Great inspirational story.

This is a very inspiring and entertaining true life story of how family and faith helped support Jeremy Lin to overcome many obstacles to become an NBA player.

This movie is very inspirational and shows that hard work doesn't always go unnoticed even when you feel like you're wasting your time.

The movie is well made. Various materials are well organized, and the story kept me absorbed from the beginning to the end. Even though some of the scenes have been shown in the media, such as games highlights, the story is at a different level, not just a collection of highlights. The most interesting part is that Lin had an opportunity to tell what was going on in his mind throughout the memorable events, and we get to see little things behind the scene that showed his human side, and what a lovely person he is. What impressed me very much is the family. What a loving family. Everyone of them showed honesty and class. And above all, there is no doubt that his faith has been guiding him in dealing with hardship, setback, success and fame. I actually watched the movie twice in my Amazon video library. It is awesome!

It was great to see how everyone in the family supported each other. The old family vids were cute and seeing where the family came from was interesting. There were a lot of ups and downs in JLins journey but he handled it very well. This movie is very inspirational and shows that hard work doesn't always go unnoticed even when you feel like you're wasting your time.

ignore the IMDb rating of 4.5 out of 10. its just a bunch of haters that probably haven't even seen the film. as of 10/9/13 it has 62% on rottentomatoes with audience rating of 85%.

[...]

it just seems like JLin attracts a lot of jerks cause hes the only asian star in the nba right now.

if you're a fan of JLin you'll probably like this movie.

I've been waiting to see this movie for over a year, and it's definitely worth the wait. This movie helps fill in the gaps during Linsanity, and it's nice to know what was going on in Jeremy's mind during his ups and down. Ultimately, the movie is about perseverance and hard work, but most important it's about living with a higher purpose in life. Linsanity is the ultimate testimony to the power of GOD, and it's great that Jeremy is using his fame to spread the gospel. For those fans that are not religious, the is the best underdog sports story since Rocky or Hoosiers.

This is a movie about a young man and the way he lives his life. People, young or old, can look to this movie for inspiration and for an example of living a life "the right" way. This is accomplished without being condescending.

For NBA fans worldwide, "Linsanity" refers to an unforgettable two-week period February of last year where NBA player Jeremy Lin, days away from being waived, mesmerized the world with a 7-game winning streak. However, this documentary is not just about basketball or Lin's rise to fame. Director Leong and his movie crew started filming Lin's journey years ago when he was still a student at Harvard. Combined that footage with candid interviews of Lin and those around him, the movie provided great vignettes and insight into the daunting challenges Lin faced along the way. Clips of home videos also gave the audience a "behind-the-scene" look at Lin's childhood and his life off the court. All in all, "Linsanity" is not just for NBA fans. It is a film about a young man's faith, perseverance, resilience, tenacity, strength, and relentlessness in pursuit of his dream. It is for everyone who has a dream.

I think it's a very good demonstration through Lin's life that it's not about NBA, Harvard and Asians instead it's really about why I am here, how to live my life and whom I am for.
