THE FUGITIVE
December 17, 2013  | By David Bianculli

IFC, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

Made 20 years ago, this movie version of the classic Sixties TV series flipped the central dynamic unintentionally, but very effectively, making this one of the better TV-to-film efforts ever produced. On TV, David Janssen’s Richard Kimble ran away with the show (in one sense, literally). But in this movie, though we root for Harrison Ford’s Kimble, it’s Tommy Lee Jones as his pursuing adversary who really keeps things moving. And moving. And moving even faster.
