Heroes, also known as Push, is a 2009 American science fiction thriller film directed by Paul McGuigan, starring Camilla Belle, Dakota Fanning, and Chris Evans. The movie is set in Hong Kong and follows a group of people with special abilities, referred to as "pushers," "movers," and "watchers," who are being hunted by a covert government agency known as The Division.

The story begins as Nick Grant (Chris Evans), a "mover," is hiding out in Hong Kong, trying to avoid The Division. He encounters a 13-year-old "watcher" named Cassie Holmes (Dakota Fanning), who is looking for him on behalf of her mother, also a "watcher," who has been captured by The Division. Nick reluctantly agrees to help Cassie find her mother in exchange for help in finding his missing father.

As they search for Cassie's mother, they discover that a powerful "pusher" named Kira Hudson (Camilla Belle) is the key to unlocking a mysterious briefcase that holds immense power. Kira has been institutionalized by The Division, and they must break her out to get the briefcase. Along the way, they team up with other pushers and movers who are also being hunted by The Division, including Nick's ex-girlfriend, a smuggler named Teresa Stowe (played by Asian superstar, Maggie Q).

The film features many action-packed sequences, as the group of pushers and movers fight off The Division's agents and attempt to evade their capture. The special effects are impressive, with the pushers and movers displaying a wide range of abilities, such as telekinesis, mind control, and precognition.

While the action and special effects are certainly impressive, the film's strength lies in its characters. The main protagonist, Nick Grant, is a classic anti-hero with a troubled past, and Chris Evans delivers a solid performance as a man who is forced to confront his own limitations and confront his past demons. Dakota Fanning is also excellent as Cassie, who is wise beyond her years and determined to save her mother. Camilla Belle brings a sense of mystery and danger to her role as Kira, while Maggie Q is a standout in her role as Teresa.

The movie explores themes of government conspiracy, the ethics of using special abilities for personal gain, and the power of belief in oneself. It also delves into the complex relationships between the various pushers and movers, who must learn to trust one another and work together to overcome the obstacles in their path.

Overall, Heroes (Push) is an engaging and action-packed film that offers thrills, suspense, and a thought-provoking plot. The performances are strong, and the special effects are impressive, making for an enjoyable cinematic experience.
