Catwoman

Catwoman From the looks of French director Pitof's poorly realized effort of bringing DC Comics' "Catwoman to the big screen, it seems unlikely that a sequel for the feline superhero/villain. The ridiculous S&M tinged costume that Halle Berry struts around in is the first obvious clue that Hollywood's latest flirtation with comic book movies is something less than inspired. The scrip (by John Brancato, Michael Ferris, and John Rogers) is a dull ceremony that doesn't bother to embrace the clichés it flippantly tosses around. Patience Philips (Berry) is a wanna-be artist working as an ad designer for a cosmetics conglomerate when her employers ruthlessly murder her after she discovers the harmful effects of their new line of beauty creme. Patience is reborn as a human with feline traits, through the mystical powers of an Egyptian cat that breathes life into her pliant body. A tortured romantic relationship develops between Patience and police detective Tom Lone (Benjamin Bratt) as she vacillates between Catwoman identity and her true self. The result is a dull comic book action movie for preteens to drool over.

Rated PG-13. 101 mins. (C-) (Two Stars)
