The movie is basically a clip reel of action production numbers, though admittedly some of these are staged with a ta-da-da-da sense of showmanship.

Perfectly watchable, though unmemorable.

Uma continuação que copia, cuidadosamente, os mínimos detalhes do filme que a originou.

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.

'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.

If you're interested in more than cheap thrills and bravado, you may be disappointed.

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.

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
