When Steve rescues the trucker, his wet, skintight blue shirt begins to resemble a [[Film/FantasticFour2015 Fantastic Four uniform]].uniform]].
** Seeing Andrew suffer at the hands of his dad and hang out with his superpowered friends is especially funny since Dane [=DeHaan=] is playing Harry Osborn in the ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2''. More hilarious is seeing him destroy a spider with his power. Also HarsherInHindsight - we also see Andrew grow a taste for beating the crap out of his best friends and generally growing more insane by the day, partially thanks to his violent father.

** Richard berating Andrew while [[spoiler: he was in the hospital]]. If he was so sure his yelling was going to wake him up, [[BullyingADragon he'd know not to screw with]] somebody who earlier in the film effortlessly threw him across the room. Also he's yelling at Andrew while being recorded by a police camera and with the hospital door wide open so anyone could've heard him.

* HarsherInHindsight: Andrew's downfall seems eerily prophetic of Josh Trank's CreatorBreakdown during the development of ''Film/FantasticFour2015.'' Things started off good for him with the success of ''Chronicle'', but his [[PrimaDonnaDirector on-set behavior]] (which was allegedly caused by ExecutiveMeddling) [[RoleEndingMisdemeanor costing him his role as director of a]] ''Franchise/StarWars'' spin-off film, and the film's overall reception and [[BoxOfficeBomb box office numbers]] have made the film a potential CreatorKiller for him. Trank's behavior even apparently goes back to the production of this film itself, possibly similar to how constantly abusive Richard was from the beginning.

And similar to Richard, Trank began having problems with alcohol.

Added DiffLines:

** As the film went on, [[spoiler: Andrew. Although with Andrew, the 'Jerkass' trope could be due to how much SanitySlippage he endured due to his father's abuse, the stress of his mother's illness, and of course the HopeSpot he lost]].


Added DiffLines:

** Richard's also very disliked, although it's obvious he's a deliberate HateSink.

* WhatAnIdiot: While the found-footage aspect is important to the narrative and going for a more "realistic" superhero movie, there's [[IdiotBall a noticeable logical disconnect]] [[GameplayAndStorySegregation in terms of how it would work within the story]] - particularly, in regards to what Andrew does after he nears the end of the ProtagonistJourneyToVillain. The biggest offenders would have to be when he films himself assaulting people and ''robbing a convenience store'', both of which would net him a few months (or years) in juvenile detention at the least.
