The film is based on a real-life court-room drama which with many 'Mob' members
on trial at the same time became one of the longest-running trials in U.S history.
Most of what you'll see is based on a factual account of proceedings.
'Jack Dinorcio' (Vin Diesel) is offered, by the chief prosecutor a way-out if he
testifies against the members of 'The Mob' who he looks upon as 'Family' and 'Friends'
'Jack' refuses to do so.
Despite absolutely no legal or procedural knowledge or experience 'Jack' decides to
defend himself, all other members of the 'Mob' do have legal representation on board.
His decision often brings him in contempt of court during the early part of this
long-running trial, however his unorthodox approach does have an effect on the overall
outcome,
The film often intense, sometimes amusing, is a really enjoyable watch.
We are more used to seeing 'Vin Diesel' in movies such as 'Riddick' and the 'Fast and
Furious' saga, this film shows him in a completely different light however.
( Took a while to get used too seeing 'Vin Diesel' with hair)
A REALLY GOOD MOVIE.....Not to be missed.
'Special features' ...'The making of Find Me Guilty'.....Interviews with the cast and
crew.

Okay, if you’re a fan of Vin Diesel you’ll probably be expecting him to do his usual busting heads and driving fast cars routine. However, I get the impression he took this film for the reason that it doesn’t include any of that.

In fact, 99% of the film is set entirely in the courtroom. ‘Find me Guilty’ is based on a true story of the longest Mafia trial in American history and Vin Diesel plays the man accused of... well, pretty much every crime going. He decides to represent himself and what follows is everything from black comedy to drama.

If you like Vin Diesel, you’ll probably think that this film proves that he’s a real actor and is more than just a hard man who can punch people. He is the highlight of the film, however, if you don’t like him, you – like a fair few other detractors on the Internet – will pour scorn on his performance.

I’m no die hard fan of Vin Diesel, but I thought he did really well as the fast-talking gangster accuse due to spend the rest of his life behind bars. It’s one of those films that I enjoyed watching, but, based on the fact that the whole film is just people talking, I’m not sure I’d want to watch it again for quite a while.

Action-packed, it is not. But fair play to Vin Diesel for trying to do more than just be cool (even if his hair piece is a little off-putting!).

The film I found a little slow, but the thing that impressed me about this film is Vin Diesel's performance. He took the lead role and turned it into a one man show, he more that proved that he is more that just an action star. If the film it's self was a little faster paced or even with a little more action in it, or possible even if I liked any of the other characters I would have given this 4 stars. A very watchable film, and if you are a Diesel fan it will is worth seeing as it show there is more to him as an actor.

Firstly, ignore the cover picture as it's completely misleading. Vin Diesel doesn't even look like this in the movie and the picture almost promises a more usual gangster film. I was engrossed from the moment the film began with Lois Prima singing..... There are plenty of plot comments, so I don't think I need to fill anyone in on the storyline or the origins of this movie. What I do want to comment on though, is the fantastic standard of acting throughout. Everyone expects Vin Diesel to be this one dimensional "hard man" character with a stock set of acting skills. This (like most of his other movies actually) confirms that Mr Diesel is a very talented actor. My personal "good actor" gauge is a simple one, not based on anything other than: when I'm watching him act, do I see Diesel or do I see the guy he's portraying? from the get go, I saw the character and couldn't help loving the guy!! Everyone keeps banging on about the fact that he had hair in this film. Because I didn't see him as Vin Diesel, I couldn't really see what the issue was? surely that's the whole point of playing a part.....crikey, what would the mad hatter have been if they'd just had him looking liken johnny depp usually does?!
Good Movie, excellent cast. All of em'! definitely a keeper in my DVD collection. It's a shame that Vin doesn't get offered more varied roles like this one. I like pretty much all of his work but he's got alot of untapped variety which I'd love to see more of. C'mon hollywood, it's about time you stopped stereotyping your actors. I'd like to see even more of Mr Diesel's ability.

While I enjoyed both the movie and Vin Diesel's performance it was just okay. The movie had it's funny moments and I think he played the role well but their wasn't much character development so while watching the court case I didn't really care much what happened to anyone. I felt more like I was watching a comedy that was a bit light in laughs. That being said my wife and I both watched it to the end and had nothing particularly bad to say about it. Not sure I'd recommend this movie to anyone but it killed an hour and a half.
