This is that curious style of thriller-mystery that really hits the mark. If you like a basically 5 or 6 character film that runs the gamut of emotions, this is right up your alley. Top notch acting by all. Brian Denehey looks like hes doing just about his last role, but lets hope not. The ending is a little messy but don't forget to check the dvd extras to see the original ending. You have to get lucky to stumble upon an engrossing quirky little movie like this. Should be a blu-ray candidate. (Steer clear of "reviewers" that glance at a film for 15 minutes then attempt to report on it.)
My main problem with Cat City isn't that the story is nothing new. I rarely even expect much originality as far as plot goes with thrillers these days. However, to make such a story work the movie needs interesting characters and something to captivate the audience. I couldn't really find that in Cat City.
While it wasn't a trainwreck, I found myself often not caring what happened to the characters. Whether they were the "good guys" or the "bad guys," either way I was not attached to any. The standout, however, was the film's biggest star with ironically the smallest amount of screen time; Brian Dennehy. He played a private eye with some connection to the scheme at hand.
While I didn't hate the movie, I can't say I particularily enjoyed it. It wasn't badly put together, and the acting was decent. But again I find the problem, as I do with most of these types of movies, lying in the writing. Nothing jumped out to me. The best part of the story came at the ending, I always love a good twist ending. Sadly, many may tune out before this one even gets there.
On a side note: I'm not sure who OK'ed the DVD cover, but there were no hot fast cars and I'm pretty sure the sexy woman is not one of the actresses.

I have a big crush on Rebecca Pigeon, which is why I decided to watch this movie. The movie is worth a watch, but be prepared for a weak plot and average acting.Published 5 months ago by Wireless
