The Verdict
1982
A washed-up, ambulance-chasing attorney gets a chance at redemption when his friend tosses him an open-and-shut medical malpractice case. But instead of accepting an easy cash settlement, he takes the powerful defendant to court.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

Paul Newman and the rest of the cast have a strong feel for their characters. But the story is utterly predictable. Maybe this became the model for every against-all-odds courtroom redemption movie over the three decades since? R.I.P. Sidney Lumet.
