Different Drama\Mystery
12 July 2005 | by tarbosh22000See all my reviews

"Fugitive Among Us" is a pretty good mystery\drama. Peter Strauss plays a cop on the edge. He wants to catch a really brutal criminal played by the always awesome Eric Roberts. I liked that that this movie was more of a drama. It doesn't have any action or need any. It's the tough performances that make it good. There are some slow moments, but both the Strauss and Roberts characters are both interesting enough to carry over the boring parts.

Any movie with Eric Roberts is great. He will always be better than his sister. Who cares if she has an Oscar, Eric always puts in a quality performance. If you don't believe me, watch "Stiletto Dance", "La Cucaracha" or "Star 80".
