OK.

Some films I'd recommend seeing and why:

U.S Marshals:




U.S. Marshal Sam Gerard made a name for himself in the case of Richard Kimble. Now he's back, this time chasing a fugitive that's always one step ahead. He's ruthless and deadly, caught in a web of conspiracy and betrayal. Accused, claiming to be innocent, of the murder of two special-ops agents, Mark Roberts escapes after a sudden plane crash. He sets out to track down the true conspirators and bring them to justice before they do to him. Gerard, in charge of the case, assisted by his old crew and a newcomer, John Royce, continue to track him across the country. However, as the U.S. Marshals come closer and closer to the truth, Gerard realizes that Roberts, whose real name is Sheridan, may be innocent. However, they too have stumbled into a conspiracy that got Sheridan caught; neither may come out alive.

A great film, amazing cast, great plot. It is a must see.

It's a sequel to The Fugitive:





This 1993 box-office smash partly adheres to the 1960s TV series on which it is based and partly goes off on several tangents of its own. Harrison Ford stars as Dr. Richard Kimble, convicted of murdering his wife. While being transferred to prison by bus, Kimble is involved in a spectacular bus-train collision (one of the best of its kind ever filmed). Surviving the disaster, Kimble escapes, vowing to track down the elusive professional criminal whom he holds responsible for the murder. Dogging the fugitive every foot of the way is U.S. marshal Sam Gerard (an Oscar-winning turn by Tommy Lee Jones), who announces his intention to search "every whorehouse, doghouse, and outhouse" to bring Kimble to justice. Unlike his dour TV-series counterpart Barry Morse, Jones plays the role with a sardonic sense of humor: when a cornered Kimble screams, "I didn't kill my wife," Gerard shrugs and famously replies, "I don't care." Once the premise has been established, scripters Jeb Stuart and David Twohy and director Andrew Davis pull off several audacious plot twists, ranging from Kimble's rendezvous with a sympathetic lab technician to a jaw-dropping dive into a huge waterfall. The second half of the film offers one surprise after another (including the true identity of the murderer), brilliantly avoiding the letdown that plagues many movie adaptations of old TV series. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi


Another fantastic film with a star studded cast. Very tense and on your seat thriller. Can't praise it enough.

The Negotiator:




In the midst of an elaborate conspiracy, an expert negotiator is driven to the edge when he's framed for the murder of his partner, as well as embezzling money from his department's pension fund. His only chance to prove his innocence is to take hostages himself, acquire the services of another expert negotiator, and find out who's running the conspiracy before it's too late. Written by Ted Walters

Another great film. Good cast and just great.




All three a must watch. Will add more when I can think of more, but these definitely need a mention. I think I might watch them again, if I've got them, so I can give a detailed review.
