Movie review- Chain Reaction
I watched this interesting movie last night. Well most of it actually. I came downstairs to watch it like five or ten minutes into the movie. I had originally wanted to watch Tron: Legacy (I’ve been dying to see it and it' finally came in the mail through Netflix) but my parents had to decided to watch this instead.
What I liked: I thought the plot was very interesting. At first we have no idea who did it, but as the story progresses, we find out who did it. And they were right in front of Eddie and Lily the whole time. I liked the mystery and I thought the actors were good. This was actually a good, well produced movie. I've been skeptical of some of the movies on Netflix that you can instantly watch because alot of them just are not that well produced or the actors aren't good. So I was pleased to find a good one.
What I didn't like: I thought that some things were stupid. For example, Eddie calls Dr. Shannon when clearly he should have realized that they would be tracking the calls that Dr. Shannon made. I was confused at different parts of the movie- especially in the end- whether or not Dr. Shannon was bad or good. He seemed to be on the good side especially in the very end, but really, I wasn't sure if he had let Eddie and Lily escape for his own interests. I thought it was somewhat far fetched how far Eddie and Lily had traveled during the movie in just stolen cars. But then, I guess if you're really trying to escape you'd travel fast. I thought that it was surprising how Eddie didn't get all that badly hurt when the hydrogen thing exploded and how to appeared to be a nuclear bomb. It did wipe out eight city blocks in the movie. Also, when the cop got shot, I was surprised there was no blood, actually there was no blood when anyone got shot.
Overall: It was a good movie and I enjoyed it. It kept you watching with the mystery and the action. Lots of action in it. I'd give it a three out of five stars.
So, this movie was about people wrongly accused of something they didn't do. Have you ever been accused of something you didn't do, what was it, and did you prove your innocence?
