U.S. Marshals

Critics Consensus

A rote albeit well-cast action thriller, U.S. Marshals suffers badly in comparison to the beloved blockbuster that preceded it.

Movie Info

An airplane bearing gruff U.S. Marshal Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) crashes in the wilderness. On board the same flight is Mark Sheridan (Wesley Snipes), a federal prisoner accused of double murder, who escapes during the ensuing chaos, but not before rescuing several people from the wreckage. Gerard is ordered to hunt down the fugitive along with State Department agent John Royce (Robert Downey Jr.), and the two pursue Sheridan relentlessly, despite growing doubts about his guilt.

Audience Reviews for U.S. Marshals

    An enjoyable sequel with no Ford but who cares when you've got Jones in a chicken suit. The film's a little long but it's a strong cast and I always find myself watching it when it's on TV. Downey Jnr has gone onto better parts but is good value here and Snipes makes a formidable adversary.

    Certainly not among the best and surely forgettable. But it has Tommy Lee Jones, Wesley Snipes and Robert Downey, Jr. I've never seen The Fugitive so I don't really know how much this installment sucks as compared with that one, but this will do if all you need is entertainment.

    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.
