Thomas' Review of Chronicle

5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


Chronicle is a cautionary tale of what happens when power falls into the hands of those who cannot handle it.

When three teens discover a mysterious object that grants them telekinetic powers, the fun to dangerous curve swings as their level of prowess grows.

Andrew, outcast and abused is a powder keg waiting to explode. Matt, handsome and intellectual is the voice of reason. Steve, charismatic class president is the cool kid who is not afraid to include friends from other circles of life.

The story is told mostly from the point of view of Andrews hand held camera. Honestly though I think the story would of been better served without this modern realism troupe. The plot elements of Chronicle are fairly easy to predict, I wasn't surprised by anything in the plots progression. However that being said I was entertained throughout.

In the end we get a rumble that trashes a large portion of Seattle and only one telekinetic will be left standing.

Where is Professor X when you need him?
