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.
Pic sidesteps cloying sentimentality and heavy-handedness with the help of a solid cast.
... a thoughtful, insightful, even philosophical portrait of lives worth living, regardless of timeframe.
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.
This sick-kid drama is well-made enough, but ultimately too familiar to resonate.
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.
