The Fugitive

While many of us think of Harrison Ford as Han Solo or Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford starred in a string of awesome action thrillers in the 90s (for example Air Force One) and The Fugitive is one of them. This is based on a 1960s TV series, but I have actually never seen that so I have always just taken The Fugitive as it is.

The Movie Review

One of the things that is fun about this movie is that it gave us the “It wasn’t me, it was the one armed man” bit by Jim Carrey in The Mask and that is awesome. I remember seeing trailers for The Fugitive as a kid and the fact that it had Han Solo in it made me want to see it and I remember not being entirely sure what I was getting into as I would have been 12 at the time, but I did actually really enjoy the movie. This was one of the first movies I ended up getting when I started collecting laserdiscs so I have always had a soft spot for it.

The Plot

The plot of the movie revolves around Harrison Ford’s character, Dr. Richard Kimble. Kimble has the worst day ever when he returns home and finds his wife murdered and all the evidence points towards him! I love the way that this movie gets going right from the start and it is a movie that never really takes its foot off the gas.

Dr. Kimble saw a one armed man and tries to tell Samual Gerrard this, but it falls on deaf ears and Kimble is sentenced to death!  Samual Gerrard is a hard-nosed U.S Marshall and he does not care for Kimble’s story and pretty much ignores it. Tommy Lee Jones plays the role of Marshal Gerrad and he is so awesome in this role, a role that he would get to reprise a few years later in U.S Marshals.

The Chase

On his way to death row, Kimble manages to escape and he goes about putting together what happened the night his wife was murdered to try and find the real killer. Of course, while Kimble is chasing down this one armed man, Marshal Gerrard is on the hunt for him as in his eyes, Kimble is guilty!

Twists and Turns

There are some great twists and turns in The Fugitive and there is a big conspiracy that Kimble finds himself in the middle of. The fast pace of the movie makes it very exciting to watch, even when you know how it is all going to end. There are some pretty intense action scenes here too and I have always found this to be a fun and exciting movie that still holds up really well.

4K Restoration

They made a special 4K 30th anniversary version of this and it is such a great 4K. You very rarely hear this talked about, but The Fugitive 4K looks spectacular and is one of the best 90s 4K restorations. It also has a rocking Dolby Atmos soundtrack too which is epic. There was so much love and care put into this and it really shows in every regard.

A Timeless Classic

If you have not seen The Fugitive or even if you have not seen it for a very long time, I highly recommend you watch this. Harrison Ford was on fire in the 90s and made so many great movies and I would have to say that The Fugitive is close if not at the top of that list. It is a thrilling, exciting movie that never lets up, it is truly an absolute classic of the 90s!
