Chronicle (Includes Digital Copy)
  • Description

    After making an incredible discovery, three high-school students stumble upon super-human powers and their lives are changed forever in 'Chronicle', a supernatural thriller from aspiring first-time director Josh Trank and co-writer Max Landis.

    Cleverly shot from a first-person point-of-view, Andrew (Dane DeHaan) - an unhappy teenager who is both abused by his father and bullied at school - decides to film his 'mundane' life. After climbing down a mysterious hole in the forest and discovering a glowing Kryptonite-like object, Andrew, Andrew's Cousin Matt (Alex Russell), and high-school overachiever Steve (Michael B. Jordan) begin to realise they have gained telekinetic powers.

    Beginning with minor hi-jinks, the boys' powers soon grow stronger and Andrew finds himself battling with his dark side; breaking the law, endangering lives, and recklessly abusing his superiority. The boys' friendship is strained as the story begins to build towards a thrillingly unpredictable and truly epic finale.

    This essential leftfield movie experience really has to be seen to be believed! (John Minard)

Chronicle

Chronicle is a highly enjoyable movie with some great acting performances. It's shot in a portable movie camera style with believable special effects. This is a must see movie!

Unexpected movie

If you expect a typical heroes movie, you will be disappointed. And if you expect a typical teenager movies, you will be even more disappointed! Great plot and performance, a nice story to watch.

Superman Reality TV

The one word review on the front of the Blu Ray box says it all: "...Exhilarating!". There you go. Now watch it. Still here? Okay then - POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD but I will try to keep them vague. The premise of Chronicle is that 3 teenagers receive super powers, by virtue of discovering a mysterious object underground. The whole film could be classed as a "found footage" film as every camera is a "real" in world camera. One of the protagonists is our first window onto the world (a morose teenager with difficulties at home who decides he is "filming everything now"), with other film enthusiasts providing alternative angles and wider narrative options as the film progresses. It's a slightly unrealistic conceit that people would constantly film their lives with cumbersome cameras but once you get past this, it does help give you a Reality TV or Found Footage style grounding (a la Blair Witch, Cloverfield). And in fact once the events of the film become more fantastical, the understandable desire to want to record these bizarre powers and discoveries makes sense. So our 3 protagonists discover, after an encounter with a glowing crystal they find underground (possibly crashed?) that they are developing super powers. They are boys with very different personalities (Andrew, initially the focus of the film - the aforementioned morose teenager, Matt his super cool drop-out-of-school cousin and Steve the charismatic class president and wannabe future politician). And these personalities seem to dictate the avenues down which their abilities evolve. They discover that "like a muscle", if they keep working on their powers, they increase in scope and effect. Though heavy usage by any of them leads to nosebleeds in themselves (and possibly in the others?). After weeks of trial and error, Steve summons the other boys to an unpopulated site to show them his latest discovery. He can fly. This leads to perhaps the most EXHILARATING portion of the film. We all have those dreams about flying. This film is sufficiently grounded in a kind of reality to allow you to accept the boys' powers, from initial mild telekinesis to eventual flight and beyond. This means that when they leap up, float unsuspended, and film themselves cavorting in the clouds, you feel it too. It is breathtaking. They also handle the realities of high altitude flight, at least as far as wearing warm clothes - no spandex or external y-fronts here! From here, the consequences of power are played out, leading to arrogance, attempted domination, terror, hubris. The reality of a teenage Superman. With great power comes the great amplification of all your faults as you are able to inscribe your will upon a suddenly much weaker world. The film is no Oscar winner. But it is an excellent way to see the consequences of all those childhood fantasies we all had. Except in mine I had a big red cape as well.
