You need to know the terms used in order to understand and enjoy this movie. This is Science Fiction at its best. The terms: WATCHERS can see into the future. SNIFFS like today's psychics can use an object to find someone. PUSHERS get people to believe what they want them to like hypnotists . STITCHES can heal. MOVERS can move objects with their minds.. BLEEDERS can emit hi-pitched screams that make ears bleed. <more>
WIPERS can erase memories. SHADOWS can block effectiveness of Movers clairvoyants/psychics . SHIFTERS can make objects appear to be something else.Getting to know the terms above will help immensely. Otherwise it's going to be a case of "whadisay?, whadimean?" throughout. To help some more: Nick is a MOVER. Cassie Fanning is a WATCHER. Nick and Cassie work together to find Kira. So there, you have it.So you can see what our future will be like, sort of. But, there is one thing that gives hope to everything: the future can be changed according to Cassie. That's good to know.The whole production is sound, the cinematography is amazing. The acting is good all around. The dialogue could have been clearer in spots, but not too bad get to know the terms above . Djimon Hounsou will be another Samuel L. Jackson for a minute there I thought he was Jackson .Dakota Fanning was my safety blanket. I trusted her. But, why they had her dressed like a hooker is beyond me. Hey, she's 13-yrs old in this movie. Anyway, she is terrific. Violence: Yes. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Language: Yes, some but no F-bombs
I came out of the cinema pretending I had super powers. That's how you know a film's good. (by Pettitmark)
Go watch Push now.First off, if you've read a professional review of this movie then you'll know that the major flaw critics found in this film was the plot. They though it was more a sequence of events rather than a progressive narrative. I can see their point and normally I'd be the first sharpening my claws to set into a film for lacking cohesion people go to A to get B so they can go to C - come on people that's hardly a plot!? , but in this case all is a forgiven because guess what? - in this universe there's Watchers people who can see the future, but only certain <more>
things and the style of the narrative fits perfectly. You can't go from A to C, because you didn't see it, you saw A to B to C, so that's what you have to do. Luckily however, B just happened to give you an awesome action scene/clever scene introduction scene with a new character.Did I say awesome action scene? I meant to say super, mega,kick-ass - I just saw a man deflect a load of bullets, throw someone into the wall with his mind, then get his insides melted by sonic waves - action scene. The kind that's well directed and that throws around styles no other film had done before camera flare for telekinesis - genius and when you can feel it hurt when the protagonist gets slammed into the ceiling.Music wise, the soundtrack fits the film's direction perfectly. Push has a hallucinogenic, trippy quality of lazy zooms and blurring colours, though one that can oddly also be very grainy and realistic at times oh look, that reflects the "ordinary people with powers thing!" . Hong Kong is also the kind of location films like this are made for with a clash of neon colour, constant movement and an innovation of architecture that lights up your TV screen.Finally, a brief hello to Chris Evan, the most innately likable man alive - you'd still seem charismatic smacking my granny around and even though I'm straight, I would bend for you at the drop of a hat. Hello Dakota Fanniny - no longer irritating and scarily natural at this acting lark. Hello every other member of the cast - sorry to bunch you together, but you all did fantastically.Ready for my cheesy end line review? You don't need to be a Watcher to see that you'll enjoy this movie!
OK, many people say, this movies is really bad, but I disagree! This is one of the best movies I've ever seen! There were enough action and the scenery was really good, the actors were perfect. This movies had all the elements, to make audience interested in the movie. Some, people, who say that there weren't enough action - Action isn't the most important thing in movie. Every part of movie was interesting and got me really excited. But the End was a bit weird, I hope, that there's going to be another part for this awesome movie. After the film, I kept thinking about the <more>
great scenario and another part for this movie, because it was so exciting and unpredictable.I suggest everyone to watch this masterpiece.
