Jackson A. Dunn is undoubtedly the star of the show here, and a young actor that I'm incredibly impressed with.
September 4, 2020
Much of the credit for the ways in which the film does succeed goes to the sublimely cast Jackson A. Dunn.
August 15, 2020
Thanks to an impressive array of central performances and some memorable explosions of gore, it does limp across the finishing line with most of its goodwill in tact.

Brightburn is the ultimate superhero 'What if...?' scenario, taking things to the furthest extremes.
February 10, 2020
A predictable yet entertaining, gleefully bloody exploration of evil finding its way in the world.
November 12, 2019
Maybe it has many issues, but Brightburn is exactly what horror fans ask for in this era of 'superhero infested multiplexes'. [Full review in Spanish].
September 17, 2019
Brightburn is an intelligently made thriller whose director, David Yarovesky, knows how to draw out dread with silence and turn it up to 11 only when necessary.
September 1, 2019
Full of gore, crazy deaths, and jump scares! Brightburn is absolutely brilliant. And that ending... a must watch for horror fans!
August 15, 2019
Brightburn is a satisfactory "what if" Superman origin tale with top-notch performances and a well-balanced mix of horror and drama.
August 6, 2019
After such an exquisite set up, Brightburn's execution is a little bit disappointing, becoming a rather straightforward supernatural horror instead of delving deeper into superhero lore.
July 8, 2019
The film has some very effective moments, some solid performances, a good idea, but an execution that does not live up to the idea.
July 5, 2019
The conceit works brilliantly until, in the closing 20 minutes, it clatters disappointingly into a fatal uncertainty.
June 28, 2019
Brightburn takes a cool premise and executes it in a blackly fun but nihilistic manner.
June 24, 2019
It's an intriguing premise, and while the storyline isn't quite as intricate or inventive as one would have hoped, the plot - and a standout performance by Banks - still manages to keep you invested...
June 24, 2019
Brightburn isn't as subversive as it thinks it is, but it's still a satisfyingly schlocky yarn that does a lot with a simple premise and a modest budget.
June 24, 2019
Fun and jumpy as it is, that idea has more potential than is mined here.
June 21, 2019
This is straight-out slasher horror with superhero stylings, though it may be as much a comment on the tarnishing of America under Trump as it is a Twilight Zone-like spin on the Superman legend.
June 21, 2019
This is primarily a character study, about that thin line between heroism and horror.
June 21, 2019
Thoroughly daft, but deftly done.
June 20, 2019
Brightburn is a superhero horror movie that doesn't always hit its mark, but carries enough intrigue and gives just enough scares to warrant a visit.
