If you can get past the naked exploitation of this mercenary sequel, U.S. Marshals is a sort of brain-rotting kind of fun (how's that for an endorsement?). [Blu-ray]

Tommy Lee Jones is the only reason to see this sequel to The Fugitive, and the strength of his character is probably the only reason it was made. The story just doesn't hold together.

It suffers, too, from what plagues the big, brawny action engines: The mechanics of the generic thrills and spills override the logic of the narrative.

'U.S. Marshals' is not a bad film; it's just a very derivative one, with not enough of its own voice to persuade us it's anything more than a copycat.

This technically efficient spin-off of The Fugitive is a mind-boggling letdown. Chase, cover-up crash, chase, cover-up, jump, chase.

Jones is obviously energized by the more physical role Gerard plays in this installment.

Nowhere near the level of the first, but really fun and a good movie on its own. Instead of following John Kimble and making a ridiculous and unprecedented… More

You really need to separate this film from any comparison to The Fugitive to give it a fair chance. What it is, is a very easy watching Action film which flows… More
