The choice to shoot the film in Hong Kong was inspired by the classic film Casablanca (1942). Indeed, director Paul McGuigan explains that in the thirties and forties, Casablanca was a den for scoundrels and the perfect place to hide as everyone could go there. To the makers of the film, Hong Kong was the 2000's equivalent to Casablanca. See more »

Dad, what's happening?
I need you to listen to me, like we're the last two people on the planet, okay Nick? Someday, a girl is going to give you a flower. You got that? A flower. And you have to help her, Nick. You help her, and you help us all. Okay? I know it doesn't make any sense right now, but I believe the woman who told me that. Do you think you can believe me?
I love you. Know how I've said that you were special Nick? Turns out that I was right.

PUSH is one of those movies which really got me excited after the first viewing of the trailer, and now that I've finally watched it, I'm glad that I did.
The storyline was rather good and believable, didn't leave me confused or bored at the end. Although more time could have been spent explaining certain things in detail instead of the constant scenes of standing around and pondering the next move.
The visual effects in this film are pretty good. And the acting isn't too bad either. Applause for Dakota Fanning and Chris Evans. Also, I really enjoyed the way the movie was shot, there was somehow this sense of realism to the whole thing.
However, I didn't enjoy Camilla Belle's acting. Although I did enjoy her performance in The Quiet, she just seemed really off in this movie. Either she wasn't given enough screen time, or she was outshone by Dakota.
By the way, those who are comparing this show to HEROES are preposterous. Telekineseis and all of these special abilities have been around long before then! Though I am a huge fan of HEROES, I think it's really nothing in comparison to PUSH.
By the way, this show had me glued to the sit even when I really had to use the toilet. In other words, I hope there's a sequel.
