Brightburn (2019) Poster

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?

| Solid B+ or shall I say BB
It's not a perfect movie, but it was awesome. The filmmakers successfully expanded the genre.

BB reminded me as a mixture of X-23 played by Dafne Keen in Logan, Charlie played by Milly Shapiro in Hereditary and a dash of Mads Mikkelsen in Hannibal.

It had some great ideas, but some of the scenes felt overly simplified. I think this is because of the smaller budget. I don't know why but the version I saw in the cinema had the red band trailer's "eye / glass shard" scene removed. I wonder what other scenes got removed...

I'm glad that this "exploratory" movie got greenlit. Hope to see more of these getting made.
