    My Reaction to "Chain Reaction"

    Posted
    ragnar

    Andrew Davis' "Chain Reaction" stars Keanu Reeves and a pre-Oscar Rachel Weisz in a topical thriller that borrows a bit too heavily in it's plot structure from Davis' previous blockbuster, "The Fugitive". As such, it lends itself to constant comparison to the superior Ford and Jones starrer and, unfortunately, nothing in "Chain Reaction" can compete with their iconic work. Regardless, the film is still a servicable evening's entertainment. "Chain Reaction" was one of Fox's initial BLU-RAY offerings and it shows. The video transfer appears to be the original DVD's M-PEG 2 model repurposed for BLU-RAY. While it does boast a better image than the DVD, one can only imagine how much better this movie could look given a new VC-1 or AVC transfer. Audio-wise, the BLU-RAY offers a lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 track. While not always immersive, the film's many action sequences offer just enough aural stimulation to make the upgrade to BLU-RAY worthwhile for fans of the film. Also of note, "Chain Reaction" features a post-end credits coda. While not totally important to the film's plot, it offers a nice little home theater moment in it's own right.

    This movie is quite the classic! It has got everything from a good story line, to its humor and actors! Freeman does a great job, as ussual! The action and suspense can get fairly intense, but not all scary. I would definitely recommend this movie!

    Good movie for some action and lots of suspense. Very well done suspenseful action instead of just suspense or just action.
