Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The mellow Laue, clearly still mourning the death of his dad, makes a likable enough subject, if sometimes low-key to the point of dull."
‑ Sara Stewart, New York Post
"[Pounds] home its points via a seemingly endless series of sound bites that forms the chief content of the first half."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Village Voice
"A memorable account of an inspiring struggle to finish on top."
‑ Daniel M. Gold, New York Times
"Long Shot confirms that achieving one's goals is rarely possible without the staunch support of others."
‑ Nick Schager, Time Out New York
"Despite the story's elements of suspense, loss and determination, though, the picture has a mundane, low-stakes vibe that fails to make the most of its inspirational content."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"Cornball adjectives like "inspiring" and "uplifting" are for once entirely accurate in describing this engaging documentary."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
