Review of Chronicle

3 teenagers somehow get themselves in contact with a mysterious substance which gives them super power and then the movie is about what they do and how they do things with it.

Ok so first off, this movie has a great pace in the first half in fact I was right into this movie within minutes it started. I loved how they introduced these characters and the great help I guess they had was that no character was out of this world so we as an audience could instantly grab ok yeah so this teen is like this and that one must be that and it doesn't annoy you at all. It has a charm into it and you somehow enjoy it. I won't be surprised if you sing price tag with Matt in the car because I did.

So then in series of events, our very troubled Andrew, his cousin Matt meet Steve who is very popular, intelligent and super smart kid and they venture into a cave which has this mysterious substance in it.
We then find out that these guys now have super powers. Now typically this is the point where the movie could go Awesome or another movie in a line of tons of not-so-good-not-so-bad movies list on similar super power topics and as much as I hate to say it the movie felt little short at certain things.

This is the time in the movie to know trio's dynamics because we have 3 very different individuals and since its modern time, the movie could go in the direction of them not copying movie mistakes and the teenagers telling each other what should not be done and Matt actually did that but it could have been better than that. We have a good length of movie time in which they are trying stuff with their powers but at one point as an audience I wanted them to do something grand with the powers and get out of individual level which it doesn't do, and we then end up a drama which you don't know why is happening esp why Andrew is believing in his father's words when he hates him with all his being. I don't know and this never gets answered.

Anyways this is a modern movie with a great pacing, great storytelling and has a great beginning a good middle but very cliched end which disappointed me so I gave it a 6. Sorry but I hate to know movie endings before they actually happen in the movie. :(

So should you watch it:
Yes, if you are looking for a movie to watch with your friends in hostel and enjoy because it's a good time pass movie.
No, if you like to watch movies which comes in ______ 100 best movies.
