Movie Review - Brightburn (2019)
R , 90 Minutes
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?
Brightburn is a somewhat unfocused, but fairly decent movie. If it counts, it’s a nice kickstarter for the so-called “superhero horror” genre. However, it does certainly have a problem in that area as well. I love multi-genre movies when the execution is skilled, but this film was very messy in that area, switching tone with nearly every scene. There’s some significant body horror that sort of works, though it gets to be pretty excessive at a certain point. The music score was easily one of the best parts of the film, as it had much more of a focus than what I was actually watching. However, it doesn’t hold a candle to Michael Rooker’s conspiracy theorist cameo at the end, which left me on a good note after any negatives. The disappearing gimmick was used way too many times, also to the point of excessiveness. Even with those negative, I was entertained. It was a unique movie that I could see myself watching again. If you don’t go into this with high expectations, you won’t be disappointed. It isn’t great, but Brightburn is a unique spin on the classic Superman story.
