    Sometimes, you can smell an action screenplay adapted to the demands of a franchise it was never written for a mile away. The Fugitive II: U.S. Marshals is such a screenplay. While the original had a corporate conspiracy to motivate the frame-up, this one goes into political thriller/spy stuff territory, which the Marshal Office task force from the previous film gets pulled into. With a stronger focus on the cops (who were more of an antagonist "force" in The Fugitive), I don't think we really get to care about Wesley Snipes' man on the run - he's pretty generic - and... really? Irene Jacob as his loyal girlfriend? Did the casting agent draw these actors out of a hat blindfolded? And it had started off quite well, with Tommy Lee Jones' persona contrasted in an undercover chicken suit, a chaotic home arrest, and then a cool plane crash to outdo the original's train wreck. But after that, it's really rather by the numbers, none of the action or tension really surprises, and Robert Downey Jr.'s character will only surprise you if you've never seen a movie before. 3 weeks 4 days ago

    Underrated sequel. Fast paced, great action and fine cast. Just after all the chasing…...the ending feels flat. 2 years 3 months ago
