** From the POV of an innocent bystander a fight between two super powered beings the battle between Matt and Andrew isn't glorious. It's outright terrifying.

It's outright terrifying.terrifying as the civilians spend the majority of the battle running for their lives while Andrew came dangerously close in leveling an entire city.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Matt kills Andrew before he can cause any more damage, but several people have been killed, including Steve, and we are left with the lingering sense that Andrew's downfall could have been prevented.]]

* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Type 2. Despite having magic powers that ''far'' exceed anything that could be done with a trick and a good imagination for them, Andrew is so put upon he doesn't try to use his powers for more than petty solutions. It would be a different movie if he chose to get media attention for the "fame and money" angle rather than "talent shows and street crime."

** In the climax, [[spoiler: Andrew may now be completely unhinged and is about to drop his father to his death from the hospital bulding, but he still manages to throw this trope back at him by essentially saying that it was his constant abuse that indirectly led to many of the movie's events, and had ultimately drove him off the deep end]].

** A few scenes later, Andrew is filming at the party and the camera is on a hot girl dancing. The girl's boyfriend comes over and gets angry that Andrew seems to be filming his girlfriend. Andrew tries to reply that he wasn't filming her.

* NotWhatItLooksLike: Near the beginning of the film, Andrew has his camera out while eating lunch and it is pointed at the cheerleaders while they are practicing. One of the cheerleaders comes to Andrew and tells him not to videotape them because it is creepy. Andrew's reaction is all but saying this trope.

* SuperHero: The question of whether ''Chronicle'' is a superhero movie or not is approaching InternetBackdraft levels. Despite the [[NotUsingTheZWord word "superhero" or "superpowers" never being mentioned]], the way the boys gain their power is heavily reminiscent of MarvelComics classics (particularly Franchise/SpiderMan and the ComicBook/FantasticFour), and the further dynamic of the film, particularly the third act, cements this impression. On the other hand, writer Max Landis has appeared a bit disconcerted by the label being applied, stating that, by the standards applied to ''Chronicle'', ''{{Carrie}}'' and ''Film/{{Firestarter}}'' would be considered superhero movies if they came out today.

* CaliforniaDoubling: [[UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica Cape Town]] for UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}}.



* MissingTrailerScene: A couple of scenes that appear in the trailers did not show up in the theatrical version, though they are restored in the extended cut.



* NotUsingTheZWord: The kids never compare themselves to, say, [[{{Spiderman}} Peter Parker]] or the ComicBook/FantasticFour, and no one uses the words "superpower" or "superhero", as if comic books simply don't exist in this universe. [[FridgeBrilliance Considering]] the boys have to look up "telekinesis" in the dictionary before they can put a name on "the thing we can do where we move stuff with our minds", this could be the case.