Needs tidying up, but it's still good. (by obsidianskye)
PUSH is one of those movies which really got me excited after the first viewing of the trailer, and now that I've finally watched it, I'm glad that I did.The storyline was rather good and believable, didn't leave me confused or bored at the end. Although more time could have been spent explaining certain things in detail instead of the constant scenes of standing around and pondering the next move.The visual effects in this film are pretty good. And the acting isn't too bad either. Applause for Dakota Fanning and Chris Evans. Also, I really enjoyed the way the movie was shot, <more>
there was somehow this sense of realism to the whole thing.However, I didn't enjoy Camilla Belle's acting. Although I did enjoy her performance in The Quiet, she just seemed really off in this movie. Either she wasn't given enough screen time, or she was outshone by Dakota.By the way, those who are comparing this show to HEROES are preposterous. Telekineseis and all of these special abilities have been around long before then! Though I am a huge fan of HEROES, I think it's really nothing in comparison to PUSH.By the way, this show had me glued to the sit even when I really had to use the toilet. In other words, I hope there's a sequel.
Adding Hong Kong grit to the superhero film genre (by steelydwill)
While there have been superhero genre films, there is something about the way that Push takes you through the back alleys, fish markets and pint-sized hotel rooms of Hong Kong that sets it apart and makes it palpably exciting. It is exotic, but this is no fantasy world, it is a dirty reality that the characters inhabit.Fitting perfectly with this is the lack of a clear hierarchy of super powers. In most superhero films, there are clear levels of powers, and you know exactly which characters should be stronger than others, but Push has a perfectly muddied picture we're on the edge of <more>
our seats, because we don't know who should win. It feels oddly realistic.Chris Evans rises to the occasion as usual as the semi-powerful protagonist, Nick, mixing in his trademark cocky funny attitude with a subtle melancholy outlook. Dakota Fanning is definitely growing up, and she is highly likable as the adolescent future teller. Camilla Belle is gorgeous, and Djimon Hounsou is as intimidating as ever as the primary villain.It's weird to see people compare this to Jumper, because while Jumper was filled with cheap tricks, Push has you talking about the movie when you leave theaters, and thinking about its concept long after. I really like the universe it created, so I really hope we'll get to see it again with a sequel!
A great piece of something different... I already bought it! (by entwinedarts)
The trailer for "Push" did not give me a desire to see it in the theater... It was actually a last minute choice to go see it in hopes to see a good action movie. I was certainly surprised -- I have heard some bad reviews of this film, but I must say the choice to go see it was WORTH my time. The story was excellent and pieced together very well. The way it was written was something I rarely see in movies anymore. Most directors rely on special effects and explosions anymore, but "Push" used it's action/CG as a companion to the plot. The plot's structure was on the <more>
line of "The Jacket" or "Burn After Reading" where details, no matter how subtle, seem to twist and mesh into a well-thought-out idea. The little visions of the future and appearance of random characters are not meant to be simply passed off. You are allowed to think in this one... What a nice change! Switches between the gritty and crisp, colorful filming worked well in bringing a certain mood to the appropriate scenes which also looks brilliant on BluRay . The actions scenes were great as well... With the company of the Pushers' powers and the manipulation of people and objects around them, those scenes did not usually go in the direction I anticipated.This is not fair to call "Push" a "super hero" movie. It is not really a super hero movie, nor is it a traditional action movie; I believe this was the intention. The bolder science fiction basis kept the plot focused and within the realm of "its own" feel and stayed away from the "everything everyone else is doing" feel. Actions scenes were powerful yet short; I was left wanting more, so when the next series of craziness began I was more involved and appreciated it more. Sure there were some editing flaws, but even major blockbusters going back to "Jurassic Park" have issues. Even still, I have found that some of these reported "flaws" in "Push" are incorrect after viewing it for a second time on BluRay. As a final note, the entire cast held their roles wonderfully and left a lasting impression of each of their characters. I guarantee that if the original cast chose to return, I would be in line for a "Push" sequel on opening night.
I was really surprised by how entertained I was by this. There were many negative reviews of this film and after watching the film I realised how many critics are actually quite lazy. They derided the plot as convoluted but actually I found it complex but understandable. To dismiss it as a heroes knock-off is also unfair. It's a sci-fi film but that doesn't mean all sci-fi films are the same. The film makes good use of its Hong Kong location more so than any recent film I've seen and the characters were memorable. The special effects were there for the story and not the other way <more>
around. I usually read film reviews but am glad, in this instance, I ignored them.
