Shoestring sci-fi with serious smarts
Independent film’s answer to the comic book movie craze, Chronicle is a no-budget sci-fi that really pushes the boundaries of what found footage films are capable of.
Andrew Detmer (Dane DeHaan) is a superzero who turns into a superhero alongside buddies Matt (Alex Russell) and Steve (Michael B. Jordan) when they discover a strange hole in the ground.
With great power comes great cinema. Compiled entirely from camcorder, CCTV and news footage, Chronicle transcends its gimmicks to emerge as an imaginative, inventive alternative to Marvel and DC.
