Synopsis: This is a sort-of sequel to The Fugitive featuring Sam Gerard and his team of the United States Marshal Service. During a prisoner flight one of the inmates tries to kill another prisoner and causes the plane to crash. The almost victim can escape during the evacuation and is now on the run. It’s up the U.S. Marshals to get him again.
But there’s a mystery surrounding this escapee because the United States Secret Service is interested in his capture and somehow even members of the Chinese embassy to the United Nations are involved. Very few things are what they seem.
My Opinion: I knew that face looked familiar but it took me a while to actually recognise Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man, Sherlock Holmes) because he still looked so young here.
Snipes is being good at being a hunted former special forces who’s one a mission of his own and Jones is being Samuel Gerard again.
I felt the death of Newman was unnecessary from the POV of the villain because he had nothing to gain from it in that moment and in the end cost him his life.
But it was an enjoyable action flick.
