Are You a Watcher or a Player?

Nerve is the kind of movie that hooked me from the start. I was curious when I first saw the trailer on YouTube. Even though the trailer sort of gives a lot of dares and plot details away. Still I was intrigued by the premise of an online truth or dare style game (minus the truth). Nerve is actually the first movie I went to see by myself in over 3 years. Even though my last viewing experience was bad, I was just too curious not to see the movie. One of my secret obsessions is prank videos. So this was the movie for me. Nerve centers on a teenage girl named Vee. Her friends try to convince her to come out of her shell by participating in an online game called Nerve. In the “game” people have a choice between Watcher or Player. Watchers give people dares. While Players have to do the dares no matter how stupid, embarrassing, or dangerous they are. In exchange for large amounts of money. One of the best things about Nerve is its color palette. It’s filled with stellar neon pinks, greens, and blues. Another positive is the chemistry between Emma Roberts and Dave Franco. As well as the teen humor and building tension near the end. I loved the movie so much that I read the very different book afterwards. All I ask now is for you to watch Nerve and judge it for yourself. Do you accept the challenge?
