Thriller
By Jack Anderson on August 7, 2019
 6

The Fugitive is an excellent thriller with a big scale. I loved the fact that the film is taking place mostly outside – an obvious but important choice for such a movie.
Harrison Ford is simply perfect in this role. Tommy Lee Jones... not so much. While the duo works well, the character of Tommy Lee Jones is actually a bit annoying.
Still, a very fun movie.
Also, the scene of the train crash was really top notch. I learned it was a real crash and that shows. If it was done today, we would have to sit through fancy but poorly rendered CGIs. Hopefully it was not the case at the time.
And the end is not entirely satisfying, I think. Which is also the case with this poorly written review.

SUMMARY
A very fun movie, I give it 6 out of 10. Very good.

***Top-of-the-line crime thriller with Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones***

Released in 1993 and based on the TV show from 30 years earlier, “The Fugitive” stars Harrison Ford as Dr. Richard Kimble, an innocent fugitive framed for murder. As he pursues the one-armed killer & those who pulled his strings, a determined U.S. Marshal (Tommy Lee Jones) hunts Kimble down from wilderness regions to the streets of Chicago.

The first 40 minutes contain the most action, hooking the viewer with an exhilarating bus wreck/train wreck followed by a phenomenal dam sequence. The rest of the movie is an intelligent and suspenseful cat-and-mouse chase with Kimble zeroing-in on those who framed him and why.

“The Fugitive” was a deserved box office hit, costing $40 million and raking in $369 million with $184 of that domestically. To realize just how well-done it is, check out the sequel, “U.S. Marshals” (1998), which features the same basic plot, but without most of the magic.

The film runs 2 hours, 10 minutes and was shot in Illinois and North Carolina; the dam sequence, for instance, was filmed at Cheoah Dam, Tapoco, North Carolina.
