release year:1998 genre:action/suspense viewing setting:theater, 3/8/98 what I expected:a spinoff, not a sequel what I got:a pretty good spinoff
synopsis:Federal Marshal Gerard (who caught the Fugitive) ends up going after a dangerous escapee who is not what he seems.
impressions:Well-paced and entertaining. It never slowed down, and it had an intelligent script. It wasn't so much a sequel as a spinoff, which is probably a good thing.
acting:Tommy Lee Jones did an outstanding job, Wesley Snipes did a good job, Robert Downey Jr. did a good job.
final word:Definitely worth watching, especially if you liked the Gerard character from The Fugitive.
