Double pack of Harrison Ford action adventure movies. In 'The Fugitive' (1993) Ford stars as eminent Chicago surgeon Dr Richard Kimble. Married to wealthy heiress Helen (Sela Ward), he arrives home one night to find her murdered and a one-armed man in his house. Due to incriminating evidence and prime motivation, Kimble is wrongly convicted for murder. However, on his way to death row he is involved in a spectacular train crash that precipitates his escape. Kimble then strives to prove his innocence, whilst staying one step ahead of the dogged US Marshal Sam Gerard (an Oscar-winning Tommy Lee Jones). 'Firewall' (2006) stars Ford as Jack Stanfield, an average Seattle family man who heads up the hi-tech security team at his local bank. Following a seemingly trivial case of identity theft, Jack's life is turned upside down when his wife (Virginia Madsen) and two children are kidnapped. The ransom is $100 million, which the kidnappers, led by Bill Cox (Paul Bettany), want Jack to obtain for them via his expert computer skills. Initially compliant, Jack is soon irked by Cox and his cronies to the point where he decides to risk everything to get his family back and bring the bad guys to justice.
