In the first 30 mins, i felt the plot was rushed. I got slightly annoyed by that. But midway through the movie i got engaged in it. In the end it was good. I don't see a Brightburn 2 happening, coz what is it going to be about?

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.

@K EL I think Chris has lost his critic touch. He used to be a real critic. Man, I have issues with this film and some were things Chris praised... you'd think he's never even watched a good film before 🤦‍♂️

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.

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 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.

You went for the wrong reason. I didnt watch it cause it was a horror movie...but because it was a take on if superman type hero was not good but bad. Was it but far from worst movie I've seen.

@SRM13 I went to the theater looking for some unusual concept from this 'horror' film. Too bad everything is just dumb and bland. 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 .

Chris....I'm looking forward to seeing your film. You pay attention to details in every movie, you have a good knowledge of what works and what doesn't work, and I do believe you are going to create, direct and produce a masterpiece one day.

Your review made me consider this movie very differently and provided the possibility of improvements and directions that could have taken the movie to an entirely differently level.
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.

This bad excuse for a super hero movie turned out to be a Gorefest with pointless violence and numerous grisly murders. Hollywood is so degraded this kind of garbage is produced instead of a Marvel style creative inspiration for adults. They have to make a ultra violent bloody film with a kid who murders his parents instead of a positive result like Shazaam. Pathetic slasher horror intead of an inspiring film.

Where was his motive to hurt/kill unclear to you? When his spaceship mindcontrollled him? When his parents lied to him? When his dad accused and abused him? When his spaceship explained his purpose? When his crush humiliated him? When his therapist and her partner planned to report him? When both his parents tried to kill him?

Chris I know you will never read this, BUT
1. the movie was billed as "Evil Superman" so you can not really hide the fact that the kid is an alien (EVERYONE KNOWS THE ORIGINS OF SUPERMAN)
 2. His motivation for being evil, I thought they hinted at it pretty clearly The ship was communicating with the kid once he began going through puberty (As i am sure you know, when kids go through puberty there is a LOT going on in the brain and the body, so the ship he arrived in was likely either set up on a timer (12 years) OR once the kid started going through puberty the ship was able to sense the change in him and the ship "Woke Up" and began communicating this kids purpose/mission "TAKE OVER THE PLANET" In Superman we know why he was sent away from Krypton, and why he was sent to Earth. But in Brightburn we do not know who sent him or why, Possibly the race that Brandon is a part of chooses to send out "Planet Conquerors" and once the planet has been conquered Brandon will in some way send out some kind of signal to his people letting them know that Earth is now part of their Empire?
3. By going to the "Brigthburn Wiki" page it says that James Gunn was saying that if the movie was a success (which financially it was a mild success) that there would be a sequel and some of what the sequel would contain is what we were shown in the mid credit scene, about some half man half sea creature and some kind of "Witch" BUT James Gunn then had to postpone that because he was re-hired to wright GOTG 3 and a sequel to Suicide Squad 2. So possibly in the next couple of years we could see a sequel to this movie that will expand on the mythos and motivations of Brandon. personally I would have given this an 8.5 out of 10 or a B+ but a B is still a good score.

@tbirum That ending with the evil justice league XD Since the DC universe is finished they should do that next!
tbirum - 20 giorni fa
Stuckmnn gave it a B which I am fine with, I would have given it a B+ but, yeah I watched that movie last night, and I found it to be MUCH better then what the general critics have been giving it, on IMDB it has a rating of 6.2 ,,,,,, 6.2!!! I do not understand all of the hate. I REALLY hope they make a sequel I would LOVE to venture deeper into a world filled with PYSCHO Super Humans, if you watch the mid credit scene again, there is a image where the "Conspiracy Guy" has images of the "Monsters" and you can see what is clearly a Evil Version of Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Superman (Brandon), The Flash, Martian Manhunter, and a Big ? implying that there might be another Creature/Superhuman. I would be more excited to this this then the next DC movie

brendans motives were very clear. Im having a problem with critics eg YMS RLM Stuckman and Jeremy not taking criticism seriously and misrepresenting movies cause they lack understanding, im so glad i ignored the reviews and saw it. The positives highly outweigh the negatives it was such a fascinating surprising and satisfying movie! 7.5/10
