In a mystical twist of fate, she is transformed into a woman with the strength, speed, agility and ultra-keen senses of a cat.

I have a secret. A dark, troubling secret which I must unburden myself of. You see, gentle reader, I have seen Catwoman. And enjoyed it. I know, I know, it doesn't do to confess to such a thing in polite company. Suggest that I had taken leave of my senses and my only response is a shrug and a smile. Yet, I say, I enjoyed Catwoman. And not in that oh-so-ironic 'so bad it's good' way either. No, I liked it in the 'well I thought that was rather good, actually' kind of way. Which is particularly worrying, because if there is one thing that the world and his wife can <more>
agree on, it is that Catwoman is this year's shoe in for a golden turkey award excepting 'Thunderbirds' and 'the Chronicles of Riddick' of course . I, however, found it to be a fun ride, full of good, schlocky moments, some nice action and boasting a confident visual style and a performance from Halle Berry which falls just the right side of parody. Oh, and the much-derided catsuit definitely gets my vote. I also thought the pairing with Benjamin Bratt worked a treat and Sharon Stone made a satisfying villain. In short, plenty to enjoy.Naturally, until now, I have been careful to keep this strangely positive reaction to myself. In fact I was so disturbed by my feelings for the movie that I decided to see it again just to make sure I had not missed any of the innumerable horrors the reviews had promised. The second time, to my astonishment, it seemed an even better movie than the first. A few details had initially bothered me. While, for example, some of the special effects worked really well the transformation scene, Catwoman sliding between two buildings, or tumbling out of one in graceful slo-mo , some didn't. But on second viewing I was surprised to find all these details seemed somehow better integrated into the movie as a whole. I am now thinking of seeing the movie for a third time, but in a decidedly more relaxed frame of mind. Well, I have heard of people that have seen Catwoman up to seven times. Are we all mad? Perhaps so. But I guess we might as well enjoy it. It would be such a shame not to.
Patience Phillips Halle Berry is a visual artist who is stuck working in the advertising division of a large beauty product manufacturer, Hedare. When she acquires information that could potentially put the company out of business, they try to dispose of her. Because she had previously, unwittingly passed a "test", however, she is saved by a group of cats and transformed into a Catwoman.First, let me note that I loved this film. It's a 10 out of 10 for me. Since I'm well aware that most critics, professional and amateur alike, have trashed this film, I'll focus on why <more>
I thought it was so good. Maybe this will help some new viewers consider giving it a look, and possibly encourage some reevaluation by those who have already seen the film.The script immediately drew me into the film, and although I'm male, I identified with Patience. I'm also a visual artist. I have also worked for a company similar to Hedare in the past although a much smaller and less nefarious beauty product company . I lived in an apartment that looked, on the outside, almost exactly the same as Patience's apartment complex. I also had neighbors who night after night played loud music or television until three or four a.m., while I first tried to block out the sound in any way that I could, then asked politely for them to turn the music down, and so on, until I finally called the cops on them so I could get some sleep.Not that I need to identify with a character to like a film, but that made this one have extra resonance with me in the beginning. Additionally, I was immediately drawn in by the fantastic cinematography and set design. Those kinds of things are just as important in a movie as the story is. Film is a visual and aural artform. The whole package is important. Creative, attractive visuals such as those in Catwoman are part of the package.The script, including the subtexts, worked well for me. Catwoman is a film about discovering identities, peeling away literal and metaphorical masks, and the difference between various stages of public versus private "faces". That the plot is centered on a beauty product manufacturer, then, is perfect. These themes permeate every aspect of the film. For example, Tom Lone Benjamin Bratt is continually peeling away the appearances of Patience, throughout the length of the film, and Patience is doing the same for herself--discovering her "true self". I can't think of a scene that doesn't touch on this theme in some way. That's very clever and thought-provoking scriptwriting, and it doesn't end there. There are also themes about femininity cleverly woven through the film, for example.I thought the cast did a fantastic job. Berry is great as a Catwoman, and subtly referenced most of the previous screen Catwomen. She also incorporated a lot of crafty cat-like behavior. I enjoyed the supporting cast, especially Alex Borstein as Patience's friend, Sally. The effects worked well for me, and at times they were also very subtle and clever, such as Catwoman's whip representing a tail in many shots most of this was achieved via digital effects . I was also impressed with the creativity and different approach of many of the fight scenes. It was nice to see Brazilian martial arts incorporated for a change.Some of the negative criticism probably stems from a kind of purism that is disproportionately found among comic book fans when it comes to comic book films. I'm not much of a purist, but in any event, for anyone paying close attention, you'd note that Berry's character isn't supposed to be Selina Kyle. In the mythology of as presented here, "Catwoman" isn't a lone token, but a type. Patience is just another instantiation of a long line of catwomen. So departures from previous portrayals of Selina Kyle aren't relevant, even if we believed that filmmakers were obligated in some way to previous depictions of the "same" fictional characters which I don't believe, not being a purist .Catwoman is worth a second chance if you can leave some of your preconceptions at the door and if you're prepared to think a bit about a comic book film.
