[6.25/10] Brightburn (2019)

Brightburn (2019)

Quick Review: A fairly intriguing, if undercooked superhero sci-fi horror hybrid with a freaky premise about 'a malicious alien child with harmful superpowers', "Brightburn" has the chance to be something special, but despite the neat direction, spot-on acting, some surprisingly gruesome scenes soaked in gore, and a few moments of creepy tension, this one never live ups to its potential, giving no explication about its protagonist's extraterrestrial origin, or the motives of his inhuman evilness.

I guess the problem with Brightburn is that it's very predictable seeing it took elements from both comic book superheroes and slashers. If you seen one of each, you'd probably seen it all!

Still, not bad. At least it's a fun watch. Loved it more than I would have, actually.

Yes, it was very Superman-ish....
