Starring: Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn and more.

Synopsis: What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror

Personal Review:

A step in the right direction introducing a new genre of superhero horror to film lovers and critics worldwide. A wildly ambitious venture almost lived up the hype with a few let downs on the acting side as well as character exploration (i.e what motivates them to do what they do/did etc) and a few plot points easily excused by lazy writing but considering it’s the first of its kind we have nothing to compare it to. It may not of set the bar incredibly high to what may follow in the future but nevertheless it’s a first step opening up a new entire world of possibility with our favourite heroes turned villains. Add in some better writing, a little bit more depth on the acting side of things and you’ll have yourself a box-office hit.
