Alex brought Push (2009) over for Thursday night dinner (aka Finer Things Club – FTC). The plot centers on a group of psychics, granted various powers when they were born, who band together in an attempt to take down a government agency that is using a dangerous drug to enhance their powers in hopes of creating an army of super soldiers. Considering the whole “low profile” thing I found it funny how many others with abilities that they knew and went to for help. The premise is good. It just didn’t translate very well. There were a few things that didn’t add up. It’s hard to explain without giving the story away. There were “watchers” one of which the lead guy, Nick, made this elaborate plan to trick including writing letters to himself and the rest of the team then he got his memory erased… problem being she would have already seen the plan as he made it. The ending also seemed a little lackluster. The effects were ok (some way better than others). I really thought I was going to like this more. Overall, I’d say rent Heros and spend your time watching that instead of this.
