  • 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

  • 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

  • Like its precursor, U.S. Marshals has lots of action and the Jones groupies are likeable. Though the overall picture isn't as fine-tuned or character driven, it still delivers what moviegoers want to see - a fast-paced and entertaining chase. show more
