After a man's sister is killed by two gunmen who seemingly come out of nowhere, he manages to find and kill them. He then discovers that the men he killed were part of a multi-millionaire's bizarre "death game", where someone is hunted through the streets of Los Angeles by teams of killers who get a big-money prize for killing their quarry--and he realizes that now he is "it". Written by
'Chase' (the title of this movie when I saw it) had two meanings. Steven Chase, a construction worker, was the main character. And 'chase' was what was happening at the start of the movie--two cars tearing through the streets of Los Angeles, jumping over obstacles like the General Lee on 'The Dukes of Hazzard'.
When the chase ended, Steven was handed a gun and told he was 'it'. He was part of a deadly game run by a millionaire in an office. We were not told the exact nature of this game until about halfway through the movie, and even then we were told only a little at a time. This was an interesting way to present the situation. Violence, of course, was the primary way to deal with problems, and few characters survived.
And almost no one in this movie could act. William Zipp as Steven, and Paul W. Smith as Steele, the game's supervisor in the field, were the exceptions, and even they may have just seemed good by contrast.
Bainbridge Scott, as Diana, who helped Steven the most, at least had the ability to look tough, but she could not deliver dialogue. If there were auditions for this movie, I'd hate to see the people who lost.
I would like to have seen this movie done with good performances. There was potential.
