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.

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! :-)

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.

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

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.

This film is filled with action, car chases, shootings, fist fighting, anger, and suspense from the moment it begins when a detective (Jason Statham) is suspended from the police force because a daughter of a prominent politician is killed during a hostage taking. This is followed by an apparent bank robbery when some forty or more people are taken hostage and the senior robber (Wesley Snipes) insists that he will only negotiate with Statham. The police agree and Statham is reinstated. Matters go wrong, the bank blows up, and the robbers are able to escape. The police need to find out what was taken, who were the robbers, why did they want to negotiate with Statham, and catch them. Statham is portrayed as an angry man who believes that the only way to catch criminals is to "bend the law," a “Dirty Harry” type character. He is partnered with a young college-educated man who wants to live up to his "hero father," also a cop, who had died in service. Both Statham and the young men are very knowledgeable and resourceful.
The theme of the film is the "Chaos Theory": matters seem to be chaotic, unrelated, yet by analysis they can be seen to be related. Thus, despite the many actions and suspense, the film is filled with what may appear to be unrelated matters, red herrings, but are they?
