It's a good story, but it didn't really work as a movie. The film takes place in an alternate universe where some people have special powers, and pretty much everyone knows about it. These powers have been around for a while, but the people who have them have never been lucky.
The powers vary a lot, but the most common kinds are things like Movers (telekinetics), Watchers (precogs), Sniffs (touch-telepaths), Shifters (shifters), Bleeders (sonic scream), Stitches (healing), and Pushers (telepathic influence). The Nazis experimented on them, trying to build the perfect soldier, and while the Nazi party died at the end of World War II, the experiments lived on in the United States, carried out now by a governmental department called Division.
Well, it's not easy to amp them up if you want the patient to stay alive after.
So, let's start off with Push, an independent superhero-esque movie that came out in 2009 and completely and utterly failed to cash in on the previous popularity of Heroes or any of the other "superheroes in plain clothes" franchises.
Nick's nice and all, but he's really not developed, and he never goes through a substantive character shift. Kira is a piece of furniture who has to be hauled around the city, saved, and is passed between sides like an ugly mug getting regifted.
The other characters are great in their roles, but they're never given the chance to take center stage.
The worst part is, Kira's a Pusher, which means she could influence anyone to take her anywhere. Oh, and she stole their copy of the drug and her DNA, so they can't recreate her success unless they find her.
Meanwhile, in Hong Kong, Nick Gant (Evans) is a low level Mover bumming around the underworld.
It's not awful, but it's certainly not something you want to sit through more than once.
