I hate to say it but that bb kid is a terrible actor. He brought very little to the table. As for the story, I dig it. I like the pace of the movie, however, I wanted the story flush out better. I think, given the low budget that this movie was made, hopefully the guns can build a universe.

Considering the gore pictures they found under his bed along with women in bikinis, I'd say his issues had been there for a while before the movie starts. Probably wouldn't have helped, but that's the moment when you should send your kid to get some professional help.

It would've been more intriguing if we didn't know why he was eating his fork and acting weird but then when the parents figured it out we would've had to have flashbacks and it would've been janky imo. Also it was cool because it drew parallels to superman and I'm sure the trailers would've shown the ship landing as well.

I saw this movie at the drive in with my girlfriend and I wondered why the ratings were so much lower than I expected. I loved this movie I thought it was one of the best I’ve seen in the last couple months but I just realized I missed the spaceship scene at the beginning because I was at the snack stand.

it wasnt Sci-fi. it wasnt scary or suspenseful.
it wasnt well written or acted.
this review is what happens when the quality level of movies continually declines over the last 20 years. you start to think the mediocre stuff is great.
it was just boring and bad.
and that coming from a "SCI-FI" guy.

The kid’s a wasp. Just because he was raised by humans doesn’t mean he needs some deep internal conflict. A wasp raised by bees is still a wasp.

I disagree with the movie keeping secrets, struggle between good and evil, or any other Hollywood cliches that you want the movie to have. I like how the movie is. It's just an evil alien kid who's directive is to destroy the world.

I think the point of the movie is the ship waking him up to what his real mission is on earth. So in a sense he did just suddenly turn evil, for me it was okay for him not to show any remorse. I would like to see a sequel though when we (earthlings) try to fight back and get him!

One glaring problem I had with this movie was how incredibly bad the parents are. It's as if they never got to know their kid and couldn't be bothered to have one single serious and honest conversation with him. No wonder he grew up to be threat to the world, he was taught to not trust anyone.

Hello Chris,
Just watched it, pretty excited - agree with all your points and nice perspective about the budged and writting style! Thematically it seems to me that the kid actually began his journey of horror after he started puperty. He has pornography which symbolyses lust and attraction, and from the scene with his dad about the 'talk', he instantly recognises his admiration for the girl, by saying 'now?'. From my point of view it was romance and lust that ignited the hole thing, and made him just furious, when he gets rejected, and fairly so - not exactly a social genius - and ofcourse from there it just escalated. i know the theme of pornofication, isn't really represented , and it's probably a stretch, but i still found it quite fitting and symptomatic of current times. Anyways that's my deranged take on this movie

What made this movie bad to me is that he was just bad for the sake of being his mission was to take over the world but like...for what PURPOSE....WHY y,know there was no reason that explained that, it kinda reminded me of Dragon ball Z how Goku was sent to Earth to rule it but he hit his head and forgot his mission. But atleast in the show it explains why Saiyans took over worlds but in this movie, the kid was just an evil superman thats it....:/ like a what if Superman was actually an evil kid with powers that wannted to take over the world...thats it -_- very disappointing there wasnt more to it then just that. An the rest of his kind were they gonna go to Earth to see or help him take over the world or what kind of race of aliens were they etc. just sooo many unanswered questions and he was just a kid with powers who was evil who wanted to take over the world for NO REASON and if there was a reason for it, we sure dont get NO explanation why. but oh well it was cool seeing him act like an evil Superman tho with the kills other then that movie didnt really care for it.

I watched the movie yesterday and I really enjoyed it. I absolutely agree with you, I felt the movie kind of rushed up and I was really expecting some thing more deep but overall the movie was great. I also expected a short background were Brandon (The boy) came from, but I think this is a good thing that they made his original background a mystery. For example I think Brandon come from another diminution (Earth 3) and when he is become a man he probably be Ultra man from DC comic Crime syndicate (That is my thought). Anyway, excellent review as always Chris good job mate.

