The film is beautifully put together, with slick editing and glossy photography. The beauty of Rwanda is astonishing.
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.
Engaging personalities and lively, good-looking assembly make T.C. Johnstone's inspirational sports docu a crowdpleaser.
This feel-good sports doc brings a little-known story to compelling life.
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.
TC Johnstone's cycling documentary might sound at first like just another sport movie trying hard to seem inspirational, yet this study of the story behind 'Team Rwanda' is indeed just that.
It's hard not to get swept up in this film's sense of hope.
Inspiring, tough-hearted documentary about the formation of the Rwandan cycling team in the wake of the 1994 genocide.
We're invited to bask in the achievements of Team Rwanda, but it's difficult to when confronted with the lingering intrigue surrounding Boyer's story.
So while the subjects explored in Rising from Ashes are worthy of contemplation, the methodology of doing so puts the brakes on the film's ability to inspire and persuade.
The race footage is everything a cycling addict, or even a casual admirer, could hope for.
