Catch him if you can. The Fugitive is on the run! Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones race through the breathless manhunt movie based on the classic TV series. Ford is prison escapee Dr. Richard Kimble, a Chicago surgeon falsely convicted of killing his wife and determined to prove his innocence by leading his pursuers to the one-armed man who actually committed the crime. Jones (1993 Academy Award and Golden Globe winner as Best Supporting Actor) is Sam Gerard, an unrelenting bloodhound of a U.S. Marshal. They are hunted and hunter. And as directed by Andrew Davis (Under Siege), their nonstop chase has one exhilarating speed: all-out.

One of the greatest mystery stories of all time.
NORTH BY NORTHWEST is the 1950s as THE FUGITIVE is the 1990s. Unlike thrillers of the past fifteen or so years, this cat-and-mouse game between Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones shows no wasted time. The wrongly convicted and sentenced Dr. Richard Kimble (Ford) is dead-on about his innocence and will not go to the execution table without making that clear to the workers of the flawed criminal justice system--or to himself. In short terms, Kimble doesn't just mope around while the true killer runs free and fast. Luck and danger are on his side when the transport bus crashes and an incoming train is derailed. One of the film's stand-out, cover-your-eyes moments, the bus-and-train crash is. And off he goes to do what law enforcement are not even trying to do: FIND HIS WIFE'S ONE-ARMED KILLER. He must be very discreet to do it, being a "fugitive of the law". Likewise, Deputy U.S. Marshall Sam Gerard (Jones) is wasting no time in his efforts to catch his suprisingly resilient prey. Gerard is willing to break any rules--and any bones--to get his man; even to the point of shooting to kill. If only his team (Daniel Roebuck, Joe Pantoliano, L. Scott Caldwell) were a band of Joe Fridays and Bill Gannons instead of some imrpov troupe thrown into the wrong work force. Anyway, what makes this chase flick a winner is that story and characters are the heart of the story, not the plot. And it's no question that it is Kimble and Gerard who are running the show here. Another highlight is when Kimble makes it clear to Gerard that if he wants to catch him, he'd better get into the puzzle-solving habit--via phone call from the real killer's house. The writers of the picture and the director spare no effort at showing how high the tension rises when on the run, how single-minded police, witnesses, and more tend to be, and how desperate criminal offenders are to keep their crimes and/or involvement in such under wraps. Plus, testosterone is NOT the leading factor; content of character is. From start to finish, THE FUGITIVE stays the course it is meant to travel, with no sideway sentiment or flashy explosions attached. Plus, it gives viewers of the classic series a new respect for it by following it up. (Not downplaying it like with 21 JUMP STREET. ) Thus, with the right casting, writing, pacing, and production, Kimble, Gerard, and the audience follow through when the fleeing protagonist demands, "YOU FIND THAT MAN!"
The Fugitive is in my opinion the most engaging innocent-on-the-run thrillers in film history. Doctor Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford) starts out running for his life following a devastatingly intense bus crash and train wreck. Suddenly, he realizes that the police will never find the one-armed killer of his wife, and that he will have to find the creep himself. To do that, he has to be inconspicuous, and most of all steer well clear of U.S Marshal Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones). Ford, known for the role Han Solo in Star Wars, must put the pretty boy act aside and let everyone know he is dead serious about getting justice for his wife and staying alive. I admire Kimble's cleverness in giving the marshals the slip and finding the clues he needs. It's hard, however, for me to believe the stupidity in the doc's pursuers and everyone else. How can they not see that Kimble goes way out of his way to not hurt anyone? Shouldn't this be a hint that they probably fingered the wrong guy? As commanding as Ford's lead is, I have to be honest and say that it is Tommy Lee Jones who really keeps the project and the chase going in a straight line. Jones is so sincere about his "no prisoners" attitude, that Ford really has to step his already impressive game. The whole chase is fun and exciting, you know? But four parts really stick out: (A.) The bus crash and the train wreck--Kimble saves the guard's life before the train hits; (B.) The chase in the...bank? whereever when Gerard shouts, "Richard!" and Kimble runs--I just can't help but say, "YOU'LL NEVER CATCH ME, GERARD!!;" (C.) The call from the real killer's place between Kimble and Gerard--where Kimble tells the Marshal to get his head out of his [you know what]; and (D.) the climactic fight between Kimble and Charles Nichols. This also marks Jones' most memorable set of lines; when Gerard lets Kimble know that he now knows the truth. That bus ride and crash is cinematic proof that having those guns has always been and will be a mistake. Authority or none. Finally, Ford and Jones lead this project with incrdible ease and focus, while everyone else, especially Joe Pantoliano and Daniel Roebuck...and yes Julianne Moore, are just backseat passengers. It's not North by Northwest exactly, but you must see it from the start....Or not at all.
