Sorry, Matchbox 20 fans, this is not a concert movie of your favorite band. Even worse, it’s a Dakota Fanning film. Yes, that’s right. Little Miss Creepy is back for another production wherein she portrays a preternaturally mature girl. Even the Blair Witch is scared of Dakota Fanning.

The story this time involves a group of powerful people who have developed specialized telekinetic and clairvoyant abilities. Fearing the way they were being used by the government, this troop has re-located in Hong Kong. When a secret American organization identifies the current whereabouts of the ex-patriots, they embark upon a mission to retrieve the previously lost military assets. The psionic specialists have no choice but to defend themselves against the invaders.

In addition to Fanning, the rest of the cast of Push is quite good. Chris Evans, the best part of the Fantastic Four movies, is the lead actor here. Camilla Belle of When a Stranger Calls and 10,000 B.C. is his co-lead and, presumably, love interest. Two-time Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou is the most accredited member of the cast. Also featured are Joel Gretsch (Tom Baldwin on The 4400) and Maggie Siff (Rachel Mencken on Mad Men). Push is directed by Paul McGuigan, whose offered consecutive excellent outings with Lucky Number Slevin and Wicker Park. (David Mumpower/BOP)
