Director: Stuart Baird
Cast: Tommy Lee Jones, Wesley Snipes, Robert Downey Jr., Kate Nelligan, Joe Pantoliano, Irene Jacob, Daniel Roebuck, Tom Wood, LaTanya Richardson, Michael Paul Chan, Patrick Malahide, Rick Snyder, Johnny Lee Davenport, Donald Li, Marc Vann
In this sequel to 1993's "The Fugitive," Chief Deputy Marshal Samuel Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) leads a team of law-enforcement officers on the trail of the fugitive, Mark Sheridan (Wesley Snipes). Sheridan just happens to be an ex-CIA agent accused of espionage and the murder of fellow officers.
