  • 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
