Chronicle is a superhero movie with a difference.

When three high-school friends gain telekinetic powers, they don't bother putting on costumes and fighting crime. Instead, they video themselves mucking around. The Blair Witch/Cloverfield "found footage" approach is refreshing, and yet, despite the film's grungy intimacy, the thunderous climactic battle is as spectacular as anything in Avengers Assemble.
