A series of murders holds the nation in its sway and the longer the police fail to catch the murderer, the more the public begins to panic. Choi, a highly successful investigator whose methods have always held him back from promotion, senses that this case might be his last chance to make something of his career. He and his old mentor Jang agree to arrest the next best suspect as the serial killer – whatever it might cost. Just when it looks as if all the dirty tricks, dark deeds and treacherous secret deals are about to be exposed, all the stakeholders find themselves drawn deeper into the morass of questionable morals and open violation of the law. The search for the murderer begins to unite the four men, even though none are particularly interested in finding the culprit.

Allan C (kr) wrote: Throwback film to the heyday of 1990s ultra violent Quentin Tarantino ripoffs. Like most of those films, the script is full of attempts at being quirky (D.L. Hughley plays an outspoken legless man), has several overlapping stories, and treats the very gory violence with a comedic touch. The basic story is that Paz Vega, a high end escort, has some incriminating evident that a group of disparate characters are all after. Besides Hughley and Vega, Christopher McDonald (Shooter from "Happy Gilmore) is probably the next most famous of actor in the film. What Tarantino does so well in his films is that he takes a story you've seen a hundred times before and makes it the best version of that story you've ever seen. Tarantino has a very unique voice in his films, but when other filmmakers try to ape that voice, it always comes off as a pale imitation. The best films that came out of the 1990s wave of crime films had their own voice ("Out of Sight," "The Usual Suspects," "Get Shorty," etc.) and were simply unconventional crime films. "Cat Run" is unmistakably a film that's trying to ape Tarantino and suffers for it. However, what the film lacks in originality, it does make up for in enthusiasm. Director John Stockwell gets a fair amount of credit for solid direction of the many action sequences and for keeping the film moving at a brisk pace. But I do have to say that Janet McTeer as a British assassin named Helen, who looks more like a librarian than skilled killer, steals the movie. Nothing brilliant here, but if you're in the mood for an okay Tarantino knockoff, like "Love and a .45" or "Smokin' Aces" you could do worse than this one.

I've seen this movie done better before -- it's Fist of Fury, Tai Chi Master, Fist of Legend, Fearless..... But at least they're stealing from the best.The acting is superior and it feels a little more authentic at the beginning. However, it's a lot more of a soap opera drama - not surprising, but it doesn't deliver in the end. The title character disappears from the movie for like 25 minutes right before the end. Mistakes like that brought down what could've been an instant classic, but stil, it's a great movie. Yuen Biao is awesome in it. High 3.5 (3.75 is more like it which would equal a decent 7.5/10)
