Another comic book spin off film gone terribly wrong
This film just reeks. Based off the popular comic book heroine of D.C. Comics. Warner Brothers has introduced a new Catwoman and completely disregards all of the character's history. I know many comic book fans might get upset about the whole origin changing bit, but I thought the origin seemed kind of cool in the movie. Especially, how they were able to link it to Egyptian cats.
Even though, I liked the, "Batman Returns" Catwoman, this one seemed to give the character a bit more of a back story. At least, the film gave a good reason why Catwoman was brought back to life; instead of the dark mysterious resurection of "Batman Returns." Plus, Halle Berry looked so hot in that Catwoman outfit. However, what's bad about this movie?
Well, everything else. The entire story for this film (except Catwoman's new origin) was just awful. Plus, none of this is helped when you have cliched acting and mediocre special effects. In the film, Felicity Price/Catwoman (Halle Berry) is killed off after she finds out about some make up that deforms womens' skin after using it. Once spotted they order to have her killed. (Sarcasticly) Who knew the make up industry could be like the mafia. After this, she becomes catwoman after this Egyptian cat brings her back, and she vows revenge. You knew that Catwoman was going to seduce her love interest in the film and kick his ***. And for god's sake, out of all the villains in D.C. Comics, the best villain the writers could think of was some broad with hardened skin and a corrupt make up industry.
Oh well, hopefully, in the new Batman movie series, Catwoman will get a better role. Anyway, unless you want to see Halle Berry in tight revealing spandex, then I suggest you stay away from this one.
