This is a very interesting movie. It's not the regular superhero movie where they fly around and everything works out in the end. They really make you feel for the character Andrew, they show you what he's going through and they make you understand why he does what he does, and by the end you really feel for him, and your sad that it had to end that way for him. It doesn't do well in some aspects, like how they try to set up a relationship between two of the characters. But those aspects don't get in the way of the big picture, and that's that Chronicle is a great, entertaining superhero movie. So I recommend it.
This movie manages to set up characters and plot extremely well. You really feel for these characters and want to see them succeed, and when they do, your happy for them. One of the best movies ever made, in my opinion.
