CAT CITY a thumbs up!
10 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From the chilling opening scene of CAT CITY to the surprising, uneasy yet satisfying final scene, this 90-minute thriller takes you on a suspenseful ride of greed, love and jealousy with millions of dollars at stake.

Starring Rebecca Pidgeon, Julian Sands, Brian Dennehy, Alano Massi and Shawn Huff, director Brent Huff, who co-wrote the screenplay with William Shockley and Douglas L. Walton, keep you wondering how this mix of murder, deceit and revenge turns out.

CAT CITY, which stands for Cathedral City in California, is the setting for the film amidst its towering desert windmills. Nick Compton (Julian Sands) swings a development and real estate arrangement for the supposed Cathedral City Casino with his lawyer (Shawn Huff) that includes an underhanded senator.

In the meantime, Nick's wife Vicki (Rebecca Pidgeon) hires a detective (Brian Dennehy) only to discover that Nick has more than one shady transaction in the works. When the casino deal goes south, investor Vance Roland (Alano Massi) wants his money back at any cost. The film includes adult situations with some profanity and violence.

See the movie. I give it a thumbs up.
