Critic Reviews for Push

All Critics (130) | Top Critics (27)

jThe script has no deep meaning and the film does just what it was intended to do: take an audience on a fantastical journey with loads of action.

Push is an empty calorie extravaganza and demands a crooked concentration it doesn't earn to sufficiently piece this mess together.

Set and filmed on location in bustling Hong Kong, the tight urban street and winding alleyways suit the film perfectly, but this is not enough to save Push from the Oscar season garbage dump.

Fan The Fire

Light fixtures are the true stars in "Push," constantly reflecting, twinkling and popping. Its best moments are when guns levitate and fire themselves. When you don't even need actors to hold pistols, it's the ultimate in autopilot filmmaking.

Push is a chase film dolled up with supernatural powers and chintzy retro design motifs.

McGuigan's saving grace is a willingness to slow down and savour his own images. At best, a moody inconsequence takes over and confusion feels like part of the plan.

Audience Reviews for Push

You know I really didnt hate this movie or really like it. I think my daughter liked it more when she came in and out of the room watching bits and pieces. Overall I was not disappointed since i did not go in with much.
