In the final act of the movie, Royce says he got a "Glock 40" because he wants to emulate Samuel Girad. The Glock 40 model was not introduced until 2015, seventeen years after this movie was made. The nomenclature "Glock 40" does not refer to the model, as is typified by all Glock's handgun production line. Instead it refers to the caliber. In this case it refers to a Glock in .40 (dot-four-zero) caliber which would have likely been a Glock model 22, introduced in 1990. See more »

Okay, so "U.S.Marshalls" is basically just a remake of "The Fugitive". As such, it received lukewarm to cool reviews when it was in the theaters, unjustifiedly so, I think. Although the plot line is a ripoff of the earlier movie, this one does well in keeping us in suspense as to the story behind the central character, and the action is exciting and well-paced. Tommy Lee Jones of course "makes" the film, accompanied by the same cast of deputies as in the earlier movie. There are even "toppers" for the bus crash/train wreck and famous swan dive from the earlier movie. This is a very good escapist action flick.
