The Fugitive

“Richard, do you wanna get shot?!!”

Tommy Lee Jones isn’t messing around as U.S. Marshal Samuel Gerard, relentlessly chasing Harrison Ford’s accused wife-killer in one of the few remakes to achieve greatness.

Springing from the ’60s TV show of the same name, but adding its own twists and turns, plus one of the best train wrecks captured on film, this remains a superior thriller.

You have two intense actors warily circling one another, a great early-career cameo for Julianne Moore, and a slick mix of mystery and action courtesy director Andrew Davis.

A blockbuster which truly deserved its financial windfall.
