Kevin McCarthy95 - I was literally blown back in my chair by it’s originality.” “Chronicle” is an absolutely incredible, brutally intense, emotionally engaging, original film that will blow your freaking mind. It’s currently 2am and I have to wake up in three hours for work and all I want to do is talk about this film.

CinemaVisitor Erik90 - Excellent sci-fi/superhero movie not just for fans of found-footage movies about 3 friends with super powers. America's answer for Akira?

Dan O'Neill80 - Chronicle isn’t anything ground-breaking or new but the whole found-footage format works in its favor with a smart script, fast-paced vibe, and amazing performances by all three of these young dudes who do have bright futures in Hollywood, but then again, you never know.

Bryan Lienesch79 - Holds it own even in the ubiquitous 'Found Film' genre. A film that sort of came out of nowhere that is definitely worth your time.
