After the plane crash, an Illinois State Police car can be seen in the background. The plane crashes 20 minutes (by air) outside of Memphis, and the border is about 200 miles from Memphis, so it's (barely) possible for the car to get there that fast. See more »
[coming in and seeing Sheridan holding Royce at gunpoint]
Freeze it. It is a long day for everybody. So, let's end it on a positive note.
Mark J. Sheridan:
For me or for you?
If everybody walks away breathing, everybody wins.
Mark J. Sheridan:
How long you're gonna let me live if I let you take me in, huh? Did you forget about the plane?
Look around you, you're caught.
[Sheridan looks around to see the rest of Gerard's team closing in on him]
C'mon Roberts. Let's go home.
Mark J. Sheridan:
No. You go home.

Solid and suspenseful, enjoyable the whole way through
I have never seen The Fugitive which is the predecessor to this film, but what I saw in U.S. Marshals, I don't think The Fugitive could be any better. U.S. Marshals is the action/ thriller film and fan of the genre would drool over.
The now Chief Deputy Marshal Samuel Gerard is once again after an escaped fugitive. Mark Sheridan has escaped from a plane wreck and is on the run for a crime he did not commit and Gerard, with his team, is close behind. Sheridan must find a way to avoid the Marshals and find out who really committed the crime he has been framed for. The action is well placed coming in short spurts (except for maybe the plane wreck) and works exceptionally well with the story.
The acting is exceptionally well done with Jones and Snipes giving some of there best performers in a long time. Tommy Lee Jones is quick thinking and likable in his role as Gerard and eventually works into be your favorite character. Snipes is only seen in short spirits until about the last 20 minutes which adds to the effect of him being evasive to the Marshalls. However, in his short scenes, he is able to fit into the role with relative ease.
The action sequences, as I said, is very well done and never over done. They are fast-paced and well acted. The special effects are also quite believable. With the excellent acting, gripping plot, and fast paced action sequences, the two hours fly by and make for a very enjoyable film.