I don't see why this movie has been turned down by so many people or why such a bad word has been spread about it.Push is one of the better modern superhuman-themed movies you will find. It won't be your top five of the year and you won't watch it a million times, but you should really like it. It won't blow you away, but it won't disappoint you.I give my opinion on this movie not as a fully fledged movie expert, fully up-to- date, premier-going, Oscar-loving critic - but as an artistically natured, deep- rooted film lover. And I say this movie is worth watching. It has a <more>
bit of everything that is to be desired in a good movie. While a lot could've been different, and you could've improved it in many ways, it's still fine just as it is.The story in this movie is excellent. How it is portrayed and told is great. The actors all fulfill their role, some with splendor. And no matter what anyone might have told you; this movie is greatly artistical.I believe Push is quite unique in many ways, foremost for its unusual lack of hierarchy of the powers you see in the film. You're used to see a lot of people possessing powers, but only one of them - Magneto for instance - being the one standing above all else. But in Push no one is the obvious stronger one.Push uses a lot of twists, and not in the first-Saw-movie way which blows you out of your seat, but it still manages to keep the movie interesting, even tough the twists are all quite predictable.Push is also, as I said, greatly artistical. It has a lot of fantastic colors and utilizes lighting very well, it's set in very beautiful environments, and there are a lot of other great cinematic techniques being used. I especially like the choice of soundtrack in this movie. It reminds me a lot of the way they choose to use music in The Dark Knight. Instead of some really catchy, noticeable soundtrack there's been a very diligent work done with a subtle yet powerful soundtrack that emerges only when necessary and gives an indescribable force to the movie.All in all, Push is a quite non-mainstream, entertaining, good movie worth watching.
Best of the recent movies in this new sci-fi sub-genre (by blindcurve)
"Push" is the best movie from a recent new genre of science fiction movies. This new genre of movies, which includes "Jumper" and "Wanted", generally involves characters with psychic or psionic abilities, a conspiratorial shadow group, and an unlikely anti-hero, set against a banal or dystopian realism. "Push" blows these other two admittedly weak offerings out of the cinematic water.Both the visuals and the action in "Push" are quite good. "Push" is set in Hong-Kong. The city has enough exotic flavor to be interesting and enough <more>
grit to provide a realistic backdrop for the more fanciful elements of the film. The filmmakers captured the feeling of a William Gibson novel without having to set the film at night in the rain for the entire movie.The action sequences are excellent. "Push" does not suffer from the hyper-kinetic, shake-the-camera-until-the-viewer-is-confused action sequences of "Bourne Ultimatum" or "Quantum of Solace". In "Push", you know who is punching whom and you can tell who is winning.Visual effects? Here is what sold me on this film and on this filmmaker's vision: When a "mover" a person with telekinetic powers uses his ability to push something away or to enhance the power of a punch yes, I said TK-enhanced fight sequences...don't drool on your keyboard the visual effects people were smart enough to consider the effect on the nearby air. The air gets...crimped, and as a result the light refracts in a split second rainbow pattern at the moment of impact. That level of forethought and detail is what "Jumper" and "Wanted" lacked.Another element that this movie possesses that "Jumper" and "Wanted" doesn't is a focus on the characters. Any movie or show about psychic powers or "superpowers" lives or dies on the relationships between the characters. The male lead and Dakota Fanning are excellent together and quickly establish a rapport that gives the film more depth. Honorable mention goes to the enemy "watcher"--she is genuinely threatening, lollipop notwithstanding. I also loved the tip of the hat to the anime genre exhibited in Cassie's Fanning wardrobe.This movie is worth every bit of the matinée price I paid. And I will probably watch it again.A few points: One, this is not a superhero movie. While people who like "Heroes" and some of the Marvel films might enjoy this movie, one should not go in expecting that kind of experience.Two, I do wish that the producers had about 15 million extra dollars. The extra money would have allowed them to show more of the story and neatly tie a couple of loose ends, rather than telling the audience. I sincerely hope this film does well enough to garner a more expansively budgeted sequel.Three, this movie has some minor plot issues, especially a small deux ex machina cum Toyota, that might bother some. But, if you choose to buy into the experience, "Push" will take you on a fantastic ride.-Blindcurve
