No monster can beat the people
2 January 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

'Chaos' is a simple but motivating film which not only gives us a glimpse of life in the busy city of Cairo in Egypt but also unwraps the supposed corruption that has infected law and order. The movie shows that the law enforcers can't abuse and twist the law for their own selfish purposes forever and that the strength of the people shall always bring down those who oppress the people.

The movie has displayed some amazing talent in Khaled Saleh "Hatem". The story shows how monsters like him get created. Although, there is considerable room for improvement both in the story and the acting, overall the performances are good and honest.

Do watch this good-defeats-evil movie not just for the story but for the overall great performances and its setting in the sultry city along the Nile.
