Take your pick. Psychotic superboy or Evil omen teen with super powers. If there was any good in the kid he's well beyond any saving grace during and after the movie. Is this a setup for another super being to come to earth and counteract psychotic superboy? Depressing to see earth getting its butt kicked by a superbrat.
Anyway, a Brigthburn 2 is planned for the future so until then this might be the start of a "franchise" for superhero bad guys.

A real stinker. Elizabeth Banks can do much better.

Good twist on the Superman story. Has one of the most gruesome scenes in a long while. Worth a look for sure.

One of the best horror movies I've seen in a long time. Waiting for the sequel.

I was hoping for a thinker along the lines of Superman: Red Son, instead it's just a meh horror movie. Production values were solid, acting was decent, script was OK and a great opportunity for something fairly original was utterly squandered.

Everybody's a critic. I recently rewatched the entire run of Smallville. This movie is the opposite of that. Clark Kent worried about becoming an unstoppable monster, but the love from his parents kept him on the right course. This film leaves you to wonder did these parents give up too quickly on their child? They certainly lacked the communication skills to work together for the good of the child. Smallville had 10 years to get it right and this is one movie. I enjoyed the film and I hope there is a sequel. I thought this was a well made film that has a story worth a second or third film. Who is this child and why was he sent to destroy the earth? This movie is a good candidate to become a TV series. I would really like to learn more.

I agree with one of the reviewers who said this not a great movie but is an ok way to pass time! It had fairly good acting and special effects and the story line was interesting.

As a comic book movie fan I was looking forward to this. The movie itself is ok, should have been better because it has a great premise. A couple of disturbing scenes in this one if you're squeamish.

A very intense and heart stopping movie. The main actor was so good at his role and keeping you on edge. Brightburn is a really well made thriller. I loved the storyline which explored the path that 'Superman' may have taken if he came from somewhere incredibly evil and was impacted in the wrong way by the people around him. Banks also did a wonderful job in her role as his mother (felt a bit bad for her character though).

Brandon Breyer: Who am I?

Tori Breyer: You're our son.

Brandon Breyer: What is this? Where did I come from?

Tori Breyer: Listen, baby, I... I know it's been difficult for you lately, that you feel different from other kids. You *are* different. After your dad and I got married, we prayed for a baby for so long, to God, to the universe, to anyone that would listen. One night, one perfect night, someone listened.

Don't worry, smart guys end up ruling the planet.

Uh, well, um, bees are pollinators, and wasps are predators.
-Good, good. Anybody else?
And wasps are more aggressive, more dangerous. One species, the Polistes sulcifer, is what's called a brood parasite, they've lost the ability to make nests, so they use brute force to make other wasp species to raise their young. And they make them feed their babies things like beetle larvae and maggots.

You know you just had your birthday, winch means that you are becoming a young man and uh.. Your body is changing. Ok. Well we start developing, you know, feelings about women, women's bodies.. I was just like you when I was your age, I also thought about girls all the time. You know, nobody was around to tell me that, It was ok to.. Uh.. Touch it or play with it..
-With what?
Ah you know with.. Your penis.
-Ok.
Look the thing about, you know, sex, it's not.. It's not about organs or body parts.. I mean, you know, it is that too but.. You know, it's about finding the right person and then falling in love. Look all I'm saying is: You are a guy, you know, and you are gonna have certain urges, you know, about girls you see in films or girls in class or whatever.. And I'm just saying that it's ok to give into them now and again.
-Like.. Now?
