People that don`t understand legal jargon will still like this film. I don`t really like films that take place in a court room, but I still enjoyed this film. The actos are great, and the story between the jury and the case is pretty good.
It`s too bad that they decided to throw in some gratuitous violence. That wasn`t in the book. The book was so well written and clever -- they should have tried to stick to that instead of changing things that didn`t need to be changed. Disappointing. I don`t know why they don`t let Grisham screenwrite his own books -- when other people get hold of it, they ruin it.
A powerful movie played out through a balance of none of the actors assuming centre stage (superb acting when all of the all star cast know how to take secondary roles to the film itself), also there was a very subtle development of a significant subplot; activism vs/ soft terrorism which reveals what is on America`s mind. This film opens dialogue on not the tried and true perception that justice is blind but rather that our perceptions of justice are blind and this is exampled by the blind juror. A searing portrait of perception in group dynamics and about the true nature of change - in that change takes time; ten years or more to effect cha
This was an exceptionally well-directed, performed movie, and I am sure when I saw it some time ago, that I wondered if one of the actors was Jennifer Beals; was she the young widow? -- Which character did she play?
Who produced this movie, Michael Moore?? Why couldn`t they just leave it alone and follow the book which was about tobacco companies? This is shamelessly an anti-gun advertisement and probably has gun control advocates accross the country drooling all over themselves at the prospect of being able to hold a gun maker lible for somebody using one of their guns for malice. If you make the leap that guns kill people rather than people killing people then you also have to make the leap that cars, food, forks, spoons, and any other inanimate object kills people. Apparently if we follow the gun control lobby ROE for all other inanimate objects t
Awesome movie. I am recommending it to everyone!!!
Absolutely the best movie I have seen since `Green Mile`. Ingenious plot twist,incredible acting,and takes the thought of jury tampering to an all new level.Soooo believable !!!
my friend and i both enjoyed the movie immensely. i would give it ***** rating!!!! it was very well done!! :)
great movie i loved it from start 2 finish.well done 2 everyone that made the movie.
slow and boring!
awesome plot twist
was very pleased with the movie. the ending was not as i expected.
Great movie & ending, keeps you on the edge of your seat.
I thought that it was an excellent movie, John Cusack is the MAN!!
Excellent thriller. Well-paced with lots of twists and turns. The cast is just phenomenal. Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman steal the show, but John Cusack and Rachel Weisz were great too. If you crave an intelligent script that actually has something meaningful to say, backed up with powerhouse acting, then you can`t afford to miss Runaway Jury.
It was a bit long, but pretty good otherwise
read the book and this didn`t quite measure up. i did enjoy the twists (although i did know they were coming).
hey people, 1 star is bad, learn how to rate.
Interesting storyline with many twists, but with a predictable ending.
Runaway Jury is Provacotive and nothing would be without it, without the cast
Great Twists and turns makes this movie a MUST SEE !
One of the best Hollywood film I`ve seen in a long time...
Excellent movie! It was rated a drama but it was more of a thriller than Mystic River was. The plot was great with a real twist at the end. I highly recommend it!
Great story line, lot`s of twists!!!! Almost better than the Firm
