Chronicle Movie Review

Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:CNN-IBN

What would you do if you discovered you’d suddenly acquired Magneto-like powers that allowed you to control things with your mind…to move objects around without lifting a finger, to crush a car by simply willing it, to fly in the air even?

I’m going with three-and-a-half out of five; you won’t be bored for a minute.

What happens when there are no buttons left to press? That leads you straight up, up, in the sky, above the clouds, where everything you’ve known is below. And the only thing left is you. And, of course, The Thing.
