A 13-year-old clairvoyant (Dakota Fanning) and the son (Chris Evans) of a murdered assassin join forces against a covert government agency that dabbles in psychic drugs and warfare.
" A trippy, nonstop action fest, with the feel of a really good episode of Heroes. "
" It's the perfect brain vacation for those overtaxed by Oscar-nominated movies. "
" A grubby cut-price sci-fi thriller. "
" A silly movie that is partially engrossing and plenty convoluted. "
" As far as I can tell, the only ability in short supply is acting. "
" Belle... is blank as a page, and the intended romantic chemistry between her and Evans is never in evidence. "
" By the time the credits roll, your most fervent wish is to run into a 'wiper' (one who can erase memories). "
" It should give us the willies, but it's willy-nilly. "
" Just as it's getting impossible to tell the superpowered humans without a scorecard, along comes Push to muddy the waters. "
" Movies don't get more headache-inducing than Push. "
" One long mistake from start to finish, this is a film that never gets its rhythms or bearing right. "
" Paul McGuigan's jittery editing and shaky cameras make the action confusing rather than thrilling, and nothing can save this movie from the screenplay's nearly incomprehensible twists. "
" Push has vibrant cinematography and decent acting, but I'm blasted if I know what it's about. "
" Silliness rules the day: plot holes abound and are plugged with techno-pounding action sequences and more nonsensical guff. As a TV pilot, this might have worked; as a film, it's loud, confusing and inane. "
" Suggestive of X-Men, The Matrix and the television show Heroes, Push is one of those time-mangling thrillers that manages to seem both complicated and superficial. "
" There are many problems with Push, and most are the usual boring things: unnecessary plot loops; long, dumb musical interludes; a charmless script; and ostentatious action sequences in which the only person excited is the cameraman. "
