Judgment at Nuremberg
After the end of World War II, the world gradually became aware of the full extent of the war crimes perpetrated by the Third Reich. In 1948, a series of trials were held in Nuremberg, Germany, by an international tribunal, headed by American legal and military officials, with the intent of bringing to justice those guilty of crimes against humanity.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Tracy delivers a performance of great intelligence and intuition."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Most powerful for its subtle and shaded characterizations of both victim and victimizer."
‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania
"Absorbing from beginning to end."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"An eloquent snapshot of the way that the ground was shifting--in both the Nuremberg of 1948 and the Tinsel Town of 1961."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Watchable enough on its own terms, but insufferably glib next to something like Shoah."
‑ , Chicago Reader
"Important fictionalized intense courtroom drama, which at times was engrossing."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A tpical Stanley Kramer's film: Serious (even pompous) and humanist, but essentially middlebrow, courtroom drama that while well-acted is too verbose and fearful of taking sides in the controversy over who's to blame for the Nazi atrocities."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"In the grand tradition of courtroom dramas, Nuremberg has the distinction of being probably the most "important" of them all - even if it's not the most blatantly entertaining"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"There are no surprises in the direction, and Abby Mann's screenplay plays the expected tunes, but there's enough conviction on display to reward a patient spectator."
‑ , Time Out
"Abordando o complexo tema com honestidade, inteligência e humanidade, esta obra-prima repleta de atuações inesquecíveis é um atestado da capacidade do Cinema em servir não só como retrato de nossa História, mas como profunda reflexão sobre a mesma."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"A rare cinematic exploration of the messy, difficult aftermath of evaluating culpability, not only for the Nazi masterminds, but also for innumerable officials and functionaries…"
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
"A classic of post-war cinema."
‑ Ali Catterall, Film4
