Rated PG-13 for intense action and violence, thematic material, some language, sexual content and teen drinking.
Three high school students make an incredible discovery, leading to their developing uncanny powers beyond their understanding. Even as they learn to control their abilities and use them to their advantage, their lives start to spin out of control because their darker sides begin to take over.
As a surprise entry in the mid-winter movie doldrums, "Chronicle" is a modest charmer.
Critic Score: 4/5
"Chronicle" is an energetic hodgepodge that tweaks familiar conventions just enough to seem fresh. Forget the X-Men - these are iHeroes.
Critic Score: 3/5
