Critics Consensus

Nerve's fast pace and charming leads help overcome a number of fundamental flaws, adding up to a teen-friendly thriller with enough energy to occasionally offset its muddled execution.

Audience Reviews for Nerve

  • Nov 28, 2017
    Mediocre. Gaps in logic are plentiful, but the action is fun enough to make a worthy distraction.

    Fun Black-Mirrorish concept, well executed until an extremely dumb and unlikely ending.
    Ed K Super Reviewer

    Eschewing the typical teen movie tropes for a much smarter and surreal concept, Nerve is strikingly fun and fast-paced and presents an idea that seems alarmingly close to home. Besides some middle of the road performances, Nerve is highly stylized and sometimes even thrilling putting emphasis on visual electricity and the strength of the clever scenario. It's no classic and it moralizes a bit too bluntly at the climax, but for the audience this movie is aiming its eye at, they will eat this up. Rating: 68

    What starts out as a pretty accurate portrayal of teenager's online habits these days (and a very well presented one at that) soon takes it a step further, like in a somewhat friendly Black Mirror episode. Things are pretty interesting, sometimes even exciting, but the film sometimes shies away from being too toxic or mean. The message it is sending is still worth noting, even though the solution is maybe a tad too naive. Emma Roberts carries the film with her very natural and likable portrayal of a regular teenager. A worthy effort, well done.
