OVERRATED: 'Chronicle' (2012)

It's a testament to the diminished expectations of spring that this teen-angst superhero movie received such positive reviews on its release. Maybe it looks better on the big screen, but watching this film at home, the special effects are underwhelming, the other two young leads fade in comparison to criminally underused costar Michael B. Jordan ("Friday Night Lights") and the film's gimmicky found-footage conceit just feels unnecessary
