Clearly made to kick off a new found-footage franchise, Chronicle is a very clever story about teens who develop unusual powers, mixing everyday reality with some excellent out of this world sci-fi fantasy.

A semi-serious sci-fi romp, lighter and more fun than many of the comic-book movies that it steals from, a superhero movie in which nobody ever crusades, or wears a cape.

Takes itself too seriously and by the end it was hard not to laugh at the Carrie in a cape concept. The problem is that the found footage/hand cam concept does not service the story and the film would have benefitted without it.

A decisão de contar sua história exclusivamente através de câmeras subjetivas, como em vários outros pseudomentários, é ao mesmo tempo sua maior força e sua maior fraqueza.

Chronicle is a thoughtful and empathetic story of three disparate teens who end up with special powers and how it does or does not change them.

even when the film is working, it's hard not to wonder how the in-story videorecording adds to the effect in any appreciable way

Chronicle provides more emotional weight than the typical found-footage movie, and that makes it an enjoyable example of a film that is a cut above its genre roots.

This movie attempts to answer the question, what would happen if an angry person suddenly had the power to impose his will on everyone else? The answer is, things would get very bad very fast.

This isn't a family-friendly superhero flick like Sky High nor is it a costume-clad wish-fulfillment fantasy like Kick-Ass. Instead, it grounds its science fiction in high school fact while taking uncomfortable detours into Columbine territory.

The found footage element keeps geting in the way of a good teenage superhero film.

"Chronicle" is the kind of science fiction that fans of the genre crave. Despite the limitations of the POV format, it rocks. I want more! Paul Chambers, CNN.

This is a nifty, watchable piece of wish-fulfilment entertainment with more than a couple of standout moments.

For much of its study of young supermen never grasping great responsibility, Chronicle offers a sense of how adolescents can become awfully, powerfully alien even to themselves.

It's like "Punk'd" with superpowers.
