Chronicle tells a story of three high school students who stumble upon some sort of extra-terrestrial anomaly in an underground cave in the woods. After barely escaping a cave-in, they find themselves with psychokinetic abilities. One of the three friends comes from a broken home, where his short-tempered father finds excuses to abuse him. He is pushed too far, and he uses his new found powers in a negative and greedy manner. The story follows the ups and downs of the three friends exploring their new powers and the problems that arise when the arrogance of youth is combined with supernatural gifts.
The movie at times makes you wish you were one of the friends in the movie with these powers- especially when they learn that they can fly! The special effects looked really good, and made you feel like you were part of the action.
Overall the movie was good. The final few minutes are the best, and it's definitely worth taking the time to watch Chronicle. If I had to give it a rating, I would give it a 7 out of a possible 10.
