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

The further the film goes, the stupider it gets.
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.

The two directors entitled their film Nerve. It's a pity they didn't hold theirs.
September 9, 2016
The denouement is ridiculous, the conclusion sketchy and the script's attempts to be hip are, in the end, slightly pathetic.
September 2, 2016
Seriously, with each "big" reveal jackhammered one after the other into the last scenes, Nerve just gets smaller and smaller in your estimation.
August 14, 2016
You go along with the charismatic cast and atmospheric shots until, ultimately, it gets on your nerves.
August 13, 2016
...it's ultimately difficult to envision this thin story working as a short let alone a 96 minute feature.
August 10, 2016
"Nerve" lacks a courageous plot.
August 10, 2016
It's puzzling that this work has the tone of a tut-tutting, government ministry -- or church group-funded public service announcement, when it is meant to be primarily a piece of entertainment.
August 10, 2016
Nerve's biggest problem is that, much like a confused kid in high school, it just isn't sure what it wants to be.
August 9, 2016
While the first half of the movie is a giddy good time, at a certain point the inherent implausibility fueling things begins to take its toll.
August 1, 2016
It briefly has enough energy to be diverting, even if it soon moves from cute to ugly to ridiculous.
July 29, 2016
It gets off on the highwire fun of living on a digital dare and then pisses away its provocations by lecturing us with a metaphorical take on social media as an STD. What a buzz kill.
July 29, 2016
There is only one thing to say to the presumption we should care: Some nerve.
July 29, 2016
Phenomenally stupid.
July 29, 2016
The final act turns Nerve from crime thriller/teenage drama into a banal morality play.
July 29, 2016
A teenage game of basically truth or dare is the focus. Supposed to be tense and isn't. Texting teens walking across an actual real street is much more nerve-wracking.
July 29, 2016
As Nerve loses more touch with reality, we lose interest.
July 28, 2016
Nerve is all about our dependence on technology, but it will also make directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman's movie into a heavily dated time capsule for 2016.
