Chaos

Chaos is quite an entertaining watch. Featuring Jason Statham, Ryan Phillippe, and Wesley Snipes, the film is the perfect amalgamation of a bank heist, chase, and con caper. What the director, Tony Giglio, does is intertwine the three genres so well that it becomes hard to distinguish where one stars and the other ends.

Full of action and expected paper thin dialogue, the movie follows Statham's Quentin Conners and Phillipe's Shane Dekker as they try and track down bank robber Lorenz (Wesley Snipes) and his team. I do like that the movie stays on track and does not deviate from its main plot with unnecessary sub-plots and comes together beautifully towards the end. The twists, and there are a few, are both predictable in some cases and surprising in others. A word of advice; refrain from reading about the movie on imdb because if you were to go through the cast list, you are bound to figure out the second biggest twist in the movie.

On the negative side I was extremely disappointed with the lack of a meaty role that should have been given to Wesley Snipes. His potential is hardly explored as the movie focuses primarily on Statham and Phillippe. Although the production value of the film feels considerable with the action sequences, there is still a certain "IT" factor that the movie lacks.

Chaos proceeds at just the right pace for an action flick. It succeeds in captivating the audience by making them guess the outcome of the story at every stage of the film. A must watch for Statham fans and for those who enjoy a bit of mystery in their stories, Chaos gets a 3.5 out of 5 star rating from me.
