"Push" (Blu-ray)

PushSynopsis

A paranormal group of young people gather together to save the world, yet again.

The US Government, aka, The Division, wants to capture them and use them for their own purposes. They consist of Watchers, who can fortell the future, Movers, who can move objects with their mental power, and Pushers, who can put thoughts in your head and turn them into the truth. No wonder the government wants them.

So, while the group is being hunted, they try to capture a briefcase that holds information dangerous in the hands of any nation.

Commentary

Is anyone besides me getting tired of super hero movies? There just does not seem to be anything that distinguishes them except their costumes. The background for the story is Hong Kong, but we have seen that before. Come on guys, suprise us.

Technical

The image is very sharp, and there is modest use of the surround channels.

Extras

There are only a few extras: Director Commentary, Deleted Scenes, and The Science Behind the Fiction.
