Though John Stockwell's action comedy is shamelessly derivative, his enthusiastic cast propels it much further than it should go.

Made for today it just is more chaotic, has more nudity, and had more violence including some slightly nauseating scenes of torture. Otherwise the film is funny and fun, a fast, entertaining ride.

This movie is fiercely uneven, feeling like two different movies got drunk and had a sloppy love child that now no one wants.

A loud, ugly and terrible movie that doesn't skillfully juggle its various elements; it throws them violently at your face and calls it edge.

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.

The nicest thing to be said about Cat Run might be that it doesn't know what kind of movie it wants to become.

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.

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.

Words like "smug," "derivative," and "shallow" could all be fairly applied to the film, but as a piece of late-night exploitation, it delivers the violence and nudity with the regularity of an IV drip, and some familiar faces in the cast help class it up.

Bullets, babes, perverts, Euro travel, secret documents, hitmen, car bombs, and testicular torture. Oh my.

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.

A third-generation Tarantino rip-off distinguished only by its equal-opportunity nudity.

Director John Stockwell uses split screens, a blaxploitation soundtrack, and hammy, Get Smart sound effects to put some old-school spring in Cat Run's step. It makes for an odd combination with the film's ecstatic, viscera-laden violence.
