The Fugitive

 (1993)

The Fugitive Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Harrison Ford is prison escapee Dr. Richard Kimble, a Chicago surgeon falsely convicted of killing his wife and determined to prove his innocence by leading his pursuers to the one-armed man who actually committed the crime. Tommy Lee Jones is Sam Gerard, an unrelenting bloodhound of a U.S. Marshal. They are hunter and hunted. And as directed by Andrew Davis (Under Siege), their nonstop chase has one exhilarating speed: all-out.

For more about The Fugitive and the The Fugitive Blu-ray release, see the The Fugitive Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Harrison Ford, Tommy Lee Jones, Sela Ward, Joe Pantoliano, Jeroen Krabbé, Julianne Moore

The Fugitive Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The consensus among those familiar with Warner's prior Blu-ray of The Fugitive seems to be that the same transfer has been used for this 1080p, AVC-encoded 20th Anniversary version. Regardless of whether this is a new scan or a refinement of the old one, the Blu-ray's image accurately captures the flat, wintry look of the Chicago cityscape where most of The Fugitive plays out (although some of the early sequences were shot in North Carolina). This "urban naturalist" style is typical of cinematographer Michael Chapman (Primal Fear, Rising Sun), although he can deliver a hyper-real look when required (Taxi Driver).

The detail is impressive, both in the many closeups of Ford and Jones, and in larger crowd scenes, such as the chaotic chase in the lobby of the Daley Center and the St. Patrick's Day parade. Having read many complaints about aliasing and other visual artifacts on the previous Blu-ray, I was alert for any such defects in this presentation, but I saw none. Black levels in key night scenes, such as the early escape sequence and the chase on the Hilton rooftop late in the film, are appropriate, and contrast is never overstated.

The Fugitive isn't a particularly grainy film, but it does have a natural grain pattern, which did not appear to me to have been scrubbed away or oddly manipulated in any of the ways that leave noticeable artifacts. Nor did I spot any edge halos or other indicators of artificial sharpening. The average bitrate of 25.29 Mbps is within the range of what compressionists seem to aim for with action films today (and certainly an improvement on the prior Blu-ray's reported 20.96 Mbps). If there were compression artifacts, they were too subtle for my eye.


The Fugitive Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

From the very begining of The Fugitive, when the initial credits open and close like bars and the soundtrack clangs like prison doors, the Blu-ray's lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 track provides powerful support to the film's suspense. The clanging sounds echo through the surround field as they segue into something more like the blows struck by the one-armed man against Helen Kimble, and then like the gavel of the judge who sentences her husband to be executed. The sonic mix that accompanies the bus accident and train crash register forcefully with a harsh sound of screaming metal. The roar of the water running through the dam sluices accompanies Gerard's chase of Kimble through the drain tunnels, and the police helicopter that pursues Kimble on the roof of the Hilton in the film's climactic sequence can be heard flying around the room. Bass extension may not be as deep as on some more recent soundtracks, but the low frequencies register with sufficient force to make the point.

Dialogue is generally clear, although Gerard and his deputies are often purposely overlapped so that repeat viewings sometimes reveal stray bits of banter. James Newton Howard's score is one of his very best, and it's instantly recognizable. The new "Thrill of the Chase" documentary contains a telling comparison of a scene played with and without the score.
