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.
The conceit works brilliantly until, in the closing 20 minutes, it clatters disappointingly into a fatal uncertainty.
As an antihero with an oedipal complex, neither Brandon nor Dunn is sufficiently creepy or conflicted to launch a new franchise.
This is primarily a character study, about that thin line between heroism and horror.
