Critic Consensus: 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.

Critic Reviews for Brightburn
Because the film that this broadside of brass describes is ultimately, seriously, "Duuuumb!"
This film draws its strength in part from its willingness to be a more humbly scaled operation than the tentpoles weighted down by mandates for billion-dollar grosses.
It leans heavily on jump scares and creeps before engaging with its premise, but when it does it's as chilling as Superman's freezing breath.
A cure for superhero movie fatigue, this lean, gory horror film...has a coherent narrative and pays off with a bang.
If the filmmakers had a modicum of curiosity about the implications of their own idea, the movie might have had something interesting to say.
