Chips Story : Based on the popular seventies TV show by the same name, it's an action comedy about a goofy X-games biker and a macho undercover FBI agent joining the California highway patrol to bust a ring of armed robbers on bikes.

Chips Review : Just like 'Charlie's Angels' and the more recent, '21 Jump Street', 'CHIPs' is a film made in the same vein of films based on older, popular television shows.

A buddy-comedy, it has Dax Sheppard playing officer John Baker, an ex-motocross champ who has fallen on hard times and is now a pill-popping, oldest rookie detective in the department. He is assigned to officer Frank 'Ponch' Poncherello (Michael Peña), a trigger-happy under cover FBI agent, who is tracking a bunch of crooked cops involved in high-speed heists.

There may not be too many Indian fans of the earlier show. But for the ones catching it first time, there's not too much to get involved with. The action is decent, but nothing too hardcore. The violence is quite is real and there are some gory, yet darkly funny scenes. Like, when ponch has three of his fingers blown off, and Jonathan manages to retrieve only two as a maniac Ray Kurtz (Vincent D'Onofrio) sprays the ground around him with bullets.

As far as the chemistry between the duo is concerned, there's not too much there. Between their bickering and chasing bad guys there's no real investigation going on and the case kind of opens itself up to them. While the story is weak, the humour occasionally salvages it, yet the misplaced homosexual jokes and the misogny make you cringe in places.

A formulaic film, there are no real surprises here and it fails to cash in its chips as far as holding your interest is concerned.
