  • what holds the documentary back from greatness is what makes the games themselves great: the tension and heat of conflict, the anticipation and revelation of the final outcome
    3 of 5 by Raphael Abraham [Financial Times ]
  • the most legit superheroes can be found in Ian Bonhote's and Peter Ettedgui's inspiring, gorgeously shot documentary on the Paralympics; "Phoenix" is a testament to resiliency, determination and passion, and is one of the best documentaries of 2020

    by Natalia Winkelman [New York Times ]

    by John Serba [Decider ]
