CATS * (Theatrical Release China 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Note: This is not the live theater movie 2019 Cats directed by Tom Hooper.

Cats—2018 animated movie directed by Gary Wang—needs character development to engage its audience. The loss of connectivity early in the movie adds to the general question, ‘Why did this movie need to be made?’ The animation does not reflect current techniques available to animated movie makers. The movie is the third attempt by Director Gary Wang to enter the professional market. It will be interesting to see his next attempt’s improvement over this film.

Storyline

An adventuresome son goes to Peachtopia and a reticent father needs to acquire courage to follow.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Gary Wang for directing effort. Thank you to Producers Lu Xi and Zhang Xuyang for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Goat (Voice of Brittany Curran), Biggie (Voice of Nick Guerra), Goat (Voice of Jason Kesser), and Cape (Voice of Nicole Tompkins).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It might work for a child. But for adult/child shares it may be better to watch The Secret Life of PetsAristocats (1970 animated version), or Lady and The Tramp (1955 animated version).

*Also known as Cats and Peachtopia
