Catwoman

The onslaught of super hero films continues with one of the villains of Batman in the action, adventure crime film, Catwoman. Patience Phillips (Halle Berry) is a meek, shy artist working for a cosmetic company named Hedare Beauty. When she overhears confidential information about a faulty anti-aging product, she is caught and thrust out a refuse pipe into the water and killed (who knows, maybe she has 9 lives) then resurrected when a cat blows in her face. Over the next few days Patience is transformed into Catwoman with the strength, speed, agility and ultra keen senses of a cat. She suddenly enjoys sleeping in the rafters of her apartment and eating tuna by the can. The only thing she doesn’t do is cough up fur balls. She begins searching for the people who “killed” her efforts are hampered by a cop named Tom Lone (Benjamin Bratt) who likes Patience but is trying to arrest Catwoman. She unravels the mystery of an anti-aging product and finds her killer. She finishes a brutal catfight with the wife of the company’s president, Laurel Hedare (Sharon Stone) who has skin as hard as marble and can’t feel a thing went hit by Catwoman. I can’t go on any longer. This film is corny, hokey and the acting is melodramatic. The brightside is that it’s entertaining and the action is paced nicely throughout the movie. I was a little jealous of Catwoman’s ability to see like a cat with great night vision – I would be happy just to see in broad daylight. This film is ridiculous at times but it’s not quite at the bottom of the litter box and I’m giving it a C- rating.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
