Review

Our Score
The original TV series of The Fugitive starring David Janssen ran for 120 episodes in the 1960s and attracted a cult following. This big-screen adaptation bears little resemblance to its source, but for once this is a blessing. Director Andrew Davis takes the bare bones of the TV material and comes up with an unstoppable juggernaut here, in which the suspense never lets up and the set pieces (notably the spectacular train crash and Harrison Ford's daredevil dive into the dam) are truly epic. Ford is fine as the innocent surgeon who is wrongfully convicted of the murder of his wife and sets off to find the real killer. But the movie is stolen from under his nose by Tommy Lee Jones, who gives an Oscar-winning performance as the marshal doggedly pursuing the wanted man.

Summary

A doctor is convicted of his wife's murder and forced to go on the run to prove his innocence - but his efforts to find the mysterious one-armed man he believes is the real killer are hampered by a tenacious US marshal. Thriller, starring Harrison Ford, an Oscar-winning Tommy Lee Jones, Sela Ward, Julianne Moore and Joe Pantoliano.
