    It still baffles me that they wanted this to be like Chronicle so much that they fired Max Landis after his draft wasn't enough like Chronicle. The try-hard nature of this reboot is mostly a weakness, but it's also its saving grace - the film takes too long to get to the stuff we're all there to see, but it is still probably better than it needs to be.
