    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    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

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    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

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The result is unconvincing and disorganized. Yes, there are some spectacular stunts and slick special effects sequences. Yes, Jones is right on the money, and Snipes makes a sympathetic fugitive. But it's the story that has to pull this train, and its derailment is about as definitive as the train crash in the earlier film. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    The action sequences were often nail-biters, the lead characters were well-developed, and the dialogue was intelligent. show more

    Who really wants to go to an escape movie and have to work this hard to figure it out? show more

    To make the package look fresh, there's a pile of complications. show more

    Generic, uninspired and devoid of suspense. show more
