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.

Artistically, I'd say the documentary wasn't particularly spectacular. It wasn't a badly made one either but I wouldn't give a lot of credit to it being extraordinarily made. But, it tells the story of Jeremy Lin and I think that's what makes this watchable and recommendable. I saw two aspects of this story...the one about an Asian American NBA basketball player who fought against the odds and the story of a man who continues to submit his life to God whether in success or failure...The story is told through the career beginnings of Jeremy Lin starting in high school. It feels very succinct but I believe it hits all the right high points of what made Jeremy Lin, the Jeremy Lin today.

He is a child of an immigrant couple, who was born and raised in northern California. His parents raised three boys and their focus was clearly on ensuring that their children knew what is the most important in life - putting God first. This is so clearly shown in the story of Jeremy Lin and even with all the success and glory as [one of the very few] Asian American NBA players, he gives all glory to God...and I believe this film really gives glory to God. I walked away from the movie reminded of how God orchestrates our lives for His glory when we humbly submit to him. It's an obvious fact but it made me think about how even in NBA, God works! In addition to this, I was also convicted of the hard-work Jeremy Lin puts into his work everyday whether rain or shine. I think we're all guilty of saying that we want to live for God but not willing to put in the work. In the movie, Lin's coaches made repeated comments about how hard he practices. God deserves our best.

I have little knowledge of NBA or being an Asian American but I really am very proud of Jeremy Lin as an Asian living in America and as a sister in Christ. Will be praying for you brutha! ;)
