More Info:
  • Kyle Smith

    The sharpest, wildest and most unpredictable thriller I’ve seen this year.

    New York Post Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    Blisteringly cool one moment and ridiculously silly the next (much like its high school heroine), this punchy and propulsive late summer surprise is able to capture the way we live now because it displays such a vivid understanding of the reasons why we live that way.

  • Allen Salkin

    Nerve, a thriller set in a world of smartphone-obsessed teens, is clever, exciting, sweet and full of quick twists that never devolve from serving a well-built story.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Nerve does a better job with its style and pacing than it does with its characters but, ultimately, Vee is likable enough for us to stay on the ride with her. For a late-summer throwaway, the film is surprisingly entertaining.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The complicated truth is that the Internet’s dangers are entwined with its pleasures, the allure of instant fame, the illusion of contact with masses of people. Nerve is the first movie to capture all that, and the result is a successful and memorable thriller.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Odie Henderson

    Nerve wants to be a cautionary tale about the perils of desiring fame through social media, but it isn’t willing to go to the darker depths this material requires. It opts to stay on a more superficial and very goofy level, and while that has its enjoyable charms, it pretty much negates the film’s message.

  • Owen Gleiberman

    Nerve is a comic-book vision of how the Internet has become a gladiatorial arena of voyeurism. But the movie, like the game it’s about, is hard to stop watching, even when you know it’s playing you.

    Variety Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Though Roberts is miscast as a wallflower — seriously, the film expects us to believe a jock in her class would dismiss the mannequin-perfect beauty as “not my type” — Nerve taps into the rush of realizing strangers think you’re cool.

    MTV News Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    Up until now, Roberts and Franco have been second-tier actors in the industry food chain, but their first-rate performances in this better-than-average genre flick exude something called charisma. After this film, the two of them may graduate from watchers to players.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Will Ashton

    As inviting as it is immersive and convivial, Nerve is bumpy, sloppy and rather unsophisticated, but it’s also ultimately sociable, warm, endearing and, most of all, pretty fun.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • John Fink

    The characters are just complex enough and the action is just engrossing enough to keep us interested, but Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, working from Jeanne Ryan’s novel, haven’t quite built a solid-enough foundation to foster a genuinely compelling commentary on today’s social media obsession.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Like most films about technology, Nerve will endure as a time capsule, fascinating future generations with either its prescience or its quaintness.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kevin P. Sullivan

    This is a film about young people with a youthful energy and sense of fun that’s refreshing, especially in the summer of movies we’ve had so far. The tone and relatively low stakes allows Nerve to be shallow, divertive escapism—kind of like Snapchat.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    Nerve is exciting, topical and potentially prescient, but it scores no points for character development, and the plot holes are so big that you could, well, drive a speeding motorcycle through them.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    A smart and reasonably taut thriller aimed at a generation that may be hard to convince to put down its phones long enough to watch.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    Nerve gives moviegoers everything they'd want from a teen romance. It's a little less successful as a critique of life in the age of Instagram.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Brad Wheeler

    Nerve looks fabulous and the pace is evenly adrenalized, which makes up for clichéd characters, a concocted premise and commentary that is a bit on the nose.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Katie Walsh

    As Nerve builds to a roaring Thunderdome climax (which is resolved all too easily), it starts to lose its grip. But the ride is a neon-saturated teenage dream, high on first kisses and digital hearts.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    The city and the plot points wheel right by, the leads fetchingly entranced with each other. If one patch of dares disappoints, there's another coming right up, and the directors stage and shoot them with swooning neon kinecticism.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Anna Smith

    With its engaging story, energetic soundtrack and slick production values, Nerve is an easy watch for restless young minds.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    It’s rare when you can pinpoint the exact moment a movie goes off the rails, but when Nerve downshifts from far-fetched parable into idiotic action, the film at least has the decency to speed itself along to get to the ending.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    While the film’s vertiginous set pieces are appropriately heart-clenching, it’s not nearly as successful at little details like plot and character.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    There's a killer idea circling this tricked-up teen thriller, which is more than you can say for most summer movies. But the idea never lands because Nerve lacks the, well, nerve to follow through on its convictions.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    There’s a line between enjoyably stupid and stupid-stupid, and Nerve sails over it right around the halfway mark.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Moira Macdonald

    Unfortunately, the filmmakers — busily splashing the film in crayon-colored light, vaguely sinister pop music and jittery camerawork — forgot to give Vee and Handsome Stranger (his name’s Ian) much personality.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Christopher Gray

    By merely transposing its generic high school clique drama onto an augmented reality platform, Nerve sacrifices most of its novelty, but the filmmakers demonstrate a marginal interest in how this mediated environment warps the perspectives of its characters.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    For all its hints at imminent catastrophe, Nerve feels surprisingly tame.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Emma Roberts and Dave Franco are just fine, but there’s no huge onscreen spark between them. Most of the supporting roles are thinly drawn and forgettable.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    You certainly won't be bored. And if you go into Nerve looking for a thrill ride, you won't be disappointed. If you're hoping for more, that's a different story.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Clint Worthington

    Nerve is refreshing and frustrating in equal measures, mining a genuinely inventive concept for some memorable, Mean Girls-esque pathos about the ways in which the Internet is changing and magnifying social structures for young people today.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Fionnuala Halligan

    For all that it bounces off a lot of contentious issues about children and the internet, where Carrie-style bullying has moved into the unsupervised zone of cyberspace, Nerve frustratingly stops short before eventually falling in on itself in the third act.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Justin Lowe

    Fortunately Schulman and Joost keep the film visually engaging.... All that busyness onscreen distracts somewhat from the impression that Roberts and Franco don't look much like teenagers, although they form a fairly good team as long as they’re pursuing specific challenges rather than sharing their nascent emotions for one another or attempting to unravel the intricacies of the game.
