Many people think of movies with superpowers as cheesy or shallow, but I doubt they would think the same about CHRONICLE. The story starts by focusing on Andrew Detmar, a high school boy who gets bullied a lot and has a weak personality. While attending a party, Andrew and two of his friends acquire superpowers and then the actual movie starts from there. The story takes twists and turns into deep issues within the frame of supernatural powers.



CHRONICLE is a great film that takes the genre of characters with superpowers into a more dramatic direction with emphasis on the characters’ development and the interaction between them. If you want to watch as a flick movie it would work, and if you want to read much into it then that would work even better.
