Before Chris Evans was Captain America he did a really cool sci-fi film called Push. It co-starred Dakota Fanning and Djimon Hounsou. Released in 2009 the film was a modest success and popular with the movie going crowd. It was not met with much critical reception however.
The story focuses on a government division established in 1945 that experiments on people with psychic abilities. There are 'Movers" who can move things with there minds, and "Pushers" who can control peoples minds. The agency has "Watchers" that, you guessed it watch these people.
In present day we meet a "Pusher" named Nick Grant (Chris Evans) who ants to stop this agency from hunting down and hurting people with powers. He also out for revenge as one of the Watchers killed his father when he was younger. This same water, a man named Carver (Djimon Hounsou) has developed a drug that can actually increase people powers, the only side effect is it seems to kill you. However one test subject, a girl named Kira (Camilla Belle) survives and with her enhanced powers escapes. She of course meets Nick and the two decide to team up to bring the organization down.
The film is action packed, but I have always felt it is too convoluted. There are so many backstory's, and sub plots, and different organization members, hell, even the Chinese Triad are involved in this. The effects and action scenes are well done, and fans of sci-fi, particularly the Tomorrow People should find this enjoyable if they have yet to see it.
Now for the transfer. Lionsgate is doing a tremendous job on there 4K releases and Push is no exception. Everything about this looks great. Now keep in mind this was not a low budget film. I believe it had well over a 100 million dollar budget, and this 4K really shows it off. I have the DVD from years back and this is a 100% improvement. Every light and burst and surge from these peoples powers fly's towards you. Its so lifelike it is scary. The audio is bellowing as well especially if you have surround sound. Its as crisp as the Dolby you hear in the theater.
I can honestly say if you have a 4K player this is a must own just for the transfer, as it really shows off what a 4k player is capable of. SO for the transfer alone I will recommend you purchase it.
Overall 3 out of 5 Stars
