Village Voice
It's slickly shot and structured like a Bruckheimer sports weepie, but director Jonathan Hock also shows the image-production of Telfair as star. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
Superb, ultimately exhilarating account of Coney Island basketball phenom Sebastian Telfair's senior year at Lincoln High. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
Behind the cheering and popping flashbulbs of Through the Fire lurks another, much darker movie, one that questions the relationship between sneaker manufacturers and financially deprived kids with exceptional talent. Full Review
Michael Rechtshaffen
The Hollywood Reporter
A highly satisfying documentary tracking the hoop dreams of basketball bright light Sebastian Telfair as he made that rare leap from high school all-star to NBA draft pick. Full Review
Peter Hartlaub
San Francisco Chronicle
