Runaway Jury, a free adaptation of John Grisham's 1996 novel about jury tampering, has a smart - and white-hot - commercial idea. It grafts the cutting-edge surveillance techniques of espionage thrillers like Enemy of the State onto a controversy-laced courtroom drama. Even audiences accustomed to super-spy technology in CIA films should snap to attention at the spectacle of high-tech bugs corrupting a civic sacrament like jury duty in that gumbo melting-pot New Orleans. The director, Gary Fleder(Kiss the Girls, Don't Say a Word)

Watch Lance Coadie Williams' hands as he portrays Hamlet, and you get a good idea of what's going on in his character's head. When first confronted by his father's ghost, Williams raises a hand, as if to shelter himself from the ghost's horrible revelation of "murder most foul." In subsequent scenes, Hamlet again lifts a hand to his head, but not as a shield. Instead, he rubs his head as if trying to come to grips with - or perhaps expunge - the awful knowledge of his father's assassination, his uncle's guilt and his own role as avenger.

Rated R (language, some violence). Sun score: ** 1/2 Heist is like an improved and streamlined version of last summer's The Score: The writer-director, David Mamet, doesn't even want The to slow down his title. Gene Hackman stars as the canny thief who leads a lean, efficient crew including a stalwart partner (Delroy Lindo), an ace odd-job guy (Ricky Jay) and sometimes his svelte young wife (Rebecca Pidgeon). When his financier and fence (Danny DeVito) reneges on a pay-off unless Hackman's crew pulls another job, the screen is set for a game of cat and mouse.
