Mini-review: Push

Who doesn’t love a good action movie?  I know I do!  Especially when people can do sweet shit, like moving things with their minds and yell so loudly things explode.  The whole plot can be summed up in the trailer which is awesome, so just watch that.

The movie is certainly enjoyable.  It has good action, a serviceable plot, and a unique setting to show push-movieeverything off.  Push also manages to do what few other action movies can – not have a silly will they? won’t they? romance.  The two leads meet, they hook up, bam, done.  THANK YOU.

There was a lot wrong with the movie.  The final plot point was a bit convoluted and impractical.  The final action was slightly unsatisfying.  But more importantly, the action wasn’t quite as good as it could have been.  We’ve seen superpower action before.  The X-Men 1 & 2, the first season of Heroes, the vastly underrated Jumper.  When it comes down to it, I would rather watch more compelling superhero action than watch Push.  And a better story.
