Push Review

3 out of 5

One push can change everything.

Plot: Two young Americans with special abilities must race to find a girl in Hong Kong before a shadowy government organization called Division does.

There are nine known types of psychics in Push:

Movers: Movers manipulate inanimate objects at varying distances. The actual technique is known as kinetic signature control, where the Mover is trained to hear and identify the specific atomic frequency of any given material and alter the gravity wave around it, usually producing the nearby air to appear warped. Advanced Movers can work at the molecular level creating protective shields in the air around them.

Pushers: Pushers push specific thoughts, memories, and even emotions into their targets. This technique can be used to gain a subject’s trust or to have them perform any action, thinking it was their own agenda.

Watchers: Watchers are trained to self-induce visions of the future, very much like a prolonged sense of déjà vu. The technique of following the future, either of a person or object, is called subject tracking. A Watcher’s skill is primarily rated by how far they can see into the future. Some Watchers are able to improve the clarity of their visions by consuming alcohol, although only Cassie and her mother have been revealed to do so.

Bleeders: Bleeders have the ability to emit high-pitched sonic vibrations that cause ruptures in a target’s blood vessels. Known to some fans as Screechers.

Sniffs: Sniffs are highly developed psychometrics who can track the location of either people or objects over varying distances. Like psychic bloodhounds, their tracking ability is increased if they have tactile access to an object that has been in direct contact with the subject. Sniffs receive information based on images, not specific addresses, which is why identifiable landmarks help increase their effectiveness.

Shifters: Shifters can temporarily shift patterns of light on any object to create illusions to the naked eye. They work mostly on a touch basis, but once the illusion is established, it remains with the object for short periods of time. For example, a Shifter could momentarily touch a one dollar bill, altering its light pattern to appear as a one hundred dollar bill for hours until the effect expires. In order to shift something, the object to be shifted must have roughly the same dimensions as what it will be shifted into. The length of the shift is based on experience and ability.

Wipers: Wipers are skilled at either temporary or permanent memory erasure, an invaluable asset in espionage. Experience will dictate the accuracy of their wipes, though the danger is always present that they will eliminate a desired memory.

Shadows: Shadows are trained to block the vision of other clairvoyants such as Sniffs, making any subject within their target radius appear “dark”. Experience will enhance the size of the area they can shadow and the intensity of their shielding effect. Shadows need to be awake to perform their ability, and it is common for a detail of two Shadows to operate in shifts while protecting a person or object for extended periods. Most Shadows are effective only against Sniffs, but some extremely powerful Shadows are able to block even Watchers.

Stitchers: Stitchers are psychic surgeons trained to quickly reconstruct cells to their previous or healthy state. Using only their hands, they can heal and even “unheal” whatever they have done. For more detailed work, Stitches use a silver based cream on their hands which acts as a conductor to their ability.

Ok well this film was interesting and at the same time super fake. Sure I like the moving things with your mind trick. Now I don’t see why people hated this film. If your into superhero type movies without people trying to save the world, this is your movie.

Give Push a chance, it was directed from the guy that brought us Lucky Number Slevin.

Starring Chris Evans, Dakota Fanning, and Djimon Hounsou.

Yes I know Dakota Fanning is a crappy actress and makes every film shes in suck. But this film isn’t one of them.

Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, brief strong language, smoking and a scene of teen drinking.

  1. I take issue with Dakota Fanning making movies suck. I really like her; I thought she was really good in I Am Sam, and ever since then I’ve liked her.

    Oh but I just went to IMDB and realized that I’ve barely seen her in anything I’ve liked since that movie, so I guess I can’t say too much about her…maybe she does ruin movies then. Except she’d better not ruin New Moon, lol.

    You know another young actress that I really like is that chic that was in Matchstick Men. She’s done some dumb movies, but she’s also done some good ones. I loved Matchstick Men; very good film.

    I really want to see Push though; it looks interesting anyway. I’ll get around to it whenever it’s on HBO or Showtime, lol.
