About the Movie

From the Director of Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger comes Catch a Fire, an action packed journey of sabotage, corruption, alienation and murder. Academy Award® winner, Tim Robbins (Mystic River, The Shawshank Redemption), and Derek Luke (Glory Road, Friday Night Lights) star in this suspense thriller based on a true story. Set against a country in flames and two cultures at war, Catch a Fire is the gripping account of the spark that ignited a man, inspired a revolution and united a country.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Smoothly directed by Phillip Noyce, the movie relies heavily on well-staged action sequences and two gifted actors to keep its familiar tale from appearing stale. – John Hartl, Newsweek, Nov 1, 2007

Fresh: Catch a Fire is confident enough to depict the battle from all sides. – Christy Lemire, Associated Press, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Noyce's straightforward, almost documentary style is especially effective, considering that so many incidents happened pretty much the way they're portrayed. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 28, 2006

Rotten: Despite Mr. Noyce's attempt to achieve a sense of balance and restraint, the material covers an overly familiar landscape with no special insight or sense of purpose. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Jun 24, 2010
