Overview

This 1993 box-office smash partly adheres to the 1960s TV series on which it is based and partly goes off on several tangents of its own. Harrison Ford stars as Dr. Richard Kimble, convicted of murdering his wife. While being transferred to prison by bus, Kimble is involved in a spectacular bus-train collision one of the best of its kind ever filmed. Surviving the disaster, Kimble escapes, vowing to track down the elusive professional criminal whom he holds responsible for the murder. Dogging the fugitive every foot of the way is U.S. marshal Sam Gerard an Oscar-winning turn by Tommy Lee Jones, who announces his intention to search "every whorehouse, doghouse, and outhouse" to bring Kimble to justice. Unlike his dour TV-series counterpart Barry Morse, Jones plays the role with a sardonic sense of humor: when a cornered Kimble screams, "I didn't kill my wife," Gerard shrugs and famously replies, "I don't care." Once the premise has been established, scripters Jeb Stuart and David Twohy and director Andrew Davis pull off several audacious plot twists, ranging from Kimble's rendezvous with a sympathetic lab technician to a jaw-dropping dive into a huge waterfall. The second half of the film offers one surprise after another including the true identity of the murderer, brilliantly avoiding the letdown that plagues many movie adaptations of old TV series.

Editorial Reviews

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.

    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).

    Great movie - what happened to Demmings

    I grew up with Poncho Demmings...who had a brief role as a prison guard who was killed on the bus. I thought the movie would catapault his career...but I know it is tough for black actors. Does anyone know if he's done any movies since the Fugitive. He isn't a household name...but he just dropped out of sight.

    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.

    Its OK

    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.

    fugitive review

    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.

    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!!

    Medical Portion of the Movie.

    The fugitive is a classic action packed movie, cpmplete with many chase scenes. Dr.Richard Kimble (Harison Ford) is running from the law, but as he tries to solve the mystery of who killed his wife, he uncoveres something else. Someone has stolen Dr.Kimble's experimental discovery data sample.It's up to him to uncover the mystery. He went back to the hospital were he had made his experimentations and got his reasearch done to find out some clues that can lead to the thief. With the help of another doctor from the hospital they investigated the case on the ''Down Low''.They came to find out that one of the doctors that were with him have been doing him dirty and stole his reasearch and changed the samples so the project can look like his own.Dr. Kimble went to the convention where Dr. Nichols (the thief) was presenting the experimental facts.But Dr. kimbles didn't let that happen and stop him from continuing and performing his evil act.Richard Kimbles made Dr. Nicols look bad in front of the whole press.

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?

    Now this is exciting!!!!!!!!!

    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.

    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.
