Review: Chronicle

Three high school friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery. Soon, though, they find their lives spinning out of control and their bond tested as they embrace their darker sides.

Take Superman and mix in Blair Witch Project and you get Chronicle. An interesting story which takes a different twist on Superpowers. For Andrew, Matt and Steve have stumbled upon something beyond their – or anyone’s – understanding. Their discovery leads them to acquire powerful telekinetic abilities; or simply they have superpowers. They’re now capable of, well, almost anything. They can move objects just by thinking about them, crush cars through force of will. They even learn to fly. It feels like a realistic twist on getting superpowers, and the way it is shot gives it that gritty feel. Chronicle is a new film unlike any you’ve seen before, it’s a superhero movie that’s not really a superhero movie.
