A pretty unheard movie with no A-listers on its credits list, ‘Chronicle’ is a blend of Hollywood`s tried and tested formulas and genres. But director Josh Trank has given the story his own original and compelling spin. The story and events in the film will immediately bring to mind some impressive moments from classic movies and comic books, but these are merged so perfectly.It is an intimate story of two cousins Andrew Detmer (Dane DeHaan) and Matt (Alex Russell) and their best friend Steve (Michael B. Jordan). The plot begins with Andrew starting up his new camcorder to document his troubled upbringing. It thereby also establishes excuse for the camera`s presence in every scene. That also explains those wobbly and weird angles and as a result the film oscillates from the normal narration to the first person perspective with the use of a personal camera with grace. The story becomes interesting when Matt and Steve find a mysterious tunnel while attending a high school party in the woods. They bring Andrew along with his camera to document their exploration. The trio make their way down into the cave and come across a mystifying discovery. They also start experiencing telekinetic powers.
