The critical consensus

Angry, impassionate filmmaking that demands - and deserves - serious answers.

****(*)David Parkinson, Empire Online, 18/02/2013

Insightful and quietly angry.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 21/02/2013

The naked greed of "Big Pharma" still hangs over the film like a poison cloud.

***(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 21/02/2013

A slightly dry, yet solid reportage on a humanitarian disgrace.

***(*)(*)Mike McCahill, The Guardian, 21/02/2013

It is the emphasis on cold, hard facts that makes Fire In The Blood so warmly compelling.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 22/02/2013

The film is a testament to human decency and a damning indictment of laissez-faire capitalism.

Philip French, The Observer, 24/02/2013
