It's an ambitious attempt to shove the whole of a fairly complex comic book universe into a single messy and garish movie.

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.

Push has vibrant cinematography and decent acting, but I'm blasted if I know what it's about.

I thought Hayden Christensen in last year's Jumper would be as bland a mutant as the screen would ever give us, but that was before I saw Chris Evans in Push.

February 6, 2009
You have to be clairvoyant to follow the particulars of this overly complicated, unconvincing thriller about folks with paranormal abilities.
April 2, 2009
A sci-fi thriller with a lot of science fiction and zero thrills.

There isn't a single word in the English language that could justly convey the sheer stupidity, and impenetrable complexity, of Push.

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.

an overheated stewpot of divisions, sects and subsects of extra-special, special and quasi-special mentalists, all running around like their pants are on fire ... maybe in search of a viable plot?

Dashes from genre to genre in search of a reason to exist.
Full Review | Original Score: 40/100
February 19, 2009
The lack of any convincing over-arching plot, the muddled use of alternating futures and squashed-together gaggle of wafer-thin characters renders the project a near complete failure when it comes to thrills and entertainment.

If the words "A bit like Jumper but not as good" strike fear into your heart then you might want to avoid this turgid superpower stinker.

Going to see this film doesn't make much sense. It's obviously been cynically conceived as a franchise starter, but abruptly flicking to the end credits seemingly mid-movie is not a good way to start one.

Push barely measures up to even the worst moments on "Heroes," and it makes 20th Century Fox's weaker superhero efforts look much better.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/10
February 6, 2009
Push has amazing special effects and production design, but that doesn't compensate for the messy, incoherent plot and lack of truly palpable Sci-fi thrills and excitement.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

When Push comes to shove, don't expect to care about any of it.

A movie so bland, it might as well have been filmed in Hounslow.

September 8, 2009
The most amazing thing about this by this idiotic sci-fi thriller is that the actors do not crack up when delivering their lines.
