DVD: Push (12)
Friday 12 June 2009
Nick (Chris Evans) and Cassie (Dakota Fanning) are a pair of rebel psychics on the run from a shadowy organisation known as "The Division".
Nick's a "mover"; he can move stuff with his mind. Cassie is a "watcher"; she can see the future. The fact that all this requires an explanatory voiceover at the start should give viewers a pretty uninviting premonition of the next 111 minutes, but in its own right, Push is reasonably diverting. Evans is always likeable; Fanning is always watchable; Djimon Hounsou, as the villain, has charisma to burn. The problem is that Push can't erase the memory of all the things it has copied: X-Men, Heroes; even last year's Jumper felt more original than this. Oh well.
