Nerve: Movie Review

By: Matt Suzara

Vee (Emma Roberts) is a high-school senior who is afraid to take some risk and always live inside her comfort zone. When her friends pressured her to join a popular online game called Nerve, Vee decides to make a gamble and do one dare. However, when she experienced the thrill of the dare and happy to get some rewards with it, Vee decides to push and continue playing. Soon, Vee finds herself partnered with a mysterious player named Ian (Dave Franco) and they took the online game by storm gathering a lot of watchers but didn't know that there are high risks involved including her safety.  

Nerve is a film that creates a lot of fun and tension, especially on the early part of the film. It cleverly builds the thrilling pieces in every dare that our protagonists need to complete. It's like the movie "13 Sins" but with a much lighter theme and livelier stars. However, the film collapses on its final frame and can't seem to find a reasonable ending to all the fun they have started.

It has a lot of enjoyable moments that made the crowd go wild in some of the scenes. You can really feel the excitement flowing right through your veins keeping yourself glued onto your seat to avoid some bathroom break. Even you know that the entire thing is silly and sometimes predictable; Nerve actually delivers the best out of its fascinating premise. The lead stars bring a lot of things in the table as Emma Roberts and Dave Franco are simply a desirable pair. The two provided the energy and chemistry the film needs while giving the audience a team they can root for the entire time. 

Overall, Nerve is a compelling cyber thriller that knows how to deliver a stylish flick into the extreme. However, it fails to close out its innovative idea and just lose all the craziness it had from the beginning. It still an enjoyable flick that is worth of your time and hard-earned cash.
