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

Format: DVD
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.

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?

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! :-)

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

I am a giant Statham fan and it doesn't hurt that the production and direction and plot formula surrounding his movies always delivers!

So here he is again kicking ass and in this one we get to see one of the greatest chase scenes in Hollywood History.

Stathan NEVER lets you down!

Thoroughly enjoyed Chaos, the story of a po-leese officer that had been removed from duty by a claim of illegal activity, but was recalled to duty to investigate a bank robbery, a very high interest action where the Captain wanted him to do the investigation. Some unsuspected things went on in the film, and was over very good. Jason Statham played a good role.

Another winner of a film is the 2005 showing of "Chaos". It is written and directed by Tony Giglio and is currently available on NetFlix Instant Download Streaming.

The surprise ending is worth the wait and proves the magnetic character that Statham assumes.
