    One armed man gets his due

    Harrison Ford is great a Richard Kimbal. The action sceens with the train were great. Felt like you were on the bus with the actors.

    Great movie for all to watch.

    It's the one armed man!

    As Harrison Ford movies go, this one is one of the best. He is in very good shape. He is prepared to run from the Law when they had done wrong and we vicariously root for him. Tommy Lee Jones is the sardonic and tough U.S. Marshal (a natural for the role and yet he was dorm mates with Al Gore).

    It's Great!!

    I rate this movie 5 stars because it was an intense, action-filled story dealing with DNA and related to the medical and scientific teachings of our biology class. Dr. Richard Kimble(played by Harrison Ford)was convited of murdering his wife, Wendy. After surviving and escaping from the correctional facility bus, he went on his on investigation to find the one-armed man that killed his wife. Based on tissue and blood samples, the case folds to reveal the real murderer.

    Science, Action, and Humor

    The Fugitive has been a smashing hit since its 1993 premiere. In this action-packed thriller Harrison Ford plays Dr. Richard Kimble who is convicted of murdering his wife. A bus train collision, occurring while being transferred to prison on bus, allows Kimble to escape when he survives the accident. Kimble escapes the crash with determination to find out who killed his wife. Tommy Lee Jones plays US Marshal Sam Gerard who is behind Kimble every step of the way to bring him to justice! One clue Richard has is that his wife's murderer only had one arm. He searches the Medical Community and finds clues connecting to some of his prior work. Before being charged and found guilty of his wife's murder Richard had been researching and experimenting a new ''wonder drug'' along with two co-workers and friends of his. He finds out one of his friends was trying to deceive the FDA with the new ''wonder drug'' and with that every clue he gets leads him closer to the killer. This movie is filled with action and humor. It is sure to keep you alert to every scene. You will watch it to the very end!!

    powerful thiller

    This movie is for anyone who loves to put pieces of the puzzel together with movies. This movie is about a intelligent doctor who comes home to find his wife murdered and has a brutal fist fight with the killer . While the killer escapes from his crime , guess who gets blamed for it. If you guessed the doctor your right. So now the doctor has to prove that he is innocent . Will he get punished for something he didn't do or get away a free man?

    Makes your heart beat twice as fast

    Harrison Ford (Dr. Richard Kimble) gives an excellent performance as a man who takes advantage of an escape from incarceration to attempt to solve the crime of which he was accused and convicted. From the beginning, Dr. Kimble is asked to save the lives of his fellow inmates and guards during a bus/train collision. After escaping, he calls upon his attorney and fellow doctors for assistance. He is determined to find a one-armed man, who he deems was the true killer of his wife. The US Marshalls are hot on his trail through swamps, waterfalls, hospital corridors, and city streets. He continues to leave them clues about what he is discovering, hoping that they will believe that he is innocent. Along the way, he shows that the Hypocratic Oath is second nature, in saving a child, while masquerading as a janitor in a hospital. In looking for clues to prove his innocence, he uncovers a pharmaceutical industry conspiracy, the likes of which could spawn a movie of its own. The ethics of Devin/McGregor in getting their drug, Provasic approved by the FDA made a wonderful subplot. This movie must be watched several times, to uncover all the layers.

    at the edge of your seat

    The movie was about a doctor named Richard Kembal who was accused of killing his wife. He was found guilty and was sent to jail. On the way to jail an accident happened that helped him escape. On the run Richard was searching for the killer. If you want to know what happens at the end watch the movie. I really recommend it.

    Guilty or Not

    The ''Fugitive'' is filled with high energy that will have you falling out of your seats. This movie, starring Harrison Ford and Tomy Lee Jones, is an action pack movie about a guy who is accussed of murdering his wife. While riding in a car, he manages to escape. All of the the marshals and policemen are out looking for him. It will be hard because he is in disguise. Turns out that another doctor is involved. Richard ( Harrison Ford) is trying to prove himslf innocent but is he really? His wife's murder doesn't want him in his way of approving a drug called Provasic. Richard is no ordinary fugitive and the marshal (Tommy Lee Jones) notice's that. He puts his own risk on the line to save others. Richard goes to look for his wife's murder in hospitals but ill he find him? Will he end up in prison again himself? Will his hipocratic oath jeoporidize his own life?

    ''On The Run!''

    I thought the fugitive was a very high packed action thiller that will keep you on the edge of your set. I especially enjoyed this movie because it has one of my favorite actors,Tommy Lee Jones. ''The Fugitive'' is a great name for this movie because it explains mostly what a fugitive is and what a person does to become a fugitive. I also think that this is an educational movie if you are involved with the law enforcement or it even can be related to science. Futhermore, ''The Fugitive'' is a very outstanding movie and is guaranteed to have you wondering in suspense.

    The Fugitive

    This movie is about a famous surgeon whose name is Dr. Richard Kimble. Dr. Kimble has been incorrectly blamed and charged with his wife's brutal murder. The story takes a wild turn when Kimble is being transported to prison, where he will be held until his sentenced death. But on the way there another convict stabs a distracted guard. This causes a gigantic accident. Of course this was Dr. Kimble¿s opportunity to escape, and that he did. Kimble makes it his number one priority to find out exactly whom the killer o of his wife is because he knows that he didn¿t do it. The only problem to his plans is that he is being hunted by harsh U.S. marshal whose name is Sam Gerard (played by Tommy Lee Jones). The fugitive, as Kimble is to be known, is determined to set the facts straight and be aquitted of all charges. So he begins to change himself into a different person for every situation he finds himself in. This man will not stop until he finds the real killer!

    Falsely accused

    Harrison Ford (Dr.Richard Kimble) starred in the movie ''The Fugitive''. He was falsely accused for killing his wife. Helen Kimble, play by Sela Ward. Although this movie is well known for its action, breath taking suspense and exciting chase scences, the subplot is also very intense. His problems started out when he was working on a medicine that was being tested. It was called ''Provasic'' and the pharmaceutical company needed the FDA permission to put the medicine out in the market. Three of the doctors were chosen to test the medicine. Because of fame and fortune, Dr.Nichols would change the tested patient's tissues to put in for a more healthy tisues sample without anybody noticing it. His next step was to destroyed the people that was in his way,that was Dr.Leatz who was killed by his plan and Dr.Kimble, who was going to die next. It was later on when Dr.Nichols sent people to killed Dr.Kimble but that night his wife was kill instead. This movie is fill with action, and deals with scientific problems. it will fill you with suspense.

    Fugitive

    This is the best action packed movie of the year. It is filled with suspense drama and mystery. '' The Fugitive'' is one of the rare movies that shows detail to a very serious situation that not only happens in movies but can also occur in real life.

He claims it is a one-armed man. But is he guilty or not guilty that is the question. He escapes after an accident and is now a fugitive. You decide if he's the murderer.

    all action, all the time

    At all times it seems that the US Marshall (Tommy Lee Jones) is either chasing Dr. Kimble (Harrison Ford), or following his lead. On death row, Dr. Kimble takes a last minute opportunity given to him by an unfortunate bus/train reck, to escape. As a fugitive, he is both running from the law, and running towards solving the mystery of the identity of the one-armed man he says is the true killer. As he digs around the medical community of Chicago, he encounters an insidious plot to defraud the FDA. This movie has many twists and surprises that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
