Communist Radicals hijack Air Force One with The U.S. President and his family on board. The Vice President negotiates from Washington D.C., while the President, a Veteran, fights to rescue the hostages on board.
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
When Sheridan (Wesley Snipes) rents his apartment across from the U.N. building, he tells the landlord, "It's perfect". This is the same line used by Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford) when he rents an apartment in The Fugitive (1993). See more »
When Cosmo and Royce are leaving New York City heading to the cemetery they are in a Suburban. When leaving the city it is a 3/4 ton Version (the steel wheels give it away). When they are seen on the road heading to cemetery, it is a 1/2 ton (aluminum wheels). When they get rammed at cemetery and it raises up, clearly 3/4 style wheels again. See more »
Cosmo, where are you?
[shouting over the New York traffic]
I'm in traffic! I'm in New York City! Where the hell do you think I am? We're on our way!

U.S. Marshals has Tommy Lee Jones as Sam Gerard, his Oscar winning role from The Fugitive, chasing after Wesley Snipes. After a quite spectacular plane crash, the hunt is on. Snipes trying to prove he's innocent of crimes he didn't commit and Jones and his team of bloodhounds relentlessly searching for him. There is no skimping on the action and the leap from a building to a moving train is one nifty stunt. The only trouble I have is that you don't care enough about Wesley Snipes' character as you do for Harrison Ford in The Fugitive. Wesley Snipes is a former spy in the film, and he uses his skills to evade the cops. Ford was just a doctor, with no special training at all. Still, for an action film, this one delivers.
