    Isn't there a What If comic book issue of Superman published for this scenario? It is thinly disguised as an origin story of an evil Superman. It takes place in a small town in the state of Kansas upon a ranch owned by a childless couple. The positive side of the movie is the wonderful production value they put into making it. But just too bad it feels like a feature-length adaptation of a limited-run What If comic book series.

    Want to know what happens if Clark Kent as a kid went bad. This is your movie, a really good new look on super hero powers but no so much hero really...

    Perhaps I set my expectations a little high. It was a generally well acted movie but so many avenues unexplored, identified and then ignored or simply glazed over. Basically The Omen with Superpowers...but with a poorer script.

    WTF I just watch. I'm not sure what really happened. I'm an Elizabeth Banks fan but that was all I could get out of this. The plot etc may have worked better as a book or indie film in the 70s or 80s(?) now it seems...meh. Unsatisfying because it was cliched. But yes. It passed the time.

    Waste of time. No clear motivation for the antagonist to do what he does.

    Brilliant film. Very good plot. Original and well done.

    Brightburn had a brilliant idea behind it that could have been developed so much more. The movie just doesn't explore the "evil Superman" idea as much as it should. Besides a few inspired scenes, the movie feels bland and uninspired.

    Filmed with passion for both the horror and the comic book genre, the film is an entertaining enough watch with good performances from all involved. Plus, bonus points for some of the practical gore effects.

    The movie was not that good, honestly just gratuitously gory. Nothing about the movie was wholesome and every turn was predictable. I don't mind gore, I quite enjoyed the walking dead. It's gore did however, have a purpose in the story. The gore in this movie was pointless and the idea could have gotten across without it. It was a waste of time to watch this movie, nothing positive came out of it, no enjoyment and no positive messages. Don't bother with this flop.

    Bof. It was not a bad movie. The storyline was too previsible. And the gore was too much for nothing. The acting was good. In total, it passed the time.
