A bit different,
This review is from: Chronicle: Extended Edition (Blu-ray) [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Chronicle is one of the few superhero films to break the mould in recent years, the others (Kick Ass, Super) have been comedies. This one goes for an element of realism with genuine rounded characters some of whom cope well with their new found super power and others who don't. The plot builds nicely because the three leads all have their own issues to deal with at home like any normal people, but one kid's problems and emotional immaturity make him a liability. Although from there the film has a degree of formula to it, it's still has enough to make it stand out from other films of the genre. And that makes it worth a watch.
