While not quite a special edition, the re-release of The Fugitive makes up for what the original disc lacked. As with the first DVD, this disc has excellent picture and sound. The image, which is as good if not better than the previous release, uses a strong anamorphic transfer in the original theatrical aspect ration of 1.85:1. The detail is sharp and colors are consistent. In addition, blacks are deep and solid. The sound is equally impressive. The Dolby Digital 5.1 track is filled with effects that take advantage of the entire sound spectrum. A surround track in French, and subtitles in English and French, are also included. The original release of this title did not even have a trailer so it is exciting to see a little extra work go into this release. The highlight is a commentary track from director Andrew Davis and actor Tommy Lee Jones. Actually, Jones is rarely heard on this track, but Davis makes up for his absence with plenty of anecdotal information on making the film. Some of the things he talks about come as a real surprise. The rest of the supplemental information is not nearly as interesting, but still welcome. A 20-minute featurette called "On the Run With the Fugitive" combines film clips with interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, but lacks depth. The other featurette is a seven-minute piece called "Derailed: Anatomy of a Train Wreck"; while fascinating, it is too short. The least interesting extra on this disc is an introduction from Davis and Harrison Ford, which is nothing more than a very brief set of interviews. Biographies and filmographies of the main players as well as the theatrical trailer are also included. While superior to the first disc Warner released, it really could use more to make it feel complete.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kryssa Schemmerling
This tense chase-thriller, based on the old TV series, wowed audiences and critics alike with its beautifully choreographed action sequences, dazzling stunts, and superb acting. Harrison Ford stars as the fugitive, a surgeon wrongly convicted of killing his wife. After he escapes during a spectacular train wreck, an indefatigable U.S. marshal (Tommy Lee Jones in an Oscar-winning role) makes it a personal mission to bring the fugitive to justice. While director Andrew Davis (UNDER SEIGE) shows an almost Hitchcockian flair for inventive action and suspenseful plotting, it is the strength of the characterizations that earned THE FUGITIVE its Best Picture nomination. Jones's bemused and disdainful lawman and Ford's stoic hero play out their battle of wit and wills to perfection. Edgy and nuanced, Jones's performance generates almost as much excitement as the fugitive's spectacular, death-defying escapes.
All Movie Guide
Riddled with fast-paced action, taut suspense, and a blessedly wry, intelligent sense of humor, The Fugitive is one of the most thoroughly entertaining films ever to careen through the action genre. Directed with a sure, steady hand by Andrew Davis, the film's tight construction allows its lower-key moments to resound with the same compelling undertones as its action sequences; even the sight of Kimble's searching through medical files rings with nail-biting tension. Buoyed as much by its performances as by Davis' assured direction, The Fugitive benefits from the solid presence of Harrison Ford, here at his dependable, everyman best as the innocent Kimble, and a wily, Oscar-winning turn from Tommy Lee Jones as the relentless Gerard. The chemistry between the two adversaries is one of the film's most satisfying aspects, made so by believable, multi-dimensional characterizations that are all too rare in action films. Gerard is no idiot, and Kimble's eventual triumph is hard-won. Never possessing a clear, self-assured edge over his pursuers, his cleverness is well matched by that of the people determined to bring him to justice. The Fugitive contains enough tricks up its sleeve to satisfy even the most jaded action fans, and Ford fans will derive satisfaction from watching him prove that, though older and undeniably well-worn, he was still worthy of his status as one of the genre's most dependable heroes.

This movie is OK. Basically it is about a doctor (who is played by: Harrison Ford) accused of killing his wife. the whole time he was telling the cops that it wasnt him and that he caught a man in his house, and this man had an articfical arm. He runs from teh same U.S. MARSHALL. Using his medical knowledge and experience also connections he inches closer and closer to that guy. At the same time he also helps adn saves lives. It reminds me of the movie: DOUBLE JEPERARDY. The killer turns out to be a close person to him. I have noticed that new medical knowledge adn technology discovered everyday helps caught crimals and also to run blood test or to look at cells. We watched this movie in my Biology class because it had to deal with cells and tissue. if you want to know more about the movie watch it.

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.

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 first I thought that the movie was going to be really corney because of the title but, after I watched this movie I loved it, now I understand that when people say don't judge a book by it's cover, DON'T!!!!

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 story starts out picture perfect. A very well known vascular surgeon, Dr. Richard Kimble, who is played by Harrison Ford, has everything going well for him. That is until he is falsely accused and convicted of his wife's murder. And the basis on which he is being convicted isn't even hardcore evidence. It's all circumstantial. So, while he is being taken to the prison he has been sentenced to, another convict stabs a preoccupied guard, which causes a huge car wreck. Kimble manages to escape and ultimately goes on a mission to find out who the real killer of his wife is. The only problem is that he is being hunted by a very persistent U.S. marshal (Tommy Lee Jones). Through various hidden identities, favors, and manipulations, Kimble will not stop, and refuses to be caught until he finds out what really happened that day. The excellent action scenes and real life scientific correlations makes this movie more realistic than you'd think it could be. This movie also has a sequel, U.S. MARSHALS, which is just as good.

The Fugitive was directed by Andrew Davis. With The Fugitive, Davis proves to be one of the best action directors working today, fully displaying the ability to create tension, excitement, and electrifying action. Notably impressive is how he depicts Mrs. Kimble's murder, an event that could have been easily exploited, in brief and chilling black-and-white flashbacks. The screenplay by Jeb Stuart and David Twohy is one of the most intelligent and suspenseful action scripts in recent memory. But their real achievement is creating two strong, intelligent, and unforgettable characters: the emotionally wounded but unshakable Kimble and the well-meaning but obsessively determined Gerard.Those characters come to life under the able hands of Ford and Jones. Although given little dialogue to say, take one look at Ford's face at any given moment and you know Kimble's feelings, motivations, and thoughts. The motive in the story you dont find out at first but around the end of the money the excitement comes. You will find out why he got set up.The story builds up for ou can find out about the docter switchingsamples to the same ones so they can have good results.A film with style, wit, intelligence, and excitement, it is not just a great action film. It's a great film, period.

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?

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!

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.

He does every thing in his power to prove that he didn't kill his wife. If you would like to know the rest of the movie go rent it!!!!

The Fugitive is a good movie. It's about and man named Richard Kimble who is was sent to prison for the murdering of his wife. The action really starts when he escapes from prison and start looking for his wife's real killer. He has one clue about the killer, that is that he has one fake arm. When I first saw the Fugitive as a child I wasn't really interested but now that I'm older I can really understand the things in movie that I wasn't able to understand when Ii was a child. I would really reccomend this movie because its not only full of action but it also scientific.

I really enjoyed watching ''The Fugitive.'' One reason why I enjoyed watching it was because it was never a dull moment in the movie it was just moving like clock work. Another reason why I liked the movie was because it was mixed with mystery and action which is what really caught my attention. As you watch the movie it'll leave you in suspense as to what's going to happen next and who did what? ''The Fugitive'' make you think and never gives away the what happens until the end which is another reason why I love the movie. I would recommend to everyone to go see the movie because it is really exciting.

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. Ricard Kimbal is charged with the murder of his wife. Now it's up to science to prove them wrong. Richard testifies that he is not guilty but all the evidence seems to point his way. 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.

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.

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!!

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.
