One Push Can Change Everything.
Two young americans with special abilities must race to find a girl in hong kong before a shadowy government organization called 'division' does.

"...the pleasure of Push comes from its glamorized grit, its no-nonsense pacing and the committed performances of the actors...  Dan Zak, The Washington Post
"The strength of Push is its relentlessness...when it provides exposition, it does so without bringing the action to a grinding halt.  James Berardinelli's ReelViews
"Imaginatively filmed by Peter Sova, Push has a dizzying, chaotic energy that pulls you along.  Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
"Push has a cool, sinewy style, energy to burn.  Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Superhero fans will likely be into Push just for the cool-factor of watching embattled heroes and villains in tense war of wits, wills, and skills.  Tasha Robinson, The Onion A.V. Club

Editor's Note
Scotsman Paul McGuigan (WICKER PARK, GANGSTER NO. 1) directs this high-energy sci-fi thriller set in Hong Kong. Nick (Chris Evans) is a "mover," meaning he can move objects with his mind. As a child, he escaped from Special Agent Carver (Djimon Hounsou) of the Division, a U.S. government operative who rounds up those with psychic gifts so that the government can perform experiments on them with the goal of creating a psychic army. Ten years later, Chris is lying low in Hong Kong when 13-year old "watcher" Cassie (Dakota Fanning), who can see the future, shows up on his doorstep. Together, this odd couple sets off on an adventure that brings them to Kira (Camilla Belle), who has escaped the Division and is on the run. Kira possesses a dangerous gift: she is a "pusher" who can plant ideas and make anyone believe anything she wants. Along with some other psychic friends, Nick, Cassie, and Kira go on a frenetic quest that may bring down the shady Division and set its psychic captives free.

PUSH?s psychics are a bit closer to superheroes, albeit without the costumes: "sniffers" can see the recent past by smelling an object, "shadows" can keep people and objects hidden, "shifters" can temporarily change the appearance of an object, and so on. The special effects in the fight scenes featuring Agent Victor Budarin (Neil Jackson), who can shield himself from bullets and send people flying across the room with a whisk of his hand, are particularly well done. Evans holds his own as the reluctant hero, and Fanning is, as always, a formidable presence on screen. Hong Kong itself is another character in the film, providing a crowded, fast-paced, anonymous backdrop for the action.

Expert Review Push - DVD Review
By: David Thomas DVD Reviews
Published on: 6/26/2009 7:44 PM
In the first minute of Push, a character utters a line that's all but verbatim: "Save the cheerleader; save the world." With the film's unapologetic intent to lift freely from Heroes and its progenitor X-Men firmly established, we're then treated to virtually nothing new in the ordinary-folks-with-extraordinary-abilities subgenre. Opening credit narration explains that there exist people born with special powers they don't necessarily want, and since the '40s an entity called Division has been trying to round them up and turn them into super-soldiers. There are a handful of abilities, and if you have one, you get a catchy name. Watchers can see the future. Pushers can put thoughts in your the full review

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"Imaginatively filmed by Peter Sova, PUSH has a dizzying, chaotic energy that pulls you along." 02/06/2009

Washington Post
"[T]he execution is fresh, earnest and inoffensive. It's a gussied-up knockoff of a Scorsese mob movie, shellacked with an opaque sheen of Clancy-style espionage, stir-fried with a bit of Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez and the Wachowski brothers." 02/06/2009

Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "PUSH explodes into action....It's an ambitious, original effort..." 04/01/2009

ReelViews 8 of 10
An original concept that isn't directly based on any comic books or graphic novels, Push nevertheless feels like an adaptation and concept similarities between the movie and the TV series Heroes are hard to miss. Push is clearly designed to be the first chapter of a multi-part saga but, unlike last year's Jumper, it hedges its bets enough so that if there are no future installments, at least there's a degree of closure...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. These come to light when the movie is examined in retrospect but are not a major detriment to the average viewer's enjoyment as the story unfolds. Director Paul McGuigan and screenwriter David Bourla have crafted the film in such a way that the characters' arcs are not linear. I was never certain exactly what was going to happen next, and that factor allowed Push to hold my interest...For Chris Evans, this is not his first venture into the superhero genre, although Nick Grant is a more interesting and sympathetic character than Johnny Storm (a.k.a. The Human Torch). With Cassie, Dakota Fanning continues to transition from child roles to adult ones, and impresses with both her range and maturity; here, she toys with firearms and gets drunk. This may fundamentally be Nick's story, but Cassie is the sparkplug...The strength of Push is its relentlessness. The movie doesn't pause for anything and, when it provides exposition, it does so without bringing the action to a grinding halt. The movie has an ambitious backstory and one senses that, if there is a Push 2, there will be no difficulty finding new avenues to explore. In fact, the movie is almost too short. Given another 15-20 minutes, there are subjects that could have been expanded and ideas that could have been better mined. - James Berardinelli

Chicago Sun-Times 5 of 10
"Push" has vibrant cinematography and decent acting, but I'm blasted if I know what it's about. Oh, I understand how the characters are paranormals, and how they're living in a present that was changed in the past, among enemies who are trying to change the future. I know they can read minds and use telekinesis to move things. I know they're a later generation of a Nazi experiment gone wrong, and the U.S. Army wants them for super-soldiers...But that's all simply the usual horsefeathers to set up the situation. What are they doing? The answer to that involves a MacGuffin that would have Hitchcock harrumphing and telling Alma, "Oh, dear, they really have allowed themselves to get carried away." The MacGuffin is a briefcase. Yes, like in "Pulp Fiction," but this time we know what's in it. It's a drug or serum that kills paranormals. And the Division desperately wants it...I'm not sure if the Division is part of the Army or against it. I know that the telekinetic Nick (Chris Evans) is hiding from it in Hong Kong, and that the Pusher Cassie (Dakota Fanning) finds him there and brings along the briefcase (I think), and that she's followed there by most of the other characters, including Kira (Camilla Belle) and the Division agent Henry (Djimon Hounsou), who is another Pusher. Pushing involves not drugs but Pushing into other people's minds...Dakota Fanning's Cassie claims at one point that she's "older than 12," but I dunno. Her mother would probably not have allowed her to fly off to Hong Kong alone, wearing a miniskirt and sporting a hairstyle with purple streaks, but her mother has been killed, which is part of her problem. She does get a little drunk, which provides the movie's only laugh. Dakota's real mother probably told her, "Dakota, honey, why don't you take the role, and get to see Hong Kong?" If that's what happened, she has the best reason of anybody for being in this movie. - Roger Ebert
