The Verdict features a story we have seen a hundred times before, the one where our main character is a lawyer who needs a big case win to save his career. The interesting part of the whole story is the subject matter isn’t what we’ve come to see in other movies. Yes medical malpractice is always the topic, but this case is really special and brings a whole new level of drama to the court room. Paul Newman gives a great performance here, which shows off his amazing versatility as one of Hollywood’s greatest actors.
