Jordan , and Alex Russell as a group of friends who gain powerful superhuman abilities and use them for mischief and personal gain until one of them begins to use their powers for darker purposes. The film was released on February 1, 2012 in the United Kingdom and Ireland and was released in the United States on February 3, 2012. It received positive reviews from critics.

Andrew ( Dane DeHaan ) is a high school teenager who starts to videotape his life on a camera he recently purchased. At home, he's bullied by an abusive and alcoholic father, who is bitter about a firefighting injury that forced him to retire and the fact that Andrew's mother is dying from cancer. At school, he's bullied by fellow classmates.

One night, Andrew and his cousin, Matt (Alex Russell) attend a local rave located in a converted farm barn. Matt unsuccessfully attempts to chat up with Casey ( Ashley Hinshaw ), a fellow student, who is filming the rave for her internet blog. Meanwhile, Andrew is punched by a raver who was angry at the thought that Andrew was filming his girlfriend.

Outside, an upset Andrew is approached by his soon-to-be friend, Steve (Michael B. Jordan), who tells him that he and Matt have found something strange and they want him to come film it. They have found a mysterious hole in the ground which emits a loud and strange sound. The three of them proceed into the hole where they find a large, glowing object. They touch the object, which turns red and the camera then blacks out.

Several weeks later, Andrew, Matt, and Steve have developed telekinetic powers from their experience in the hole and demonstrate the ability to move, throw, and stop objects with their mind. They then decide to visit the hole once again but discovered that it has sunk in and the area has been sealed off by the Sheriffʻs department. They then use their powers to play practical jokes on people, including scaring a little girl by moving a teddy bear, and moving a supermarket shopper's car to a different space. Matt theorizes that their powers function like a muscle, becoming stronger each time they use them.

During a thunderstorm, an impatient motorist continues to honk at the three guys, which prompts Andrew to force the car over a barrier and into a nearby river, with ambiguous intentions. Steve and Matt rescue the driver and call for help before the police and paramedics show up. Angry that Andrew put a person in the hospital, Matt insists that they set rules regarding their new found powers, including not using their powers to hurt people or using them in public.

A while later, the three discover that they can use their powers to make themselves fly and during one excursion are almost hit by a jumbo jet. At Steveʻs request and a way to make himself more popular at school, Andrew enters the school talent show and proceeds to amaze his fellow students using his powers in the guise of magic. Andrew, Matt and Steve celebrate Andrew's new found popularity at a local house party. Andrew and a female classmate go upstairs to a bedroom, hopeful of losing his virginity. Instead, Andrew vomits on the girl, which results in him being unpopular again at school.

Andrew becomes increasingly hostile and bitter due to his school and home life and starts to hang out on his own. During a lightning storm, a concerned Steve finds Andrew in the sky and an angry Andrew accidentally kills him through unknown means. At the funeral, Matt shows concern about the mysterious circumstances regarding Steve's death, and over Andrew's reclusive nature.

At home, Andrew's mother is deteriorating and his father berates Andrew for having an expensive camera, whilst he struggles to pay for his mother's medication. In an attempt to come up with money for medication, Andrew uses his powers to mug some local thugs and rob a gas station. However, an explosion during the latter incident puts Andrew in the hospital under police investigation. At his bedside, his upset father informs the unconscious Andrew that his mother has died and angrily blames him for her death, causing Andrew to suddenly awaken and blow the outer wall out of the hospital room.

Nearby, Matt has a nosebleed and, sensing a problem with Andrew, drives with Casey to the nearby hospital. Andrew appears, floating outside the bedroom window and drops his father, who Matt proceeds to save. Matt tries to reason with Andrew, but Andrew is convinced he has evolved (referring to himself as "an apex predator "), showing no compassion or remorse. A battle commences, with Andrew crashing a helicopter and throwing police cars, officers and civilians alike. Matt begs Andrew to stop, but his rage causes him to inflict more damage. Eventually, Matt forces a nearby statue spear through Andrew, killing him instantly. The police surround Matt, but he flies away.

The final scene shows Matt, with Andrew's camera, landing in Tibet where Andrew previously said he wanted to visit due to its peaceful and tranquil nature. Matt vows to both use his powers for good and find out what exactly happened to them in the hole. With that, Matt says, "you made it", into Andrew's camera and proceeds to fly away.
