Essentially a sports documentary with the look and feel of an ESPN program, "Rising from Ashes" nevertheless has broad, inspirational appeal on a human level.

Ashes is joyous and uplifting, full of spirit, memorable athletes (including Olympian Adrien Niyonshuti) and remarkable achievements, both big and small.

Though the subject inspires, Johnstone's treatment lacks focus and edge, falling back on platitudes, sentiment, and generalities when clarity is what is needed.

A film that lacks complex human dimension to fill out this likable if promotional tale of good will and achievement.

Its story line is as positive and affirmative as the title indicates, but it turns out there are dramas going on in this documentary that you wouldn't initially suspect.

Sports provide a path for redemption for both athletes and coaches in Rising From Ashes, a documentary whose power is diminished by uneven storytelling.

The movie crafts genuine drama from a nail-biter of an Olympic-qualifying race and authentic pathos from footage of Rwandans watching the Games' opening ceremony on television.
