Audience Reviews for Push

  • Apr 03, 2015
    A cliche "people with superpower" sci-fi action film. Push follows the silly plot of government wanting to turn these people into super soldiers, the protagonists must race to fight against the government officials. The worst part of the film was probably the soundtrack, it was honestly one of the worst I've ever heard. The cast was pathetic to say the least, I have no idea why Evans would have agreed to be a part of this film. Fanning's acting was sloppy and Belle was entirely unconvincing. You really feel no sympathy for any of the characters after listening to their sob stories. There are no redeeming factors in this film, it's best to avoid.

    An entertaining thrill ride, Push is exciting and action packed. After receiving a vision, Cassie, a psychic who can see the future, seeks help from a telekinetic named Nick in order to find a mysterious case that she'll be able to use to save her mother. While it's a little derivative, the film does present a unique and intriguing vision of a world with people that have supernatural abilities. And, the abilities are depicted with some interesting visual effects. Starring Chris Evans, Dakota Fanning, Camilla Belle, and Djimon Hounsou, the film is well cast and the performances are pretty good. There are some issues with the tone and the character development, but overall Push is a solid science fiction thriller.

    People with special abilities and their world are reasonably well described in this American science fiction thriller directed by Paul McGuigan. The story is focused on a group of people born with various superhuman abilities who have to organise themselves together in order to take down a government agency that is using a dangerous drug to enhance their powers in hopes of creating an army of super soldiers. Not bad acting from the stars Chris Evans, Dakota Fanning, Camilla Belle, Cliff Curtis, Joel Gretsch and Djimon Hounsou. The screenplay was developed in depth (as much as possible) and I even managed to learn some interesting facts about Watchers , Movers, Pushers, Bleeders, Sniffs, Shifters, Wipers, Shadows and Stitches without being overwhelmed with information... but... the screenplay was sometimes too narrative jumble of clichés ! Another interesting thing is that this movie was shot entirely on location, which brings us a fresh look and feel, be it in a chase through a local fish market or the juxtaposition of modern skyscrapers and bamboo scaffolding of Hong Kong! I liked it!
