Not just for the fans, the doc presents an entertaining and thoughtful story of racial minded America and the effect it has had on the struggle and the success of Jeremy Lin.

Linsanity offers lots for b-ball fans, but also has a higher purpose.

Doesn't really do anything too unorthodox, but the production values are stellar, and this wouldn't feel especially out of place as a 30 for 30

Commingling tabloid frenzy, familial roots, underdog uplift, racial identity and nose-to-the-grindstone doggedness, Linsanity is a film with lots on its mind but a solid vision as to the interwoven elements of Lin's astounding tale.

Unchallenging but exciting and enjoyable, an underdog story with a relatively happy ending.

Leong's film isn't particularly stylish, but it makes the most of the climactic Knicks footage, as well as showcasing a sweetly goofy side of the 25-year-old ...

You may have watched Lin's rise to national prominence the first time, but it's still easy to get caught up in the moment.

A plethora of Lin family home-video clips, riveting archival and Leong-shot footage ... help tell the icon's remarkable story.

While it's a shame Leong couldn't find a fresher approach to Lin's story...he does well in setting the stakes. The greatest basketball phenomenon of the last several years takes care of the rest.

A faith-based film with a pretty good brief-moment-in-basketball history documentary tucked into it.

If you're a fan of Jeremy Lin, it's unlikely to tell you anything you don't already know, though it may give you a few new moments over which you can coo, "Aw, look at him! Isn't he just a great person?"

It's pretty much just trekking through the territory that got written up in all those game day reviews.

At age 25, the likable and surprisingly humble Lin has so little career behind him and, his fans hope, so much more ahead, that his onscreen soul searching about lost opportunities and early missed dreams rings hollow.

A little game footage can go a long way; and a lot of game footage, no matter how good, goes a very long way.

As a piece of filmmaking, Linsanity is scattershot and too reliant on newsreels. And the interviews, most of all with the religiously devout Lin are, alas, fairly unrevealing.
