As I said before, gotta love the classics! Riveting scriptwriting, acting and camera work, and the point of the film still needs to be made. (There are of course those moments of overt theatricality that would not happen during an actual jury deliberation, and some "stunts" that would probably not even be allowed. Both are easily ignored as the drama of the film unfolds.) One could say, as they do in the special features, that this seemingly actionless story of twelve men in one room is one of the great thrillers of all time.
