Movie Review by Zara
July 25th, 2009

What if they essentially took the show "Heroes" and gave it a 2 hour long story arc in which to get an entire message across? You'd get PUSH.

Supernatural powers are something that most everyone can relate to because most everyone has had times in their life where they've felt helpless or wanted to be greater than the normal person that they are. Comic books started a lot of the potential fascination for what could be and recent movies and television have further perpetrated that ideal.

However, most of the time, and this is one of those times, the characters are hunted down, looked down upon or overall just can't be allowed to enjoy the fact that they can do really cool things through no special means other than just being themselves. And I hate that. Why can't people with special powers just be allowed to have fun? Why DOES great responsibility HAVE to come with great power? Why can't they just be allowed to be weird and cool and chill and not have people chasing them or trying to kill them, etc etc?

For the most part, PUSH is a very dull movie with some good special effects and some decent acting. There's nothing that sets it apart from anything that's come before it or will undoubtedly come after it. People with special powers get hunted, get even, start running again. Big whoop. The day you can deliver a movie to me where they get to party and have a good time, I'll be more interested.
