    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Two awful things about Push are at least interesting: The first is the way in which the story is confused. The second is that the story makes no sense. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    A supernatural action thriller, is jangly, jarring and violent. But more disconcerting is watching the sweet-faced Dakota Fanning swear, get drunk and pack heat -- in both fists, no less. show more

    Push has a cool, sinewy style, energy to burn. show more

    Fanning's watcher is watchable, yet the kid-actress extraordinaire is so polished it kind of makes your head explode. show more
