Storyline Heading
What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister?
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Horror Sci-Fi - This is a violent horror movie spin on a Superman-like superhero story. While the figure at the center of the film is a pre-teen, the violence, language, and adult subject matter make the film not for kids. Elizabeth Banks fans will enjoy her juicy dramatic role.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor A machine to deliver gore and violence, "Brightburn" also features some of the most improbably and even hatefully dumb salt-of-the-Earth type characters in a recent American horror movie. But even if you watch "Brightburn" knowing that it doesn't have much going for it beyond a few disturbing kill scenes, you will still be disappointed.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Poor Brightburn never shows us how Brandon came to such a realization, but it does let us glimpse the stone-cold delight he takes in erasing human life—a spectacle of violence that exists for its own soulless sake.

The Guardian Full Review
Above Average It's a film that's good enough that you want it to be better, a rare genre example of less not proving to be more. ...there are some audaciously grisly deaths... At times, Brightburn risks falling into the all-too-familiar creepy kid horror formula but there's just about enough to distinguish it from that ever-expanding subgenre...
