What the Critics say
Gabi Zietsman Brightburn was a film with grande potential, possibly creating a new genre to accompany the superhero schtick, but while it wasn’t terrible and still a good watch, it struggled with the same lack of emotional intensity as its hero - or in this case - villain.
Jim Judy What’s present is decent enough to earn a slight recommendation simply for turning an all-too-familiar genre on its head, but it can’t shake the feeling that it could have been so much more.
Tomatometer Although Brightburn doesn’t fully deliver on the pitch-black promise of its setup, it’s still enough to offer a diverting subversion of the superhero genre.
