When director Tom Hooper released the first trailer for his film Cats, a lot of people thought it was a joke. The film, like the trailer, follows the story of a few cats who are looking to change their lives. What might have been a well-executed animated film however is a CGI mishap. The film is entirely CGI rendered and is eerily unnatural to watch.
The film has big names behind it, including Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson and even Idris Elba among others but it is the execution that ruins it completely. The film is currently sitting at a terrible 16 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Peter Bradshaw of the Guardian wrote about the film saying, "The queasy fears prompted by one of the most disturbing movie trailers ever seen got realized in full in Tom Hooper’s jaw-dropping feline folly." The film is not only being hated by critics but fans too. Even fans of the cast have shied away from watching the film.
Cats are releasing in the USA on 20 December.
