Push DVDPush
Directed by Paul McGuigan
Starring Chris Evans, Dakota Fanning, Camilla Belle
Summit Entertainment
Rated PG-13
Release date: July 7, 2009

It’s a well-known fact that super powers are cool. Super powers mean anything can happen and it probably will – awesomely. So Push, a movie set in a world where possibly millions of people have some kind of power must be amazing…right?

Living among us, largely undetected, are people with extraordinary psychic powers. In 1945, the Nazi’s began conducting experiments on these special people, injecting them with radioactive Iodine that would turn them into super soldiers ready to do battle in psychic warfare. Today, the Nazi regime may have ended but the experiments continue thanks to Governments the world over who have set up Divisions. Their job is to scour the globe looking for people with psychic abilities and round them up for testing.

So far, everyone who has been injected has died. Until Kira (Camilla Belle). The injection works as it is supposed to on her, increasing her Pushing ability (I’ll explain shortly) and Kira escapes from Division with a syringe of the lethal potion. All under the watchful, evil eye of Henry Carver (Djimon Hounsou). It is now Division’s priority to bring her back.

When Nick was a young boy he watched helplessly as his father was killed by Division. Before he died he told Nick that he would meet a girl who would hand him a flower and if he helped her, he would ‘help us all.’ Ten years later we meet Nick (Chris Evans) living in a shabby apartment in a rundown area of Hong Kong. He is struggling to master his telekinetic powers, trying to make his dice fall as he wants them to. This has lost him some serious gambling money which he owes to some nasty guys. To make matters worse, Division have tracked him down and want to take him in for testing.
