So, I was not expecting much from this, considering I’m usually not a fan of the whole first person/found footage/shaky cam thing. But you know what? This movie was actually pretty awesome. Yes, it’s found footage, but it’s found footage done well. Which I never thought I would ever say. There are a lot of creative and clever story tricks used in order to get the affect they wanted, and it worked. The only place is fell apart a little was in the big climactic scene, but honestly, I was so focused on the action of the scene, I didn’t realize it until after it was over. The acting is extremely good from this relatively unknown cast. The special effects are also quite impressive, you can actually see how their powers develop. So overall, this is actually way better than you would expect it to be, and I was engaged the entire time.
