CATWOMAN (Theatrical Release USA 2004)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.1|5.0 Stars ììì

—a lame, laugh-out-loud farce—with actress Halle Berry looking great on screen, but definitely not the best casting choice for this film, shows her as too bashful and ‘silly’. Sharon Stone fails to produce the ‘stone cold’ persona she needs to portray while Benjamin Bratt just tries to hold what’s left of this movie together.

Patience Phillips (Halle Berry) who works for an age rejuvenation company as an artist and graphics designer finds that the age rejuvenation product her company is planning to market is harmful to the human body. Caught eavesdropping on the findings of the head laboratory scientist and his recommendations to the company’s owner, Patience Phillips is murdered. She washes up onto a rocky beach where a pack of cats surround her. The pack leader walks toward her and breathes into her a type of special cat breath.  Immediately her eye changes to a cat’s eye and she eventually awakens as if nothing has happened. After returning home, she finds that she has been transformed into a different creature and gradually assumes the persona of Catwoman.

Additional Thanks

Good Work for Director Pitof. Thank you to Executive Producers Bruce Berman, Michael Fottrell, Robert Kirby, Benjamin Melniker, and Michael Uslan for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Tom Lone (Benjamin Bratt), Laurel Hedare (Sharon Stone), George Hedare (Lambert Wilson), and Ophelia (Frances Conroy).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. If the only thing in a movie you appreciate is glamour and sexy looks—without much of a story—then the cameras in this film are all over sexy and glamour and not much else.
