Brightburn ★★½

My previous review of this film still applies, even after a second viewing. However, I now have just a little bit more overall respect for the execution of the story and the production of the film. Yes, it is a simple narrative about the "what if Superman was evil" story concept. Yes, the death scenes are horrifically graphic, such as the shard of glass in the eye and the broken jawbone against the steering wheel, for example. Yes, there are several moments of the "jump scare" tactics that usually annoy me, but it isn't as irksome as it usually would be when it occurs in this movie.
