Sequel to an outstanding movie The Fugitive (1993). In this film, the focus is on the team that was searching for Dr. Richard Kimble in the first movie. That team was led by Tommy Lee Jones, who won an Oscar for his performance, which probably helped spur this sequel. It worked, as Jones and company (Joe Pantoliano and others) are just as much fun to watch as they were in The Fugitive.

There are many similarities to the latter, especially in the first third of the film, featuring some tremendous action scenes. Instead of a train crash, we have a plane crash. Instead of Harrison Ford on the run, we have Wesley Snipes. In both films, you have such an involving story that the two hours fly by.

The Fugitive is still one of my all-time favorite movies. If you were entertained by it as well but are wary of sequels, you needn't be here: this is very good.

Another one of those movies well worth revisiting.
The film kicks off with a car chase, involving 'Mark Roberts'(Wesley Snipes) who will
become the fugitive.
'Marshal Sam Gerard'(Tommy Lee Jones) is assigned along with fellow deputy's to escort a
number of prisoners on a flight to another location.
During the flight an incident on board leads to catastrophic engine failure, the plane is forced
to attempt an emergency landing, after which during desperate moments when the plane
finishes up in a river,
one of the prisoners escapes....'Mark Roberts'
This triggers a search led by 'Marshal Sam Gerard'
Federal agents have been trying to track down former agent 'Mark Roberts'
real name 'Mark Sheridan' he'd killed two agents, he'd claimed this to
be self-defence.
The agency insist that 'Agent John Royce' (Robert Downey jnr) joins the marshal in the search.
The hunt begins......it becomes a game of cat-and-mouse as the search becomes more intense.
Will 'Mark Sheridan' have time to clear his name before capture ?
A enjoyable and dramatic watch, the film has several action sequences, along
with some convincing visual effects.
Plenty of tension coupled with a pretty good transfer HD upgrade on this 1998
movie, good picture and sound quality throughout.
WELL WORTH REVISITING. (U.S. IMPORT....it is MULTI-REGION)
Features include:- 'Anatomy of the plane crash' 'Justice under the star'
'Commentary by director - 'Stuart Baired' and 'Theatrical Trailer'

Format: DVD
Structurally, U.S. Marshals, is a reworking of the The Fugitive, fulfilling the classic sequel brief of "the same but different": the producers substitute an incredibly impressive plane crash for the incredibly impressive train crash, a fall from a tall building for a fall from a dam and government defense secrets for drugs trials while throwing in the same plot device of an ally who turns out to be an enemy. The main difference here is no Harrison Ford, more Tommy Lee Jones and added Wesley Snipes (presumably on the run from the taxman) and Robert Downey Jr. (who really should have kept the sunglasses on until he finished rehab). There are no surprises, it's somewhat overlong and you won't remember it a day later, but it's energetically directed by Stuart Baird and superbly edited by Terry Rawlings and does its job effectively enough while you're watching it.

Sadly, UK buyers get short measures again - the Stuart Baird audio commentary and an additional featurette from the Region 1 NTSC DVD have not been included on this release, which simply includes the featurette on the spectacular plane crash.

Basically a continuation of the first movie"The Fugative"without Harrison Ford!Tommy Lee-Jones returns as "Gerard!",persuing Wesley Snipes.Pretty much the same as the original but with Robert Downey Jnr as a crooked cop and a plane crash instead of a traincrash.very watchable just for"Jones"returning as his oscar winning role "Gerard!".

Format: DVD
A very good action film with a predictable script but an unpredictable ending. This was one of the best action films of 1998 mainly because it had Wesley Snipes in it. Mark Sheridan (Wesley Snipes) is on the run after a routine pick up went wrong. He ended up killing two federal agents in self defence. It is upto Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) to catch him. From crash landings in planes, to jumping off buildings, this film is has non stop action in it.
Tommy Lee Jones easily steals the show, but lets not take anything away from Wesley Snipes though, he is as reliable as ever being the action hero.
Tommy Lee Jones plays the no nonsense U.S. Marshal Sam Gerard and once again will stop at nothing to catch his fugitive. Little does he know that his fugitive is trained for this type of situation which makes him extremely hard to catch. But no one is that hard to catch for the great Sam Gerard, until now.
Great acting, suspense and action all in one. Overall, if you like either of these two actors you will love this film, if you enjoy action films you will love this film, just watch it and you will understand what I mean.
Enjoy!!!!!
