Product Description

After a deadly bank heist, Detectives Quentin Conners (Jason Statham) and Shane Dekker (Ryan Phillippe) are drawn into a mysterious case where nothing is what it seems. Pulling the strings is a criminal mastermind (Wesley Snipes) who seems to kill without warning or reason. Abound with random acts of violence and deception - the only hope for survival is finding an order to the chaos.

Amazon.com

An action-heavy thriller with a metaphysical twist, Chaos pits action stars of the past (Wesley Snipes) and present (Jason Statham from The Transporter) against each other in a race to uncover the truth behind a seemingly perfect heist. Statham (sporting a come-and-go American accent) is a troubled cop who is called out by Snipes' bank robber to stop him from executing a scheme that will end with not only all participants evading capture, but no money removed from the vaults. It's an engaging premise, and one made moderately more so by Snipes' interest in chaos theory, and director Tony Giglio orchestrates the action with a professional hand. Unfortunately, the pieces fall together in an entirely predictable manner, which stranded the leads (as well as Ryan Phillippe as Statham's rookie partner) in an overly familiar story and undermines the novel spin of Snipes' plan. Those looking for no-frills entertainment, or longtime fans of Statham and Snipes, will find it an agreeable timewaster. --Paul Gaita

According to one reference source, 'The name "chaos theory" comes from the fact that the systems that the theory describes are apparently disordered, but chaos theory is really about finding the underlying order in apparently random data.', and to enjoy the ride in this action film, understanding the chaos theory is helpful if not essential. In writing and directing CHAOS, Tony Giglio (as he explains in one of the featurettes on the DVD) worked to make an action movie that was more than just pyrotechnics and killing (though those are in abundance in this film!), and instead return to the atmosphere of older 'French Connection' type crime dramas. To accomplish this he uses the chaos theory to create just enough twists to keep the audience surprised. If the film doesn't open new doors for the genre, it certainly supplies enough entertainment to make it worth watching.

The film opens on a bridge in Seattle where an incident involving detective Quentin Connors (Jason Statham) and another unidentified detective results in Connors being dismissed from the police force. A sophisticated bank heist ensues and the head of the heist is one Lorenz (Wesley Snipes) who, when surrounded by the police after an explosion jolts the neighborhood, demands to negotiate the hostages situation with Connors: Captain Jenkins (Henry Czerny) and a new police recruit Detective Shane Dekker (Ryan Phillippe) recruit the reluctant, fired Connors to return to Seattle to take charge - with Dekker as his partner. From this point on the story is a mélange of mind-bending assaults on the back using the chaos theory to trace the elements of discovery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining!! August 29, 2009
By Jc
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this movie as it had more than it's share of twists & turns. The action is great, I like the actors & it's less than $10 for the Blu-ray right now, that's even less than the DVD! The video quality looked great on my 106" screen through my 1080p Mits HC5000 projector. Grab some popcorn, your favorite drink, sit back and enjoy the ride....with a little chaos along the way! :-)

3.0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't watch it again. April 7, 2008
Format:DVD
There was much not right with this film. I kept thinking while watching it that it wasn't smooth - that the actors were uncomfortable with the screenplay. The dialog came across as clipped too, almost like hearing a joke, and waiting for someone to laugh. And the editing was 2nd rate as well as I noticed a couple flubs. Anyway, I wouldn't recommend spending money to purchase. And it truly doesn't deserve 3 stars (2 1/2 at most). Just run of the mill.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chaos April 25, 2008
Format:DVD
This crime drama / action movie is surprisingly good. The main and supporting characters do a very good job, Wesley over acts a little but other than that first rate. I liked the ending although some people didnt, I thought it was good.

There are twists, some that arent super surprising, but it does keep you guessing throughout the movie was to who the evil mastermind is. The car chase in the middle of the movie with Ryan Phillipe was garbage though, it detracts from an otherwise smart movie with a very 1980's CHIPs style impossible fake car chase.

Overall well acted , well written with a couple small exceptions, and well done. Sort of like Inside Man meets The Transporter. I would recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great overlooked action flick March 16, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I am not a Statham fan, but picked this up for a gift and it was 9.99 - Wow, what a great movie. I cant believe it was that good. Blu ray quality was also excellent. Alot of twists and turns to the movie, kept my interest and I will watch it again. Can't go wrong w/this movie. Casting along w/acting was good

2.0 out of 5 stars a huge disappointment of a movie July 14, 2008
Format:DVD
Ok, wesley snipes has done some pretty bad movies lately including this one, but what on earth was Jason Statham doing in this terrible film? even he couldn't save this disaster. This movie is very slow paced and lacks action, It is more of a crime drama than an action movie but even the drama lacked suspense and mystery and i literaly had to force myself to keep watching the movie because i felt bored and uninterested.

This movie has an average star rating of almost 4 starts, don't fall for the hype!, if you want to see a good recent crime drama movie go watch jean-claude van-damme's "until death", Its a much better movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time...and I'm a Statham fan December 1, 2009
Format:DVD
2.2 stars

Bah, humbug. What a waste of time. If you have any feel for quality crime thrillers at all, you've got to laugh at this, in all the wrong ways.

Bad, hackneyed script. Wooden performances in general. Miserable direction; you can tell a bad director when every line out of everyone's mouth feels forced. This felt at nearly all times like a bad tv movie-of-the-week. I like Statham but he's wasted here and clearly needs a director with a better feel for realism. Snipes is ok and Phillippe is too, but his role is overwritten and just seems fake. I didn't buy one second of this movie.

Sure, there's a twist at the end, but when nothing that came before makes you care about the tale or the players, what's the difference? There are so many flicks of this ilk out there, and I'd recommend most of them before this insipid jello.

Passola.
