    90 minute film about a bad young pseudo- superman. It could have been a great premise but it lacks storyline impact. I hope the writing could have been better. It is always ugly when evil wins, hopefully, there is a part two.

    A cross between Superman and We Need to Talk About Kevin.

    This is an interesting take on the whole superhero/mutant idea. No spoilers, but this movie is not for the faint of heart - real talk. I would compare this movie to something like Split with blood mode enabled. Not going to win awards but definitely worth a watch.

    Aka SLOW BURN! I lost interest after ten minutes. Could've swore I saw this same cliche movie before and didnt like it the first time so this round had me turning it off and not even finishing it.

    Great flick about a 'problem child' with superhero abilities. Lots of violence and gore in this, pretty satisfactory ending although leaves you wanting more, but the news clips at the end tie it up a bit. Lesson on why you shouldn't adopt babies from UFOs that crash in your backyard! Thought that was common knowledge though.

    Soulless and poorly conceived nightmare fuel. Zero character development. Would fit right into a mind-control media program designed for brainwashing a future serial/mass murderer. Will taint/lower your vibes. Not appropriate for children. Has a ‘cool' hip hop song playing over the hard cut to black of the end titles in a disgustingly transparent attempt to tweak the audience into identification with the 12yo alien child villain recast as an attempt at an anti-hero. This is not a film with an anti-hero however. This nearly comes off more as a clumsy, experimental attempt to weaponize film. Stay away.

    With such an interesting premise and a brilliant setup, Brightburn should've been an unforgettable twist on the Superman story. Unfortunately it fails in execution and doesn't fully become the promising superhero-horror mashup it had the potential to be. The ending in particular was very disappointing because not only was it predictable, it was an unsatisfying conclusion. Still the movie remains fascinating for being the first of its kind and hopefully an inspiration to filmmakers who can improve its concept.
