Storyline

When a prisoner transport plane crashes, one prisoner, Mark Sheridan, skillfully escapes and saves lives at the same time. Deputy Sam Gerard and his team of U.S. Marshals pursue relentlessly, but Gerard begins to suspect that there is more to the exceptional fugitive than what he has been told. Meanwhile, Sheridan struggles to avoid capture while seeking answers of his own. Until the final scene, both Gerard and Sheridan are in jeopardy of the unknown. Written by OBGriffiths@yahoo.com

Speedy, inventive and very entertaining
12 March 2002 | by (Järvenpää, Finland) – See all my reviews

The only reason we have a film called "U.S. Marshals" is the cold fact that somebody was simply dying to see Tommy Lee Jones returning into his Oscar-awarded role as a tough, bold and unhesitating Deputy Marshal Samuel Gerard. At first I was thinking "just another foolish sequel" and I have to admit that at one point it more or less even looked like "U.S. Marshals" is basically the same film than "The Fugitive" but only with Wesley Snipes in the shoes of Harrison Ford. But this is the real and the final truth: from what I remember "The Fugitive" was like I never considered it as all that great but since I was definitely on the edge of my seat with "U.S. Marshals" only logical thing would be to assume that this was naturally a better movie.

I tried to avoid "U.S. Marshals" for many years (I've no idea why) but now when I finally saw it I was stunned by it. Interesting detail about this film as well as "The Fugitive" too is the peculiar fact that during the movie audience can't never really decide who's side their sympathies actually are and which one do they want to succeed: the innocent fugitive or Tommy Lee Jones' eminent marshal because clearly they're both equally heroes. "U.S. Marshals" is not a special thriller but it works splendidly as what it is and it doesn't try to be anything it isn't. Tommy Lee Jones is the ultimate star of the movie but Snipes is also pretty excellent as Sheridan. When you think of "U.S. Marshals" the impressive scene where Sheridan jumps onto the roof of a moving subway is already a classic. Still I'm sure that's not necessarily the only scene audience remembers. I don't know what you think but "U.S. Marshals" was a fine experience for me.
