There may be spoilers the rest of the review

Verdict: Slow Glossy Thriller

Story: Nerve starts as we meet Vee (Roberts) a high school senior looking to go onto her dream college but for now she has to face staying at home with her mother after their own loss. When her risky friend Sydney (Meade) teaches about a new online game called Nerve which is Truth or Dare minus the Truth we get to see a new risk people are meant to take money.

When Vee gets her heartbroken by her crush she decides to be impulsive and become a player in Nerve. When Vee meets another player Ian (Franco) she finds herself getting caught up in a darker version of the game where she must battle life and death to make a little extra cash.

Nerve is a thriller that starts off simple and calm but soon becomes deadly, well this also ends up playing along the ideas of how far you will go to get extra money. This also plays on the idea that friendships at that age could only be thin and easily broken. When the film is all set and done this feels really long and over glossy to get to where the film wants to go and I would rather be watching the horror version of 13 Sins.

Overall: Over glossy thriller that just doesn’t suck you in like it should.
