Bottom Line: Despite its formulaic, broken record philosophy of (all together now) with great power comes great responsibility – this 83-minute, low budget, ‘found footage’ BLAIR WITCH PROJECT meets HEROES hybrid does a fairly solid job of keeping things exploratorily engaging and energetically paced. It’s not without its flaws, but if you’re a fan of the people-with-special-powers genre then you might want to give this one a look…otherwise, it won’t be so super.

Starring: Michael B. Jordan, Alex Russell and Dane DeHaan
Directed by: Josh Trank
Rated: PG-13
Running time: 83 minutes
Story: Three high school students make an incredible discovery, leading to them developing uncanny powers beyond their understanding. As they learn to control their abilities, and use them to their advantage, their lives start to spin out of control, and their darker sides begin to take over. (20th Century Fox)

Like better than you did even with excessive finale. It just felt fresh, and in terms of characters, with the exception of The Hulk, more interesting than The Avengers.
