Ambitious, but alarmingly confusing thriller set in Hong Kong.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
August 14, 2010
jThe script has no deep meaning and the film does just what it was intended to do: take an audience on a fantastical journey with loads of action.

Push is an empty calorie extravaganza and demands a crooked concentration it doesn't earn to sufficiently piece this mess together.
Full Review | Original Score: D-
April 15, 2010
Set and filmed on location in bustling Hong Kong, the tight urban street and winding alleyways suit the film perfectly, but this is not enough to save Push from the Oscar season garbage dump.

Light fixtures are the true stars in "Push," constantly reflecting, twinkling and popping. Its best moments are when guns levitate and fire themselves. When you don't even need actors to hold pistols, it's the ultimate in autopilot filmmaking.

Push is a chase film dolled up with supernatural powers and chintzy retro design motifs.

McGuigan's saving grace is a willingness to slow down and savour his own images. At best, a moody inconsequence takes over and confusion feels like part of the plan.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 9, 2009
The premise is promising all right, but it's a movie over-stuffed with talk and actors with a glazed look as though they too aren't sure of what they're doing.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
September 9, 2009
There isn't a single word in the English language that could justly convey the sheer stupidity, and impenetrable complexity, of Push.

The most amazing thing about this by this idiotic sci-fi thriller is that the actors do not crack up when delivering their lines.

Pushing ideas into other people's minds is what this sci-fi fantasy thriller is all about, and Paul McGuigan's film looks great. The cast is good too. But there's a problem. The story doesn't make sense
September 2, 2009
I was at first intrigued, and then bemused and confused.

This entry in the superhero sweepstakes isn't without charm
June 28, 2009
A pleasant time-waster with non-abysmal performances and a few interesting concepts.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 10, 2009
The film is likable, but not lovable. All of the pushing can't compete with other sci-fi thrillers. Still, it's worth the ride if you keep an open mind for the unrealistic.

A movie I enjoyed watching with a huge smile on my face and will assuredly endure scorn for liking...
April 7, 2009
Dashes from genre to genre in search of a reason to exist.

April 2, 2009
A sci-fi thriller with a lot of science fiction and zero thrills.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 19, 2009
...suffers from an uneven sensibility that essentially holds the viewer at arm's length virtually from start to finish.

March 1, 2009
Between the unwieldy load of back story and the painfully underdeveloped characters, this infelicitous combination of Jumper, X-Men and TV's Heroes manages to be dull and exhausting at the same time.
