A few weekends ago, I went to the cinema not once but twice, and one of the films I went to watch was Nerve but originally I was going to watch Suicide Squad, however because I went for a meal, by the time we finished, we would have to of waited a bit longer, and I actually really wanted to watch Nerve, so that’s what we did. Everything happens for a reason, because I don’t usually give it away this early, but this film was the most amazing film I’ve ever seen! That’s all you need to know, goodbye! Haha just kidding…
Those of you who don’t know what Nerve is about, its about a girl called Vee, who’s fed up of living life on the sideline, when she gets pressured to join the game by some of her friends. She eventually signs up for just one dare, but she finds herself caught up in the thrill of the adrenaline fueled competition, partnered with a stranger, the game takes a sinister turn. She leaves herself in a sticky situation, which could determine her and her mums future.
I liked everything about this film, and the soundtrack is pretty amazing, if you haven’t done, you should definitely Google it. Both Emma Roberts and Dave Franco, are brilliant actors and make you go through all different kinds of emoticons. Some challenges make you feel like your doing them yourself and you’ll find yourself gasping for breath. (You’ll know what I mean if you’ve seen it)
What I disliked about Nerve was that it ended. I actually couldn’t tell you anything I didn’t like about it, maybe see more challenges, but there is only so much you can put into a film. I really hope they make a second one, fingers crossed because I loved it. Don’t listen to the criticism you read, I think it’s quite harsh, and I don’t think it’s getting the credit it deserves.
My Film Rating: 10/10

Great post; you have nailed what Nerve is about. Its also a satire on the herd mentality upon which social media thrives. But its also a bit predictable, the acting is far from deep and meaningful, and could have dug deeper, so I could only give it 3 out of 5 stars.
