LRA writes: Chronicle is a movie that given it's two principal hooks should not have worked at all. While we are still in the middle (or possible tail end) of the golden age of super hero movies, one cannot deny that the current over saturation of the market is starting to become a little stale. Sure that is mostly a case by case scenario but regardless, unless your super hero movie is either wrapping up a trilogy or features a beloved character it takes more than just another origin story to make it work. Then you have the found footage format which I have bitched about countless times before for drawing way too much attention away from the underlining story when we should be focused on the film at hand and not so much with how it was filmed. So with Chronicle being both yet another super hero origin story (one featuring unknown super heroes at that) and a found footage movie the odds were greatly stacked against it. Low and behold the power of great filmmaking for Chronicle has beaten the odds by taking two negatives and forging them into a spectacular positive.
