  • Despite a gimmicky premise, Chronicle fuels its action with characters you can laugh with, understand and even take to heart. show more

  • If the characters weren't so well drawn, if the effects weren't so convincing, and if the upshot weren't so ghastly, the moral component wouldn't carry any weight. But Trank tells his tale with an emotional and visual crispness that gives the superhero genre its best crack at naturalism so far. show more

  • Bolstered by the natural performances of a trio of little-known actors, the very watchable Chronicle keeps us captive throughout. show more

    fairly good movie night movie redbox with friends. id hate to spend money to see this in a theater. Also the ending of the movie was extreamly abrupt and i feel that they could have done it better.

    This has to be one of the worst movies of all time. Maybe it is my age because once upon a time ago I actually liked this sort of movie-- one told from the perspective of a camera that the characters are using. If you haven\'t guessed, I\'m talking about The Blair Witch Project; this was nothing like that. The story line was ridiculous. It got so boring that I turned it off with a half hour left to go. I\'m sure I missed nothing exciting (probably saw it all in the trailer).
