    The Fugitive is the best movie of the summer and one of the best of the year. It's an action film that delivers everything a modern audience expects, and it's also a serious drama with strong characters and intense performances. [6 Aug 1993, p.C1]

    A tense, taut and expert thriller that becomes something more than that, an allegory about an innocent man in a world prepared to crush him. show more
