Movie Reviews

Old-Fashioned, but Worth a Second Look!
Benjamin J Burgraff | Las Vegas | 10/09/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I'll admit, when I first saw this film, in 1994, I thought it was sophomoric, with overripe performances, a brain-dead plot, and an extremely gratuitous sex scene tossed in to show off Erika Eleniak's considerable assets. However, seeing it again, recently, I came to realize this was actually a send-up of the 'good ol' boy' comedies of the seventies, the kind of 'B' movies Roger Corman produced, when he introduced directors like Ron Howard. As such, it's very enjoyable, and certainly worth another look! The premise is that of an old-fashioned service comedy, with wheeler-dealer William McNamara and put-upon pal Crispen Glover pulling off one last big score before McNamara's discharge. Unfortunately, the scam goes awry as the young con artist is 'recruited' to assist grizzled vet 'Rock Reilly' (Tom Berenger, spitting out dialogue with a whiskey-soaked growl) in a prisoner transfer. The prisoner turns out to be the luscious Erika Eleniak, and as she quickly makes the first of several escape attempts, you get to see: a) exciting new uses for feminine hygiene products; b) the redneck charm of the countryside between Charleston and North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; c) some great cameos by Dean Stockwell, Seymour Cassel, Gary Busey, Marilu Henner, Fredric Forrest, and director Dennis Hopper, himself (sporting a bulbous nose and a blow-up sex toy!); d) the famous Eleniak nude love scene, followed by McNamara chasing her, naked, after she runs, again (he shows more skin than she does); and e) the obligatory happy ending, as Berenger proves he has a 'heart of gold', and that 'love (or a healthy lust, anyway!) conquers all'. Is this a classic? Are you kidding? Then again, neither were the Corman films...but as a tribute to the genre, 'Chasers' is fun, and a terrific 'kick off the shoes, pop some popcorn' flick!"
It's all about Erika

"Why watch this movie? It's not that good. The plot is pretty tame. The acting is nothing to speak of. Again, why? Well, if you are a fan a of nude Erika Eleniak then you watch this movie. Really that's the good part of this flick."
Great Berenger flick with the ghost of Ricky Nelson.

"If you were ever in the Navy you'll love the scene where Berenger and McNamara visit the brig to pick up their prisoner. This scene with Gary Busey is worth the price of admission. McNamara embodies the soul of Ricky Nelson but he's a much better actor than Ricky was. Erika isn't bad either. The plot moves along and is funny and bittersweet enough to earn the label "entertainment.""
More of Erika Eleniak, please...

"Chasers brings to the screen the story of a sailor, who one day before getting his discharge papers is ordered to escort a prisoner from a U.S. Marines base to a military prison.
Tom Berenger and William McNamara are pretty weak and unconvincing in their respecting roles. The latter, especially, has to deal with playing a not very likable character as well.
In short, the music is great, the plot/setting is interesting, while the dialogues and the acting are average and sometimes below average, and then there is Erika Eleniak. WOW!!! As others have also pointed out, this film is indeed all about Erika Eleniak.
In a nutshell, it's probably not a movie you would want to add to your collection, but it will provide for an evening's entertainment. 3.5 Stars
