    For those who haven't watched - it's surprisingly good.

    This comment from IMDB sums it up for me;
    Three high school friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery. Soon, though, they find their lives spinning out of control and their bond tested as they embrace their darker sides.

    I went to an early screening of this movie in Europe while on a trip. I went into the cinema expecting an average movie with average acting and an average script. BOY WAS I SURPRISED! Not only did this movie deliver (and boy did it ever!) but it exiled in all of those fields above! Amazing effects and ideas. The fact that the main character could hold the camera up with his powers made it very smooth and provided a lot of camera angles that you wouldn't normally see in a found footage film. I really hope this becomes a major franchise. If you want to see a good movie and have a great time then by all means, go see this film.

    I've been interested in the film since seeing the adverts but struggled to work out whether it will be good or not because adverts can be deceptive.
    It sounds amazing, will definitely be going to see it soon

    The trailer makes it look pretty bad, but all reviews say it's good.

    Lol, they probably spent more on all the stupid stunts than on the actual film. xD

    I just hope it's not a massive let down as I assume it's similar to Jumper/Push?

    Very compelling I thought. Dame DeHaan is fantastic, and the last half hour is absolutely thrilling. Would highly recommend it, some light hearted moments in the early parts too- *spoiler* Like when they are in the shop and tricking everyone

    The trailer doesn't do it justice. I thought it'd be an average film at best, but was surprised to see otherwise.

    It's got good stunts/effects coupled with a good story and an excellent cast - something of a rarity these days.

    I really enjoyed Chronicle. Not the best film I've ever seen but one of my favourite super power films.

    The only criticism I have is the fact that it's a found footage film, it really didn't need to be in my view. The found footage technique is wearing a bit thin with me after this and Troll Hunter. There are too many scenes that feel forced which breaks my engagement.

    They've just confirmed that they will be making a Chronicle 2.. i hope they use a new set of kids and don't try to continue the original story.

    I didn't expect much from this film but I saw it tonight and actually really enjoyed it! The trailer made it look pretty crap, I almost didn't bother going. It was pretty short though!

    I expect them to do a second one about Matt trying to find out about why they got superpowers, though I hope they don't, something I liked about the film was that it didn't spend ages trying to make up reasons for the superpowers. I hope they don't bring in aliens...

    Really enjoyed it. Skeptical after seeing the trailer but thought it was pretty decent, especially towards the end.

    It's absolutely top shelf, especially impressive given it's budget, the piece of second hand dog**** that was Prometheus seemed even worse in comparison (I watched them on the same day).

    My fav movie of 2012 until Avengers and Spidey came out.

    However, I think The Hobbit will reign supreme over everything later in the year!

    It was good until the end. Got stupid after that.
