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

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

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.

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

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