Catwoman is probably more enjoyable than let's say The Daredevil (and does not have Ben Affleck in it :) or The Hulk. Sure there are some dumb things happening in the movie and way too much CGI, but who cares - it is only an average summer flick to be watched on some rainy Friday evening.
To summarize - it is not great but if you enjoy comic-based movies, go for it. Catwoman shouldn't be seen as a feminist movie, but as a fun film about a woman, who finds that she's more than she thought she was. The visuals were good and so was the acting. I came to the theater with no expectation and enjoyed it because of that. It's not a deep movie and it isn't trying to be. Cat lovers Enjoy! Dog Lovers, I think you'll like this movie as well. Halle is one sexy kitten and brings a fresh feel to the character of Catwoman. She does seem to borrow certain mannerisms from past actors who played Catwoman, but she also shows that she was up to the challenge and comes across with a solid performance. The camera work was a bit over done and most of the time you could tell of the computer generated images of Catwoman doing her cat like moves. Even certain fight scenes seemed a bit awkward at times. Sharon's Stone's performance could have been better, but she was playing a vengeful, ex-model, who was being tossed aside for a younger beauty. How deep can you go when your playing a shallow character to begin with? Cartoonish effects and overacting make this more corn than catnip. Shy and meek-mannered Patience Phillips (Halle Berry), working as a graphic designer for Hedare Beauty Cosmetics, is killed one night when she is caught in a waste pipe and flushed out into a river. She is brought back to life, however, by an Egyptian Mau, a temple cat sacred to the goddess Bast, that bestows upon her the speed, confidence, reflexes, and senses of a feline, turning her into the fierce and stealthy Catwoman. Although Catwoman tries to do good deeds, like saving a young boy on a broken ferris wheel, she is blamed for a string of crime sprees and is being investigated by Detective Tom Lone (Benjamin Bratt) who also happens to be falling in love with Patience. But it's when she discovers a toxic little secret about Hedcare's line of beauty cream that things really become CATastrophic. The story and screenplay were written by American screenwriters John Brancato, Michael Ferris, John Rogers, and Theresa Rebeck, although the character of Catwoman is loosely based on the Selina Kyle/Catwoman created by DC Comics' Bob Kane and Bill Finger, both of whom also created the character Batman. Catwoman's first appearance was in Batman #1 in Spring of 1940. No. Halle Berry's Catwoman is a completely different character named Patience Phillips. Selina Kyle, the Catwoman
