Catch a Fire

Catch a Fire ★★½ 2006 (PG-13)

Fierce political drama centering on the Apartheid-era terrorism in South Africa during the early ’80s. Patrick Chamusso (Luke) is an unassuming oil refinery foreman wrongly accused, imprisoned, and tortured for a plant bombing. The injustice transforms the apolitical worker into a radicalized insurgent, who then carries out his own successful sabotage mission. Robbins plays the Security Branch Colonel on Chamusso's case. A decent script and good performances, but the dated material lacks a sense of urgency and importance. 101m/C DVD . US GB SA Derek Luke, Tim Robbins, Bonnie Henna, Mncedisi Shabangu, Malcolm Purkey; D: Phillip Noyce; W: Shawn Slovo; C: Ron Fortunato, Garry Phillips; M: Philip Miller

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
