Goofs

According to the letter Vee receives by email, this film's story begins on March 20, 2017, yet the next day her high school has a football rally, which is unusual since football is a fall sport. Also, she is shown joining the Nerve game on the night of the next day, March 21, 2017, but the bank website shows the date of April 20, 2017. Later in the film, an online discussion forum shows comments about the current game dated in 2016, not 2017. See more »

Pleasantly Unexpected Thoughts and Feelings
31 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Taking viewers for a glamorous ride, Nerve brings a harmonious medley entertainment and thought-provoking contemplation. A multifaceted movie, Nerve doesn't fail to give the comedic, thrilling, edge-of- your seat entertainment that moviegoers crave on a night out. The chemistry between Franco and Roberts, the intense visuals, and memorable soundtrack readily draws watchers (get it?) into the movie. These features complement each other so well that the hearts of viewers still race hours after the end.

For those who want a deep, discussion starting movie, the door is there for those who want to open it. There's no overt pressure from the movie to draw a certain conclusion, or for watchers to take a certain stance on social media. Rather, it presents an unbiased entry into the thrilling world of social media with its upsides and downsides. Franco and Roberts display superb acting in the way they manifest of their characters history and unique motives through the course of the adrenaline-filled night. Nerve provides a stunning look at the different personalities and impulses that draw people to social media without explicitly labeling motives as wrong or right. Nerve comes at an especially relevant time with the increasing concern over social media and its consequences, and the directors produced a wonderful spark to incite discussion and awareness on this important topic. However, there's no force on audiences to answer to the social media dilemma. Viewers draw their own conclusions as their personalities and thoughts guide them through the movie.

Nerve is quite the package. There's enough nerve-racking displays to keep your hearts thumping throughout the night, but there's also the second layer of radical questioning to plague your minds as the night goes on. All in all, Nerve is a great option for those who want to experience an alluring night filled with fun and great music, and for those who want a movie that draws out that reserved, subtle, philosophical parts in ourselves.
