Chronicle 2012 at Cathay Cineplex, E@curve


"A found footage type of film, a first person point of view of how things would really be , watch as 3 teens battle out to truly figure out what they should do with their new found "talents" "

Michael B. Jordan, Michael Kelly and Alex Russell plays the said teenagers who stumbled upon something that gave them abilities beyond imaginations. 

It's easy, what they were being was just boys acting like boys, from the way they talk and the things they see and react, are just like how boys would act, easily relatable and convincing.

Watch as the story unfolds from the thrill of getting super powers into the real truth of the famous quote " with great powers comes great responsibilities."

The subject in question, "what would you do , if it was YOU?"

Another one for the found footage style, but there was a slight difference with it. It was take with many camera angles which gave a reason for the film to capture certain angles that would not be possible with just a hand help divide.

Much like the Tv series "cops" in which cameras were attached and turned on to cover the stories of cop chasing

The film itself at certain point made me think " how would i react in those situations" but den i answered again, I am not that stupid.

There were scenes that were pretty much predictable and some that did not make sense at all.

As much as the story was suppose to focus on the consequences that you will face for gaining super abilities, I just couldn't relate to the characters and certainly did not feel empathy for them.

There are many other things that I could bash the film with, but then it was a low budget and un promoted film, it does have certain points that were enjoyable.

Heads were way too big for comfort.

Wrapping it up:
Watch it with a friend, have a chat, what would YOU do if you have similar experiences? Ones morality is always questioned in movies such as this. Again, you wouldn't have went to watch it if nobody talked about it right? Need something fresh yet dark at the same time? Check it out.

Rating: 2/5

Watchable rating: 2.5/5

Critic Mode:

" The story was actually quite cliche, like many other superhero flicks, except this time, the camera angles are faced differently and it's not about the battle of good and evil, it wasn't about the race to save earth. It was something else".benjaminfoo of

This movie was watched at Cathay Cineplex Hall 2 thanks to Nuffnang and 20th Century Fox.
