Movie Review For Push
This is a strangely enjoyable science fiction movie. I half expected it to be similar to Jumper, and Wanted with James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie, and the plot does get a little convoluted.
It stars the lovely Dakota Fanning (The secret lives of Bees, I believe that was her sister in Phoebe in Wonderland) as Cassie Holmes and Chris Evans (Street Kings, 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Fantastic Four) as Nick Gant. Two individuals who have found themselves in Hong Kong, in a race against time to find another girl Kira Bird played by the lovely Camille Belle (you might find something about her eyes being strangely familiar, of course she was Evolet in 10,000 B.C.) in the hope to bring down the secret agency that has been hunting them down, and making their lives and those of their families hell.
They all have special abilities, and this is where it can get a little confusing, Pushers can push thoughts into people making them believe what they want, and do what they want, Movers can move objects, Watchers can predict the future (of course the future is subject to change), Stitchers can stitch people back together that have been injured even those injured by Bleeders, who have the ability to echo high auditory screams that can smash glasses, damage ear drums, blood vessels, and literally move objects and people, Sniffers can literally find anyone just from touching their belongings, just like a dog, Wipers can wipe memories, Shifters can move patterns of light around objects to change the shape and appearance, we get to meet a shifter played by the fantastic Cliff “The Chameleon” Curtis as Hook Waters, and Shadows can prevent people by being found by Sniffers.
From the all action beginning where the young Nick Gant has to run away from the antagonist Henry Carver played by Djimon Hounsou (Amistad, Never Back Down), to the confrontations between Nick and Victor Budarin played by Neil Jackson (Quantun of Solace, Blade: The series), it is a continuous action flick, with interesting plot twists many are sure to enjoy.
