Product Overview

A student machinist (Keanu Reeves) finds himself caught in a maze of secret government cover-ups, hi-tech espionage and murder after working on a ground-breaking scientific experiment. Eddie Kasalivich (Reeves) and Lily Sinclair (Rachel Wiesz) are part of a team of scientists who have developed a revolutionary new source of energy. But no sooner have they finished celebrating their triumph, than their lab is destroyed and the head of their team killed. Named as the main suspects, Eddie and Lily quickly realize their only hope lies with a powerful and mysterious bureaucrat (Morgan Freeman) who may or may not be on their side.

ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Director Andrew Davis has lifted whole segments of Chain Reaction from another, better chase movie -- but at least he's had the good taste to steal from himself. Aspects of this film are likely to remind even the most oblivious movie-goer of The Fugitive, which Davis also directed. There's the man on the run, the supposed friend who's not as helpful as he first seems, and the lawman who, despite pursuing the protagonist, is actually on his side...The action sequences recall Mission Impossible, Eraser, and The Rock, albeit with less energy. The concept of government agents being bad guys has been used so often that it has long since turned into a tired cliche. Chain Reaction isn't dull -- the film is paced to keep audiences attentive -- but the lack of originality dampens its enjoyability.

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review Chain Reaction just has too much going on in it. The script seems to have been written by someone who is much more intelligent than your average audience; how else do you explain the bafflement created by eighteen seemingly different plots, twists, and turns?...Chain Reaction is not all horrible confusion. It does contain some very nice action sequences, as well as interesting characters. A scene that takes place over the Michigan Avenue drawbridge is a very fun set piece (though a bit implausible). Watching as Eddie scants up the slowly moving bridge is exhilarating and tense.
