Rotten: wholly lifeless

- Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com, Wednesday, July 7, 2010

Rotten: ...it's awfully difficult to look past the almost laughably inept instances of plotting within Giglio's screenplay...

Audience Reviews

3 stars

Had the rest of this film been as good as it's twist then I would have rated this much higher. The storyline itself was enjoyable, but somehow slumped somewhat in the middle. An evolving performance from Ryan Phillippe, but this film was very much highs and lows with nothing much in the middle.

"Chaos" is an average and predictable movie. What really makes me laugh about these crime thrillers ala "Inside Man" / "Usual Suspects" is that, when they end up making a mess of a movie, the screenwriter has to put up some extra scenes where everything has to be explained. Don't get me wrong, I understod from the start what was going on, so I think it's a way to underestimate the viewers intellect. "Chaos" starts in an interesting way. But then it starts to drag a lot. The action also is below average. I expected a hell of a lot more from a movie starring Statham and Snipes. P.S "Inside Man + "Usual Suspects" kick ass...

It's Inside Man meets Heat meets The Usual suspects. A mind-blowing and razor-sharp suspense-thriller that will keep you guessing right till the very end. Explosive non-stop action and breathtaking suspense. A pulse-pounding and heart-racing plot thats is gripping as it is electrifying with great twist and turns. Cool and character driven. A full-throttle, exciting and riveting action-packed thrill-ride. Sizzeling, smart, crackeling and well excuted in it's style. It's a real major kick of adreniline. Thribes on intelligence of it's plot and the strenghts of it's characters. Jason Statham and Ryan Phillippe are outstanding. Wesley Snipes is teriffic.
