A group of telekinetics band together for survival in the action, sci-fi, thriller Push. Chris Evans plays the role of a Mover (Can move things with his mind) who is hiding successfully in Hong Kong till a 13 year old Watcher (Can see the future) played by Dakota Fanning seeks his help to find a Pusher (Controls peoples minds) played by Camilla Belle. (I’m not even going to explain what a sniffer does) The three are being chased by a shadowy organization called the Division lead by a Pusher played by Djimon Hounsou who is trying to kill them. This film is confusing and it just doesn’t make sense a lot of the time. First, a Watcher who can see thing with her mind shouldn’t needs help to find anybody. Second, it has too many characters (especially the super powered mutants) who slip in and out of the story without explanation. Third and definitely not the last, why is Dakota Fanning in a mini skirt with purple hair unless she is an underage well I’ll leave it at that. This film has a lot of potential and is a fun ride. (Of course if you don’t mind a ride with me as the driver and you not knowing if we are swerving to miss the big plot holes and about to crash.) It will have its action fans but it’s just a weak film and I’m giving it a C-rating.
This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
