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 8, 2016
As entertainment goes, Nerve is fun due to the chemistry of its leads, but it's what it has to say that is where it makes its mark.

A solid film with very convincing performances plus a well designed photography and sound. [Full review in Spanish]
September 6, 2016
A recommendable film despite its slightly weak performances. [Full review in Spanish]

Seriously, with each "big" reveal jackhammered one after the other into the last scenes, Nerve just gets smaller and smaller in your estimation.
September 1, 2016
The film has some ridiculous scenes but manages to keep suspense and thrill. [Full review in Spanish]
September 1, 2016
A very entertaining and original film with a great script and pretty decent performances. [Full review in Spanish]

The film moves briskly enough that we rarely have a second to unpack the less-than-airtight logic of the game itself.

The secret weapon of the film is cinematographer Michael Simmonds, who has a whole bag of tricks up his sleeve.
August 30, 2016
...a slight but clever little tech thriller...

Anyone coming to this thing in October may be floored by its quaintness. By November, Nerve might feel like War Games; by December, Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat.

Joost and Schulman manage to weld this hi-tech story into one about the fragility of pubescent friendships and that very Hollywood theme of being true to yourself.
August 26, 2016
This lightweight thriller for the new millennium is flashy, with decent, likable characters and adrenaline-fueled thrills, even if it grows ever more implausible and ultimately disposable.
August 25, 2016
Nerve, for all its faults, is a timely reminder of the perils of social conformity in an increasingly online world.
August 25, 2016
Taking its name from a fictional smartphone game in which contestants roam New York completing challenges and are whittled down until only one remains, Nerve is basically Pokmon Go meets Highlander.
August 19, 2016
Catfish directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman prove they still have their fingers on the digital pulse.
August 16, 2016
It's easy to be cynical about Schulman and Joost as gimmicky exploiters of the zeitgeist, but in Sharzer's script, they've channeled the illicit excitement of Truth or Dare into a digital form and turned up the gas.
August 15, 2016
It's fun, fast and a great movie for teens.
August 14, 2016
While the game itself never feels credible and the climax is weak, the whole thing moves fast enough that many viewers will be swept along.
