Editorial Reviews

Hang on tight for non-stop action in this high-speed romantic action comedy starring Charlie Sheen and Kristy Swanson. When a falsely accused bank robber (Sheen) decides to escape, he grabs the nearest hostage- a billionaire's daughter (Swanson) with an ideal getaway car. Pursued by a multitude of police cars and an equal amount of outrageous media coverage, the unlikely twosome races toward the Mexican border and into unexpected romance.

I have noticed people posting their troubles in attempting to locate "The Chase" Original Soundtrack. I too have attempted to locate this soundtrack with great trouble. However, I did not locate the soundtrack but did find a webpage that took the time to post the titles and artist of the music from the movie. And adding to my speculation the page also posted their being unable to locate the soundtrack aswell, making me belive there might not have been an acual soundtrack released. Oh, yeah, oh yeah, and the movie was cool to.
The Soundtrack is as follows:
1. Breakdown - One Dove
2. The Next Life - Suede
3. Macho Man - Stephen Stuart Short
4. Two Babies in the Dark - Bad Religion
5. Forever and A Day - Offspring *
6. Our Own Way - Down by Law
7. Shine - The Rollins Band
8. House - Dan Carlson
9. Adina - Rancid
10. Take It Like a Man - Offspring
11. The Bottle - Rancid
12. Please Play This Song on the Radio - NoFX
13. Warm - NoFX

Okay, I've been a die hard Charlie Sheen fan for a while now but I just recently saw The Chase on TV. I was really really impressed with it. It was funny, suspenseful, and romantic. And may I say that Charlie was absolutely gorgeous in it!!!!! Also I thought that having Flea and Anthony from Red Hot Chilli Peppers was a hilarious addition. Oooh, and also Cary Elwes, another personal favourite hot guy of mine, had a small part in the movie as well. This was a great movie and I recommend it to anyone!

This is one of my favorite movies of all time. I found it in the action section although it's definitely more of a comedy.

The entire movie takes place during a highspeed chase. Out of desperation, Charlie Sheen kidnaps Kristy Swanson and the police pursuit begins. Just from reading the story, you might think it's boring watching a a police chase that lasts the entire length of the movie. It's definitely not boring. The police chase "takes a back seat" to the dialogue between Kristy and Charlie. Some of the scenes are so ridiculous that you'll have to see them for yourself.

This is a great movie to watch during a date. Plus, it has Henry Rollins and Anthony Kiedis / Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers. Buy it now!

There is not to many movies that I like that Charlie made. This happens to me one that I like. Its funny and yet its also a romance. Its about he got arrested for something he didn't do. So he runs and ends taking this car and kidnapping the owner of the car. She ends up falling in love with him during the time of the ride. She ends up getting him out of being arrest and they end up in Mexico.

While this may be the typical car chase film with the Keystone Cops in hot pursuit the scenery is great and the stars are nice to look at! Charlie Sheen and Kristy Swanson make a great team once she accepts the fact he has kidnapped her and her and her "beemer".

Charlie Sheen has never been a great actor .... he didn't disappoint or impress in this film. I collect car chase films, and expected more racing, chasing, crashing, than what I saw .... maybe expecting something more Wraith like .... but it was necessary for my collection so now joins it.

A very funny movie. Charlie kind of gets trapped into kidnapping Kristy Swanson at head from L.A. to Mexico. Good cast and keeps you entertained the whole way through. Just what a movie should do and it has a fun cast as well.

This movie is so great! It's very funny, and includes an amazing soundtrack that I've been trying to track down for years. (I've all but given up on that chase though) Like many other skeptics, I'm beginning to wonder if they ever printed a copy of it, but supposedly the track listing went like this:

1. Breakdown - One Dove

2. The Next Life - Suede

3. Macho Man - Stephen Stuart Short

4. Two Babies in the Dark - Bad Religion

5. Forever and A Day - Offspring *

6. Our Own Way - Down by Law

7. Shine - The Rollins Band

8. House - Dan Carlson

9. Adina - Rancid

10. Take It Like a Man - Offspring

11. The Bottle - Rancid

12. Please Play This Song on the Radio - NoFX

13. Warm - NoFX

Even without the soundtrack, this movie is great! Easily worth 9 bucks. It features great performances by under-rated greats such as Henry Rollins (as a hilarious cop), Josh Mostel(as his partner), and Carey Elwes as a ridiculous TV anchorman. Another great plus to this movie is the way it pokes fun at the mainstream news media and their sensationalism. Highly recomended!!!
