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!).

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.

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.

The Story isn't particularly interesting, as Court Room Dramas go and the main Character, whilst his part in Court proceedings is curiously humorous at times due to innocent ignorance, isn't especially interesting either.... nor the supporting Characters. It's easy going, light-hearted at times and not at all taxing... one for a rainy afternoon perhaps

This is one of those "based on a true story" films that you wouldn't believe was real. The film involves a courtroom drama as a group of individuals are brought up on various mob charges. Each one has his own lawyer, which made the courtroom full. Jackie DiNorscio (Vin Diesel_ opts to defend himself to the dismay of everyone. He starts out as a buffoon against a confident prosecutor, but as the trial drags on for over 600 days, Jackie becomes polished and the prosecutor unravels.

And of course with Vin Diesel, it's all about family (Fast and Furious mantra).

Vin Diesel stars as an Italian American alleged mob member in a courtroom drama that sees Diesel's character representing himself. The cover photo is very misleading as the film is courtroom based and Diesel actually has hair in the film. It is a true story which is what keeps you watching to find out what happens in the end otherwise it is a bit slow and very tedious especially towards the end. Diesel doesn't do straight acting very well and in a scene where his mother dies he keeps his hands over his face for the entire scene obviously because he just couldn't act it and the scene is integral to the film. Its just okay and if you are a fan of the usual Diesel action then this one is very much slower and lackluster.
