Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The claws are out in this belated sequel to 2001's Cats & Dogs, as deranged and hairless moggy Kitty Galore seeks revenge on humans for the loss of her home by hatching a dastardly plan to turn the world's dogs against humankind. But disgraced police canine Diggs and his pals join forces with their former feline enemies and are soon on Kitty's trail. The plot is straight out of the James Bond case file, and the film owes much of its look and ideas to classic entries in that franchise, including a villainous sidekick akin to Jaws and Roger Moore voicing the feline equivalent of M. However, too much time is spent on the wordy script and sly tributes to other more adult films including The Silence of the Lambs, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and The Fly to keep youngsters entertained throughout. But thanks to improvements in CGI and a sympathetic canine lead (voiced by James Marsden), this is a slight improvement on the original, with the prize for the best voice acting going to Bette Midler, who lends Kitty a devilish rasp that's one of the joys of the film.
