Trying to hit a ‘Nerve’

Players of the game Nerve are subject to real-life dares put forth by the watchers of the same game. Though seemingly amusing, the film poses to be a far-fetched attempt at representing the influence of anonymous identities over the Internet on reality. Yet it remains questionable that the public would be transfixed by such a high-risk game. With little character depth and a rushed all-too-well-calculated ending, it can be said that the incredible smile of Dave Franco, the lead actor, and the monotonous stacks of adrenaline rush still make the film watchable, maybe?
