Editorial Reviews

Catch him if you can. The Fugitive is on the run! Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones race through the breathless manhunt movie based on the classic TV series. Ford is prison escapee Dr. Richard Kimble, a Chicago surgeon falsely convicted of killing his wife and determined to prove his innocence by leading his pursuers to the one-armed man who actually committed the crime. Jones (1993 Academy Award and Golden Globe winner as Best Supporting Actor) is Sam Gerard, an unrelenting bloodhound of a U.S. Marshal. They are hunted and hunter. And as directed by Andrew Davis (Under Siege), their nonstop chase has one exhilarating speed: all-out. So catch him if you can. And catch an 11-on-a-scale-of-10 train wreck (yes, the train is real), a plunge down a waterfall, a cat-and-mouse jaunt through a Chicago St. Patrick's Day parade and much more. Better hurry. Kimble doesn't stay in one place very long!

4.0 out of 5 stars 20th Anniversary Edition does just about everything right September 1, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I'd imagine that most people have seen "The Fugitive" (1993) by now. If not, you're missing out on one of the best thrillers of the 1990s, featuring great performances by Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones, lots of terrific chase scenes, an interesting plot, memorable music by James Newton Howard and much more. The film has held up nicely since 1993: it's still capable of entertaining modern audiences who have seen all the films that "The Fugitive" has influenced.

The first Blu-ray release (with the black cover) was pretty lackluster, featuring a relatively weak A/V presentation (including lossy Dolby Digital audio) and a few recycled bonus features from the old DVD special edition. This new 20th Anniversary Edition (white cover) has a great new transfer, a new lossless DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio track and two new bonus features: a retrospective featurette with Ford, Jones, director Andrew Davis, actors Joe Pantoliano and Jane Lynch; as well as the 2000 TV pilot of "The Fugitive"'s revival series, which was cancelled after 22 episodes back in 2001. This second series has not been released on DVD or Blu-ray thus far, so it's nice to have a taste of it here. Also, the older DVD bonus features are here as well, including a few vintage featurettes and more.

Overall, not quite a fully-loaded edition but definitely a big improvement over the first Blu-ray release. Whether you bought that, held off or have never seen "The Fugitive", this 20th Anniversary release is worth picking up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, but Special Edition extras only so-so September 3, 2001
Format:DVD
When I first saw 'The Fugitive', I was hoping that it didn't fall into the trap of silliness that most TV-show based feature films have fallen into (remember 'Car 54', or 'Wild Wild West'?). Needless to say, I was more than pleasantly surprised to see that it went WAY beyond my low expectations! Great moments of suspense, action, and plot twists galore!

Harrison Ford's been knocked for not putting much 'feeling' into some of his roles. But if there are emotions he does do well, it's desperation and determined stoicism with a touch of sarcasm... a perfect fit for a fugitive out to clear his name. As well, Tommy Lee Jones is a lock as U.S. Marshal Sam Gerard- he plays the character's somewhat cocky and no-nonsense attitude to perfection. He also gets the best lines, and a pretty good supporting cast playing his U.S. Marshal Service cohorts (including the recently- recognized Joe Pantoliano). It's scenery-chewing at it's best, and definitely an Oscar-worthy perfomance.

Their performances of the two main characters and antagonists is so compelling that, like my fellow reviewers have stated before, I was rooting for the both of them throughout the presentation. It's two 'good guys' against each other, with one helping lead the other to the same end!

When I heard about the Special Edition DVD release, I was kinda bummed. I'd already spent a few bucks on the original release, and never anticipated the possibility of an enhanced version. But, thanks to those wonderful buyers on eBay, I got a good return on my original disc at a minimal loss, and grabbed a copy of the new one.

The new disc isn't half-bad, but doesn't quite match up to the standards of other fully-loaded DVD fare as `T2 Ultimate Edition' or `The Abyss'.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fugitive 20th Anniversary Edition on BluRay September 23, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
While I have the Standard Definition DVD, I avoided the previous release of this film on blu ray due to its lousy video transfer and lossy audio. Since most everyone includes summaries and acting opinions I will focus, as I always due, solely upon the quality of this new release.

VIDEO...
The video transfer is fantastic and has clearly been remastered for this release. There is no appreciable grain or disturbing artifacts anywhere. Color grading appears to have been redone as well as all colors have a very natural and real life appearance. In one early scene, a blue door appears to pop with color but not in an unreal 'Transformers' way. Details, large and small, are easily perceived and even hair on heads are not mushed blobs but each individual strand can be seen. This is the video transfer that all have been waiting for and they did not get back doored. The transfer to Blu Ray makes it appear as if the film was made last week on the latest and highest resolution camera equipment. There is no letter boxing of the film as it fills your entire screen. The video transfer is a 5 star transfer in all ways.

AUDIO...
We finally have The Fugitive coming with a lossless DTS HD MA 5.1 audio which provides perfectly transparent dialogue and excellent audio balancing of the excellent background score with both dialogue and the many foley effects. Panning across the front stage as well as the front to rear and rear to front audio stages are frequent and realistic especially so during helicopter scenes. Subtle foley effects are perfectly leveled in the surrounds with discreet directionality for many of them. Once set, you will not need to go back and forth with your remote's volume control. The audio transfer also rates 5 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Average video quality for Blu-ray format April 12, 2008
By SamC
Format:Blu-ray
I've noticed various reviews here have stated that the video quality was impressive. Personally I was quite disapointed.

This was the first Blu-ray I purchased and frankly I was disappointed with the video quality. I realize the film is never going to look as sparkling and clean as more recent films, but the image quality seemed lacking.

It has a soft, washed out 'milky' look and the detail is off and on. Sometimes the close-ups on faces are impressive, but then it will cut to a city shot at night and I really noticed the lack of definition.

Of course much of this flatness comes from the fact that the photography was fairly dull in the first place (the whole film has a 'grey' look), but I still expected something more impressive on the Blu-ray format.

Also the sound is not HD or PCM. It comes with the same audio as the previous DVD.

So my advice, if you only want to collect Blu-rays with superb video & audio quality, this is NOT one of them. But, if you are simply a fan of the film and want the best quality version available, then this is still your best bet.
