My grade: C Old poster, opens this Friday the 6th I do believe. That is a generous grade cause the more I think on it the more this is leaning in the C- direction. I saw this last night at a free screener and when it was over the audience literally seemed to just be happy it was over. No discussion as people shuffled out discussing any cool scenes. No discussion about where a future film might lead. Nothing. Its not uncommon to hear this at screeners I attend, hell opening night movies I've attended. Was it a case of bad directing? Maybe it was a sloppy screenplay? Perhaps some elements are tied up in bad editing? Even still it could be a combination of them all I suppose. Plot points seemingly come to furition at times with no explanation. Other plot points are never brought up after the first act. Another plot point is mentioned throughout the movie with no payoff. Now if that is a set up for a sequel then it was handled bad. The other three people I was with felt a payoff and that one point needed to be handled here. Spoiler: What is the plot point I mean? Cassie's(Dakota Fanning) mother is shown at the begining. She is shown as having something to do with an escape at the facility she is at. Other characters in the movie mention respecting her. An escape/break out is a desired thing for Cassie. Nothing though. During the movie you scratch your head at Camille Belle's character(Kira) and say, no way she physically does that. Not in the state they present her. Later a reveal is shown and you begrudginly go "ok, fine I'll buy that excuse" but by then you may not care. When the movie seems to be heading to a final conclusion it then just ends. I mean a serious fade to black *bang, bang* its over ending. You can't assume that the action they alluded to happend cause you don't see it. Maybe "x" happened and maybe it didn't. PUSH does nothing to 'push' the envelope of non-comic superhero style movies. It doesn't add anything new or mix anything up. I thought Wanted was very mediocre last year, yet some seemed to eat that up. If mindless action is what you want then maybe Push is for you. If you thought Wanted was good and "fresh enough" maybe you'll like this. Its just to mediocre for me. I'd pass on it in a Wal-Mart $5 bin, Wanted I might get.
