Itís nice seeing Snipes in a villainous role again, but he doesnít reach DEMOLITION MAN levels of lunatic fun. Likewise, as awesome as he was in WAY OF THE GUN, Ryan Phillippe reverts backwards on the Tough Guy scale in CHAOS. Watching him threateningly interrogate suspects and chasing down perps on motorcycle just didnít do it for me.
So that leaves you with pretty much the only thing really worth watching in CHAOS, and that is Jason (STATHAM!ô) Statham. The former Turkish plays his usual Stathamastic persona, with some fun lines, cool-macho charisma and even a couple dick metaphors. Still, seeing the man in a straight-to-video mess like CHAOS is a waste of time. And Jason Statham should not be wasting his time.
Extra Tidbit: Statham was previously a professional diver and placed 12th in the 1992 World Championship. And since he can kick my ass, Iíll avoid making a Speedo joke.
