    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.

    The premise of "What if a Superman-esque individual decides to dominate humanity" is an interesting one, and the performances from the cast are solid. Taking its cue from the likes of Watchmen and Deadpool, the violence and kills are quite graphic, matching the film's tone and emphasizes the power the alien child has. However, the scope of this story is very small, and the film is in that rare category of needing to have more material so the plot twist is effective one - it almost feels like the first 20 minutes are missing, as the violence kicks in too soon and thus no mystery or tension is maintained. Ultimately, Brightburn is a decent, if slightly unambitious, watch that subverts the idea of an alien "superhero".

    Great concept. Just didn't deliver like it should have.

    No, just no. It's a wannabe horror mixed with a wannabe anti-superhero movie, that doesn't stick either landings. I kept expecting a clever twist or turn that never happened, which is frankly the only thing that stopped me from turning this thing off mid way through.

    The film doesn't know if it wants to be a suspanse or an action film, but it turns out to be fun and with a good direction by David Yarovesky. (5.5/10)

    I really enjoyed the, probably more truthful, angle on what if superman was real and the clear similarities, farm, kansas etc. I didn't really see the need for the gore elements though, played out more like a Bmovie horror flick and I think that detracted from the very clever concept. I mean the guy ripping his jaw off on the steering wheel then waking up jaw hanging off?!... just didn't add anything to the movie at all!!! Hopefully they make a second to it and tone down the low brow gore as conceptually, it's up there.
