Thrilling story of pursuit with lots of unexpected twists - The Fugitive review by Harry

Spoiler Alert
15/03/2020

We found this story compelling viewing from the outset. Very believable situations and settings worthy of a fine actor such as Harrison Ford. He has rightly earned his reputation, enhanced by (I am told) doing his own stunt scenes. Right to the end we could not see how things would turn out, and that is the hallmark of a good thriller.

A masterpiece within the parameters of the genre - The Fugitive review by Philip in Paradiso

Spoiler Alert
08/12/2020

This is the story of a surgeon (Harrison Ford) who is accused of the murder of his wife and who goes on the run, while proclaiming his innocence. In hot pursuit is a tough cop who will not give up the hunt (Tommy Lee Jones). What you get is a brilliant action thriller with some memorable scenes that you are unlikely to forget, such as the train-crash mayhem at the beginning of the movie. At the heart of the story is the battle of wits between the talented surgeon and the US marshal hunting him down: a duel played out across the city of Chicago.

Within the parameters of the genre of such a film, this is as good as it gets, even if the ending may seem a bit contrived, in my view. The 2 lead actors are very good and the pace of the film will keep you glued to your seat and screen. Overall, this is a masterpiece of the genre.

This is a good movie - The Fugitive review by CS

Spoiler Alert
26/01/2021

Wondered how Harrison Ford would fare with this iconic 60's series which is currently running on Freeview. - in black & white.

Different slant on the original story line but nonetheless a good portrayal of Richard Kimble running from the law and finds the

perpetrator himself, finally clearing his name. Good, believable and lots of action.
