"Chain Reaction" takes place in the not-so-far future. The world's resources are disappearing and wars are breaking out because of this. So together a team of research scientist are working on a way to use water (H2O) to use as energy. Working on the project include Paul Shannon (Morgan Freeman), mechanic Eddie Kasalivich (Keanu Reeves) and physicist Lily Sinclair (Rachel Weisz). After years of work, the experiment has become a reality! But before any of the news could be told to anyone, the lab is destroyed including also the four block radius of the place. Before anything can be explained, Eddie and Lily are framed for conspiracy against the government to steal their work to sell to other governments. Eddie and Lily are now fugitives being hunted down by the FBI headed by Leon Ford (Fred Ward) and Doyle (Kevin Dunn). Since everyone believes that they are terrorists and traitors, Eddie and Lily must set out themselves to find out the truth of the matter.
I must say that "Chain Reaction" was a little better than I expected it to be, except on the whole it didn't measure up to any of my favorite movies. Good points of the movie are: 1) The three main actors Keanu Reeves, Morgan Freeman, and Rachel Weisz do a pretty good job in portraying their characters. I also liked the FBI agent played by Fred Ward. 2) The action sequences were actually quite good, the best part of the movie being the 'bridge' scene and of course, the end was exciting! 3) The locations were interesting, from imaginary places in the future and also some actual locations. But the disappointing part of the movie (which made it a 3 star movie for me) is because of the plot. The whole general plot and outline was a good one, interesting yet believable.

Why the hell would you name a film after a Diana Ross classic? (Or a Steps 'classic', depending what generation you're from!) OK, so it's given a rather obvious title, due to the fact the film jumps from one event to another. None of these events have any links, and are all highly unlikely and stupid to boot.
Morgan Freeman is the true star of this movie, although the constant cigar that he carries around does get a bit annoying. Especially since it's rarely lit.
Keanu Reeves seems to bulk up for certain films (Speed, Matrix), and then all the muscle turns to flab, cos he looks like he generally pigs out. He's unkempt, chubby, unshaven - basically everything you would find UNsexy in a man! And the 'relationship' between his character and Rachel Weisz's character is very unbelievable. There is absolutely no chemistry between the characters, and I believe that off screen, they didn't speak to each other. It's highly believable that they didn't spend any time together, so that results in no chemistry. Now if you were watch to Speed - loads of chemistry between Keanu & Sandra Bullock.
This film is not worth the time or the money - oops, says she who bought it! But then again, I'm a Keanu Reeves fan. If you can't stand the sight of Keanu Reeves, this film is for you to watch once, slag off every time his name gets mentioned, and instantly forget.

As one who is involved in the free energy field, and about ready to release a working technology to the world, I was delighted to see this movie. It portrays well that things are not as they seem, and that there are shadow conspiracies that at times run the show more than our own elected government does.
To someone who doesn't believe in free energy, this movie might seem contrived and corny. But I will tell you that from the perspective of one who is immersed in it, and knows of viable technologies that are about to be released, the movie does a fantastic job in its portrayal of the dynamics involved.
My critique of the movie would be of two things: the portrayal of the hydrogen reactor process, and of the scene where Reeves and Weisz get shot out of a mine shaft and then drop back down in on a cable. Any human being would have probably been killed, yet they didn't even have a broken bone or even a cut.
Their hydrogen reactor looked like something from a decades old Frankenstein movie. It seems they could have been more convincing.
They make hydrogen power look as though it will be enormously complex to extract. In reality, my hunch is that when we crack the secret it will not be that complex.
Otherwise, it was a fantastic movie.

I expected this movie to be awful. It wasn't. I guess it helps that I'm from Chicago and part of the movie takes place here. Even without that help, it's solid. Keanu Reeves gives his standard good-guy action performance. This movie is done be the same guys that did The Fugitive, and it shows. The movies have a lot of similarities.
Rachel Weisz does an admirable job and Morgan Freeman is, well, Morgan Freeman. Always solid. Sure, there's some cheesy dialogue. But you know you're not going in to see Shakespeare.
The sound quality of this DVD is excellent. Crank up the subwoofer for the explosions. Picture quality is also well-done.
If you don't mind somewhat cheesy action movies, try checking this one out.
