Chronicle (2012)

black superheroes chronicle Dane DeHaan Michael B. Jordan movie review superhero

Movie description:
Three high school friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery underground. Soon they find their lives spinning out of control and their bond tested as they embrace their darker sides.
My thoughts:
This is a small sleeper type film that I think everyone knew about! I took it as a small budget character study on how a villains can already be among you just waiting for an opportunity to step into their true evil. In this movie it wasn't the big things that stood out to me, it was the small things that spoke volumes!
Chronicle is a slow burn with a beauty payoff that makes sense in it's "real world" take. Even when I saw this in the theater Michael B Jordan was an obvious standout. I had mainly seen Michael B on tv shows (I loved him in the NBC show Parenthood) but his charismatic style of acting made sense on the big screen and I figured this movie would be a big wake up call on his acting chops to viewers as well as movie casting!
