Excerpt: There are two kind of movies. One that will totally entertain with a stale plot and another with a strong plot and deep writing. Chronicle will settle for the second choice. It is nicely poised with a technical script and has some gritty characters to care. Trank's chronicle is neatly merged with lots of video footages and powerful performances. The plot is about three youngsters who come in contact with radiation.
Summary: Here's one less irritating 'found footage' movie. It makes clever use of the format and there is absolutely no 'shaky cam'. Though, it really wasn't necessary and holds back the story from developing into something greater. It's still an entertaining take on the superhero genre that offers up a new experience.
