[It] serves up its material with an excess of treacly music and an overabundance of glowing reminiscences. This has the odd effect of making his story less powerful than it actually is.
Neil Genzlinger - New York Times
This was a man who needed no help standing out from the crowd.
Stephanie Merry - Washington Post
A straightforward documentary that uses Yoni's own words - in the form of his moving, eloquent letters and poems - to create a searing portrait of his short but meaningful life.
Loren King - Boston Globe
It is pure hagiography.
Ernest Hardy - Village Voice
You may prefer spending your money on the book.
Tirdad Derakhshani - Philadelphia Inquirer
Doesn't give much more than a cursory sense of what Yonathan Netanyahu was like as a person.
Lou Lumenick - New York Post
A moving tribute to an Israeli military hero.
Phil Hall - Film Threat
For the most part, documentarians Jonathan Gruber and Ari Daniel Pinchot do this potent story justice.
Peter Keough - Boston Phoenix

Roger Moore - McClatchy-Tribune News Service
Never explains why, exactly, Israel embraced this dead soldier so tightly.
Rafer Guzman - Newsday
The documentary is briskly paced, often compelling, but a little soft, as it succumbs to hero worship.
Chuck Bowen - Slant Magazine
Stirring doc about one of Israel's great heroes, known particularly for rescuing hostages at Entebbe airport in Uganda.
Harvey S. Karten - Compuserve
Thoughtful and stirring.
