Not sure what movie the other reviewers watched, but both my SO and I enjoyed this movie immenensely. Well acted, well directed, and well executed.
The fact it goes "morally conscious" at the end of the movie, didn't detract from the experience at all, no matter what I think about gun control. It wasn't ABOUT that, it was about the story, which was great to watch unfold.

I always wanted this movie in HD! A real mistery movie, unfortunately one can guess the final by the middle of the movie.

Runaway Jury seemed from the trailers to be a nail-biting thriller with huge caliber acting talent. Although John Cusack, Gene Hackman, and Dustin Hoffman turn in great performances, the movie falls on its face. Any soundtrack seems non-existent. There is not much suspense. Cusack's girlfriend, the main female character, is completely cold and unsympathetic. She does not have an ounce of warmth in her body. And she is supposed to be someone you root for through the whole film. I wanted her to get her comeuppance, but unfortunately she did not. The movie ended up being a preachy film about gun control.
The opening sequence is one of the best I have ever seen. If only the rest of the movie was as good as the first five minutes.

Format: DVD
Minds numbing adaptation to the John Grisham novel lacks his artistic punch and flare for justice and replaces it with a typical Hollywood movie that caters to speculation other than fact. The script has too many holes to be considered a passable story, and while the direction is decent, it lacks a real sense of depth. The acting on the other hand is good with Rachel Weisz and Gene Hackman making this film much better than it deserved to be with their very good performances, and Dustin Hoffman is fine as well but he's not in the movie as much. John Cusack is decent and the rest of the cast makes due but the movie does not do them or the viewer any justice in terms of storytelling.
Thanks to Weisz, Hackman, and Hoffman, the movie makes a fine rental, but its only good for a few good moments.

Having read the book, I can say that the book was much better than the movie. The movie changed the premise from Big Tobacco to Gun Control - which in my opinion completely changed the look and feel of the story.
If you are interested in the story then I suggest the book or audio book - but in my opinion the movie is worthless. Both the story and acting within the movie are marginal at best. Hackman delivers a decent perfomance, but John Cusack delivers a subpar performance and is unbelievable in portraying his role as the maverick juror #9.

Weak adaptation to the book of the same name forgoes the legal jargon and just dumb down the plot for a simpletons version of the law. Only Gene Hackman and Rachel Weisz do well with the weak material given because they at least look like they are trying to make an effort to give more than the film want to give but not even their great acting talents can save this movie from itself.
Avoid.

I thought the movie was pretty good. I didn't expect too much from it because of the "typical revenge movie" tag that seemed to be hanging over it. However, Cusack continues to do an outstanding job as of late. I like the movie just because I'm not a 100% supporter of the gun industry anyway. We all can dream a little of one day someone holding the actual gun companies personally responsible for their guns, what they can do, and who uses them. Honestly, who the hell needs an automatic machine gun to shoot a rabbit? Good movie.
