Site Rating: 2 out of 10 stars

"Catwoman" starring Halle Berry and Sharon Stone was not the actresses' best work and it is due to the poor script, corny lines, bad directing and overall cheesy concept that did not live up to the comic. Warner Bros did a very poor job bringing this film to life, which led to critics everywhere pouncing on it.

Halle Berry stars as the lead Patience Phillips, a graphic artist who is shot and killed, then brought back to life by a cat. Hence the title "Catwoman." However, this film takes a detour into the occult and becomes, for lack of a better word, crazy. The lead character is into witchcraft and is possessed by a cat. Not the best message in the world.

The story line is weak, when it could have been so much better. The director failed this movie as well. He gave the actors bad direction. Not to mention, the lines are unusually catty and cliche:

Laurel Hedare: What do you want
Patience Phillisp: Your husband, is he home
Laurel Hedare: I’m here, why on earth would he be home

There’s a scene featuring the "Catwoman" in a New York club and she starts whipping people on the dance floor…literally, with a whip and they go flying out of the way, not wanting to get hit. You try that for real in New York and you really would get whipped.
