Critic Reviews of "Runaway Jury"Ebert & RoeperOctober 27, 2003
[T]his film ranks just below The Firm and The Client on the list of John Grisham-inspired thrillers, thumbs up.New York ObserverOctober 23, 2003
A lot of famous faces populate the courtroom in this overplotted and farfetched tale of jury-tampering, but they and the horse they rode in on are all so mired in illogical, head-scratching incoherence, they need lawyers of their own.L.A. WeeklyOctober 22, 2003
As in all his films, there's a sense that honest human emotion bores Fleder, but he gets points for packing the trial with fine character actors, all of them adept at wringing humor and poignancy from cliche.SlateOctober 22, 2003
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.Salon.comOctober 22, 2003
Fleder's direction confirms the impression left by his previous films, Don't Say a Word and Kiss the Girls among them, that he's a hack.Washington PostOctober 17, 2003
A taut, escapist legal thriller.Common Sense MediaDecember 28, 2010
Legal thriller isn't aimed at kids.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
One of the most engrossing underrated legal thrillers in years...Arkansas Democrat-GazetteJanuary 29, 2005
...the best cinematic rendering of a Grisham novel ever, which is either saying a quite lot or very little at all, depending upon your view of things Grisham.Kansas City KansanOctober 16, 2004
The film's action is limited to repeatedly ransacking Cusack's apartment, and the plot is rife with Big-Brother-is-watching paranoia.FilmFocusJuly 20, 2004
The best Grisham adaptation yet, this one is definitely worth a look.RTÉ (Ireland)February 13, 2004
A guilty pleasure for some, a waste of time for most.
