Plot summary
1 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kimble is recognized by a small girl at a country store who sees his wanted poster. Kimble flees into the wilderness. Sheriff Morgan Fallon (actor Don Gordon) sets out after Kimble in a helicopter. Meanwhile, retired sheriff Samuel Cole (actor Arthur O'Connell) sets out to find and capture Kimble using old fashioned methods.

Sheriff Cole lost his job 10 years earlier after believing a prisoner who falsely told him he was innocent, who then went on to kill others. Cole wants to prove himself, and make up to the community for his earlier mistake in judgment.

Cole sets a trap and easily captures Kimble, but after Sheriff Fallon arrives, the two of them compete over who will get to bring Kimble in and get the credit. The ruthlessness of Fallon often comes up short against the cleverness of Cole, but if either of them wins, Kimble will lose.
