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.
Fresh: Catch a Fire is confident enough to depict the battle from all sides.
Fresh: Noyce's straightforward, almost documentary style is especially effective, considering that so many incidents happened pretty much the way they're portrayed.
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.
Such a great movie!
A four star movie.
