Storyline Heading
Andrew, Matt and Steve have stumbled upon something beyond their - or anyone's - understanding. Their discovery leads them to acquire powerful telekinetic abilities; in graphic novel parlance, they have superpowers. Soon, though, they find their lives spinning out of control and their bond tested as they embrace their darker sides.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Horror Sci-Fi - This is a science fiction film told in the fake documentary "found footage" format. There are no big stars here, and although the film is low budget, there are a fair amount of elaborate special effects. Violence and language make the film too intense for young children, plus there is some objectionable behavior shown by teen characters.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good John Trank's 'Chronicle' grows into an uncommonly entertaining movie that involves elements of a superhero origin story, a science-fic­tion fantasy and a drama...

USA Today Full Review
Good Bolstered by the natural performances of a trio of little-known actors, the very watchable Chronicle keeps us captive throughout.

Washington Post Full Review
Average The characters are introduced so quickly, and their personalities are so thin, that what happens to them has little weight.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 117 moviegoers:
TEENS:GREAT REVIEWS! Both the males and females loved "Chronicle." Equally important is that no one disliked it. This makes your probability of enjoying it very high.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The males especially enjoyed it with most loving it. About two-thirds of the ladies enjoyed "Chronicle," with half loving it. There were quite a few ladies who only rated it as good/average or below average.
ADULTS:These are good, but not quite great reviews. A little better than half the males enjoyed it very much as did three-quarters of the ladies. Unfortunately, a large percentage of the males only rated it as good/average, which is disappointing. A fairly small percentage of the females rated it lower than good/average, which is very disappointing.
