Story: Vee, a regular high school introvert, signs up for a high-stakes online game called Nerve. Little does she know that the game is actually playing her.

Review: Are you a Watcher or a Player?

That is the question at the core of Nerve. In the film, it literally means: those who watch the online game and those who play it. But it applies to real life. Are you a risk-taker, a rule-breaker, or do you just sit back and seek entertainment from the life of others?

Vee (Emma Roberts) has always been a watcher, but decides to switch things up after her quiet, back-of-the-class existence is disrupted by a humiliating rejection from the hot football player she crushes on.

She participates in Nerve, an online game where players are given outrageous dares by viewers, in exchange for money. Vee starts out simple: kissing a stranger called Ian (Dave Franco), trying on an expensive dress, getting a tattoo, etc. The watchers love Ian and Vee together, so they form an alliance and go for the kill, without knowing that the game might just kill them.

Nerve is a timely commentary on the scary side of social media. Everything’s fair in the war of getting the most Likes. The near-accurate portrayal of the thirst for popularity in today’s teens is unsettling.

As the movie progresses, the stakes are raised and every dare leaves you with a lump in your throat. Whether these dares are supposed to serve a higher purpose is unclear, but individually, they make for great pitstops in the screenplay.

Emma Roberts (usually seen as the mean girl) makes for a relatable, reclusive teen. Dave Franco is all smiles and charm; you want to go on this dangerous ride with him. The glitch comes in the last 20 minutes, where everyone takes the moral high ground and you end up feeling like pausing the game and getting a snack.

That said, if you’re the kind of person that opens their eyes to Facebook and Twitter every morning, Nerve may be the wake up call you need.
