The Fugitive (1993)

Dr. Richard Kimble, unjustly accused of murdering his wife, must find the real killer while being the target of a nationwide manhunt. (IMDb)

Ford is great as the dashing, daring, and resourceful Richard Kimble, making up a solid cat-and-mouse pair along with Jones’ entertainingly bullish and determined U.S. Marshal. The thrills of the chase plot are second to none, with plenty of close calls and cool cons that favour smart and tense action over cheap violence. Meanwhile, the murder intrigue that comes to the forefront in the film’s climax adds depth to the story, even if it doesn’t pack the same sort of punch.

7.6/10
