The Fugitive is a complex thriller with every detail playing a
significant role in the outcome of the movie. It's the story of a
conspiracy surrounding Dr. Richard Kimble, a surgeon who is on the run
while U.S Marshal Samuel Gerard tries to find an explanation of why
Kimble was framed for the murder of his wife. The movie has a sticking
nature to it, every detail in the actors face will prove that Harrison
Ford and Tommy Lee Jones deserve every praise they have received for
Based on the 1960's Television series, this movie does not disappoint.
It makes the watcher want to go back and view the original series to
see how it compares.
