★★★½ review by george the beast on Letterboxd
it had it's great funny moments, unfortunatelly i think it needed some more strict dialogues, snappier i think . Keep your expectations low and you will have fun (also you can go easily to the toilet cause of the beers you will drink during the movie!')

Murder Of A Cat starred
Cabin In The Woods' Fran Kranz, Thirteen's Nikki Reed, Whiplash's J.K. Simmons, Meet The Parents' Blythe Danner, Little Miss Sunshine's Greg Kinnear, Evil Dead 2's Ted Raimi & Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift's Leonardo Nam.
it's also produced by Spider-Man director Sam Raimi.
the film is about a guy who tries to investigate the Murder of his best friend, who's well a cat, who gets killed from a Crossbow.
Fran Kranz i thought did great as the lead, he played the stoner in 2012's Cabin In The Woods, he stole that whole movie also.
J.K. Simmons was also good at playing the Sheriff who helps Fran Kranz's Clinton finding the person who murdered his cat.
Nikki Reed is one actulley i adore everytime she's on screen.
she plays this hair cutter who also has her cat missing, but then her and Fran kranz's character finds out they have the same cat.
this film is more of a comedy then a straight up thriller.
in a weird way this kind of reminded me of a lighter verison of John Wick.
where instead of the main character investigating the murder of his dog, it's the person's cat.
and Fran Kranz don't actulley kick anyone asses lol.
Greg Kinnear did good at playing this store owner who Fran Kranz's character really hates, and is a huge suspect in the murder of his cat.
the ending had obvious i admit.
just saw Murder Of A Cat in theaters, at this theater call Village East Cinema.
★★★★ review by Sam of the Night on Letterboxd
Hilarious. The much better comedy version of The Long Goodbye.
★★★½ review by WreckItDee on Letterboxd
An indelible little indie noir comedy with a parallel universe version of geek Leo Messi hooking up with a Michelle Rodriguez doppelganger, supported by indies supportive better known cast like Blythe Danner, J K Simmons and Greg Kinnear.
