Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Silliness rules the day: plot holes abound and are plugged with techno-pounding action sequences and more nonsensical guff. As a TV pilot, this might have worked; as a film, it's loud, confusing and inane."
‑ Tom Huddlestone, Time Out
"Push has vibrant cinematography and decent acting, but I'm blasted if I know what it's about."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"jThe script has no deep meaning and the film does just what it was intended to do: take an audience on a fantastical journey with loads of action."
‑ Perri Nemiroff, CinemaBlend.com
"Light fixtures are the true stars in "Push," constantly reflecting, twinkling and popping. Its best moments are when guns levitate and fire themselves. When you don't even need actors to hold pistols, it's the ultimate in autopilot filmmaking."
‑ Nick Rogers, Suite101.com
"The premise is promising all right, but it's a movie over-stuffed with talk and actors with a glazed look as though they too aren't sure of what they're doing."
‑ , Courier Mail (Australia)
"Paul McGuigan's jittery editing and shaky cameras make the action confusing rather than thrilling, and nothing can save this movie from the screenplay's nearly incomprehensible twists."
‑ Hank Sartin, Time Out New York
"There are many problems with Push, and most are the usual boring things: unnecessary plot loops; long, dumb musical interludes; a charmless script; and ostentatious action sequences in which the only person excited is the cameraman."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Push is an empty calorie extravaganza and demands a crooked concentration it doesn't earn to sufficiently piece this mess together."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"Push is a chase film dolled up with supernatural powers and chintzy retro design motifs."
‑ Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald
"There isn't a single word in the English language that could justly convey the sheer stupidity, and impenetrable complexity, of Push."
‑ Anders Wotzke, Moviedex
"Belle... is blank as a page, and the intended romantic chemistry between her and Evans is never in evidence."
‑ Christopher Orr, The New Republic
"A silly movie that is partially engrossing and plenty convoluted."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"Set and filmed on location in bustling Hong Kong, the tight urban street and winding alleyways suit the film perfectly, but this is not enough to save Push from the Oscar season garbage dump."
‑ Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire
"McGuigan's saving grace is a willingness to slow down and savour his own images. At best, a moody inconsequence takes over and confusion feels like part of the plan."
‑ Jake Wilson, The Age (Australia)
"The most amazing thing about this by this idiotic sci-fi thriller is that the actors do not crack up when delivering their lines."
‑ Rhiannon Sawyer, FILMINK (Australia)
