Movie Reviews

Globe and Mail - 9/10 by James Adams This one's a nail-biter, a fast-paced, compulsively watchable political thriller.
Film Scouts - 9/10 by Jason Gorber ...as the credits rolled, I did hope for more.
Christian Science Monitor - 9/10 by Peter Rainer Philip Noyce's anti-apartheid drama is tense and thoughtful.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 9/10 by Steven Rea Luke is fine in the lead, proving that his good work in Antoine Fisher was no fluke.
Ozus' World Movie Reviews - 9/10 by Dennis Schwartz Though it was earnest in its heartfelt message, the film was not remarkable enough to make it memorable.
FilmStew.com - 9/10 by Brent Simon This isn't a movie of stark, black-and-white villainy. Instead, you get a real sense of the controlling impulses that power breeds.
Los Angeles Daily News - 9/10 by Bob Strauss [Derek] Luke, best-known for his headlining role in Antwone Fisher, plays Chamusso with grace and intelligence, but never quite locates his emotional mutation from get-along guy to hard-core revolutionary.
Detroit News - 9/10 by Tom Long Catch a Fire blurs the distinction between labels and resonates through today's global conflicts. More importantly, the film offers a taste of the desperation and fear behind the restrictions and the cruelty that whites forced on blacks.
Denver Rocky Mountain News - 9/10 by Robert Denerstein Catch a Fire may not substantially expand our understanding of the apartheid era, but the look and feel of South Africa pervade this film, giving it enough vibrancy and impact to compensate for what feels familiar.
Flick Filosopher - 9/10 by MaryAnn Johanson When someone makes a movie, a quarter of a century from now, about the American occupation of Iraq, it's going to look like Catch a Fire, and it's going to be enraging.
Monsters and Critics - 9/10 by Ron Wilkinson The rough trip of South African anti-apartheid hero Patrick Chamusso from apolitical worker to galvanized revolutionary and the brutal Afrikaner regime that tried to contain him.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 8/10 by Rick Groen Catch a Fire paints the period with a double-sided brush that gives yesterday its due and puts today on notice.
