Metascore (Crtics) Rating 6.3/10

Movie Nations Roger Moore rated it 6.3/10 and wrote:

The final act isnít as interesting as the first two were to me. But Hirsch impresses, as usual, as a man losing his wits and Dern always gives fair value as a canny old coot who knows more than heís letting on.

IMDB User Rating 6.7/10

Intriguing Origin Story:

Since Chronicle, there has been many sci-fi indies trying to deconstruct the superhero origin story. There are a couple of questionable choices but overall, it is a well told story. The movie could start with better misdirection.The movie needs more action for the third act. In the end, this is an intriguing origin story.

MGN Rating:

One of my most favourite Origin stories with a similar feel was "Brightburn". This offering does not obviously have the budget but like "Brightburn", has a well cast young actor taking on the "Dark" lead.

As many reviewers suggest it does run out of steam a little, but is relatively engaging for it's 95 minutes of film time and you want to know how our young hero copes.

As far as the adults Dern is always a fun watch and has you guessing as to his real intentions throughout.

Not totally original but a reasonable low budget addition to the Genre.

MGN Rating 6.5/10
