Brightburn (2019) - Rotten Tomatoes

Brightburn (2019)



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

All Critics (189) | Top Critics (25)

Because the film that this broadside of brass describes is ultimately, seriously, "Duuuumb!"

June 21, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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.

June 10, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.

June 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A cure for superhero movie fatigue, this lean, gory horror film...has a coherent narrative and pays off with a bang.

May 29, 2019 | Full Review…

If the filmmakers had a modicum of curiosity about the implications of their own idea, the movie might have had something interesting to say.

May 27, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Brightburn can at least boast an interesting premise - not that it does anything with it.
