It isn't just a high-powered summer blockbuster. It's something cannier (and rarer): a suspense thriller rooted in character.
-Owen GleibermanFull Review
A first-rate thriller.
-Richard SchickelFull Review
A consummate nail-biter that never lags, it leaves you breathless from the chase yet anxious for the next bit of mayhem or clever plot twist.
-Leonard KladyFull Review
Though it's a good half hour too long, this overblown 1993 spin-off of the 60s TV show otherwise adds up to a pretty good suspense thriller.
-Jonathan RosenbaumFull Review
Both stars have toughness and restraint that make their characters' battle of wits truly hypnotic, and in many ways more credible than it was on television.
-Janet MaslinFull Review
"Innovative" is not a legitimate description of The Fugitive, but "entertaining" is.
-James BerardinelliFull Review
Davis paints with bold visual strokes so that the movie rises above its action-film origins and becomes operatic.
-Roger EbertFull Review
A flurry of stunts, close shaves and deeds of desperate daring, it easily transcends its television origins to become a stylish pacemaker-buster on the order of "Die Hard, MD."
-Rita KempleyFull Review
A juggernaut of exaggeration, momentum and thrills.
-Desson ThomsonFull Review
Heart-pounding thriller with great acting.
-Scott G. MignolaFull Review
Taut, effective serial-chase story.
-Steven D. GreydanusFull Review
A rare example of everything in the Hollywood machine coming together in the right way at the right time and working perfectly.
-Jeffrey M. AndersonFull Review
Real escapist cinema.
The performances transform this otherwise orthodox cat-and-mouse movie into a gripping experience.

Tommy Lee Jones offers the fun and drive of this largely implausible but highly enjoyable remake of the popular TV series.
-Emanuel LevyFull Review
One of the better attempts at turning a TV show into a movie.
-Ken HankeFull Review
Relentless action + strong Ford and Tommy Lee performances make this a classic.
Ford and Jones make admirable adversaries, Ford a resourceful but vulnerable hero and Jones a tough and relentless cop with a touch of compassion....
-John J. PuccioFull Review
A hair-raising, adrenaline-charged chase movie.
A glossy, formula chase movie with the requisite number of extravagant action sequences (most notably a massive train crash).
-Geoff AndrewFull Review
In a morally confused age, a take-no-prisoner, seemingly heartless predator like Tommy Lee Jones' Gerard could easily be elected to high political office.

Excellent battle-of-wits thriller led by stars Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones.
The opening scene is powerful and puts you on the edge. This film works!
Good but overrated. Exciting, but mystery falls short. Bad guy comes out of nowhere.
...still stands up today as it did eight years ago as the definitive example of how to make a summer movie right (heck; how to make any movie right).
-David NusairFull Review
Overrated, but fun.
Fast-paced and slickly enjoyable chase thriller.
Not only did they get their smarts by casting Harrison Ford and the engimatic Tommy Lee Jones, they wrote a script (screenplay by Jeb Stuart and David Twohy) that was filled with tension, sprinkled with suspense, choca-bloc with action, and for the most p
