An airplane bearing gruff U.S. Marshal Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) crashes in the wilderness. On board the same flight is Mark Sheridan (Wesley Snipes), a federal prisoner accused of double murder, who escapes during the ensuing chaos, but not before rescuing several people from the wreckage.

  • Going after one innocent man was bad enough. Going after another constitutes a pattern. This marshal isn't a hero. He's a menace. show more

  • You don't get the sense that too many enthusiasts are hanging up wanted posters for the ho-hum-ish U.S. Marshals. [6 March 1998, pg. 04.D] show more

  • Tommy Lee Jones seems to have misplaced the flinty resolve, gruff charm and fatherly concern that defined his earlier outing. [6 March 1998, p. 48] show more
