Rather good little film with exciting sequences,
This review is from: Chain Reaction  [DVD] (DVD)
Ah yes; yet another underrated Keanu Reeves film. This one comes from the director of "The Fugitive", and co-stars Morgan Freeman, and so has good credentials. Keanu acquits himself well and is both likeable and believable as a student machinist. His chemistry with Rachel Weisz (they're teaming up again for the forthcoming "Constantine") is also sweet and unforced.
But lets face it, this is the kind of movie in which you expect high-octane thrills, and in this the movie does not disappoint. There are stunning opening and closing sequences, and a superb chase sequence involving a bridge.
The DVD comes with one of those promotional 'featurettes' that aren't really worth bothering. On the plus side, the picture quality and soundtrack are both very decent. If you didn't catch this at the flicks or on TV, it's well worth a purchase.
