Movie Reviews

Globe and Mail - 9/10 by James Adams This one's a nail-biter, a fast-paced, compulsively watchable political thriller.
Laramie Movie Scope - 9/10 by Robert Roten A story of bigotry, hatred, rebellion, forgiveness and finally, healing.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 9/10 by Steven Rea Luke is fine in the lead, proving that his good work in Antoine Fisher was no fluke.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 9/10 by William Arnold The film sees its characters in overly simplistic terms, with little of the perspective or ambiguity you might expect more than a decade after the end of apartheid.
Dallas Morning News - 9/10 by Carla Meyer Patrick Chamusso, the refinery foreman played by Derek Luke in Catch a Fire, brims with energy, whether he's dancing to a Donna Summer song or coaching the local youth soccer team.
Ebert & Roeper - 9/10 by Richard Roeper [The film is] complex. It's rich. I think it's well-done.
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.
E! Online - 9/10 by Matt Stevens Director Phillip Noyce clearly knows how to integrate the politics and the personal without resorting to didacticism or sentimentalism.
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.
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.
