Brightburn

(1/1)

Richard:
Everyone should see Brightburn immediately. That is all.

Mardroid:
I saw it last Sunday, actually.

I did find it a bit predictable, and got a bit bored half way through but it was pretty good overall.

It did actually make me jump a couple of times and it's pretty creepy. Anyone thinking this is another superhero or even a supervillain story*.... it isn't. Its a horror story which plays with Superman's origin story as a starting point.

* Although I guess a supervillain story could be a horror story. If you watch it, I think you'll see why I made the distinction, though. This is to superhero/villain stories what Alien is to sci-fi.

Rately:
I enjoyed it, and think that a sequel could improve on the premise, especially the idea that he is at the forefront of an invasion, and eventual destruction of Earth.

Really had some lovely moments, though a bit too gory for my liking. And as a younger man, I never thought I'd say / type that.  :lol:

shaolin_monkey:
It was watchable enough, but all the best bits were in the last 30 seconds.

GordyM:
It kind of reminds me of Unbreakable in that come the end it feels like you've only really seen the first act of a much bigger and more interesting story.
