Big, dumb and thoroughly enjoyable
3 June 2000 | by (In shame (2005 update)) – See all my reviews

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Hollywood made a film adaption of the bestselling Nintendo 64 games 'San Francisco Rush'? Probably not, but here it is. Much like Sheen's other 1994 movie, 'Terminal Velocity', 'The Chase' is a entertaining action film looking for a brain, which it can't seem to find. It's good, lighthearted fluff with likeable leads, some good scenes, and an excellent film-long chase (thus the title).

It's careful not to get too complex, and will likely appeal to those of us who enjoyed 'Speed'. On problem I had was the premature ending. It happened way too early and left several crucial plot points unfinished. Also the script comes and goes, one scene it's there, the next it's gone. That gets tremendously annoying, and the lack of good dialog at times hampers the impact.

Still, 'The Chase' is an entertaining piece of cinema if you have an afternoon to pass with nothing to do, even if it is rather predictable.

7/10
