More than just a brainless blockbuster

"I am an Apex Predator. Does the lion feel bad killing the gazelle? Do people feel remorse when they kill a fly?"

Chronicle is yet another addition to the "found footage" subgenre, following on in the tradition of The Blair Witch Project and the Paranormal Activity series whereby movies claim to be authentic footage captured by real people. We've seen horror films and monster movies... read more

A new step in the 'found-footage' sub-genre.

"Yes, it was the black guy this time."

The 'found-footage' sub-genre was popularised when The Blair Witch Project was released way back in 1999. There have been so many found-footage films in the horror genre that they're actually starting to get boring. The thing that's attractive about this sub-genre to many studios is that they cost little to make, yet rake in a lot of profit. On... read more

A different found-footage film.

Over the years, the found-footage genre has consisted of horror films involving mostly monsters and demons with severe consequences, but Chronicle is something that takes you somewhere different to what we’ve seen before from the genre. It adds hilarious laughs and the troublesome behaviour of teenagers but also the vintage style of violence and horror as part of found-footage films. Understanda... read more

" 6/10 See, it's different, 'cause you've always had friends, and people want to talk to you and be around you. I never had any of that. I mean, before this, I barely even hung out with Matt, and he's my cousin. We were close when were little, but- I don't know. In high school, everything changed."

"A different take on the genre. Three teenagers obtain powers from a strange rock that they found in a cave. Instead of stopping crime or saving the world they decide to pull pranks and goof around. All fun has to come to end though. It kinda feels like a live action version of Akira. "

A good movie

“Considering the current hype involving super-heros and this other wave of found-footage features, it was just a matter of time before a smart ass would think of combining the two genres. Fortunately, it turned out to be a pretty good flick, even though it was not as original as the makers would like you to believe. First of all, I always had a weak spot for the found-footage genre , I always been a fan of ‘The Blair Witch Project’, and this type of film-making works very well when used properly which was the case here. Indeed, instead of the glossy look of your average blockbuster, you get something more down-to-earth, more realistic, even documentary-like. I also enjoyed the performances by the three main actors. Since then, both Dane DeHaan and Michael B. Jordan have become quite pop” read more

"13.1 "With great power comes great responsibility". Chronicle might not be a unique take on the old dilemma of superpowers, but it is still a fresh perspective on the subject matter."

"3 young men somehow obtain telekinetic powers and they start to record their use of the powers This is basically a found footage type thing but with a superhero mix - I largely ignore superhero flicks as sci-fi as IMHO they are so borderline for the genre but this is a great film - the story arc is predictable but I like the way the action intensifies to a destructive climax. I also like the way it showed the sheer joy they had when discovering their powers A must-see movie"
