After being unjustly convicted of murdering his wife, a successful doctor must find the real killer while being the target of a nationwide manhunt. Classic American action thriller with outstanding performances all around.
Memorable sequences and a great sense of pacing by director Andrew Davis.
Clever dialogue and screenplay, the film keeps the audience on it’s feet for it’s entire duration. Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones do a remarkable job in the title roles.
Nominated for seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, Tommy Lee Jones won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
“Like the cult television series that inspired it, the film has a Kafkaesque view of the world. But it is larger and more encompassing than the series: Davis paints with bold visual strokes so that the movie rises above its action-film origins and becomes operatic.” —Roger Ebert, writing for the Chicago Sun-Times
The Fugitive Cast: Harrison Ford, Tommy Lee Jones, Sela Ward, Julianne Moore, Joe Pantoliano
