Movie Reviews

Rotten Tomatoes - 9/10 by Jen Yamato The film champions its "terrorist" and vilifies its family man-turned-desperate lawman, and argues that when the lines between good and bad are forever blurred, forgiveness is mankind's only salvation.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 9/10 by Steven Rea Luke is fine in the lead, proving that his good work in Antoine Fisher was no fluke.
I.E. Weekly - 9/10 by Amy Nicholson Noyce is now the favorite filmmaker of your local Amnesty International
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.
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.
Globe and Mail - 9/10 by James Adams This one's a nail-biter, a fast-paced, compulsively watchable political thriller.
Premiere - 8/10 by Ethan Alter Right off the bat, Catch a Fire distinguishes itself from other recent international productions about Africa (including The Constant Gardener and The Last King of Scotland) in that it is actually told from an African perspective.
Oregonian - 8/10 by Shawn Levy Whatever you make of the film's politics, Luke makes a vivid impression in his most substantial role since Antwone Fisher, and Robbins resists the temptation to make the thinly written Vos a villainous caricature.
Village Voice - 8/10 by Robert Wilonsky It's the story of Patrick Chamusso, who intended no harm till harm was done to him. Fact is, he could be just about anyone anywhere -- South Africa, the Middle East, right next door.
