With the superpowers they have and the situation they were put in (good vs. evil); I expected A LOT more from this movie than what I got. It was a very weak and shallow movie, as I felt I barely watched anything by the end. Great plot, terrible execution.

I am sick of "found footage" style movies. I have a few that i really like, but this is not one of them. Would have been better as a standard movie. A cool concept that was paced well, surprisingly well directed and written. Can't wait to see the next flickk these guys do.

Was happily surprised

When i saw the original trailer for this film i thought the concept looked cool enough. You have three highschool kids who accidentally stumble upon a meteroite of some form. Cool as that is it gets much cooler as they all discover they now possess super powers mostly of the telekinetic variety. So i threw my money down and purchased the dvd upon its release and damn!!!! What i did not expect to get in return was one hell of a movie! Definatly without a shadow of a doubt one of the best movies i have seen in 2012 so far! Loved the storyline, loved the relative cast of unknowns, also loved as its filmed 'Blair Witch' style without the vomit inducing shakiness which after reading alot of reviews for this film seems to be a problem...I think it added the reality to it!!

Upon it's the...

knocked my socks off

There are two kind of movies. One that will totally entertain with a stale plot and another with a strong plot and deep writing. Chronicle will settle for the second choice. It is nicely poised with a technical script and has some gritty characters to care. Trank's chronicle is neatly merged with lots of video footages and powerful performances.

The plot is about three youngsters who come in contact with radiation. They get supernatural powers and start using them with rules. Dane De haan(Andrew) does not play with rules and things go beyond control and it costs life of his best friend Jordan (Steve). His cousin max warns him but eveything goes berserk.

Landis's writing is good. The elements and playful nature of youth is nicely shown. The main plot lacked clarity and should have ...

Enjoyable, but do not expect much

The premise was promising, but execution wasn't that good. What would teenagers do with superpowers they suddenly acquired? According to the director of this film, nothing really -- they were mostly obnoxious to the others, constantly doing pranks, giggling and talking nonsense, but I guess, that would be pretty accurate description of today's average teenagers. If you remove the supernatural part of the movie plot, you actually get standard teen drama, covering issues like bullying, domestic abuse and poverty reflecting on an ability to solve your own family health and other problems. That sounds like cliche, well, it is, but might even worked here had they really applied the supernatural elements of the story in a good way. But we haven't seen that - the characters treated their newly a...
