* 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 CareerKiller 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.

* 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.

* HilariousInHindsight:
** When Steve rescues the trucker, his wet, skintight blue shirt begins to resemble a [[Film/FantasticFour2015 Fantastic Four uniform]].

Added DiffLines:

** Richard berating Andrew while [[spoiler: he was in the hospital]]. If he was so sure his yelling was going to wake him up, he'd know not to screw with somebody who earlier in the film effortlessly threw him across the room.

** 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.

** This may be justified in that, as the movie progresses, Andrew spends less time consciously directing the TK movement of his camera(s) when alone. It seems that he is unconsciously controlling it, like Matt's forcefields. This leads him to unthinkingly take it with him when he kills the bullies and robs the convenience store.

* MoralEventHorizon: Richard crosses it when he [[spoiler:blames a comatose Andrew for Andrew's mom's death. He even tries to punch him while he was still in a coma. That is if there is any doubt that he did it by abusing and emotionally destroying Andrew in the first place.]]
** Andrew himself is a more complicated example. [[spoiler: He could be said to have crossed it when he caused that car-crash that left the driver at best hospitalised and at worst dead, but he is so broken and emotionally damaged that it is hard to lose all sympathy for him.]]
** The hoodlums who assaulted and beaten Andrew were cruel enough, that [[spoiler:their deaths didn't feel as particularly sad.]]
