Sci-fi thriller has more style than story; some iffy stuff.

Rotten: Push is an empty calorie extravaganza and demands a crooked concentration it doesn't earn to sufficiently piece this mess together.

Rotten: Belle... is blank as a page, and the intended romantic chemistry between her and Evans is never in evidence.

A great concept. They didn't feel the need to make the characters with powers too superheroish. It was very much in a real world, which was sort of a nice break from something like Heroes. Chris Evans did a great job and it was nice to see Dakota Fanning not in a kid-like role. The concept is pretty mature for being a superpower-oriented film and wasn't corny like so many of the adaptions have been (spider-man, daredevil, Elektra, Blade).

Take an episode of "Heroes" that you didn't think too much of smush it together with the safe and boring movie "Jumper" add in some plot lines that make no sense and mix that with a way of getting to the end that is impossible to follow as there is nothing to tie it together and you have..."Push." Much like "Jumper" I had really high hopes for this movie. Great concept (though this one we have seen), decent effects (in this case just barely decent), and a really poor execution. We have telekinetics playing with guns that so obviously look like they are on strings (I kid you not). I thought I was watching marionette mutant mafia in one scene...you'll know which one if you watch this. "Watchers" whose powers are barely defined. "Sniffers" who-well they were kind of cool. They had so many chances to take this movie so much farther and just didn't! This is a bunch of good ideas thrown together and only a few stick. The plot twists were contrived and dumfounding and not in a good way, but the entertainment factor was high when I was not getting too frustrated with the inconsistencies. Check it out if you like, but let;s hope the sequel is better as they seem to be gearing up for one. Almost 3 stars for entertainment factor only.
