Product Description

Ladies and gentlemen, be alert. We are going to initiate a hard-target search for a fugitive in an ever-widening perimeter. We will wade through swamps, prowl Manhattan streets, search every house and doghouse. We'll eat on the run, sleep tomorrow, watch our backs. And since Marshal Sam Gerard leads the hunt, we will experience suspense, action and daring twists every breathless step of the way. Returning to his Oscar-winning role from The Fugitive, Tommy Lee Jones is Gerard, joining an A-team including Wesley Snipes, Robert Downey Jr. and director Stuart Baird. (Executive Decision) to deliver adrenaline-rush excitement. The suspect: armed, extremely dangerous, perhaps linked to a spy ring. The chase: highlighted by an out-of-control 727, a death match in a ship's cargo hold, a 12-story plunge onto a moving train and more heart-pounding sequences. The movie: U.S. Marshals.

Audio Commentary:Commentary by Stuart Baird

An ultimately futile attempt to make lightning strike twice, this so-called spinoff from 1993's blockbuster The Fugitive avoids the label of "sequel" by forging ahead without the first film's star, Harrison Ford. The idea is to showcase the return of Tommy Lee Jones in his Oscar-winning role as tenacious U.S. Marshal Sam Gerard, this time testing his mettle against a covert government operative (Wesley Snipes) accused of murdering two secret service attachés. Unfortunately, Jones and the entire cast have been trapped in a rambling plot, and the underdog status that made Ford such a compelling hero is sacrificed to an evenly matched and eventually tiresome game of cat and mouse, with a villain whose identity is far too predictable. With no dramatic buildup and several superfluous characters to distract its focus, the film's momentum plays out like a rote exercise compared to the high stakes of the earlier film. --Jeff Shannon

Format: DVD
In 1993, Warner Brothers studios released an incredibly successful movie called "The Fugitive" starring Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones, and based on the hit TV series of the same name. 5 years after the success of that film, the WB decided to release a semi-sequel/spin-off to the film focusing on the further exploits of the character of U.S. Marshal, Sam Gerard, played by Tommy Lee Jones. It was surprising that Warner Bros. wanted to explore this supporting character further, in fact it was just as surprising that they felt there could even be any chance of success with having a sequel/spin-off to a movie that was completely self-contained. But, the decision was made and Warner Bros. actually managed to re-sign Tommy Lee Jones, along with the rest of the actors that comprised his original crew of deputy U.S. Marshals, and adding Wesley Snipes and talented, yet troubled actor Robert Downey Jr. to the mix. With the cast all set, the story greenlit, and acclaimed editor turned director Stuart Baird ("Star Trek: Nemesis") helming the picture, it was time to see if Warner Bros.' gamble would pay off with "U.S. Marshals".

"U.S. Marshals" follows U.S. Marshal Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) as he pursues yet another fugitive on the loose. When a truck driver named Mark Roberts (Wesley Snipes) is involved in a car crash, the police reporting on the scene discover that this truck driver is actually wanted for a double homicide of two federal agents in New York City, and has been living in Chicago under an assumed name for the last several months. During the transfer flight from Chicago to New York, an assassination attempt on Mark's life takes place causing the plane to depressurize and crash into a river.

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.

They could have named this one the Fugitive II and gotten away with it. There was a slight lack of originality, but the spectacular cast pulls it off. Overall the movie was good. Tommy Lee Jones does a wonderful job and Robert Downey, Jr. was memorable as well. The comic relief was a must and was appreciated as it helped counterract the amazing suspense level present. I think I will add this one to my collection.

If you're looking for more than cheap thrills and bravado, you may be disappointed as US Marshal drags for about half an hour or so more than it needs to. But it rises above its hackneyed chase routines with Jones' commanding screen presence. Some scenes, such as the opening plane crash, are exemplary cinematography. The soundtrack effectively complements the roller-coaster action sequences. There's a surprise twist in the tale too, but don't read too much lest you should spoil it. Recommended rental, for sure.

Well crafted actioner with the always reliable Tommy Lee Jones and the previously (and perhaps now, again) reliable Wesley Snipes. This is kind of "The Fugitive, Part Deux") except it is a new fugitive with a similar cast of supporting characters, and an even more nefarious "wrong man" plot involving the US Government. The nice addition is a very young Robert Downey, Jr. -- pre substance abuse issues -- and a Laundry List of goons and law enforcement officials out of Central Casting. All that being said, Stuart Baird never met an Action movie script he didn't like, or couldn't craft into something crisp, with good pacing and real human-interest. Fun stuff, made even funner by Jones's ability to hold the center of any film together. Why hasn't this guy won an Oscar?

U.S. MARSHALS which is the sequel to the Action thriller THE FUGITIVE with Harrison Ford
again another Great Action thriller, Brilliantly Directed by Stuart Baird who was the film Editor on Superman the movie
now turned Film Director
and you can't forget the cast, Brilliant cast for the film
Tommy Lee Jones comes back as Head marshal Sam Gerard with Joe Pantoliano
and some new Actors aswell, Kate Nelligan, Robert Downey Jnr & Wesley snipes as the Fugitive in this film
Wesley Snipes plays a CIA operative who has been setup for First degree murder
and Tommy lee Jones is on the chase for him
and i tell you what alot more suspense and intrigue in the plot than the first film
cause Tommy lees character is going up against a very experienced CIA operative played by Wesley snipes
so the chase is Definitely on and Brilliantly well Directed by Stuart Baird

Warner bros have given this sequel some respect on Blu-ray
a new High Definition blu-ray transfer a new 5.1 master audio surround sound mix
the new blu-ray transfer looks pretty clear not much Grain, better than the old DVD release for sure
plus the Audio quality has been given a new master audio punch up again better than the DVD release

but that's about it tragically, there's no new special features for this blu-ray release
no new interviews with Tommy lee Jones on his recollections of this Great sequel
no new interview with Director Stuart Baird
all you get is the exact same extras from the old DVD release that is it
you get the old DVD commentary by Director stuart Baird
plus 2 of the featurettes from the DVD release plus Theatrical trailer.

i gave this blu-ray 5 stars based on the Picture quality and a new 5.1 master audio track
plus the brilliant Actors and Director
so definitely time for an upgrade buy this new blu-ray of U.S. marshals
time to throw out the old dvd release
