Audience Reviews for The Cat (Lao mao)

Nothing Special about this movie, Asian Sci Fi is what I would call it, Might keep the interest of someone between the ages of 10-15. A Space Cat comes to Earth to chase away thr evil Monster from outer Space. There is a dog and cat fight in the movie that makes this movie worth watching, Also the Cat has 2 Human Type Friends, a very beautiful girl and a Old Man, Its slow in parts, good subtitles. 3 Stars
