The Chronicles: Movie Review

When I saw this movie in the theaters last month I was expecting to be a superhero movie…Well somewhat?  but then I notices that it was going a first person view experience, like the Blair Witch Project or the Paranormal Activity Series,  but this movie in the other hand doesn’t portray itself as a horror but more as thriller in a sense.  I have to say it was enjoyable to watch because of the story but the movie itself had first person view about 100% of the time! I only wish that the movie was better if it didn’t had anything involving a kid holding the camera all the time,  because the through out the film the main character had the camera for the most part and of course it was involving around three high school kids,  the movie was telling origin story for the  most part it did.  when it comes to movies like this one I know one thing I am going to point out on about camera in this film the way I feel that this movie has been direct from the actor than the director itself and this story is nothing original just to tell that it isn’t since there has been movie that tell similar story with someone that telepathic powers then again the begin didn’t start off like that with three kids with super powers.  the begin it was about a kid that use his parents money to buy an expertise camcorder that he wanted to document footage involving his life around him,  So his first footage was him recording something to himself and than took more footage film around his school. I felt was introduction was quick and done it went on telling who’s who and what are dose character are.   The first scene in the was in school and then after that it was in a party were he desides to bring the camcorder with and documents the party.  After he steps out of the party with everything he was going thur the harsh parting, he goes off with his cousin and Michael B. Jordan ( I don’t know the name of the character I think his name was…Steve I think).  Goes on and discovers a rock under this hole and the three kids feels a strange vibe coming from the hole and goes under hole and discovers a blue glowing rock.  One of the guys goes and touch the rock and starts bleeding from their noses.  If I were them I stay the fuck away from the rock as possible…And that right there is end of day one.  And day after day,  The three days feels a strange power and discovers they all have telepathic power which came from the rock last night.  then finally later on through the movie they start messing around with their powers which you can say it’s just all fun and games until they get in trouble untill these kids starts to use it for evil and don’t take responsibly for there actions.  Which in this case in the movie you know that dose powers that they use is going effect the outcome later ends one of the characters. I do have to give effect to this movie having a good story but doesn’t even make me like this movie even more.  I can tell you that this movie could have told a story of the movie,  if it didn’t had a blog style like film.  After I finish watch this…I can that this film have gotten a lot reaction from fans they’re wanting more out of the flim.  If you’re one of them that watched this movie last month during the release and liked it…You know your going to want more.   the reason I can tell you why I didn’t like it because the main guy with the camcorder for the most part becomes an evil and destructive,  Only reason he becomes like that is his experience he had with in a party, right off you know that a bad experience being around with others and ends up being alone.  What had happens later after his experience in the party,  He gets out of control killing his friend during a thunderstorm.  (Michael B. Jordan) and then start off robbing a gas station and kills more people he sees that’s what I didn’t like about it,  so the ending felt disappointed for the most part.

But just safe you from spoiling the movie could have been better if it was filmed by regular film taking,   The movie itself filmed to be someone blogs with some special added to it like if it was done by a fifteen year old kid.  over all some will enjoy this film and others won’t.  I say just check it out because its still out in theaters…If don’t want to put money in the theater,  then you’re better off renting it than anything else.  .
