The plane goes into the water just off the riverbank, yet when Gerard opens the door it looks to be at least 150 feet away from the shore. See more »

These things are so cool.
They shoot underwater! You can pour sand in them and they'll shoot. Shoot every time. It's a good choice.

Okay, so "U.S.Marshalls" is basically just a remake of "The Fugitive". As such, it received lukewarm to cool reviews when it was in the theaters, unjustifiedly so, I think. Although the plot line is a ripoff of the earlier movie, this one does well in keeping us in suspense as to the story behind the central character, and the action is exciting and well-paced. Tommy Lee Jones of course "makes" the film, accompanied by the same cast of deputies as in the earlier movie. There are even "toppers" for the bus crash/train wreck and famous swan dive from the earlier movie. This is a very good escapist action flick.
