REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..much of this film quickly vanishes from memory, but there's some gold here..”
by Tom Keogh [Seattle Times]
“..the movie's animated interludes liven up what could've been thoroughly pat..”
by Noel Murray [AV Club]
“..though Death of a Superhero can at once be sweet and devastatingly sad, the movie just doesn't tell a story that's all that new..”
by Beth Carter [Wired]
