smndvdcl's rating of the film Chronicle

Another sci-fi blockbuster 'found footage' premise that utilises the canon for some pertinent characterisation of 'masculinity in crisis' adolescents (one with hubris worthy of a Greek tragedy). No matter how contrived, its pathos, and the haunting uncanny realism in the depiction of sci-fi elements, takes this noble effort out of the mediocre.
