Death of a Superhero Reviews

The latest release from Ian Fitzgibbon, director of A Film with Me in It, does work hard - and responsibly - at injecting colour into this most troubling of scenarios.

Much of this film quickly vanishes from memory, but there's some gold here. That's pretty much the message about life itself in "Death of a Superhero."

Charming, raunchy and improbably uplifting.

Fitzgibbon's cast is excellent, and the movie's animated interludes liven up what could've been thoroughly pat.

Pairing of drawings and live-action material help us get into Donald's head, but in a tamer manner, something that highlights the hope and makes it an enjoyable watch.

"A synchronous coming-of-age/coming-of-death story, the teen's complex mindset comes at us by way of an inventive live-action/graphics mix. Like the boy, the film steadfastly steers clear of the mawkish."

A generally affecting and occasionally insightful drama about the ways people handle an awareness of mortality.

Pic sidesteps cloying sentimentality and heavy-handedness with the help of a solid cast.

This sick-kid drama is well-made enough, but ultimately too familiar to resonate.
