The Fugitive: Six Years Later
28 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

A truck transports very important content, but the driver (David Janssen) is unclear what the content is?

I am the seventh person to review this film! However, I don't think that figure suggests a lack of interest in this TV movie, but rather a lack of worldwide screenings: I don't think anybody has seen it! (I just found it on YouTube).

I did not turn to this flick because I am big on truck movies. I went to it because I like David Janssen, who is best known as Richard Kimble in QM's The Fugitive series (1963-67).

Kimble was on the road for 120 Fugitive episodes and he always found time to find a cute girl, well guess what...both things happen all over again in this film! But that is good, this sort of feels like "The Fugitive: Six Years Later" with ten times more action than usual.

And as with all Fugitive episodes, it is very well scripted.

Hijack might not be the most memorable flick ever made, but it is very well made with fine location filming, action, gun play and a great ending!
