A taut and highly pertinent contemporary nightmare of a film which careens about with so much promise only to fizzle out just before the finish line. Firmly rooted in a depersonalized culture which bases self-worth on the number of “likes” one can get, where emotions are a spectator sport and life is observed through the lens of a smartphone, Henry Joost and Ariel Shcuman’s savvy adaptation of Jeanne Ryan’s novel puts all that social media technology to effective use---even the film’s colours are exaggerated as if the world itself has been photoshopped. It’s too bad then that after almost ninety minutes of tense build-up the ending arrives like a weak-kneed composite of "The Goonies" and "Mad Max" with avenging hackers and OMGs! all around.---“Kids, don’t try this at home” and “Pics, or else it didn’t happen” seem to be the only take-home messages here. At least the kick-ass soundtrack offers some redemption with tracks from the likes of Roy Orbison, Wu-Tang Clan, and Icona Pop.

I can't remember the last time I watched a movie that made me anxious. I loved it. It wasn't an action movie and it didn't pretend to be. It wasn't a teen movie and it didn't pretend to be. Great thriller.

Was an interesting movie, so interesting it made me want to read the book.

Similar to Hunger Games but not set in the future. This was very scary for a dad. I have 4 daughters. I kept having to leave the room because I was just too nervous about what would happen. My teenage daughters loved it so go figure. The movie was really well done but much too realistic for me. I think I will curtail my use of facebook. I wonder if this is what our society has in store in the not-to-distant future? Egad.

From an old man's opinion, I think I lasted five minutes into the show and was not going to waste my evening. I'm now living on what could be called borrowed time, I'll leave this to the fifteen year olds.

For a movie based off of a teen novel, it was enjoyable enough. It was action packed and had a pretty intriguing story-line. Overall, I'm glad I didn't have to pay money to watch it.

Tired of Pokémon Go or Geocaching? Play/watch the “Nerve” game, a crowd sourced thrill seeking AR (Augmented Reality) hosted by anonymous gamers in the darkweb. One fast joy ride with a satisfying finish.

A thriller that comments on the dark side of social media. Worth a watch!

You think that takes nerve? Why don't you take off your masks and show yourselves, huh? You, take off your mask.
Yeah, what's your name? It's easy for you to be brave in a crowd! Hiding behind your screen names. Don't you guys see that you're all still responsible for what happens tonight, even if you are just watching?

I have a quick question. How would I know if I'm being hacked?
-What do you mean?
Hacked. Somebody's been depositing money into my account under Vee's name.
-That doesn't sound like a hack. Normally, they would take money out if they were hacking you.

How do they know you're afraid of heights?
-What?
That's what they do. It's easy. They just take all your info from your old profiles and put it in your nerve profile.

Um... some kid came by and gave me that book. To the lighthouse, yeah, my favorite.
-Exactly. Because it's on your Facebook page. They know all the information about you, Vee.

I know how much you love living in the moment, Syd. Well, remember this moment. Because you're one of those
girls who peaks in high school. And when you wake up one day, still living in Staten island, still screwing the same guys,
wondering what the hell happened to your life.
===
You guys are the dumbest smart kids I've ever met.
