I saw this at the Cinefamily world premiere in Los Angeles, and as someone who has no interest in comics, I must say this was so much fun. It's not your traditional short film. Rather, it's kind of a hybrid between Red Letter Media's Star Wars reviews and the Drunk History. Max Landis, son of director John Landis, has a real zeal for storytelling and makes the story of Superman's death interesting and exciting. The short runs about 20 minutes which is about 5 times the length of most short films. But Max's energy, the great costumes, fun effects and visuals make the time fly by. The most shocking aspect of this piece is the cast! Somehow Max Landis has managed to get film stars like Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, television stars, internet stars, and even Academy Award Winning director Ron Howard to run around in silly costumed reenacting his interpretation of a Superman Comic. On top of being highly entertaining, DAROS is also educational in it's own right. I walked out of there feeling more aware of what seems like a pretty important moment in the world of comics. I hope Max does more of these!
