Even as little as five years ago, Nerve couldn't possibly have been made. Which makes me wonder, in four years from when Nerve was made (where the film is set), will it still be at all applicable? Already the social media it makes use of has changed from the time of filming to the date of release... Food for thought... With that out of the way, the movie itself: Just okay. The soundtrack is, at best, intrusive. The premise is old hat (although the exact way it's done is new). The message is a little blunt-force (though certainly not to Tomorrowland levels). The plot isn't quite solid.... read the rest.