Don't be a puppet of the critics, see it for yourself first. (by bedshapedboy1986)
After reading some horrendous and I mean really, really bad reviews of 'Catwoman', I was definitely considering giving it a miss . I have to say that after having seen it, I am absolutely at a loss to words as to why the critics have mauled it so doggedly, and in my opinion unfairly. Were we watching the same film? What was so bad about it? Sure so the plot was on the thin side and the dialogue was highly camp, but other than that I can't see what has provoked the spewing of critical vomit all over this film. Halle Berry makes an adorable Patience, and displays her vulnerability <more>
believably and effectively. On the other hand, she really sexes up the screen as Catwoman with the witty one-liners, the hot costume and the raunchy whip cracking. Once again Halle has displayed her versatility.This film is called Catwoman, the name should explain itself. I don't understand why people are ripping it to shreds or calling it laughable, e.g. as in the way Patience acts becoming Catwoman, i.e. the catnip incident once , the hissing at dogs once , the tuna once, which I found to be amusing , the prancing around. What exactly did you expect her to do? How else do you act like a cat? How else does a human gain feline tendencies? Got any better ideas? I didn't think so. Yet we don't rip Toby Maguire to shreds when he shoots web from his arms yeah like THAT makes sense. There is clearly a double standard approach adopted by some critics, who contradict themselves more then they'd care to admit. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy Spiderman as well as this.This not brain food and you don't have to evaluate your life after it but hey, people need that once in a while. It's a fun movie... The CGI was NOT bad, sure it was obvious at times that it wasn't Halle but for the most part it was done to a high standard. Let's be honest here and give credit where credit is due the cinematography is superb. It has such a visual allure, a dark, rich atmospheric look, and it is almost sexy to look at. The camera work is very original looking, kudos to Pitof, am I the first person to actually praise him? I think so. The scene where the Egyptian Mau brings Patience back to life is beautiful and picturesque. The music creates an epic mood.Sharon was fun to watch as the 'past it', shallow, bitchy Laurel Hedare. Alex Borstein shined as Patience's best friend and Benjamin Bratt did the best that he could with what he was given as dialogue. Lambert Wilson plays his part, in the usual camp style, but does it to perfection. All in all the acting is not bad, and unless somebody has a personal vendetta against Halle Berry, it can't be said that she didn't put her all into the part. She was sizzling as Catwoman. One critic in particular said that she looked "as sexy as a hairball in the outfit". Either a jealous woman or a man with terrible taste in women must have written that. Halle has undeniable sex appeal in the part. The soundtrack is typical summer movie fare with the usual dramatic theme song, mixed with the current popular styles, hip-hop, r'n'b. This is after all a film that has to appeal to a teenage audience. The action scenes are exciting and well executed. The ending is suitably over the top but still entertaining. One scene that I thought was ridiculous was the basketball scene and some of the dialogue could have been much better, however the positives weigh out the negatives for me.This is no Citizen Kane or Pulp Fiction but its no Gigli or Swept Away either. I have seen way worse comic book movies. Daredevil, Hell Boy and undoubtedly Hulk were worse than Catwoman. It is, on no level one of the worst films ever made. What were people thinking writing that? I went in with the lowest expectations possible for Catwoman and came out of the theatre having seen a supremely entertaining, undeniably above average film. Critics should be ashamed of themselves and audiences should not be puppets. This is worth seeing. There has been a 'Let's jump on the bandwagon' attitude regarding this film. One person bashes it and suddenly everybody does. I'm glad I went to see this film so I could make up my own mind regarding it. I usually do agree with critics but on this one, I beg to differ. Everybody is entitled to an opinion, you might not like mine, and I might not like yours but there is no need to be downright nasty and unfair when reviewing something. There is such a thing as being balanced. Oh and before people start complaining about the absence of Selina Kyle, and Gotham city, who cares, life is too short.So if you want to some light, leave your brain at the door entertainment, go to see Catwoman. If you want to see a high drama Oscar category film, go to see something else. It's fun, sexy action-packed, camp, stylish summer fare. It is a step above the usual Hollywood fare in the style stakes. Pitof shows a typically stylish French attitude. Halle Berry does herself proud. If you want to be a gullible puppet, believe the 'we're failed artists', overly critical, intellectually snobby critics. I don't really care if that seems like a generalisation because it is most likely true. I bet many of them haven't even seen it. See it for yourself, and make up your own mind. I look forward to a sequel ..
