It has been almost a decade since the original Cats & Dogs was released, starring such big names as Alec Baldwin and Tobey Maguire. The sequel is here at last, but with a whole new cast of characters. Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore is a feline vs canine version of James Bond. The evil villain Kitty Galore aims to take over the world, and dog leaders Butch and Diggs must put aside their natural feelings of antagonism for Catherine, a cat agent from the spy organisation Meows, and work with her to stop Galore. Although supposedly in the same vein as the original Cats & Dogs, Kitty Galore lacks much of that battle between the two species. Fans of the 2001 movie may be disappointed if they come expecting a repeat of the tension of the first film. The plot is a little predictable for today's sophisticated audiences, who expect exhilaration and surprises at the cinema. This film also lacks some of the charm and humour that made the original a sleeper hit. However, with its cute, cuddly animal characters, computer-generated imagery that make scenes spring to life and chuckle-worthy comic gags, younger viewers are certain to find this very enjoyable.
