The Fugitive – Starring Harrison Ford & Tommy Lee Jones

Posted by the editors on Monday, 19 December 2011

The Fugitive (1993)  Directed by Andrew Davis (Under Siege (1992), Collateral Damage (2002)), starring Harrison Ford (Witness (1985), The Devil’s Own (1997), Cowboys & Aliens (2011), and many more) and Tommy Lee Jones (Coal Miner’s Daughter (1980), JFK (1991), The Sunset Limited (2011)).  In this iconic thriller, brimming with action, Harrison Ford is excellent as fugitive falsely convicted murderer Dr. Richard Kimble and Tommy Lee Jones is superb as the hard, determined Deputy Marshall Samuel Gerard, a portrayal for which he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, whose task it is to track the equally determined Dr. Kimble.  Andrew Davis’ directing is tight and sharp, maintaining an exquisite level of tension throughout the film, aided by excellent special effects and highly effective music by James Newton Howard.  The supporting cast is without fault, including Julianne Moore, in a small role as an emergency room doctor.  If you haven’t seen The Fugitive, see it, and if you have seen the film, see it again.  It’s really that good.

See our posts on the film Extraordinary Measures with Harrison Ford, and the films In the Valley of Elah and No Country for Old Men, starring Tommy Lee Jones, and the film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, directed by, and starring, Tommy Lee Jones.  Also see our post on the film Chloe, starring Julianne Moore.

We recommend that you buy your DVDs and Blu-ray Disks.  Have a great personal film library..  Here are links to amazon.com for Amazon Instant Video, DVDs and Blu-ray Disks (in that order when available):
