It sounds a bit like a mix between
Jumper to be honest, so we’re not too excited.
But Push has something Jumper didn’t have, namely the naturally
talented Chris Evans, better known as the Human Torch in the
Fantastic Four movies.
Evans really, um, shone bright in those movies and he might just end up
being the best thing in Push as well. (Incidentally, is anyone else here
as alarmed as we are by how quickly Dakota Fanning is growing up? Yikes!)
