Cute girls in cat suits take on a Chinese gang in order to free their kidnapped father. Good movie falters after dynamite first 15 minutes
4 June 2006 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Cat's Eye is a trio of girls who are cat burglars. They wear cat suits similar to Michelle Pfieffer in Batman returns and use a variety of gadgets like the Caped Crusader himself. Here the girls are forced to take on both the police and a Chinese crime organization in order to free their father (who many believed was dead).

Live action adaptation of a comic is, in its set pieces, very close to the top of the pile of comics on film. The opening sequence for example (which begins animated), the girls steal a painting that their father had done years before is pure bliss and joy for anyone who likes well done action sequences. Later action sequences match the manic, lets have a good time quality the film begins with and its during those wonderful sequences that the film is a joy to behold.

Unfortunately the plot and dialog get in the way slowing the film way down. At first the dialog scenes are okay as everything is put into motion but after a while it seems there is too much talk, too many twists too much weirdness and not enough action. Despite the bursts of great action my attention began to wander.

Certainly not a bad movie, its simply not the great movie that the first 15 minutes promised (6 out of 10 rating is due to that). Worth a bag of popcorn and a soda if you're an action fan (worth more if you like to watch cute girls in tight cat suits beating up bad guys). Its a rental preferably with a second feature for a full nights entertainment.
