A great idea which could and almost did turn into an excellent movie, but was ruined by a bloated middle and some unnecessary scenes. The older film Scanners, is much better and explores a similar theme. Many scenes in this movie are good, approaching great, but the pace is far too slow and it repeatedly gets bogged down with needless extra content.

Enjoyed this movie more the second time watching then the first. I seemed to catch more of what was going on after the first viewing. The setting was good, maybe a different location would have made it better...the action was great. I am becoming a fan of Dakota Fanning the more movie i see her in,. I believe she can be a wonderful actress and will be more so as her career continues. I was expecting a little more out of this movie, maybe more of a twist. Not sure but it was missing something that could have made it great. Good movie to see at least once.

There was something about this movie that I just didn't like going into it. I couldn't put my finger on it until the very end, which popped up out of absolutely nowhere. I'm not by any means a critic, in fact I hate critics, I really do. So, for me to give a movie a single star it has to really be bad. And this movie, at least to me, was bad. It wasn't horrible, but it was pretty bad. I never thought such a great cast would be in such a bad action movie. I do like the cast, Dakota Fanning was brilliant and Chris Evans was great as always. My real issue is with a plot, which is handled loosely to say the least. I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone.

Save Yourself Two Hours: Don't Watch This Film

What a mess! Push is easily one of the worst action films I've ever seen! Between flat and unlikable characters to dull action, Push gets just about everything wrong. It's campy, it's silly, and painfully un-watchable.

Push is much more confusing than it needs to be. In the end, it's just about a group of people trying to get a case before the "bad guys" get it. Put less simply, it's about people with a range of psychic abilities who are in a race against The Division (a powerful government that "rules" these superior beings) to find a case that contains a "billion dollar secret." The plot makes much less sense on film.

In specific, the plot follows a man named Nick (Chris Evans), who is just out of his teen years, and still doesn't really have a good grip on his ability (levitati...

"Push" by Yojimbo

Push is set in a world inhabited by people who were the subjects of government experiments that gave them special powers including telekinesis, mind control and the ability to see the future. "Mover" Chris Evans is approached by a young girl who predicts the future through a series of abstract drawings and they set about bringing down the shadowy agency that experiments upon them...is any of this sounding familiar? Yes, this is a blatant rip off of popular TV series Heroes, with shades of one of my favourite X-Files (which was "coincidentally" entitled Pusher...) There are some well executed, inventive Matrix-style action sequences, the stand outs being a gun battle between two floating pistols and a "pusher" who surrounds herself with a cadre of unwilling, puppet-like bodyguards. My main...

Hope you brought your pencils

A 2 hour set up that goes no where. The movie I'm guessing was planning on being successful enough to warrant a sequel or franchise so instead of making a really great movie people would want to see another one of they loaded up more crap then they could fit in 2 hours about explaining their little world to us and all the intricate little rules they need to play by, being sure to open up plenty of possible side plots and leave enough questions unanswered at the end of their two hour how to manual to get a green light. The premise would be good if handeled much much better, there was no need to make this so complicated, Heres the movie in two seconds Hi I can push things with my mind. Hi I can read the future. Hi theres this guy that can follow us. Hi theres these other group of people who...
