Quite possibly the most riveting and masterfully filmed courtroom dramas I have ever seen. While I hear that Kramer went on to become a studio hack, he hit it out of the park here. I honestly couldn't believe that a director could utilize the space of a room in the ways that Kram...

I did not think much of Kramer's previous courtroom drama, "Inherit the Wind" which also starred Spencer Tracy. But the mere premise and ensemble starcast of "Judgment at Nuremberg" was reason enough to rent this film and give it a shot.
Inspired by true events, this fictiona...

There are two reasons to watch this movie: the all-star cast and the educational/intelligent view of WWII. These reasons weren't good enough to get a higher rating in my opinion, the movie is very long and boring. Overall a pretty good movie, it would have been better if it had...

This is not just a film. No, a film is a story that is told with a certain perspective. This story was black and white to many. Making the gray areas apparent was all in Kramer's direction, and the amazing cast. Performances by Tracy, Garland, Lancaster, and Clift stand out as mu...

Black screen and a German marching song. An overture nearly four minutes long. A three hours long film, but never overlong. A supporting and amazing cast. Some heartbreaking acting like Judy Garland as Irene Hoffman Wallner. Breathtaking. After such Nazi atrocities, all tha...

A cast of legends and an excellent screenplay made easier for Stanley Kramer to achieve such powerful and compelling courtroom drama. A film that any person should have the opportunity to watch, especially the world leaders.

I caught all but the last two minutes but I really liked it. It's full of great performances, namely from Burt Lancaster. It also asks a lot of great ethical questions as well. At a running time of about 3 hours its definitely not for everyone but a must for WWII history buffs.

Wow, Spencer Tracy, Burt Lancaster, Richard Widmark, Marlene Dietrich, Montgomery Clift, Judy Garland and even a young William Shatner are but a few people in this $3 million period epic, so I think it's safe to say that Stanley Kramer knew how to save money more than he knew how...

The movie was a bit long, but all the performaces were engaging. It really shows you there's no black and white when dealing with world war II.