Do you honestly think that not including the crash landing scene

While I appreciate Chris's opinion that there should have been more of a struggle within Brandon, I saw him being "commanded" by the ship to "take the world" as a twist on the whole "Clark activates the Jor-El hologram & it tells him he can/has to be a hero" trope from both Superman (1978) & Man of Steel, so I'm okay with how it happened. That said, I think that's a very minor problem that the Superman movies & this exude: why can't it be the character's own choice to do good or evil? Are they fated to do either?

This movie was terrible. Only the idea was good. It's like watching the same scene over and over again; Brendan stands in front of someone, camera pans, Brendan is gone! Cue Brendan flying in again with violence.
Also there was no story at all. No character development. Why did he want to kill all these people? Where did he come from?
I can't take anyone serious that passes this off as anything more than watchable.

I agree I thought the logic throughout the movie was quite dumb. The premise was interesting, but the writing was sloppy. It doesn't help that the trailer gave away all the good parts of the film either. So going into this movie you can pretty much predict everything that's going to happen before it happens. Alright movie to watch before bed but isn't worth going to the theaters.

Yeah but they needed to advertise it as 'evil superman' to get a decent amount of people in the cinema, they really wouldnt have been able to keep the alien part a secret. And also I feel like his motivations were clear enough, he is still just a kid

Great review, but I don't think taking out the intro crash landing scene would've helped the movie much, since every trailer gives you the idea that the movie is about an unusual, other-worldly kid who becomes evil. I think it would only work for someone going into the movie completely blind knowing nothing about it other than the title.

I thought it was pretty cool movie. As you said it lacked some character development. He went from nice boy to prince of darkness in 0.2 seconds. I heard so much about it being like evil Superman, but the only things that were like Superman was the adoption and the farm. Other than that it was pretty much a purely evil alien who happens to have superman like powers.

Guess they would have had to withhold a lot more from the trailers if they wanted to do a late second act reveal.
It was evident from the first trailers that came out that this was a twist on Kal-El's origin story from the Superman saga.

Still one of the movies im most looking forward to this year

Very interesting insight, Chris! The idea of a twist could have really made this story a bit more compelling and really could have built up the motivation and explanation side of it too.

I think he's just a straight psychopath, just the shit he does or saids has traits of a psychopath, not even the killing forget about that, just how he reacts and acts and how he's very anti social as well, a lot of traits of a psychopath, to me personally super power or not I think he would have ended up evil

Not sure if I’m reaching here, but I also kind of noticed a really nice touch of colour symbolism. Many times in the movie you’ll see the family around blue clothing and other items, while the kid’s aesthetic is all red. Every time he goes crazy there’s a touch of red, but whenever his parent’s bring him back down, there’s always blue in the shot.

It's funny.. I just saw this movie and it did NOT have that opening scene with the crash. We see the parents fooling around in the bed, they get interrupted by a sound that goes silent, and then goes out with a big bang. Then it cuts to footage of the boy as a baby, growing up. That's it. The crash scenes comes later in the film, so I'm kinda sad that Chris Stuckmann didn't see this version that I did :) Anywho, I loved the movie with its flaws.

Good film, but need more character development to show his motivation. Also it seems everyone kept making really dumb mistakes typical of horror films. Since they let you in on the alternate Superman-verse right at the star, it would have been cool to see some other character origins like "Lex Luthor" turning out to be the good kid scientist that has suspicions about Bryan, setting up for the sequel.

Here's the thing: I thought the film was solid. Great acting, good premise, good writing, and one helluva third act. The ending was good. I liked the direction. I thought it was good. But when 'Bad Guy' by Billie Eilish came on and they played it over clips of him leveling cities and killing thousands.... i just couldn't take it seriously. Its hard to take in these horrific things while a pop song with an up-tempo beat plays. If they intended for me to take it seriously... no. just no. kinda took me out of it because it was so HARD R and gory details that its jarring to hear an up-tempo pop song come up. its just odd. to prove my point, watch the movie (its worth watching), listen to the song in the finale, then look up the music video. Tell me that the tone matches
