WHAT WAS GOOD?
For the most part Chronicle was an interesting little movie, that added a new facet to the age old material of an ordinary youngster receiving super powers. The use of a handheld video camera (think Cloverfield, Paranormal Activity etc) for the most part worked well and when the teens unleashed their super powers it was a genuine treat. The final act, with its dramatic showdown, was a particular highlight, especially when buildings got smashed up and the real the real shit hit the fan!
WHAT WAS BAD?
If the film had any downfalls it was in the fact that events unfolded exactly as you would have expected, which left very little room for any additional twists. It was a shame as it would have really helped Chronicle make its mark, but regardless of that it was still worth a watch.
