    The evil super villain in the movie is the equivalent of DC Ultraman, who is an alternate universe evil clone of Superman. In Brightburn evil superman is a 12 year old kid who kills his victims horror film style using all the powers that superman has. It was pretty good.

        The way it ended makes me wonder if there'll be more.

            Brightburn and Midnight Special should have been one movie.

              Honestly I thought the mom was kinda dumb, she let him get away with many serious implications, not to mention her just disregarding the fact that he flung the dad right in front of her. so I did not relate to her struggle.

                I got tired cause the movie had 2300 scenes were a character sees Brandon, then the camera slowly moves, then goes back but OMG BRANDON ISNT THERE ANYMORE. It was ok the first 1000 times, but later on I was like yeah ok turn the camera back to see that he is gone so we can move already.

                    Overall I thought the movie was really good, although there were a couple of scenes where people hear noises in the dark and mutter lines like, "who's there?" or "Is that you, _____?" that were really cliche and overused in horror films. What I liked the most is that the movie didn't have the typical Hollywood ending, where the protagonist (Elizabeth Banks) kills the evil force (although it's set up to look like she might). That last scene with her falling through the night sky was really powerful, and I agree with Chris that this movie looked like it was made with a MUCH bigger budget than the $7 million he mentions.

                            I liked this movie mm ore than I thought I would. it had holes in the character development and a few other issues but really nailed what it did follow up on.

                              This movie was disappointing for how hyped up it was, just seemed like a very lazy plot that relied entirely on it's graphic killings...also Elizabeth Banks' performance was so generic and laughable at times, probably due to lazy writing..I'd give it a C+

                                  I got really excited cause I thought you'd find out it was a meteor shower, then at the end there's more than one super boy. I didn't want a man of steel punch on but a much faster vicious kid punch on haha

                                              This movie deserved better. It should have had better script, character development, a good plot but it has none

                                                The Brightburn symbol literally ripped or inspired by the "branding of Sacrifice" in "Berserk"!

                                                  There were only like 20 credited roles in the movie. Tight knit.

                                                              This movie has a genius premise stuck in a generic horror movie structure. The idea is so cool and fresh, it's a pity it lacks the creative ambition to develop it.

THERE IS NO HORROR, JUST JUMP SCARES. THAT'S THE CHEAPEST KIND OF A HORROR MOVIE .plus the acting was sub par and the mother became obnoxious and the little boys acting well was pathetic .

                                                                            This was the only review I saw that had a thoughtful critique not only of the final product, but also possibilities we will never see. It's interesting you compared the base premises with the Superman premises; I considered Brighyburn to the BASE outline of Goku's origin story: kid sent/crashed to earth to destroy it, but this time did not bump is head (and thus forget his objective) so he begins killing all of the humans.

                                                                                I didn’t really like this movie, kill scenes were pretty cool but not really logical in some. The mother and father character finding the baby in the woods was well played out, you can tell that the mother really wanted a kid and the father wanted to be a father. It’s just the bright burn character is a kid. I can’t really take a kid from a red meteor from space killing everyone and enslaving everyone to take over the world. The red glow effect was bad in my opinion, it just felt like a red lightbulb instead of some weird fetish seat with blood and gore. It just reminds me of some anger issue kid in school that draws 24/7 or something and hates everyone and thinks of their own fantasy of killing everyone in school. Gore was cool I guess, the jaw scene was ok, I liked when the kid ran on the black cop chief and just obliterated him then banged the cop girl against the ceiling. The ending was a cliff hanger so there’s mostly going to be a second one. I just think how it will all end is that he will rule the world or something then kill him self becuz he doesn’t have love that he’s been needing.
