Critic Reviews for Into the Fire

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

Michael Phelan deserves points for chutzpah for daring to wallow in abject psychic misery in his debut film.

Phelan makes nice use of the New York locations, but all the trees in Central Park can't make up for a clichéd script and characters who speak entirely in platitudes.

A painfully sincere indie drama.

Top Critic

If there's an element of Into the Fire that isn't rank and offensive, I've failed to find it.

Village Voice
Top Critic

All dressed up with nowhere to go.

Film Journal International

The result is 93 very long minutes' worth of admirably committed actors putting themselves through the emotional wringer to very little end.
