Review: Push (2009)

Could have, would have, should have...

With this director, cast and sci-fi concept this could have been so much better - but ends up an entertaining, if cliche ridden, disappointment. Think Cronenberg's SCANNERS or the Stephen King FIRESTARTER adaptation and you've seen it all before. Like the similarly inclined JUMPERS this could have been great, but ends up a bit... mewh. Just like LIMITLESS, unless film-makers put the same investment, time and care into the script that goes into special effects it'll always come up short. Shame. Anyway, if you like Dakota - see THE RUNAWAYS instead!
