Goofs

Condolences are received from the British "Royal Academy" on the death of Dr. Alistair Barkley. The "Royal Academy" is an Arts institution; perhaps the writers' meant the "Royal Society." (Founded in 1660, the Royal Society is the independent scientific academy of the UK, dedicated to promoting excellence in science.) See more »

Crazy Credits

As the end credits come to the end, the music fades out and a rumble gets louder and louder. This is the start of a shockwave resulting from the massive explosion at the end of the film. The viewpoint is of Keanu Reeves who by now is in a helicopter and comes straight on screen after the last of the credits has gone up. The ground implodes briefly and you hear Agent Ford say "Whoa!".

A very enjoyable 90s flick in the same vein as The Fugitive....
6 October 2012 | by koffeenkreame41-1See all my reviews

Simply put, one of my favorite movies of the 90s, because I'm a big fan of the Fugitive. This plot follows it adds a bit of a new age spin on it. Enjoyable flick with very good actors and a cast that features Keanu Reeves, Morgan Freeman, Fred Ward, Brian Cox, Rachel Weisz and many others, highly recommended if you're a fan of the Fugitive or U.S. Marshalls!

The story is about a chemist & his friend suspected of murdering their mentor and Reeves & Weisz receive help from a friend of their fallen colleague and they try and find out who is trying to frame them for murder. Much like The Fugitive, which ironically is done by most of the same crew and features some of the actors from that film, it's a great flick to pass the time on.
