Towards the end of the production shoot, the cast and crew had to wait several days without filming for Robert Downey, Jr. to show up and finish the movie. The only scenes left to shoot were the hospital scenes, and there was no way to shoot without him there. He finally arrived and finish his scenes, reportedly without feeling the need for an explanation or an apology to the people who waited. See more »

U.S. Marshals has Tommy Lee Jones as Sam Gerard, his Oscar winning role from The Fugitive, chasing after Wesley Snipes. After a quite spectacular plane crash, the hunt is on. Snipes trying to prove he's innocent of crimes he didn't commit and Jones and his team of bloodhounds relentlessly searching for him. There is no skimping on the action and the leap from a building to a moving train is one nifty stunt. The only trouble I have is that you don't care enough about Wesley Snipes' character as you do for Harrison Ford in The Fugitive. Wesley Snipes is a former spy in the film, and he uses his skills to evade the cops. Ford was just a doctor, with no special training at all. Still, for an action film, this one delivers.
