Push is a chase film dolled up with supernatural powers and chintzy retro design motifs.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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.

Totally watchable, totally forgettable.

In time this would-be thriller comes to rest with a fist fight, a hanging ending and the implicit promise of a sequel. Of all the calamities that Fanning predicts, Push 2 is one she missed.

Sci-fi hokum to give you a headache.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
February 19, 2009
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/6

"What if nothing we did made any sense. Would that throw them off the scent?" Nick asks. You bet.

Belle... is blank as a page, and the intended romantic chemistry between her and Evans is never in evidence.
February 6, 2009
Push has vibrant cinematography and decent acting, but I'm blasted if I know what it's about.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
February 6, 2009
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.

February 6, 2009
A silly movie that is partially engrossing and plenty convoluted.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 6, 2009
Evans and 10,000 BC's Belle shuffle through a turgid romantic subplot, and though the two characters are very, very pretty, they've got the chemical spark of a banana.

A grubby cut-price sci-fi thriller.

Just as it's getting impossible to tell the superpowered humans without a scorecard, along comes Push to muddy the waters.

By the time the credits roll, your most fervent wish is to run into a 'wiper' (one who can erase memories).

February 6, 2009
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.

One long mistake from start to finish, this is a film that never gets its rhythms or bearing right.

As far as I can tell, the only ability in short supply is acting.

A trippy, nonstop action fest, with the feel of a really good episode of Heroes.

February 5, 2009
It's the perfect brain vacation for those overtaxed by Oscar-nominated movies.
February 5, 2009
An ambling, broody concoction along the lines of Strange Days.

Not much of it makes sense. The rest isn't terribly interesting.

Imagine if the X-Men had spent most of their time sitting around talking about how they were going to fight Magneto instead of ever actually doing anything and you'll have a good sense of what is wrong with Push.

February 4, 2009
It's an ambitious attempt to shove the whole of a fairly complex comic book universe into a single messy and garish movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 4, 2009
A weightless, style-driven thriller set in a photogenically chaotic Hong Kong.
Full Review | Original Score: C
February 4, 2009
The film is blessed with a frenetic pace that simultaneously accomplishes two things: it keeps the energy level high while obfuscating some of the most obvious logical flaws in the plot's structure.

February 2, 2009
Director Paul McGuigan and screenwriter David Boula are content to rely on the usual suspects, taking their visual and dramatic cues from other, more clever and involving sci-fi capers.
February 2, 2009
A confused jumble of parts in search of a whole.
