Andrew Detmer (Dane DeHaan) is a teenager with real problems. His father Richard (Mike Kelly) is a real bastard. He’s just plain mean. Everything bad in this man’s life is going to be taken out on his son. In a effort to fight back, Andrew decides to start filming his day-to-day life. Millions of young people do this everyday on their iPhones, iPads or Flip Cams. NO SPOILERS HERE
Something happens to Andrew and his cousin, Matt Garetty (Alex Russell) and a guy he knows from high school, Steve Montgomery (Michael B. Jordan). As you’ve seen in the Chronicle movie trailer, the trio soon begin having telekinetic ability. At first, this new talent is only used for practical jokes & insane juggling.
Didn’t Marvel’s Stan Lee write, ‘With great power comes great responsibility.’ It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that these accelerating powers, Andrew would soon be going to the Dark Side. There’s a steady build the does indeed have a payoff at the end. There were shots in this film that were so clever and well executed. This is pure Sci-Fi fun.
