Synopsis [B]right, brisk, and enjoyably silly....[NERVE] filters a one-crazy-night scenario through a state-of-the-web address. It’s the most technology-obsessed teen movie since last year’s UNFRIENDED.It feels like existing inside a smartphone, as the actors like, swipe, tap and livestream their way through an online game called Nerve. Audio-visually, it feels like your best night out, veins coursing with adrenaline, heart thumping with sinewy electronic music.3 stars out of 4 -- The film is most effective when it’s portraying the dynamics of its teenaged universe. Screenwriter Jessica Sharzer provides enough space for the actors to flesh out and inhabit their standard teen-movie trope characters, and it’s easy to identify with whatever type you were in high school.Luckily, the pros slightly edge out the cons to make this perils-of-the-dark-web story appealing, and potentially a breakout success for the junior high set.Schulman and Joost keep the film visually engaging by combining characteristics of videogame play, social-media interactivity and web-based video sharing with a heightened style...A high-school wallflower named Vee (Emma Roberts) decides to participate in an online game that involves completing challenges and dares throughout New York City. Although she is initially thrilled by the game's antics -- and the fact that it asks her to partner with a handsome stranger (Dave Franco) for some of the tasks -- the experience eventually escalates into a life-or-death struggle. Juliette Lewis, Kimiko Glenn, and Emily Meade co-star. Directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (CATFISH).
