Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It gets off on the highwire fun of living on a digital dare and then pisses away its provocations by lecturing us with a metaphorical take on social media as an STD. What a buzz kill.
Fresh: Joost and Schulman use nearly every trick imaginable to keep Nerve's energy at a consistently high level and to give it a visual uniqueness.
Fresh: "Nerve" is sharp looking and delivers real jolts, even if the climax pushes things a bit far and wraps up too easily. Or maybe it's an accurate look at what'll happen when "Nerve" becomes real?
Fresh: Like one of its daredevils hanging one-handed from skyscraper scaffolding, Nerve mostly manages to maintain its precarious balance of pulpy suspense and social commentary.
It's ok, nothing awesome
Maybe it's because I'm not a kid anymore, but this movie was pretty simple, nothing surprising, and utterly predictable. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad flick. But with all the 5 star reviews, even if it's from a bunch of teens, I expected something more. It's nothing more than a modernized take on a been-there-done-that script. Acting was fair to good throughout, special effects were decent, but overall I'd say if you're over the age of 25, this isn't going to impress or resonate with you. Wait for when you're really bored and it comes out on Netflix or HBO. Or never. You're not missing anything.
I am a huge fan of both Emma Roberts and Dave Franco so of course I had to see Nerve! Overall the movie was very fun. I love that there's even an app out not to be able to do (safer) dares. My only issue with the movie was that the actual ending itself was very anti climatic and seemed rushed. I think a lot of teens will love this movie though and I will definitely buy it when it comes out!
Dave Franco and Emma Robert? I couldn't have picked the best actors to play this role than them. They were outstanding and amazing! The movie was so good I had to buy it for myself! I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. It's just a rush, it gets your heart racing. I Recommend to anyone.
