Brightburn, 24 May 2019, rated R for blood and guts. What is faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, stronger than a 747 in flight (well even a bird can bring one of those down), Impervious to anything trying to shoot it. Of course, it is superman… NOT. There is a new super guy on the block. It is a twelve-year-old that arrives on earth just like superman, as a baby. Like Superman, he does have one weakness. He is raised in a loving family, but outside influences change him.
What caught my attention most was the idea that the boy had to learn his powers the hard way, it was very detailed in that respect and deadly. A baby lands in a small farming community of Brightburn, in the midwest USA. Sound familiar? A nice quiet town where the only killers have guns, well, hunters and the like. If you aren’t one of them, then you are an outsider. Seems there are plenty of murderers. So what is this little boy supposed to do in lieu of all these bad people? I can hardly wait until he is president!
You will have to guess, but it isn’t pretty. Superman he is not, you cross this boy, you won’t like what happens. Blood, guts, and suspense. Good acting, good directing, good photography and good editing, enjoy. I give this 5 out of 5 stars, not only is it good it is different, although I thought I was watching a superman film for a while.
