I'm going to be very frankly honest by giving my opinion on this movie, it's not all that, but hell, Halle Berry is in it! One reason why I went to go see it because I was celebrating my birthday. The movie is good, but it's not what you all think. The character and the setting of the scene has been changed. The scene does not take place in Gotham City. And instead of Halle playing the role of Selina Kyle who is really Catwoman, she plays Patience Price, a graphic designer for Hedare Beauty Cosmetics Company that is on the verge of releasing a anti-aging product. Patience happens to find out a dark secret her employer is hiding then ends up in the middle of a corporate conspiracy. Patience saved a Egyptian Mai cat who ended up saving her life or should I say bringing her back to life, which changed her life forever. She becomes CatWoman with the ability of having strength, speed agility and ultra-keen senses of a cat. CatWoman is a balance of a thin line of "good" and "bad". Halle does do her own stunts in the movie, so there is no double of her. All you see is Halle herself jumping, flipping, kicking, whipping the bad guys with her whip, and even riding a black motorcycle.
The production has lack alot of potentials to get everyone to see the movie and it's certainly not your average summer blockbuster hit. After the release of the movie, it came in 3rd place over the weekend and gross 30 million dollars. To blame someone for alot of mistakes in making this movie, it all points in the direction of director Jean-Christoph 'Pitof" Comar. After all I did enjoy the movie and seeing fine and sexy Ms. Berry in that sexy black leather and hearing her puuuuurrrrrrrrrring. There is an option. You can go see the movie because Halle in it or you can wait when it comes on cable or dvd, if you don't want to waste your money.
