Nerve, is a film about dares. A high school senior named Vee (Emma Roberts) finds herself involved in an online game of dares, and every time the dare is completed the player earns money. Every dare increases up a level and manipulated by a community of anonymous people who are known as “watchers.”
When this film first released, I watched it and enjoyed it, but decided to watch it again, and I enjoyed it more this time than the first time, possibly as I have had no distractions or studying to complete.
The majority of this film gives the feeling as though something good is about to happen, but it ends up quickly becoming predictive on the next dare, and the overall plot too.
I do feel this film, and the way it was directed and produced could have been better to draw more viewers in, but they missed an opportunity to make this film better than it was, and to have a darker plot to the movie, leaving viewers wanting more.
The casting I felt was selected to grasp more of a younger audience in rather than viewers of any age, but overall I did enjoy the film, and would recommend, as I do with anything I watch.
I give this film a 3.5 star rating!
This film is available to stream now on Amazon Prime Video.
