(mbc.net) Mark Roberts (Wesley Snipes) is a Chicago tow-truck driver who is hospitalized following a collision. Officials find an unregistered handgun in Roberts' truck afterward, and discover that he is a fugitive wanted for a double homicide. U.S. Marshal Samuel Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) escorts Roberts on a flight to New York, where the murders originally occurred.
A group of Chinese prisoners are also aboard the plane; when a scuffle breaks out between them, a bullet pierces the cabin and depressurizes it. Roberts escapes following a crash landing, initiating a nationwide manhunt. Investigators soon learn that Roberts is not a mere criminal, however.
U.S. Marshals was a commercial success, earning $102 million at the box office -- easily recuperating its $60 million budget.
