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
Despite its simplicity, Brightburn's premise is filled with potential, but it struggles to find anything meaningful to say.
Because the film that this broadside of brass describes is ultimately, seriously, "Duuuumb!"
The final effect... is a disheartening vacuum. Having torn down a myth, it leaves little but a dropped mic in its wake.
Director David Yarovesky does the fantasy stuff with flair. And the dafter the plot gets, the better the acting conjured from Elizabeth Banks as foster mom.
