* LawfulNeutral: Deputy Marshal Sam Gerard is an example of the LawfulNeutral police officer. He's simply trying to catch the escaped prisoner, as demonstrated by this quote:
-->'''Kimble''': I didn't kill my wife!
-->'''Gerard''': I don't care!

* BillingDisplacement:
** Creator/JulianneMoore is billed fourth in the film, although she wasn't a well-known star at the time of its release and her character only has a few minutes of total screen time (and zero relevance to the plot). This initially wasn't the case -- Moore's character was originally written to have a much larger role as an ally and a [[TokenRomance love interest]] for Kimble.
** Sela Ward, as the doomed Helen Kimble, doesn't get much more screen time, and she's billed third -- though this is justified, as her character is also an example of SmallRoleBigImpact.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The entire soundtrack by James Newton Howard. Awesome enough [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qy1k4ezoF74 that cues of it]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1KHQKFo6m4 were recycled]] for the ([[TooGoodToLast short-lived]]) remake TV series.

* HilariousInHindsight: HarrisonFord plays an innocent Doctor framed for the murder of his wife. Years later in ''Film/WhatLiesBeneath'', he plays a doctor trying to kill his wife.
** Kimble disguising himself as a hospital janitor is amusing given that Neil Flynn (the Janitor from ''Scrubs'') has a small role in the film.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: Although the visual effects are good, especially for the time (see below), the shots where Kimble falls from the waterfall use a very obvious dummy.

* EnsembleDarkHorse: Creator/HarrisonFord held the movie together with his portrayal of Kimble, but it was TommyLeeJones who really stole the film as the no-nonsense Gerard. It's telling that they made a SpinOff for Gerard in ''Film/USMarshals''.

** Forget that, how about a drug company doing its best to sell a drug they ''know'' is toxic? [[http://www.alternet.org/story/147467/pfizer%3A_the_drug_giant_that_makes_bank_from_drugs_that_can_kill_you/ Ridiculous!]]

** During the train crash scene, the way the train cars decouple and smash into the ground make it seem as though the train is ''actively trying to kill'' Kimble as he scrambles to safety.
