Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Mr. Russell and Mr. Jordan are as likable as their characters, but it's Mr. DeHaan who pulls you uneasily in.Manohla Dargis, New York Times, 02.02.2012
Based on Chronicle, it's clear that Trank has the right stuff to move up to big-budget fantasy movies. If he wants to, that is. In a lot of ways, he has already beaten the studios at their game.Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, 02.03.2012
It's a testament to Trank's capable direction that the movie feels so grounded in reality. There is no sense of the magical in the goings-on, even though what the boys are doing defies logic and gravity.Claudia Puig, USA Today, 02.02.2012
With great power comes the responsibility to make a decent movie, but the mysterious force running through "Chronicle" is the power to supersuck.Kyle Smith, New York Post, 02.02.2012