What's the Problem? No Cursing or No Feline innuendo? Spoiler haters, beware! (by AirBourne_Bds)
I think that's what everyone expected after Danny DeVito's snide remarks in "Batman Returns," certainly everyone expected something Pfeiffer-esque after that same movie or along the lines of Batman's Animated Series on the Warner Channel... I think this movie is more along the lines of John Byrne's "Man Of Steel" or Frank Miller's "Dark Knight Returns" this is a re-telling of a classic story! OK, no Selina and a reference to the Egyptian Cat God, Bast... You know what? Damn Cool! What was not cool was the costume she ended up wearing, the <more>
uniform she wore after trashing the apartment was WAY better and the make-up just SO! Should've left it that way!! Ben Bratt as her Batman-ish love/rival was smooth and Lambert Wilson as another Merovingian cuckolder was a pleasant distraction - Sharon Stone was nearly unrecognizable, she really could use some Beau-line herself!! As a villain it's a pity she won't be returning - mistake with Nicholson's Joker in Burton's "Batman," perhaps the film needed Prince for the soundtrack again? Ophelia Powers as a previous Catwoman who's retiring was not dealt with sufficiently, and will there be a sequel now?? As for cats hating water, not necessarily, I have 8 and 3 love to get wet! They also like french fries and corned beef as much as tuna or sushi! So the writers need to pursue their feline studies a bit more! But the animation was great, don't let anyone fool ya, do you really expect Halle or any sane stunt person to leap or glide like that? I hope it was used for the traffic scenes too! I hope there is more from Halle, although Angelina Jolie as Catwoman had potential but Halle sunk her claws in it and I hope she has 9 lives with it!
I don't care what the critics say and before anyone accuses me of never having read the comics, I have. And hey, it's not true to the books, but I don't care, I think it's a great movie. It was slick and well done. The villains were suitably campy comic book villains; Halle Berry lit up the screen in her portrayal of both Catwoman and Patience. The filming was great and the whole look of the movie invoked a sort of comic book type picture. The stunts were great, and even if the story is a tad weak, it's a great movie to look at. And to those who say the suit is all wrong, <more>
just look at how good it looks on Berry, I don't think there'll be many arguments there. The chemistry between Bratt and Berry was fantastic, especially in the basketball scene . My only complaint was that Halle cut her gorgeous curls off!
I think that the movie is interesting. I'm I understand that all those comic-freaks cry out loud that the story doesn't take place in Gotham and so on, but normal people don't care about such small things.The film is fast, funny, nicely directed and Halle Berry is awesome. she is simply brilliant - beautiful, sexy and funny. Kudos for Halle!!! It's nice to see Lambert Wilson in an evil guy role again and Sharon stone finally plays good in this movie. Also I would like to stress out that the music is very good and catching.Summarizing Catwoman is a far better movie than <more>
Daredevil, Hulk, Batman Forever, Batman and Robin.I would love to see a sequel of that film.
I have read so much about this movie, and as i sat down to watch it, i didn't expect much, but as i watched it, it was just like any other comic book movie, lots of colour and over the top acting, but this film had a bonus which is Halle Berry , i mean whats not to like, there was nothing wrong with her acting, with anyones acting really i mean its not Hamlet after all, and i got to see Halle in a cool leather outfit purring like a cat, i mean mmmmmmmmmm. I really enjoyed this film, i mean compared to the batman movies batman begins not included Cat Woman was a master piece, good FX <more>
and as good as most super hero story lines. When i sit down to watch a comic book movie , i expect action and lots of fun, which is what i got, so all you nah sayers out there, get a grip.
First of all although I think it was incredibly Policicly Correct to create a African American Catwoman, at least they created a new character. This would have gotten the noose so fast if Halle Berry was suppose to be Selina Kyle. But this works, she's almost like the Ertha Kitt from Season 3 of the original Batman series. That's what I like. The script is good, the story is good, the cast is good. Everything is pretty descent. Except, the Police chasing after her, what is this "Black Scorpion" when the Police always trying to catch the vigilante? Also, what city is this, I <more>
don't remember if they ever said. But all and all a pretty good movie worthy of 8 STARS.
I grew up watching this movie and loving it as well, so it was quite a surprise reading all the hatful and derrogatory comments that it had. When watching this film you have to come in won't the right mindset, you can't expect it to be accurate in terms of the comics or you will be disappointed. This movie is not dark or serious, it's fun which in turn makes it entertaining. Cat Woman, in this film, is spontaneous, witty, and overall weird. However it makes sense that the character behaves in such a way. From a realistic point of view, if one were to be magically revived by cats, <more>
they're bound to experience some odd alterationa in their personality and actions. In any case, if you plan to watch this movie don't go in expecting comic book accuracy, but instead expect and entertaining quirky action flick and you'll probably enjoy it.
