About the Movie
Hilarious, gritty and fully loaded with intense action, Cat Run stars Paz Vega (Spanglish) as a high-end call girl on the run for her life. With key evidence to the scandalous government cover-up of a shockingly horrific crime, she must rely on two bumbling private detectives (Scott Mechlowicz, Alphonso McAuley) to be her unlikely protectors from a deadly combination of the Mob, a corrupt US senator and a ruthlessly sadistic female assassin (Janet McTeer, Tumbleweeds) – all of whom will stop at nothing to hide the truth. This stylish, sexy, fast-moving action thrill ride is directed by John Stockwell (Crazy/Beautiful).

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: An incoherent hybrid of buddy movie, "Girls Gone Wild" episode and James Bond spoof that employs cheap cinematic tricks like multiple split screens for no apparent purpose.
Rotten: If you can't dazzle 'em with brilliance, baffle 'em with genre baloney -- and enough shoplifted visual trickery to fill Quentin Tarantino's kitchen sink.
Rotten: It's easy to feel sucked into some kind of time warp back to the heyday of late-'90s post-Tarantino crime thrillers, cut-rate knockoffs filled with casually cartoonish violence, quippy patter, overtly flash filmmaking and incongruous pop tunes.
Rotten: A brazenly efficient and articulate female assassin nearly worthy of a Tarantino or Coen Brothers movie sticks out from amidst the schlocky criminal muck of Cat Run, a self-consciously sleazy comic crime saga composed of facetious elements.
Deserves better than 15%!
This is a fun film to watch, with a really great cast seemingly made for these roles. Was this movie going to have a real shot at the Best Picture Oscar? Unfortunately, no. But, does it have to to be considered entertaining? Definitely not! Unplug any lofty, art house airs and just have fun with it! There are plenty of laughs, a good dose of action, and some quality scenery (both of the human and architecture variety). All in all, this movie is deserving of a far higher grade!
