Editors Note
Note In this near-perfect suspense movie adapted from the popular 1960s television series that starred David Janssen, renowned vascular surgeon Dr. Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford) has been falsely accused and convicted--on circumstantial evidence--of his wife's (Sela Ward) murder. While Kimble is being transported to prison, another convict stabs an inattentive guard, causing a massive wreck. Kimble escapes but is hunted by tough U.S. marshal Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones). The fugitive from injustice attempts to set the record straight: He transforms himself into a jack-of-all-trades and a man of a thousand faces in a desperate attempt to uncover the truth about his wife's murder and track down the real killer. Spectacular special effects and a pulse-pounding performance by Ford turned Andrew Davis's thrilling film into a blockbuster at the box office, leading to a sequel, U.S. MARSHALS.
Plot Summary
Summary A doctor wrongly accused of killing his wife escapes authorities, continually eludes a zealous detective, and hunts for clues to solve his wife's murder himself in order to prove his innocence. The bizarre circumstances that led to the death only sweeten the suspense.

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review Andrew Davis' The Fugitive is one of the best entertainments of the year, a tense, taut and expert thriller that becomes something more than that, an allegory about an innocent man in a world prepared to crush him... It seems incredible that he could remain free, and even pursue attempts to prove his innocence, but he does, in a film that never relaxes its tension, even for an instant. This is pure filmmaking on a master scale.

Review A juggernaut of exaggeration, momentum and thrills--without a single lapse of subtlety--Fugitive is pure energy, a perfect orchestration of heroism, villainy, suspense and comic relief. Ford makes the perfect rider for a project like this, with his hangdog-handsome everyman presence. He's one of us -- but one of us at his personal best. It's great fun to ride along with him.

Review With all apologies to Harrison Ford...the real standout is Tommy Lee Jones. For an actor whose star has been on the rise for the past couple of years, this may be the movie that finally gets him into the upper echelon of today's performers. He invests his character with charisma and energy and, as Gerard's grudging respect for Kimble grows, so does our appreciation of what Jones is doing with his seemingly-straightforward role.
