I prefer the movie version because I prefer to watch the things, actions and characters the way they are instead of having to imagine all these the way they are not. I also like to watch the movie because this way I get a lot more concentrated than I get by reading the book.

Thoughts, actions, words: He thought that the kid might be innocent. “There were eleven votes for guilty. It's not so easy for me to raise my hand and send a boy off to die Without talking about it first.” Here we can see how this juror is brave of standing alone voting against of sending this kid to the electric chair. Also he is just, comprehensively and very intelligent. “I'm saying that it's possible that the boy lost the knife and that someone else possible”. He likes to analyze the facts stabbed his father with a similar knife. It's before saying something is true. “You're probably right.” He gives second chances to the people and listens to the ideas of all the jurors with a lot of respect. “It's not enough for me.” He doesn’t get influence easily with the ideas of the other jurors; he began being brave and ended the same way
Other feelings, thoughts, toward them: He is very strong and brave because it take a lot of courage to stand alone against 11 people points against arguing the same your thoughts. He is also very secure about himself because of the way he stands and talks. And he is also very patient.
