Critic Reviews for Pusher
Just stick to the original: Fate is always more fetching than formula.
The characters that populate Pusher are surprisingly naïve and hardly the brightest of bulbs. So much for the image of the wily, street-smart criminal.
The chief problem here is that Frank is neither likable nor very bright. For the most part, you're thinking, go ahead, bust his kneecaps.
Prieto does what he can to keep things roaring along, but the overall effect is not a lot more stimulating than your average diet cola.
We're ... left to cheer someone simply because there's really no one else to root for.
Audience Reviews for Pusher
Redundant remake that improves on nothing and botches what was good about the original. The only things this version has going for it are the synth-heavy soundtrack and Richard Coyle's charismatic performance.
follows the original well. Milo is back as himself and is great but besides having a stellar soundtrack provided by Orbital there is nothing about this remake that revives the trilogy.
An intense and exhilarating knockout. It's a kinetic, gripping, hard-boiled and electrifying movie. An edgy, very stylish, fast-paced and well-crafted neo-noir that's a terrific interpretation of the original classic. Executive Producer, Nicolas Winding Refn gives full blessing and gladly takes part in this urbanized British version that's packed with style, cool, tension and is one hell of an adrenaline-fueled chase. An explosively entertaining and highly addictive thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Director, Luis Prieto crafts a sharp, tightly-coiled and exciting crime film that stays true to the material of the original and adding its own spin that works well for it. Richard Coyle is sensational. Zlatko Buric is brilliant, giving a fearless and intense performance as his signature character, Milo. Buric takes on the part from the original Danish trilogy that he helped make famous and delivers in his performance perfectly.
