Chronicle (B)

For around a week now, I've been struggling to successfully write a full scale review for the new found-footage/superhero/character drama Chronicle, so this mini-review will have to do for the time being. Take this as a Film Crazy edition of the"6 Second Review" series:

By focusing more on character development rather than traditional conventions of both the found footage and superhero genres, first time director Josh Trank has constructed a fine visually unique supernatural thriller. Up until it's throughly predictable and mildly repetitive conclusion, this could've been the perfect bookmark to signify the high point of the found footage cinematic fad. Despite the disappointing conclusion, Chronicle bucks any negative expectations given toward its genre cousins, and should be sought out.

(This review will most likely be updated in the upcoming days)
