Runaway Jury

In this legal-thriller based on the novel by John Grisham, several people involved in a court case against a gun manufacturer attempt to manipulate the jury for different reasons. Featuring a full-screen transfer that has been formatted to fit a standard television screen (a widescreen version was released simultaneously), the DVD for director Gary Fleder's Runaway Jury also allows viewers to select the original English soundtrack in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound or French and Spanish dubbed Dolby Digital Stereo tracks. Along with English, Spanish, and French subtitles, the disc boasts a number of bonus features. Offering a glimpse into the making of the film, Fleder provides optional feature-length audio commentary, while stars Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman lend their voices to shorter scene-specific commentary tracks. For additional behind-the-scenes experiences, five featurettes are included, covering such areas of production as acting, cinematography, and editing. Finally, to see what landed on the cutting room floor, viewers are treated to a selection of deleted scenes that can be played with or without audio commentary by Fleder.

If a movie is to be made based on a book, Please don't change the plot to fit your own personal agenda. If you are anti-something, at least come up with your own story and not steal someone elses.

Okay, okay, this story is both familiar and very melodramatic. But, the acting was outstanding. The performances of the three leads make up for the redundancies in the plot. This was the best acting I have seen from Dustin Hoffman in a long time. Gene Hackman is terriffic aagain as a despicable villain. As for the change from cigarrettes to guns, that is not important. I guess it was done to push emotional buttons. This is all a backdrop, the real theme is the struggle against corporate greed. Corporations will have no qualms about endangering consumers, as long as there is a profit involved.

I enjoyed this movie greatly. It held my attention all the way through. The actors were fantastic.

I'm so disappointed in this movie. For one thing, there was absolutely no point in switching it from a cigarette company to a gun manufacturer (sp?). For another, it sucked! The book was excellent, but I wouldn't pay a dime to see this movie again. A total waste of money!

Excellent cast, direction. Fast-paced. Gene Hackman makes an equally great villain or hero. Shifting to guns (from tobacco) made it more interesting.
