Movie Review: Nerve (2016)

Hellooo lovelies! Happy Saturday! I hope your week went well and that you’re enjoying your weekend. Currently I’m in the biggest reading slump evvverrr, so instead of books, I’ve been losing myself in movies.

One of my best friends recently got a little at home theater set up, so needless to say I’ve been a frequent visitor. Recently we watched Nerve which is a film I’ve been interested in since it came out, but I barely got around to it this week haha.

Here’s the synopsis: Description

Industrious high school senior Vee Delmonico (Emma Roberts) is tired of living life on the sidelines. Pressured by her friends, Vee decides to join Nerve, a popular online game that challenges players to accept a series of dares. It’s not long before the adrenaline-fueled competition requires her toperform increasingly dangerous stunts. When Nerve begins to take a sinister turn, Vee finds herself in a high-stakes finale that will ultimately determine her entire future.

This movie was a ride. A total ride. Throughout the whole movie my friend and I kept asking each other if we would be able to do the dates that Vee had to do, and honesty the first few seemed easy, but as she got deeper and deeper into the game we, as viewers, started saying “uhmmm… maybe not.”

I really liked how Vee broke out of this box that her friends had put her into. She really stepped out of her comfort zone which, if you’ve seen this movie is the whole purpose of this game.

There wasn’t much in the way of meat so far as this story goes, that I noticed at least. It was a decent way to escape reality for a little bit and it made you think “what would you do for money?”

I think my favorite scene in the movie is when Vee finally confronts her best friend about putting her in the “boring friend” box. It was an intense argument followed by an even more intense dare.

I think my least favorite scenes included Vee’s other, male best friend. I just found him to be very boring and kind of…. negative. Yeah he had the main character’s best interest at heart, in a way, but he still put her in that same boring box because he didn’t want her to change from the girl he’d basically fallen in love with.

All in all this movie was a fun ride! I’d definitely recommend it if you’re looking for something to take your mind off of things.
