Superpowers aren't necessarily a benefit if you don't know how to use them properly, as the three comrades at the heart of this sci-fi tale learn rather quickly.
Dane DeHaan, Alex Russell and Michael B. Jordan play the central trio, which largely uses the "Blair Witch Project"-"Cloverfield" approach of amateur videotaping to show the events as they unfold - and the result is fairly effective in depicting ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. *** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
