My excitement for "Brightburn" was predicated on the concept of an anti-superhero movie following a young and villainous Superman-like protagonist. The experience though, unfolds as a silly B-movie horror film with terrible writing and the shallowest of characters. After realizing this during the film, I figured it could make-up for its faults with blood and adrenaline. It does not accomplish this. The budget stretches thin and it's apparent they didn't have much more than is presented in the trailer. Brightburn is both a bad supervillain movie and a terrible horror movie. I'm sure people will disagree with me here. The film doesn't present many issues in sound design or camera-work. Besides doing just enough to fight for the weekend box office this movie won't be remembered.
