Critic Reviews for Death of a Superhero
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."
Fitzgibbon's cast is excellent, and the movie's animated interludes liven up what could've been thoroughly pat.
Pic sidesteps cloying sentimentality and heavy-handedness with the help of a solid cast.
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.
Audience Reviews for Death of a Superhero
very tragic and emotional drama, i've seen lotsa movies about death but this one affected me quite a bit, possibly cuz it's about a teenager dying, everything is presented realistically, with nothing really over the top, i felt all his frustrations, not just about dying, and the unfairness of that, but all the things that he'll never get to do, maybe he acted out unfairly at times, but if i was in his shoes, i cant say that i wouldnt do the same, ive always loved andy serkis in non motion capture roles, and im glad he got such a deep part here, and he does a great job, i hope he gets more roles like this, really good ending too, and good use of his drawings as an escape from reality, i highly recommend
