|Waste of Time - 2/5|
As the storyline progressed director Tony Giglio tried to incorporate new elements to the film but most of these were ineffective. The twist at the end was unexpected but I didn't really care by that point. When it came to acting the film managed to go downhill even more. I used to look forward to anything with Jason Statham in but now I've seen so much of his work that I've realised he always plays the same character. That husky London accent has become grating and nothing he does seems fresh anymore. As for Ryan Phillippe, I see him popping up all the time taking on a role that his baby face just isn't suited to. By the end we are supposed to be in awe of what he has achieved despite seemingly being a total rookie, but I wasn't. He isn't right for these roles.
What really ground my gears about the film was its title. All the way through they tried to link everything to the Chaos Theory, thereby reinforcing the choice of title. How was this related at all to the Chaos Theory?!? It seems like they finished the film and had no title to it so just linked in something that most people don't understand and named the film after it. There was absolutely no link. I felt the film was a waste of my time and I certainly would not recommend it.
