One of Harrison Ford‘s best films is this marvellous action film inspired by the sixties television show. He’s a well-respected doctor who comes home one day to find his wife () murdered and the evidence pointing towards him. Managing a prison break soon after being sentenced, he has to keep on the lam from the law until he can clear his name and prove that he didn’t commit the crime. Tommy Lee Jones gives the film its pulse in his brilliant portrayal of the FBI agent nipping at Ford’s heels. Look for Julianne Moore in an early role as a hospital doctor.
