  Sometimes, the opportunity to watch specific actors as they face off against one another is enough of a reason to endorse a movie. Hence, the enticing concept of the "all-star cast." "Runaway Jury," a film based on yet another lawyer-driven courtroom thriller by best-selling author John Grisham, is one of those situations where stellar players make a dubious play better. Those players — John Cusack, Gene Hackman, Dustin Hoffman and Rachel Weisz — bring legitimacy to "Runaway Jury," which is constructed around an implausible cat-and-mouse game between opponents in a high-profile New Orleans court case. The plot spins on a wrongful-death suit brought against a gun manufacturer by a woman whose husband was a murder victim. But this is no mere popcorn-muncher when you have Hackman, as a ruthless consultant on the side of the gun company, baiting Hoffman, as the opposition attorney, while Cusack, as a member of the jury, tries to control and direct his fellow jurors with the help of Weisz, as a driven, resourceful woman working in the shadows. Faster than you can say "jury-tampering," "Runaway Jury" gets preposterous. Even if the production is ultimately guilty of talent abuse, it's good sport.
