Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

This is not so much a belated sequel to The Fugitive as a rehash, with Tommy Lee Jones reprising his Oscar-winning role as US Marshal Samuel Gerard. In place of Harrison Ford we have Wesley Snipes, and in place of a murdered wife we have a corkscrew plot about the CIA. Former editor Stuart Baird keeps the action rolling along in a rather monotonous manner and characterisation is limited to the odd one-liner before the next big bang. It wasn't the hit everyone clearly expected, but die-hard fans of mindless action won't be bored.
