Another great courtroom drama

This John Grisham story is even more complex and farfetched than his other ones, but I fell for it anyway. It was easy to get hooked by the fine performances - from the whole cast, but with Cusack and Hackman shining particularly brightly - and the moral dilemmas on show are very interesting indeed. The New Orleans in the film feels just right and help sets the tone.

Your typical Grisham trash, implausible in its thriller plot and realistic in its legal details. More fun than some of the others, focusing less on the lawyers than on their teams, the movie is made especially enjoyable on account of the most fantastic, unbelievable element: That gun companies would ever face consequences for their bad faith, green, and immorality.

IMO the best of the Grisham adaptations. Hackman is outstanding

I guess my favourite Grisham Movie...for me, far better than The Firm and The Client, although I do love them as well. The Client for Sarandon and Tommy, The Firm for Gene, Holly and Michael, not Tom. How can you top Dustin and Gene opposing each other with DA as Here Comes The Judge.

I was actually a little bored at times, but it was decent

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. You're constantly engaged as this tale takes different twists and turns to keep you guessing. Highly recommend.

5 times thumbs up. Brilliant film making. But with humor and a bit ludicrousness, I guess.

I don't remember films this bad being made back in the day. Hammy acting, rubbish plot. There's something ludicrous about every Grisham film and this is somehow one of the worst. Ludicrous and smug, why even bother making this kind of trash?

Sure it's preposterous, but for a legal thriller you could see worse.

It'll keep you leaned forward in your chair with interest as it simultaneously shovels a unequivocally partisan message down your throat - "Runaway Jury" is a ceaselessly entertaining movie with a very sharp point to make.

The cast elevate what otherwise is a unbelievable premise.

A very good thriller based on the novel by John Grisham. This film is very entertaining from start to finish. Both Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffmann give remarkable performances. For a good suspense movie, I recommend this film.

Fair, but not as good as expected.

A legal thriller? Well I don't remeber any thrill sitting through this movie, my wife fell asleep. This should be labeled on the DVD as a political commercial for the anti-gun lobby, because that is all it really was. The plot was weak and full of giant holes, the suspense was non-existent, so what else could it be but a 2 hour commercial? Dont bother.

The premise of this movie is the only real driving factor it has. How the premise is executed is, often times, over the top to the point where it doesn't feel as real any more. Some of the scenes and dialogue could definitely be better or excluded all together as well, but nitpicking could bring any film down.

A rather clever thriller drama. Might give one a different aspect looking at the jury system after watching it. If only the jury could be controlled and manipulated like it said in the movie...

uneven legal thriller spurs by short bursts of hasty fist-fighting, and squanders a talented cast with a muss of a script. the camera constantly jumps about even when unnecessary, and it's a labyrinth of self-satisfied but crummy dialogue and bland atmosphere.
