Truth or Dare was a game I can guarantee all of you played at some point. Especially has a hot blooded teen mooning over bottles of WKD and hoping someone dares you to kiss your crush. Instead, it’s usually flashing a bra or mooning in the garden and eventually, the game fizzled out of your life.
Imagine if it didn’t and became a larger entity. Without the truth, and the dares, well, they can be deadly.
That’s what Nerve is all about.
Starring Emma Roberts and Dave Franco, Nerve revolves around a young girl named Vee who is encouraged to live a little and play Nerve. After scooping up Ian, a random stranger, the pair take to the streets of New York to meet the demands of Watchers for cash. Only, the game soon gets bigger and deadlier…
Just when you think the movie is going to be a somewhat sinister but sweet movie about over-coming your fears, the film takes a turn and becomes a darker film. Though, I really wish the film ended at the sweet and daring side. Because imagine watching that film, thinking it’s all hijinks and shenanigans then getting hit with the twist already clear in the trailer. Boo I say. Boo.
Looking like the social media version of The Purge but without the talents of Lena Headley or Ethan Hawke, Nerve could still be excellent…could be.
Nerve is out 27th May
