It has been days since the release of Universal Pictures’ “Cats”, and the response has been less than optimal, to say the least.
In fact, the film is so bad that many have already labelled it as the worse film of the year, with reviews being overwhelmingly negative. One such person who has been particularly critical of the film, was Evan Rachel Wood, who left a rather savage review of the film on her Twitter account.
In a now deleted Twitter post, the 32-year-old took to her Twitter account to express her horror after seeing the adaptation last Wednesday (25th December 2019). In the post she revealed that, “#Cats is actually worse than I thought it would be. And I already thought it would be horrible. But….I am actually speechless. Why would you change the choreography? I…am SPEECHLESS,” she wrote.
The actress even replied to a comment on her post that reads, “I felt like I was on acid watching it. So utterly bizarre,” by fandom writer Eric Goldman. She responded the comment with, “Totally! Like my life is not in danger, but I feel like I’m going to die.” The reply have since garnered 9 retweets and 232 likes, at the time of writing.
Totally! Like my life is not in danger, but I feel like I’m going to die.

Woods, who is known for her role in both the “Westworld” series and as the voice of Elsa’s mother in “Frozen” and “Frozen 2”, then shifted her attention to Instagram. In her Instagram stories she said that, “I have to have an actual live reaction of this,” before shouting, “What the f**k, what the f**k, what the f**k? What? What? What… the f**k? What the f**k? Oh my god!”
Going back to Instagram today (27th December 2019), the “Westworld” star added that, “They changed all the iconic choreography. Took out 70% of the main characters. Changed the plot. I grew up in theatre. I was married to a dancer. I have massive respect for what they do, which is why this was such a letdown and missed opportunity for that community.”
Tom Hooper’s flick “Cats”, which cost around $100 million (RM414 million) to make, earned just $6.5 million (RM26.8 million) in tickets sale on its opening weekend and currently sits at only 18% on Rotten Tomatoes score, at the time of writing.
