...the movie often feels like an attempt by filmmaker Andrew Davis to replicate the massive (and entirely justified) success of 1993's The Fugitive.

A pretty typical take on the "wrongly-accused" genre.

As dull and run-of-the-mill as they come.

Watchable but forgettable Fugitive-clone. Keanu as rocket scientist - more power to him.

A generic and illogical transparent thriller that never generates any chemistry between this mundane movies leads Reeves and Freeman. The only chain reaction one will receive is blatant boredom

Just one of the many Keanu speed bumps found in your local video store.

The narrative is very complex, but what's on the screen is little more than generic, non-narrative-specific, guy-being-chased stuff.

The movie is so uninvolving that it inspires renewed respect for Broken Arrow, which was equally stupid but excitingly filmed.

Chain Reaction is even dumber than Fled -- as hard as that may be to believe.

[Chain Reaction] has better acting, better writing, more spectacular chase sequences and more genuine drama than all of this summer's blockbusters.

Chain Reaction isn't dull -- the film is paced to keep audiences attentive -- but the lack of originality dampens its enjoyability.

It's not a bad film in individual moments and in the energy of itsperformances, but it doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

There are a couple of good explosions in the film, particularly the opening one. In addition, the movie has an intriguing premise. If only they went somewhere original with it...

Ultimately, any movie in which even Morgan Freeman manages to give a lackluster performance can only be considered a seriously botched job.

Exhilarating but skin-deep summer fun. (You were expecting Shakespeare?)
