I really enjoyed this movie. A great cast and amazing acting. I was lucky to see it in a theater before the Netflix release. If you like law suit drama's then this is a movie for you. Based upon true events with real footage in it

This is an excellent example of using a great cast to make a good movie into a great movie.

This movie was my most anticipated one in 2020 and it did not disappoint , it was one hell of a ride. The court drama is lead by a strong cast that will win every major ensemble award , the performances are great all around , it's hard to pick a favourite really , everyone of them had that moment in the movie where it's their time to shine from the defendants to the lawyer and judge , it was brilliant . Aaron Sorkin once again wrote a phenomenal screenplay that tells the stroy of the chicago 7 boys who were charged for intiating a riot againt the police in Chicago , it's told through the eyes of every character and their believes and what really went down in the events prior to the riot which lead to a phenomenal editing for the movie . You never get bored and as the movie progresses as it dependant heavy on the dialogue you remain glued to what's happening in an entertaining manner . Strong Oscar contender and one of the best movies of the year

A mellowed out Sorkin – for the better, perhaps.

[7.9/10] It’s hard to think of a film more timely than *The Trial of the Chicago 7*. The film covers the legal definition of the incitement of a riot, internecine conflicts within movements and communities that pit pragmatism against principle, the threat of police violence especially against peop More

“The Whole Word is watching!”

The Trial of the Chicago 7 is a powerful and masterfully made court room drama. This was one of my most anticipated films of the year and I went into this with pretty high expectations. I’m a huge fan of The Social Network so I knew that I would most likely end More

Sacha Baron Cohen has now delivered my 2 favourite & memorable characters of the year in the same fortnight.

This movie is a strange incongruence. It inspired/engaged/enraged me at the same time as it made me feel flat. It could have been longer (the time flew by) and drawn out the characters More

It is important for a film to say what it wants to say correctly and to somehow overcome its claim. "The Trial of the Chicago 7" is one of these films. A coherent narrative with a perfectly acceptable script and no extra glamor. Adapting in cinema has always been a difficult task, whether from anoth More
