot and humid day which will eventually lead to the men being irritated and not thinking clearly As the initial vote is made juror number five is the only standout voting not guilty to the disbelief of the other eleven jurors This begins a long process of critical thinking and logical deduction Most apparently number five is the only juror who understands the logic of the law and the importance of thinking his decision out clearly If he decides wrong then he has either sentenced an innocent man to death or freed a murder This is too much for him to decide in just a few minutes without discussion As the movie progresses we learn about the other jurors and their personalities backgrounds and prejudices From the old man who speaks of wisdom in his later years to the man who grew up in the slums to the bigot who thinks that all people like the defendant are guilty to the advertising executive all of their personalities and backgrounds show their way of thinking Only number five the architect is the only one who thinks logically and thoroughly As number five realizes there cannot be any doubt in their minds on a verdict he reaches several jurors in the beginning and gives them some reason to doubt the validity of the evidence presented by the prosecution
