This movie starts 10 years in the past, where Nick Grant (Colin Ford as a youth and Chris Evans as an adult) is a young teenager. His dad is killed by agents of the Division. As the story goes, the Division is a shadowy government organization that has continued doing research into the development of soldiers with psychic capabilities. This research was started in Nazi Germany in 1945 and has secretly continued since then. Radiation is used to improve these capabilities, however, the survival rate after the treatment has not been good.
In order to understand this movie, you need to be aware of the major categories of the different psychics and their capabilities:
- Watchers : able to see future events, demonstrated by drawings;
- Movers: able to control objects without physical contact;
- Pushers: able to implant thoughts and change memories;
- Shifters: these persons can change the appearance of objects;
- Sniffers: smell objects and personal effects to obtain associated info;
- Stitchers: these have healing and hurting capabilities;
- Bleeders: these by shouting can cause bleeding and internal damage;
[Other categories include: Loopers and Shadows no explaination is given for these.]
Cassie Holms (Dakota Fanning) is led by a drawing to find Nick and to get his help to find a briefcase that can lead to the Division's undoing. Initially, he is prepared to walk away from Cassie until a Chinese Bleeder gang who also wants to get their hands on this briefcase come into the picture. From there on in it is a 3-way toss up for who will end up with this prized briefcase.Read more ›
I have watched this movie many times and never tire of it. I only wish there had been a sequel.
"Push" is a gritty looking superhero movie that is not based on any existing comic book (for a change). It is fast paced and rich in mythology. Evans, who has some experience in these types of movies, is credible as Nick. Fanning, who is great in any movie she appears in, can add action star to her resume. The story is full of backstory, but that does not slow down the almost nonstop action. The gritty look adds to the feel of the film, and works well. "Push" is a surprisingly good film, and I recommend checking it out.
In the world of PUSH there are people who possess awesome psychic abilities. And, dating back to World War II and Nazi Germany, clandestine efforts have been made to control and experiment on these extraordinary paranormals. Decades later, and things haven't changed, only now it's a shadowy American government agency, simply called the Division, conducting these tests. There's this drug which is supposed to boost psychic abilities to ridiculous levels. The caveat is that, so far, only one patient has survived the injecting of this drug. And she just scampered the hell out.
The central character is Nick Gant (Evans), trying to keep a low profile in Hong Kong, if by low profile it's meant that Nick gambles with street thugs and uses his feeble telekinesis to influence the outcome of the dice rolls. Nick has been on the run ever since his dad got whacked by Division agents ten years ago. But now sniffers have ferreted out his location. About to amscray the eff out, Nick gets a knock on his door and this is where Dakota Fanning enters the picture and where the main storyline gets going.
13-year-old Cassie Holmes (Fanning) is a clairvoyant, although her talent is wobbly and, being a shaky artist at best, it's sometimes hard to make out what prophetic visions she's sketching on her drawing pad.Read more ›
