How would you handle yourself if you suddenly gain a superpower? Would you use it for good, or for evil? That's the jist of the story in the movie 'Chronicle,' as three teens try to figure out how to use the powers they're given (flight, telekinesis and invunerability). Together, Matt Garetty (Alex Russell), Steve Montgomery (Michael B. Jordan) and Andrew Detmer (Dane DeHaan) try to figure out what they can do - and what they can and can't do with the powers they're given.If you're interested in other great movie quotes, check out these lists for the best lines from 'Super 8,' 'The Woman in Black,' 'The Muppets,' 'Hugo,' 'Arthur Christmas,' 'Immortals,' 'Moneyball,' 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon', 'X-Men: First Class,' 'Cowboys & Aliens' 'Jack and Jill,' 'Happy Feet Two,' 'Tower Heist,' 'The Rum Diary,' and 'Captain America: The First Avenger.'
Get the Gum
Once the guys realize they have special powers, pranks and hilarity ensue. They start out videotaping their antics for fun. Pulling gum out of someone's mouth and making a teddy bear in a toy store levitate (and scaring the heck out of a little girl) seems harmless - but things take a dark turn, eventually.
Matt Garetty: "Are we rolling? I'm going to get the gum, pull it right out of his mouth."
Steve Montgomery (laughing): "Why are we running?"
The Black Guy
Moving a woman's car in a parking lot is just one example of the things these guys can do. Steve has no problem displacing the lady's vehicle - and once again, everything is caught on tape.
Steve Montgomery: "Yes, it was the black guy this time..."
Nothing Stopping Us
Having superpowers gives the trio a feeling that they're totally invincible, but are they? Andrew, in particular, is becoming consumed with power.
Andrew Detmer: "There's nothing stopping us."
When Matt, Steve and Andrew head into a remote area in the woods, they find something they can't explain. After investigating, the teens somehow come out with incredible superpowers. The whole thing, and the events that follow, are captured on film.
Steve Montgomery: "Matt, look at this!!"
