Starring a Harrison Ford at his absolute best, "The Fugitive" is an incredible thrill movie with an equal amount of suspense and fun that is still an enjoyable classic many years later.

I always look for more humanistic qualities in a movie than i do SFX. the Fugitive is the perfect example. tommy lee jones is equally perfect as the us marshal bringing him in. The sequel was hurt only b/c it was the same movie.

Fast and furious and never a dull moment.Just a fun filled thrill ride with top notch performances from Jones and Ford.

Saw this on 4/4/15
The reason why this film has such a high rating is as strange as how Tommy Lee Jones ended up with an Oscar for the role from this film. Fugitive is an engaging, energetic thriller that so happens to be a bit overlong and predictable. Andrew Davis' direction is ordinary or above average to the maximum, just like his work in The Guardian.

Expertly crafted, consistently thrilling, and often hilarious, "The Fugitive" is a prime example of how exactly to construct a thriller film. Jones' performance as a wise-cracking marshall is pitch-perfect and Davis' direction is extraordinary; it's easy to see why it was awarded so heavily.

"The Fugitive" is a film adapted from a 1960s television series. It tells of Doctor Richard Kimble (Ford) who is accused of murdering his wife and is ruled to be killed by lethal injection. While on a train to the penitentiary, a group of convicts begin to fight around, and eventually Kimble gets free, and starts on a mission to clear his name and figure out who killed his wife.

I really enjoyed "The Fugitive." I thought it was filled with a lot of great action/chase sequences and has some surprising, stellar acting performances by both Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones, who won the 1993 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Sam Gerard. This is a well-crafted movie and one of the best films of 1993. I recommend "The Fugitive" to anyone looking for a great 90s film. 8.2/10

Before the Bourne and Taken series. There is this one film that really stuck in my mind for years. This is that film. The fugitive is about Dr. Kimble, a man who was framed up for killing his wife. After he was convicted for murder charged as guilty, and everything got intense after that. Harrison Ford is still brilliant as always. I love the chasing scenes, especially Dr. Kimble is a very smart guy, he knows how to hide, from different locations to another. He is in a world of trouble where he can play with it. Special mention to Jeroen Krabbé as the villain and Tommy Lee Jones as the cop for an amazing job portraying their roles. Awesome 90's action that will definitely be remembered. 4/5

The Fugitive is the perfect chase thriller movie. It's very intense and well made. The performances by Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones are great. he movie is perfectly tense in atmosphere, and you really start to care about the wrongly convicted Kimble as he helps other while being hunted. What appears to be a rather simple chase movie gets even better once the plot thickens and Kimble grows closer to the secret behind his wife's murder. It has some great action, intense scenes, and great direction. Perhaps a bit clichéd and a tad overlong, this is an expertly crafted and engaging thriller. The Fugitive gets 4/5 stars (A-).

Tense and smart, The Fugitive works well, thanks in a big way to the two central performances. Full review later.

Great movie with Harrsion Ford playing Dr Kimble based of an old tv serie. He gets accused for a murder he didnt commit and must find a solution before the cops found him. Tommy Lee Jones makes a fine job here as the marshal.
