The story of 12 Angry Men is a strong persuasive story, about todays biggest struggle between wrong and right. Its smart, creative and It shows the importance of standing up, and not being pressured into doing what others are. Jury 9 and 3, I feel made the most impact on the plot, and the theme of the story.

In conclusion, both Jury 3 and 9 where signifiant in the story 12 Angry Men. They both brought signifiant themes and plots to the story, some more important then others but each significant in its own way.

Thanks to both characters, the story was very interesting and its a story people will read for years to come, and I can guarantee
