The Fugitive

Critics Consensus

Exhilarating and intense, this high-impact chase thriller is a model of taut and efficient formula filmmaking, and it features Harrison Ford at his frantic best.

All Critics (77) | Top Critics (19) | Fresh (74) | Rotten (3)

  • Call something a "real train wreck" and it's considered a put-down. Not in this fast-track, no-stops chase movie with a massive train-wreck scene that's going to have audiences scrambling for cover.

  • Working from a tight script by Jeb Stuart and David Twohy, director Andrew Davis has fashioned a crackling, intelligent thriller.

    August 19, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The film is little more than a well-oiled machine that serves a strictly limited function, but like a precision timepiece, it is a thing to marvel at, even under close scrutiny.

Audience Reviews for The Fugitive

  • Jul 03, 2016
    A very well told gripping film from start to finish, Brilliantly acted by Ford and Jones, Very well told story but it's too predictable and we all know how it was going to end, But it's one of Fords best films outside of Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

    A huge thrill ride! The Fugitive is a successful example of how to do a chase thriller right with memorable performances by Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones, smart script and a good use of location. Watch this movie now, if you don't like this film.... I don't care!

    The Fugitive isn't only a thriller that makes your heart beat out of your chest. It is also the kind that makes you think. Still, Tommy Lee Jones didn't deserve the Oscar for this film. DiCaprio was robbed.

    The Fugitive is most likely the most recognizable film that Schindler's List tossed aside while cruising to its Best Picture win, as well as being the recipient of the Oscar that probably should have gone to Ralph Fiennes's mesmerizing Amon Goeth of the same movie (even though Tommy Lee Jones was fantastic in this). Going with that, this movie must be very good. And good it is, perhaps even great, but it is not the king of thrillers of the last 20 years that people may say. The biggest problem I have with the Fugitive is simply that I feel it is slightly long. Its premise and plot is intriguing, but not in depth enough to handle a run time of this caliber. Take off twenty minutes or so, and you've got a fast, breathless thriller that runs smoothly. Instead, the 130 minutes it stands up to makes you feel a little worn out by the end, and not in the good way that it should. Other than that, this is an entertaining chase flick. Harrison Ford does his usual action hero thing and Jones is, as I said, fantastic. Besides those two leading the acting charge, there's really nobody else to stand out. Julianne Moore does less than her character does in the movie, and Jorean Krabbe, once a mediocre Bond villain, makes for a mediocre role here as well. However, Ford's and Jones's presence are more than enough to make up for any shortcomings from their screen companions. In addition, the action scenes are well shot and succeed in giving the film some momentum when things get dull during the length. While not one of the most incredible thrillers out there, and perhaps not worthy of a Best Picture nomination, The Fugitive does its job to entertain you, even if the length may not keep things movie quite as fast as it should. "I didn't kill my wife!" "I don't care!"
