Summary: Three people attempt to bend justice for their own purposes in this drama based on the best-selling novel by John Grisham. After a man dies in a shooting incident, his wife files a lawsuit against the company that manufactured the gun, with her lawyer, Wendell Rohr (Dustin Hoffman), arguing that the firm in question knew the shop which sold the weapon was not following federal regulations pertaining to the sale of firearms. As the case goes to trial, the firearm manufacturer is taking no chances on the outcome of a potentially devastating case, and they hire as part of their legal team Rankin Fitch (Gene Hackman), a "jury consultant" who makes it his business to see that he knows enough about the jurors to be able to guarantee the result of the trial. Fitch and his team have learned incriminating secrets about nearly everyone hearing the evidence, but Fitch discovers two factors he wasn't counting upon -- Nick Easter (John Cusack), the jury member who appears to have an agenda all his own, and Marlee (Rachel Weisz), a mysterious woman who has her own plans regarding bending the jury to her will. Bruce Davison, Jeremy Piven, and Bruce McGill round out the supporting cast. Incidentally, in John Grisham's original book, the case was filed against a cigarette manufacturer, but the producers opted to adjust the story after several real-life trials against tobacco companies. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Todd Kristel

Runaway Jury is a reasonably entertaining film if you don't think about it too much. It offers relatively tight pacing, an impressive cast, and a plot that combines courtroom drama, fights, chases, and assorted cat-and-mouse games. However, you may be disappointed if you're looking for an airtight plot that doesn't strain credulity or leave any loose ends hanging, a serious exploration of the complex issues that are raised in the story, in-depth character development, or any degree of subtlety. This is a heavy-handed potboiler that demonizes the gun industry and offers only limited opportunity for its talented supporting cast to stretch their acting muscles. You do get a chance to see Gene Hackman (in his third John Grisham film adaptation) and Dustin Hoffman in their first film together, John Cusack is a good fit for the lead role, and the story is generally engaging if you don't mind the plot contrivances. But there's a lot of wasted potential in this movie. ~ Todd Kristel, Rovi
