A film which tells all the brando detractors that the great man did do a lot of great things in the 60s. The chase is a great movie on the inner demons of a southern town in Texas after the kennedy assasination.

The performances are brilliant, especailly brando who proves to all that he is the greatest actor there ever was and will be. (the scenes between angie dickinson and then his legendary beating up scene are worth the price of a ticket/dvd etc.

The direction is spot on and this movie could have been an all time classic if the director had been invloved in the editing, unfortunately the producer took things in his hand. Arthur Penn has extracted great performances all around.

Brando is in great form and his is the moral fibre which binds the town and in the end that very morality of the sherrif makes him leave the town.

I only whish that the studio has put in some extra features besides the trailor of the movie. That would have been the icing on the cake.

All in all, a great chase guranteed.

I realize I gave this flick 4 stars--but I also have to say that Brando gets the highest rating of 5 stars. This film could have been greater than it was...and it just may bother you for that reason. One of my problems is that it was shot on some studio backlot (probably Universal, as the set looks a lot like the set used for Back to the Future) the other weakness is Robert Redford. You want to see how great Brando was in everything he did? Just try to compare what he does with what others do? Your eyes are always drawn to him, no matter who else is in the scene with the guy--and this film had an all-star cast, too......
The other thing that bugged me about this picture is just this: could a punk breaking out of prison (as does the Redford character in the film) by the name of "Bubber" Reeves (who ends up being falsely accused of murder) cause so much turmoil and havoc in a redneck town like this? (Blame it on the screenwriters... Never read the novel the movie was based on, so can't comment on that aspect of it.)
My other complaint is also with the director, Arthur Penn. Someone else should have directed this thing--don't ask who, maybe someone like Kazan (who reportedly turned it down).
First saw this thing in the sixties in Chicago as a teen, and the damn picture, or rather the Brando character stayed with me all these years. He plays a decent man trying to do the right thing in a rinky-dink redneck Texas town, does his best to protect the Reeves character from the moronic townsfolk who are eager to "lynch" him without a trial even.
Checked the DVD out the night BEFORE Brando passed away, not sure why, just to see if the flick had withstood the test of time. Well, as you know, Brando passed on the very next day...

For some reason this movie is only rarely shown on television even though it has one of the greatest casts ever assembled.
Marlon Brando plays the reluctant, disillusioned, sheriff of a small southern town where the townsfolk party like maniacs and have so little respect for the law that several of them enjoy beating up the sheriff within an inch of his life. So many of the men in the town are rabid racists that it is uncomfortable and disturbing to watch at times. Pretty boy Robert Redford as "Bubba Reeves" escapes from prison, but he somehow never looks very uncomfortable, even though he has nothing but the prison clothes on his back. Come on Mr. Redford, at least get a little dirty and hungry once in a while! The crazy out of control townsfolk make a party and a celebration of hunting down the escaped convict. They bring so many roman candles to the huge junkyard of wrecked cars where "Bubba" is hiding that it is turned into a giant inferno. That is pretty exciting to watch.Those people are quite immoral and lecherously chase each other's wives around during a wild drunken decadent party. It is a sad commentary on human behavior indeed, but go ahead and check it out anyway for the great cast.

"The Chase" is a letdown only if you consider the starpower in front of and behind the camera. If I'm not mistaken, there was notorious wrangling behind the scenes between director Arthur Penn, scriptwriter Lillian Hellman, and producer Sam Spiegel. Usually when you have that kind of backstage melodrama the result on the screen is a mess of a film. That's not the case with "The Chase". The film deliberately takes it's time establishing the psychological make-up of the small sleepy town. Inject into that the word that the town's least favorite son has escaped from the pen and fireworks erupt. The lead up to the explosive finale is thrilling but lacks the resonance to make "The Chase" a classic film. See the film for the terrific performances not the least from star Marlon Brando in a laidback performance that isn't the least bit method as the town sheriff trying to keep the cork on the potential exploding powderkeg. Robert Redford as the escaped con and Jane Fonda as his cheating spouse give performances to suggest the better things to come. Also noteworthy is Robert Duvall and Janice Rule as a cuckold and his promiscuous spouse.
