In terms of Netflix subscribers flocking to a star’s back catalog any time a new movie is made available, Jason Statham is quickly earning a reputation as the streaming service’s chrome-domed, ass-kicking version of Adam Sandler, such is the popularity of his mid-budget actioners on the world’s most popular streaming service.
In the last few months alone we’ve seen titles including Homefront, Safe, War, Mechanic: Resurrection, Hobbs & Shaw, Crank, and the former competitive diver has landed yet another unexpected smash hit on the platform, with the largely forgotten Chaos having cracked the Top 10 most-watched list in the United States, as per .
Despite boasting Statham and Wesley Snipes, the movie has an interesting history. It received a theatrical release only in the United Arab Emirates, and it wouldn’t reach Stateside shores until three years later, but only then was it quietly dumped onto VOD. A lot of that has to do with the production company behind Chaos getting into some serious financial difficulties, leading to its eventual bankruptcy.
It isn’t very good either, offering a standard tale of a veteran cop finding himself partnered up with a rookie, only for them to become caught up in a race against time to stop a rapidly evolving computer virus from crippling the global financial system. Absolute nonsense, then, but people do love them some Jason Statham on Netflix.
