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

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

Ed Gonzalez
Slant Magazine

A 90-minute version of Collective Soul's "The World I Know" as directed by Scott Stapp.

New York Daily News

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.

Doris Toumarkine
Film Journal International

All dressed up with nowhere to go.

New York Post

A painfully sincere indie drama.

Maitland McDonagh
TV Guide

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