Mismanages the thrills and ends up being a mushy teen love story
17 October 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie is definitely an example of missed opportunities. In the post #Snowdengate world, we are more aware of the dangers of internet than ever. Nerve could have been an awesome dystopian sci- fi story about identity thefts, dangerous cyber-criminal underworld or just generally subversive technology dependent society. There are many great movies like Minority Report and Enemy of the State that take on the idea of surveillance. TV shows like Mr. Robot have already broadened our outlook on social networking and hacking. In this environment, a superficial outtake on this subject is more nerve-wrecking than the ill-informed 1995 thriller The Net.

Nerve is not without its redeeming virtues though. It opens up today's generation to a debate of what is sensible and what is not. There is even some ethical pondering towards the end of the movie but its too little too late. By that time we are already fixated on the beautiful couple of Dave Franco and Emma Roberts. Whatever message the movie could have mustered against peer pressure and bullying got flushed down the toilet as soon as you realize that without giving in to the demands of their peers our on- screen lovers wouldn't have even met. Nobody dies and the audience gets to go home without any emotional baggage. Its like a beautiful yet terrible person who you sorta date for a while because the sex is good and nothing else.

The idea of taking dares too far is not new. Yes, there are some scenes in it that remind you of the nauseating videos some Adrenalin junkies post on YouTube jumping on building roof tops without any kind of safety. The most thrilling parts were already covered in the trailer itself. I hoped for the characters to resolve the mess more intelligently but nothing came quite close to convincing. We see more believable techno babble in a single episode of Mr. Robot. On a hindsight, writing this review was probably a mistake as more I think of it, more it gets on my nerve (pun intended).
