From master storyteller John Grisham and the director of Don't Say A Word comes a taut suspense-thriller that "grabs hold of you and never lets go" (Philadelphia Metro). In their first film together, screen legends Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman face off in this electrifying nail-biter about a ruthless jury consultant who'll do anything to win. With lives and millions of dollars at stake, the fixer plays a deadly cat-and-mouse game with a jury member (John Cusack) and a mysterious woman (Rachel Weisz) who offer to "deliver" the verdict to the highest bidder. Packed with danger, intrigue and pulse-pounding twists and turns, Runaway Jury rules!

Cast & Crew
[T]his film ranks just below The Firm and The Client on the list of John Grisham-inspired thrillers, thumbs up.
In spite of its cheesy plot twists, thoroughly second-rate direction, and criminally wasted ensemble, Runaway Jury adds up to a nice little gotcha! courtroom melodrama.
A taut, escapist legal thriller.
Efficient, precise, carefully calibrated and terrifically entertaining.
Runaway Jury hooks the audience, and after 10 minutes there's no looking back.
An enjoyable way to burn up a couple of hours.
