Cat Run is a 2011 action-comedy movie that was directed by John Stockwell. The movie stars Paz Vega, Janet McTeer, and Christopher McDonald in leading roles. The film's plot is centered around two wannabe detectives who become embroiled in a wild adventure when they stumble upon a valuable piece of evidence in a murder case. The movie opens in the vibrant city of Seattle, where two best friends Julian and Anthony (Vega and Alphonso McAuley) have set up their own detective agency, hoping to make a difference. However, they often find themselves struggling to find clients, as they are still relatively new in the business.

Their fortunes soon change when a beautiful and mysterious woman, Catalina Rodriguez (Vega), walks into their office, asking for their help in finding her father, who has been missing for several weeks. The two friends are intrigued by her story and immediately take the case. However, things quickly go awry as they soon find themselves in the middle of a high stakes murder investigation.

As Julian and Anthony pursue leads, they accidentally stumble upon evidence linking a powerful US senator David Kreiger (McDonald) to the crime. The discovery puts their lives in danger, and soon they are being hunted both by the senator's henchmen and the local police. With Catalina in tow, the trio must now work together to clear their names and bring the culprits to justice.

Paz Vega's performance as Catalina is standout. She is sexy, confident, and deadly, and completely steals the show. Her character's secrets add depth and intrigue to the plot, keeping the audience engaged throughout the movie.

Janet McTeer, playing Kreiger's fierce and ruthless hired killer, is equally impressive. Her dynamic performance adds a level of intensity to the chase scenes, keeping the tension high.

The action sequences are well choreographed and executed, with fast-paced car chases, shootouts, and hand-to-hand combat. They often run a little long for the sake of suspense, but the music is upbeat enough to keep things interesting.

The movie does have some limitations in terms of character development, which can be frustrating at times. Some of the minor characters, such as the local police chief, are simply caricatures that add little to the plot. However, the main characters are likable and well written, providing a solid foundation for the story.

The cinematography in Cat Run is gorgeous. The vibrant colors and vivid details perfectly capture the beauty of the Seattle skyline, while the numerous handheld shots make the action scenes feel raw and intense.

Overall, Cat Run is a breath of fresh air and a blast to watch. It's an exciting and unpredictable ride that successfully blends action, comedy, and mystery genres. The movie has its flaws, but the strong performances and engaging plot keep the audience invested until the thrilling and satisfying finale.

Cat Run is a 2011 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 46 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.5 and a MetaScore of 33.
