Movie Review: "Chronicle"



Chronicle is what happens when you update Carrie for this generation (and actually make it better in my humble opinion).

It stars some no-name actors (to me at least): Alex Russell, Dane DeHaan, and Michael B. Jordan, whose exploits we follow via their camera footage, before and after they gain telekinesis.

















For a movie based on such a fantastical premise... this movie is pretty damn believable. It has interesting characters, and their evolution is quite engaging and entertaining.

I say it's definitely WATCHABLE.

QBF Rating: 3.5/5

PS: Somehow the older I get, the more I identify with the Mutant Registration Act from the X-Men, as stories like this highlight the dangers of unstable persons with super-powers. Granted that's not an issue in the real world, but still...

When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
