This sequel to "The Fugitive" isn't a great movie, but I found it entertaining enough. I skipped it on its original release so wasn't bothered with the critics' reviews. I like Tommy Lee Jones and and Robert Downey Jr. has a supporting role. Wesley Snipes is decent as well. Worth a watch for a big budget thriller.

An average action, chase movie. Too cliched and predictable from the start.

During a routine pick up, the set up was created to frame Wesley.

Totally forgettable apart from the memory of boredom

Had no idea this was a sequel to The Fugitive. That explains the similarities. I was almost going to call it a rip off. This time it's a plane, not a bus, and Wesley Snipes's character doesn't really make himself look too innocent. It's entertaining, but of course The Fugitive is a much better film.

It unquestionably borrows from other crime thrillers, but U.S. Marshals somehow managed to surprise me and keep my interest to the very end. Most of it defiantly comes from its excellent cast. Not sure why, but somehow someway I enjoyed it.

The critics hated this movie. Probably because it's a team-based version of The Fugitive. Well not for nothing, I have both on a double sided disc. This is still very good. Just short of being as good as The Fugitive. But how could you top that film really? Tommy Lee Jones reprises his role as a...well.....authoritative figure trying to arrest a fugitive on the run. And how ironic it is to watch this film at this point in time with all the news about white guys and black cops and vice versa.

This film was also very well done like its counterpart. Straight fun from beginning to end, the film goes through several areas of the US, and the plot is just solid. The score is good, I'm gonna guess that John Williams conducted it again. The acting and characters, of which, I didn't know like almost all of them are all great. It's a good watch, especially after seeing it's more well known cousin. You can easily make comparisons on how different it is.

Not the fun romp or as quick moving as the first but Jones and Downey Jr,elevate this average thriller.

Really average action movie.

This sequel of sorts to The Fugitive is for the most part just as fast paced and entertaining. Deputy Gerrard is back and hunts down Sheridan (Snipes), but soon realizes Sheridan may not be guilty after all.

Directed by Stuart Baird, who had gone from editing films such as Tommy (1975), The Omen (1976) and Lethal Weapon (1987)) to making his directorial debut with Executive Decision (1995)). This is a sequel to The Fugitive (1993), now focusing on Tommy Lee Jones' character. It should have been a good action film, but it's plot is a stones throw away from copying the plot of The Fugitive. It begins when tow truck driver Mark Warren (Wesley Snipes) is arrested after a traffic collision in Chicago, and a weapon is found in his truck, and the weapon was used in a recent murder. He's revealed to be fugitive Mark Warren, who is wanted in New York. While in transit on a plane with Deputy U.S. Marshal Samuel Gerard (Jones) on board, a mutiny happens on board, and the plane crashes. Warren escapes, and Gerard goes on the hunt for him, and he's teamed up with Special Agent John Royce (Robert Downey, Jr.) to find Warren, but along the way, Gerard discovers evidence that Warren isn't all he seems and he knows more than he's letting on. It goes from a carbon copy of the first film to an espionage thriller with double and triple crossing and double identities. It's a well made film, but maybe it shouldn't have been marketed as a sequel to The Fugitive. Baird only directed one more film after this, Star Trek: Nemesis (2002), before he returned to editing.

Wesley Snipes isn't nearly the subject that Harrison Ford was but Tommy Lee Jones is still able to extract something likeable from the overblown plot. Full review later.
½ January 24, 2015
A shallow attempt at a spin-off to a masterful thriller.
½ November 13, 2014
A decent sequel with some thrills. 68/100

It's good, and almost at the same level as its predecessor. (A)

Underrated film, no where near as great as the Fugitive but it ain't that bad
August 2, 2014
The spinoff movie to 'The Fugitive' is told from the pursuer's Perspective. Thus I could fully enjoy Tommy's performance. Impression of Robert is green. It took a couple of years until he gets matured and has big success with 'Ironman'.
