An aimless young man who is scalping tickets, gambling and drinking, agrees to coach a Little League team from the Cabrini Green housing project in Chicago as a condition of getting a loan from a friend.
Eddie Kasalivich, an undergraduate at the University of Chicago, works as a technician for a scientific team that discovers an alternative, low-cost, pollution-free fuel source. When one of the chief scientists is murdered and the invention stolen, Eddie and physicist Lily Sinclair are framed for it and have to flee for their lives, with the FBI, CIA and other involved parties in close pursuit. Paul Shannon, Eddies mentor, is the director of a scientific company which - unknown to Eddie - has commercial interests in the invention. Eddie and Lily set out to find the stolen invention and hopefully clear themselves of the false charges. Written by

Nick Offerman was cast to play Kenny's building super, but found out both his scenes were cut out at the film's premier. It would have been one of his first films. See more »
There seems to have been some confusion when writing the parts concerning the ostensible clean energy source - specifically, the writers are confusing the burning of hydrogen with hydrogen fusion. The two concepts meet almost head-on during Dr. Barkley's presentation in the beginning of the film; first, he holds up a glass of water and claims there's enough energy in it to power a whole city (which sort-of lines up with the energy density of hydrogen fusion), then almost immediately after goes on to speak about combustion of hydrogen.
It should be noted that while hydrogen fusion would indeed provide enormous amounts of energy, burning hydrogen derived from water produces less energy than it takes to split the water into oxygen and hydrogen. See more »
As the end credits come to the end, the music fades out and a rumble gets louder and louder. This is the start of a shockwave resulting from the massive explosion at the end of the film. The viewpoint is of Keanu Reeves who by now is in a helicopter and comes straight on screen after the last of the credits has gone up. The ground implodes briefly and you hear Agent Ford say "Whoa!".

Steeped in the Directorial sensibilities of the 90's Chain Reaction is a well made movie with an intriguing plot and appealing storyline.
The movie basically epitomises the life and breadth of all the action thrillers produced in the 90's. I loved them all.
Unlike their 21st century counterparts , they don't excel in realism or cold and brutal portrayal of duels . But their is something which qualifies them as entertainers .Chain Reaction is that 90's movie.
Keannu Reeves and Morgan Freeman play their parts in this nicely directed film. Tenacious henchmen with the bad guy look written all over their faces, the cool and foxy villain with a suave demeanour, the unassuming,raw , innocent yet determined good guys , an impending disaster involving a " Chain Reaction" and more than a 100 hours of proper 90's entertainment.
