Boasts charming leads and unexpectedly have more thought to say.

Nerve loses its way towards the end, but it's slickly done, inventive, and will press all the right keys for its teen and twentysomething target audience.

Even though it isn't the most well-written movie of the year or anything, the movie's primary demographic of teenagers might actually take away something useful regarding how their Internet behavior affects people in the real world

Had Nerve stuck to the intrigue around online games, it could have been an efficiently entertaining piece of cinema.

Emma Roberts (usually seen as the mean girl) makes for a relatable, reclusive teen. Dave Franco is all smiles and charm; you want to go on this dangerous ride with him.

Nerveplays more as a survival-of-the-fittest lesson - a Darwinism-fueled cautionary tale for the GoPro generation.

Nerve is really good.... The dnouement is a bit too clever for its own good but its point about the dangers of online anonymity is bang-on.

The plausibility of its scenario gives "Nerve" an unexpected edge.
January 4, 2017
It's a scary world and it feels way too close for comfort.

There's enough humor to elevate the script above total idiocy. And as with Schulman and Joost's fake documentary, you'll always be wondering what's going to happen next, even if you're a little embarrassed for doing so.

It's preposterous but propulsive and never less than compelling in its perception of current digital culture and the craving for instant fame wrought by reality TV.

The further the film goes, the stupider it gets.
December 15, 2016
Nerve is a movie that's right on time.
December 6, 2016
While it's regrettable that Nerve's last act doesn't live up to the lead-in, it still delivers an entertaining and provocative hour and thirty-six minutes.
November 29, 2016
That Roberts and Franco make an engaging and enthusiastic pair helps; that Joost and Schulman are just as vibrant and energetic in their pacing and style does as well.
November 24, 2016
For a film designed for an audience that will unlikely be able to purchase its tickets with their own money, Nerve is a surprisingly solid, if derivative teen thriller.
November 14, 2016
What the film has going for it primarily is a sense of immediacy.
October 1, 2016
As the film enters its third and final act, you realise that it's not possible for it to be wrapped up in a logical fashion.
September 13, 2016
The energetic cast and crew keep the story moving at a brisk pace, generating moments of comedy, emotion, romance and some genuinely breathless suspense along the way.
September 10, 2016
It's tremendous fun, extremely zippy, and much more in tune with teen-speak and modern technology than many of its peers.
