"push" film review


My sister thought this movie was a spin-off of Jumper or some kind of remake or movie version of Heroes or another kind of X-Men. And who could blame her? I only heard about this movie a month before it was released. Even then I wasn’t so sure about it.

While it may not have cracked the top 5 in the box office, it was still a decent movie to see. The special effects were definitely fun and it kept you entertained… mostly. I counted a few dry spots that could’ve been cut or shortened or something. Most of the time it was giving the audience information… but it felt like the scenes went on too long and we needed to see more action and special effects!

It’s a eye-candy movie like Wanted or The Matrix. It’s not ground-breaking special effects, it’s just fun to watch when it happens. The fight scenes in particular.

The title comes from what a certain kind of psychic can do, called pushers, who push thoughts and ideas into someone’s mind. There are movers, who obviously move things with their mind. Watchers who can see the future. Sniffers who sniff things to see the past (of that object and those who have touched it). Shifter who change things into whatever they want. And bleeders who scream so loud, they make anything in ear shot bleed to death probably because their brains explode. It’s kinda violent. There are a few others too but it’s worth watching to check out this world they live in.

Overall, besides the dry parts, I’d watch it again when it hits DVDs. I wouldn’t rush to the theater, though. And Dakota Fanning needs more clothes. I understand she was probably going for a certain look in this film… but I didn’t like it. That’s just me. Anyway, not a bad film. It does make you wonder which power you’d like to have.

I gave it *** and a half *.
