Watchable 'Fugitive' style film
21 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Harmful Intent isn't one of the best films ever made but it is watchable, especially if you are a Tim Matheson fan. Also the Bounty Hunter character is a hoot to watch - he is probably the best redeeming feature of the film in fact. I thought this film was very much like Harrison Ford's The Fugitive, only much MUCH lower budget. Tim Matheson is made to wear a seriously dodgy wig at the beginning and a tash so that later he can 'disguise' himself by shaving the tash and cutting/dying his hair, which is actually Tim's real appearance if you know what I mean. I liked it, so if it comes on TV sometime I'd recommend you to watch it and see for yourself.
