I went into this movie as a not expecting much - but hoping to be entertained and I was. The movie was bright, colorful and camp as Christmas.
Like the other reviewers said - it has nothing to do with the comic lore - but if you can get past that and want to see a cheesy super "hero" movie - then go for it.
I had a good time and sometimes that's all you want from a movie.
Berry plays Patience Phillips, a pretty, but less-than-glamorous advertising artist who works for a major cosmetics company, ruled over by a tyrannical CEO and his equally ruthless wife, the former spokes model for their products. When Patience mistakenly overhears the corporate bigwigs discussing the fact that one of their best-selling creams is causing women to become seriously ill, she is dutifully murdered by a couple of the boss' henchmen. However, all is not lost for Patience, for, unbeknownst to her, she has been chosen to receive the special gift of reincarnation in the form of a cat woman who will no longer be subject to the laws of either nature or society.
The best parts of "Catwoman" involve Patience's incrementally becoming more and more catlike in her attitude and demeanor, and her slowly dawning realization of what is happening to her. It takes awhile for her to accept this surprising turn of events, but, when she does, she becomes, quite literally, a new woman, bold, self-confident and willing to take on the oppressors and evildoers in our society. Patience is paired up with an attractive police officer (apparently the only one ever on duty in that city), who gradually comes to realize who and what she is as well.Read more ›
This film was extremely entertaining. Sure, it has one or two moments of ridicule, but overall it's a film no super-hero fan should miss. Pitof did a great job of making the film flow smoothly. The scene transitions are fresh and interesting, the CG effects are used at just the right times and the soundtrack was integrated brilliantly. This is the first time that Catwoman actually has cat-like behaviour (not just a sexy woman in a tight black outfit).
Halle Berry plays Catwoman very well. A huge majority of the stunts were done by her, the fighting and whip art is all her and she does it all wonderfully. The catsuit is a bit unorthodox, but if you just go with it, it's really not that bad. You could say it's the latest incarnation of Catwoman since she's never been the same from the moment she appeared in Batman comic books. Another welcome surprise is Sharon Stone. She looks amazing! Her acting, I'd say, is up to par with the rest of her stuff (come on, she's never been that great of an actress). I'd compare it to Basic Instinct. And it's nice to see her in a villainous role again. Ben Bratt's character kinda gets in the way. Nothing too special about him really.
The plot is typical DC comics super-hero film plot. Rich, powerful people trying to pull off an exaggerated and unrealistic plan in order to be even more rich. That's how super-hero films always were, so get used to it. As cheesy as it sounds, it works! At the end of it all, I found that there wasn't one scene I wasn't interested it.Read more ›
Update: I had 1 helpful (thank you for the vote), and 1 not helpful. When reviewing movies, I try to say something brief about them as IMDB.com is a great source for reviews, so unless I have a complaint about delivery time, not being as promised, or a totally terrible film, then I just leave it for people to checkout IMDB for a full, detailed review.
