Completely Original Superhero Film!

Any success yields "flattering imitation" AKA ripoffs. The Pokemon gave birth to Digimon, the Transformers fruited the Go-bots. Star Wars gave us the original Battlestar Galactica and James Bond's Moonraker. X-Men gave us the 4400 and Heroes. But now it appears that the next generation of copycats is beginning to arrive. Push imagines an ordinary world full of people with extraordinary abilities. People with telekenetic, healing, or telepathic abilities. And according to the trailer, it looks like they are being tracked by "The Division" and can even PAINT THE FUTURE. I am almost ashamed to admit it, but in spite of its blatant "inspiration," I will probably end up seeing this one.

What. God, I'll give an film a fair chance, but... what's the point of this film? It's all been done before, many times, and better. :(
