Critic Reviews for Death of Nintendo

All Critics (6)

Although Death of Nintendo may not be the most ingenious piece of filmmaking, it does manage to find a focal point of inspiration despite adhering to the very familiar tropes of the coming-of-age narrative.

"Death of Nintendo" seems to have been made with the best of intentions, and the presentation of the era definitely evokes a sense of nostalgia. In the end, however, it remains a rather faulty effort, which fails to retain interest until the end.

Even when it's rough around the edges, these are characters that we want to spend time with and, in fact, they would make a great gang to build a television series around.

...although it will take some time for [the characters] to laugh about it, the endearing comedy lets audiences do so immediately.
