PUSH… Honestly I can only say one thing that was good with it – Dakota Fanning. Despite the tripe she was given as plot, and the wooden mannequins who made up the rest of the cast, Dakota says her lines with conviction, acts as if its important how and where she moves, and is convincing. Its a pity NOBODY else is. The male lead is more wooden than Seagal or Schwarzenegger at their worst; in fact if either of those had been in it they would probably have rescued this…thing. Psychic kung fu may SOUND cool, but it looks pretty stupid after the first couple of seconds.
Somehow Empire magazine apparently rated this as “Thrilling – X Men meets Trainspotting”. X Men was a whole order of magnitude better than this. Maybe this THING would have been rescuable if it had had a better director, a better male lead, some convincing villains and a more coherent plot. Quite possibly a combination of Ridley Scott, one of Arnold Schwarzenegger/Stephen Seagal/John Cusack as the male lead, and some adversaries who could act, would have resulted in a fun romp.
Dakota would have remained excellent throughout things, but one always remembers excellence within excellence, whereas she has to write this one off on her CV as being excellence within a pile of shite.
RATING : 3 out of 10
