Brightburn [Movie Review]

For as long as I can remember, Superman is the best and the strongest hero and the planet saviour that I know. And as time moves on, more and more superhero joins him in the Earth-saving mission.
And along with that, the number of villains also grow.

But what will happen if the real deal behind Superman being sent to Earth was to seize the Earth instead of saving it?

Tori & Kyle Breyer has been trying to have a child but to no avail. So, when a meteor falls near their farm with a baby inside, it is like an answer to their prayers. They adopt the baby and name him Brandon. 

Year later, while helping his father on their farm, Brandon discovers that he has superhuman strength when he accidentally throws the lawn mower. That same night, he sleepwalks into their barn, towards a basement where his parents hide the meteor he arrived in.

It is not good to bring a baby into the wood at night time, or anytime at all
Kyle finds that Brandon grows more disobedient toward him and Tori but Tori chooses not to see it, dismissing it as a sign of puberty. One day, Kyle discovers Brandon chewing on a fork. 

When Tori finds strange drawings on Brandon's book, she asks Kyle to have puberty and girls talk with Brandon. Taking him on a hunting expedition, they talked about puberty and girls. That same night, someone enters into Caitlyn's bedroom and messes with her laptop. Caitlyn is a girl that Brandon likes.

During a trust fall exercise at school, Brandon's classmates do not catch him and let him fall. Caitlyn calls him a pervert as she suspects that Brandon was the one in her bedroom before. Angry at the accusation, Brandon breaks Caitlyn's hand when she tries to lift him up.

Oh my. Why is this new contact lenses so hard to remove?
Brandon visits Caitlyn at home but her mother sends him out. That night, Brandon dresses up and taunts Caitlyn's mother and kills her. And that's the start of horrifying haunts by Brandon towards anyone that displeases him, his family included.

Who is Brandon and why is he here on Earth?

Plot: 4.8/ 5.0 You can expect the start of the story will be the same as Superman's. And that all changes when Brandon discovers his strength. It was all twists from there on. This is like the total opposite of Superman and makes you wonder if this is the real mission of Superman?

Cast: 4.9 /5.0 I applaud Jackson A. Dunn for such a great performance as Brandon. Brandon is a kid with little words but his expressions were superb! 

Will I watch it again: Yes, I don't mind watching it again.
