Film Review: Found-Footage Fanboy Film ‘Chronicle’ is Aimlessly Lost

3 February 2012 9:53 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Chronicle,” which stars blah, blah and blah with a special appearance by blah (you wouldn’t know these unknowns any way), is the latest found-footage film to find itself lost, lacking purpose and devoid of a cohesive plot. This film’s fanboy ejaculate loves you short time as it spews the buildup of what could be interpreted as a “story” and ultimately ends without one.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

We can forgivingly leave to moviemaking mystery how a few kids develop superhero telekinesis from a weakly scripted, inexplicable, underground rock formation from which our story never returns to explore. But we cannot excuse a story that lacks a true protagonist, antagonist and an overall plot in exchange for three kids simply running around aimlessly and experimenting with their newfound power.

Even if you enjoy this special-effects joyride with a cast of new actors you won’t know, you’ll be hard pressed »
