My Review:

Chronicle isn’t your typical superhero movie.  It has a more real life feel as to how people would act if you all of a sudden had powers.  Most superhero movies take place once the person has had their power for a while.  I think most people have wondered if you could have any super power, what would it be and what would you do with it?  This shows exactly that.  This is a story of three teenage boys that are all of a sudden overcome with power and they don’t’ know what to do with it.  They start messing with people and each other.  They run around town seeing how strong they are and how far they can take it.  Power has it’s limits though and as you’ll see in this movie one of the boys starts to cross the line and he has to be stopped.  It was a fun and interesting movie to watch and I’ll probably watch it again when it comes out on DVD.  When a movie keeps you entertained, then I feel that it’s done it’s job.  Go see it, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

My Rating: B+
