I loved it! Best version I've seen.
We went and all of the friends in our group enjoyed Cats immensely. Some had seen the play and some hadn't, but all found it beautiful and entertaining. Quality dance and acting performances with a whimsical plot for the imagination. A very fun time together! We all recommend it!
I liked it all
I wanna see it again.
The copy I saw had incredible acting.
Amazing and entertaining movie. People need to read the story of Cats.
young children might like the visual and musical aspect only because they don't understand the sexual goings on in the movie not that I would want to expose my children to this . real trash hidden in plain view.
I read the 5 star reviews and am wondering what movie these people watched. the one I watched had bad acting and little dialog . the singing was Ok . the rest of the movie was horny cats doing some kind of trendy performance art. Really not for children , tasteless at best
Still the best movie out there.
kind of boring , not at all like the musical ,
The plot was so pertinent to the choices we as a society are presented with daily. Ultimately, we see that redemption and forgiveness are always possible. The cast did an excellent job: Dame Judi, Idris, Jennifer, Taylor . . . Everyone was fantastic! I can’t understand where the bad press came from. Anyone and everyone that is “woke”, loved this movie.
Voices! Music! Dancing!! Staging! Costumes! Choreography... You name it!! So where did the bad hype come from???
Surreal fun with great performances.
Bizarre and jagged. I'll gladly pay double what I paid for admission to whoever lets the dogs out.
A phenomenal achievement! When Taylor Swift sang "Memory" she brought the house down!
Kinda boring. Jennifer Hudson sings beautifully but makes no effort to move like a feline. The best part was trying to identify the actors, but couldn’t figure out which was played by Taylor Swift
What's not to love? Beautiful music ,great special effects, pure entertainment. Wonderful dancing, fantastic costumes.
Loved it - Jennifer Hudson was fantastic - she made me cry when she sang Memories- lots of comical moments too. Highly recommend.
Not great, but very entertaining. Fantastic cast.
Ballet by Francisca Hayward was amazing and the Memories song was awesome.
wonderful costuming, dancing, makeup......all made for a fabulous show. Better than the play in that you could see everything up close. The actors portrayed the "cat" movements so well. A delight for all!
This is better that the play
just like the play
the whole thing
shoetimes version is much better
The movie was very good and creative. LOVE IT!!!
I have seen the Broadway production and appreciate this movie is that ....a movie. That said, it was delightful. I saw the show with my daughter and granddaughter and we thoroughly enjoyed the movie. The singing was great, dancing incredible and costumes creatively real. There was humour, there was sadness....Each main cat has its own story just as real cats do....and each cat was loveable. Movie did not have to rely on technology alone to be great.
There hasn't been a movie musical this cheery and fun since Rhinestone.
Critics don't have imagination or they really hate cats. The singing was beautiful, costumes creative and adorable, great acting. I loved the movie as much as I had the play.
Bizarre production of a group of cats who are in a cult or something and they're supposed to be stray cats even most of them are far fat to be strays and they pick one of them to be jellied up or something. It was incomprehensible and the songs were lame.
Many would find this movie tiring but I loved the music and acting. It was different!
Meouch,, anyone giving this more than 1 star has been paid to do so,,
If this film is so good with all the fake 5 star reviews then why did it bomb embarrassingly in the theatres? Think about that before you believe a five star reviewer.
Worst movie. We walked out not even half over
Having seen the Broadway show 3 times, I was glad to see the movie to get the full story and words to the songs...it was just as the Broadway show was, at least to my memory. The cat suits were furry compared to the leotard ones,,,some voices were not strong but I truly enjoyed the movie very much...I went in very cynical after reading and hearing but I always need to see for myself and we were not disappointed. I hope more people who have seen the Broadway version, go to see it..It would be a shame to see it lose money.
Just remember...cats are not dogs! Lotsa talent displayed by actors and actresses.
Love it! Great cast and performance. Don’t understand all the negative reviews. I think maybe it helps to know what “Cats” the original musical is about to really appreciate this movie?
So, as seen by ratings you will either love it or hate it andI did not care for it.
Look at all these Auto Bots with there raving reviewz , if only the box office earnings reflected your praise
Enjoyed this movie so much! It definitely is interesting and entertaining. I went in knowing it was fantasy and a musical about singing cats and that there was dancing. Thats what it is ... plus the costuming reflected each actor's personality somehow and the scenery and sets were wonderful. Everything went together very well. I saw no glitches with CGI. Totally ejoyed it. Would go again to see what I missed ... sorta like the Star Wars movies, so much goes on I know I missed some good stuff.
Don't know where the negative reviews are coming from, but my family and I loved, loved, loved this movie. I had never seen the play, but my wife had decades ago. My kids loved the spectacular cinematography and costumes. It was thoroughly enjoyable!
The negative reviews are seriously way over-blown. I enjoyed the entire film and came as a newbie to CATS, not knowing the story, music, or previous stage versions. It satisfied my short attention span for the entire movie.
This movie is so good! I love the message that it sends. No one wants to be rejected, or an outcast. For those who say its "strange" you missed the message.
Keep in mind this is a live Broadway show captured on film with a story. Superstar casting with Taylor Swift and Jennifer Hudson. Stage and costumes quite creative. Different and entertaining.
Better movie than reviewed. CGI poor. Hooper should never work again, but the movie is worth the cost of admission. If you can ignore the bad CGI, most of the movie is enjoyable.
I am a fan of the stage production and had low expectations going into the movie, but I came out having really enjoyed it! The performances were great and the choreography was beautiful. Don't knock this movie until you've seen it!
