This may not have been a "plum" of a role for such a high-caliber, beautiful actress, but Halle Berry would be good in any role. And it's not just her beauty! This fascinating woman can act!
And if she wants to play the part of a cat--or even a dog--in her next movie, I'll be first in line to buy a ticket.
Like her, I'm a native of Ohio, and we Buckeyes stick together. (Just kidding! I stick with her because I admire the total woman she has become, despite a stormy background and obstacles that would halt a lesser person dead in her tracks.)
I look forward to seeing this talented, gorgeous actress in more Oscar-winning roles and feel assured that there will be many in her bright future!
I still can't believe this Hollywood bastardization on one of my favorite female comic characters was actually green-lighted. Horrible from an action movie stand point, and just pure trash if you're a fan of the character. There are no redeeming qualities here at all. The action is yuck, the acting is yuck. Everything about this movie is just pure yuck.
CATWOMAN When I first heard about this movie I was excited to say the least, I mean Halle Berry as Catwoman who would not want to see that? So I waited to see the film wanting for it to hit theaters because up until that point every Catwoman in film, TV show, animated, and comic has been great and wonderful characters. So with that knowledge I just knew this was going to a good movie, once again Halle Berry as the Catwoman. Of course like most people … more
COME ON, YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!! This movie was so painful, Halle Berry was only in half the movie, and the other half was acted out by a poor CGI that did a pretty shoddy job of looking like Halle Berry. The story sucked, the dialogue was about as moving as a pile of puke from the dead skull of a jackrabbit. I don't know anymore, what is going on with movies? Let's talk about my boy Ben Bratt, why the hell was he even in this movie? With his smug smile, he played a sassy cop and was sleeping … more
The beautiful, voluptuous Halle Berry was perfect for this role. Who else has that special body, beauty and effortless grace. She seems more cat than woman as she slinks through this movie, enchanting us all. The graphics were great, and the storyline held my interest. A beautiful job, Miss Halle. I wish you great success in your film career. Choose your scripts carefully and you will be one of the biggest stars of the twenty-first century. I'm … more

For a certain segment of the population, the vision of Halle Berry in shredded skin-tight leather is reason enough to seeCatwoman. As Patience Philips, Berry plays a mousy graphic designer for a cosmetics company who learns a little too much about her employer's new beauty cream and gets flushed down a waste-disposal pipe. A supernatural cat brings Patience back to life and brings up a new persona from the depths of her psyche; soon she's bounding around fire escapes, cracking a whip, and getting framed for a couple of murders by a villainous ex-supermodel (Sharon Stone,Total Recall,Basic Instinct). If you're hoping for a Catwoman with bite, this is not your movie--this Catwoman rescues children from malfunctioning ferris wheels and apologizes for stealing jewels. The movie's script and visual style are as fresh as used kitty litter. Also featuring Benjamin Bratt (Miss Congeniality), and Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under).--Bret Fetzer
