Los Angeles Times
Unfortunately, the athlete himself simply isn't much of a presence in this documentary, even as the film aims to celebrate him. Full Review
Andrew Schenker
Slant Magazine
With Danny Way almost never weighing in directly, the film's attempts to portray his story as an inspirational tale of triumph over adversity scarcely registers. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter

Joe Leydon
A slickly produced, unabashedly celebratory picture about professional skateboarder Danny Way. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
