Gary Fleder United States, 2003

Heidi Anderson's rating of the film Runaway Jury

On it's own this film is just unfortunate, but in comparison to the book it's unforgivable. The cynical, interesting characters of the book have become flat, either ridiculously heroic or villainous. Even worse the film ducks the central, controversial issue of the book.
