Seth Farmer's rating of the film Chronicle

This film was a breath of fresh air. Sci-fi films are trending towards smarter, more efficient uses of special effects with an emphasis on premise rather than flashy light shows. Chronicle is only the latest in this new breed of films. The nod to Akira, with Andrew draped in a hospital gown for the film's climax, was most appreciated.
