What is Bastille like in Paris?

We will be staying in France about an hour away from Paris and was wondering whether to try to go into Paris on this day for the celebrations. Is it worth it or too chaotic?

Personally if I were one hour away from Paris on Bastille Day I wouldn't go to Paris. Not only for logistical reasons (getting back to your destination after the fireworks might be difficult) but also because the atmosphere is generally so much more genuine and pleasant in provincial towns on Bastille Day. Depends where you are though.
