You know that kind of thing where someone has a good idea and then doesnt want to allow anyone else near it? They just want to take credit for it without thinking it through.

Push feels like that. The idea is really that Jedi powers really exist for ordinary people. That’s it. There may have been a link  between the people who thought of this and those who thought of the TV series Heroes or maybe the film Cardigan… sorry, Jumper.

Anyway, it’s a confused plot trying to be intriguing and ending up being a bit messy with light and scenery problems thrown around by dodgy camera work. Ok, maybe not really bad lighting and scenery and camera work but I’d expect more from this budget. We get a few nice effects but the plot holes mess it up.

Someone should have given a second opinion here before they got to filming because the concept is nice enough and I have always wanted to have the power to pickup stuff from a long way away without bending down and the like. It could have been a contender. But no, it’s ended up pish.

Won’t be remembered. And the DVD extras didn’t get me going either.

Keep DVD?
No.
Watch if on TV?
Yes, so I can remember anything about it.
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Avoid.
