Speedy, inventive and very entertaining


The only reason we have a film called "U.S. Marshals" is the cold fact that somebody was simply dying to see Tommy Lee Jones returning into his Oscar-awarded role as a tough, bold and unhesitating Deputy Marshal Samuel Gerard. At first I was thinking "just another foolish sequel" and I have to admit that at one point it more or less even looked like "U.S. Marshals" is basically the same film than "The Fugitive" but only with Wesley Snipes in the shoes of Harrison Ford. But this is the real and the final truth: from what I remember "The Fugitive" was like I never considered it as all that great but since I was definitely on the edge of my seat with "U.S. Marshals" only logical thing would be to assume that this was naturally a better movie.

I tried to avoid "U.S. Marshals" for many years (I've no idea why) but now when I finally saw it I was stunned by it. Interesting detail about this film as well as "The Fugitive" too is the peculiar fact that during the movie audience can't never really decide who's side their sympathies actually are and which one do they want to succeed: the innocent fugitive or Tommy Lee Jones' eminent marshal because clearly they're both equally heroes. "U.S. Marshals" is not a special thriller but it works splendidly as what it is and it doesn't try to be anything it isn't. Tommy Lee Jones is the ultimate star of the movie but Snipes is also pretty excellent as Sheridan. When you think of "U.S. Marshals" the impressive scene where Sheridan jumps onto the roof of a moving subway is already a classic. Still I'm sure that's not necessarily the only scene audience remembers. I don't know what you think but "U.S. Marshals" was a fine experience for me.

Very Worthy Sequel To A Great Film

This is an outstanding 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.

U.S Marshals, being the newer film of the two, has better sound and even better special effects for the action scenes. As spectacular as was the train crash in The Fugitive, the plane disaster in here is even better. The same goes for a few other scenes. There is more action in this film. Normally, I don't need that but it's so well-done here, it's fine....fun to watch.

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 excellent.
