If you can get past the naked exploitation of this mercenary sequel, U.S. Marshals is a sort of brain-rotting kind of fun (how's that for an endorsement?). [Blu-ray]

Audience Reviews for U.S. Marshals

I've never seen the Fugitive so I really can't compare. For what it is, U.S Marshals is an average popcorn action thriller with a decent cast of actors. The plot is good enough to keep you interested and there's enough action to please the diehard action fan. There's a few things that are imperfect with the film, but for what it is, it's a good action film. Like I mentioned, I've never seen the Fugitive, but I really did like this film. This is a decent action film to watch. Tommy Lee Jones give a great performance, and this is one of the few films that Wesley Snipes has made that is quite good. U.S Marshals though watching it now looks dated. But it still somehow holds up. I've seen better films of this caliber, but for what it's worth, U.S Marshals is a well made popcorn film for an audience that wants mindless, thrilling entertainment. The film has it's downsides, but it still manages to be a good enough action film to please action buffs. I've seen better films with Tommy Lee Jones, and he does deliver here, but it's on of his weaker performances. U.S Marshals is a watchable film, but it's not the best in the action genre. Luckily what keeps the film afloat is the impressive names attached to the film.

Tommy Lee Jones is the only reason to see this sequel to The Fugitive, and the strength of his character is probably the only reason it was made.

Nowhere near the level of the first, but really fun and a good movie on its own. Instead of following John Kimble and making a ridiculous and unprecedented sequel, it went with Tommy Lee Jones and his team. That move works all to well and has a great addition with Robert Downey Jr. However, what really sells the sequel is Wesley Snipes, who plays such a different character than Harrison Ford. He knows how to pound people in, but also be the good guy.
