Address Comments To:
CHASERS fails miserably at every turn and is neither dramatic, funny nor even the least bit interesting. The acting performances are weak and unrealistic. Erika Eleniak, in the prisoner role, is understandably attempting to expand her career after leaving BAYWATCH, but manages only to further her body-only image. But then, credible acting is not often expected from former Playboy Playmates. Tom Berenger's portrayal of Rock Reilly is a forced effort, and William McNamara, as Eddie, is the type actor one would expect to appear in a remake of ANIMAL HOUSE or possibly BIKINI CARWASH V. Gary Busey and Dennis Hopper provide short relief in brief cameos, but their efforts add little to an otherwise meager film. Technical aspects of CHASERS are fine, but who cares when the story, the acting and the content are so sorely lacking.
