Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
A strange choice for Dennis Hopper -- and an unfortunate choice for whatever director had gotten stuck with it -- Chasers is a failed little military comedy that everyone involved with would likely prefer to forget. It starts with the dubious conceit that former Baywatch babe and Playboy playmate Erika Eleniak is a derelict soldier awaiting trial for her transgressions. Even if her ample proportions could withstand the rigors of military life, would a person capable of making a living on her looks even choose such a life? For a few minutes after the audience agrees to meet the film on its terms, Chasers gets a few laughs as soldiers Tom Berenger and William McNamara escort Eleniak through a couple goofball set pieces, and Eleniak proves to be a comedian of passable ability. But then Hopper cheapens her newfound standing with the audience by delivering the inevitable softcore sex scene, during which his camera hungrily explores her naked body. The mild erotica is an abrupt and off-putting tonal change from the light, slapstick mood that had been on the verge of winning over the audience. Hopper's own cameo, as a perverted man who gives the escapee a ride, puts the capper on a series of bad mid-film decisions that turn it into a disaster by the end credits.
