Chronicle (2012)

Unique and Exciting Super Hero Film

It take a while to adjust to the found footage style of storytelling, which often cuts mid-scene and plays with unique camera perspectives. The film presents an intriguing perspective on the usual super hero origin story. The scenes where the friends are testing their newfound powers are among the film's best, as the exuberance of discovery that one can fly, move objects telepathically, etc. is captured energetically. The film sometimes bends to super hero cliches (it's difficult to shake all the typical plot points of the genre,) but the insane (and I do mean insane) action-packed finale is a thrill ride reminiscent of Cloverfield (and I loved that movie.)
